Care Instructions – Hand Wash vs Dishwasher

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:

  • Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge.
  • Recent  government-mandated  changes to phosphate-free dishwashing detergents create a harsh environment for metals – including stainless steel blades and in particular our brushed aluminum handles.
  • Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that is incompatible with fine cutlery.

Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and  dishwasher. The combination of these three factors  affects  the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.
