Cutipol selects the finest raw materials to produce its flatware pieces. However, even the highest quality stainless steel may stain if not properly taken care. To maintain the look of your Cutipol cutlery throughout the years follow the recommendations below:
- After each use, wash the cutlery in warm water and mild detergent. Avoid using detergents with chlorine or anti-limestone agents.
- Handwash: When hand washing your cutlery, avoid using abrasive cloths or scrubs. Be sure to wash off any food remains as soon as possible after use.
- Dishwasher: If washing your cutlery in a dishwasher, make sure that at the end of cycle the flatware pieces are completely dry. Hand dry them with soft cloth, if still wet. Minimize contact of the flatware with the dishwasher steam. Remove the cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as the cycle has finished and wipe each item with a dry soft cloth, even if the item looks dry.
- Knife Blades: Take extra care with knife blades. Knife blades are made of 420 steel to give them more cutting power and hardness. This means they are less resistant to oxidation . Make sure they are washed straight after use and well dried before storing. They should be kept in a dry place.
