Cutlery Care & Maintenance

To ensure long life and to retain the lustre of your cutlery, the following procedures are recommended:

  • Wash immediately after use with a good quality detergent.
  • Do not use harsh washing powders or abrasive cleaning cloths.
  • Do not mix 18/10 grade cutlery with 18/0 when washing as this can cause discolouration and corrosion.
  • If using a dishwasher, always remember to load forks and spoons handles down, tines and bowls up.
  • Place knives in a separate basket with blades facing down to prevent scratching and unwanted contact with other alloys.
  • Remove cutlery from dishwasher immediately at the end of the washing cycle.
  • Store cutlery in dry places and dry completely before storing to prevent water stains.
  • To remove marks from your cutlery, it is recommended that a cleaner or polish for stainless steel is used.
  • Do not use silver polish on stainless steel as it will damage the surface.
