Prior to first-time use, please rinse with warm water and mild dishwashing liquid.
After each use, promptly wash off residues and food stains with a soft sponge.
Although we have customers who wash this flatware in dishwashers with no issues, we cannot guarantee that the dishwasher would not affect the exterior finishes as there are various factors involved (eg. type of dishwasher, dishwasher detergent, etc.). As such, it is recommended to only handwash the flatware to preserve the exterior as well as possible.
However, if you use the dishwasher, please wash the flatware at a temperature lower than 104°F / 40°C. Check if your dishwasher features an eco-friendly program that operates on a low temperature. Too high temperatures can result in a chemical reaction and cause the coating to fade. We also recommend testing 1-2 pieces of flatware in the dishwasher for ~1 month before putting the remaining pieces in the dishwasher.
When washing, use mild dishwashing liquid only and avoid citrus-scented, chlorine-based and anti-limescale detergents. Do not use abrasive sponges or scrubs.
After each wash, dry with a soft towel to prevent water marks, discoloration and film buildup.
When storing your flatware pieces, place in a dry and well-ventilated area.
Keep spoons and forks separately from the knives to avoid scratches on the surface.
