Please rinse with warm water and mild dishwashing liquid prior to your first-time use.
After each use, promptly wash off (using a soft sponge and do not use hot water) residues and food stains as soon as you can.
While 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 so as to preserve the exterior as well as possible.
However, if you decide to use the dishwasher, you may try dishwashing programs with a low temperature of 104°F / 40°C or less as higher temperatures may affect the exterior quality of the flatware. Check if your dishwasher features an eco-friendly program that operates on a low temperature of 104°F / 40°C or less. You may also consider testing 1 or 2 flatware pieces in the dishwasher over a prolonged duration first (say 1 to 2 months), 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 them in a dry and well-ventilated place and keep spoons and forks separately from the knives to avoid scratches on the surface.
Enjoy your flatware!
