SILVERWARE AND DISHWASHER
Danialli silverware can be washed in the dishwasher, provided that you follow a few simple rules:
- Before the first use, wash your silverware by hand with a gentle liquid dish detergent.
- In the dishwasher, use traditional, chlorine-free powders or tablets. Do not use liquid or gel products, which often contain chlorine.
- If you use a water softening product in the dishwasher, avoid washing your silverware during the first cycle.
- Follow dishwasher instructions concerning the hardness of the water. Water with a high mineral content can be corrosive.
- Use a soft sponge and soapy water. Never use a corrosive or abrasive product.
- Never let your silverware come into contact with bleach.
- Promptly dry with a soft cloth.
PRODUCTS THAT DO NOT REQUIRE ANY CARE
All Danialli silverware designs do not require any special care. Do not use household cleaning products, which could damage the finish. To give an extra shine use stainless steel polish and a soft dry cloth.
All Danialli flatware can be put in the dishwasher. If it isn’t possible to wash silverware immediately after use, wipe off any remaining food with paper towels and then rinse in hot water.
CLEANING STAINLESS STEEL CUTLERY
Stainless steel is the most popular material choice for cutlery. We only use the best quality of 18/10 stainless steel in Danialli flatware sets. 18/10 relates to the chromium and nickel contents of the steel respectively. To keep your cutlery looking its best, there are a few things to remember:
- Always rinse your cutlery before placing it in the dishwasher; prolonged contact with certain consumables, e.g. salt, vinegar, eggs, tomato and certain acids, can cause pitting and staining.
- A higher chromium content gives stainless steel knife blades the necessary sharper edge; however, this also makes them more susceptible to corrosion.
- Never leave stainless steel cutlery to soak or in damp conditions as this can cause staining which will require polishing to remove.
