Caring for cutlery or flatware

... the do's and don'ts

Posting date: 25th April 2007 21:11

"Stainless" steel really means "stain resistant" and even the best cutlery, made from 18/10 stainless steel, needs a bit of care to keep it looking its best.

DOs
Wash by hand - probably the best way to clean cutlery even if it is dishwasher safe

Use the dishwasher if the cutlery is marked as dishwasher safe

Polish your cutlery regularly with a dry cloth to retain the natural shine.

Dry your cutlery thoroughly after washing

Use a stainless steel cream to remove stains


DON'Ts
Leave the cutlery to soak or use the pre wash function on the dishwasher as this is the same as a soak.

Leave the cutlery to drain or drip dry if you want to avoid drip smears and marks.

Repeatedly leave your cutlery - especially knives to "steam" dry in the dishwasher for long periods as the moist atmosphere can produce corrosion.

Use a scourer to remove stains

Mix silverware with stainless steel cutlery as the silver can get permenantly marked by the steel.
