Before each wash, make sure you have a plastic mat as a base for the objects and use a water-saving cap to prevent bumps and scratches. Washable also in dishwashers with shorter cycle and with lower temperature. load the dishwasher in such a way that the objects do not touch each other.
The cutlery can also be washed in the dishwasher, with the exception of the salad set because their ends do not withstand high temperatures. If dishwasher washing is used, for which it is advisable to use neutral detergents that are not excessively aggressive and without the presence of lemon, use separating baskets to separate the cutlery to prevent them from scratching. Adopt a soaking or a pre-wash if possible to remove coarse food residues. As soon as the washing cycle, cold rinsing and drying has finished, remove the cutlery from the dishwasher. It is good practice to ensure perfect drying using a soft cloth. Knives should not be immersed in saline solutions for long, but should be removed from the dishwasher within a short period of time after the wash cycle, because the chrome stainless steel blade is sensitive to prolonged contact with salt solutions. In the case of manual washing, use soft sponges (no scotch brite or sponges impregnated with abrasives) with neutral detergent, making sure to store the perfectly dry cutlery. Store the cutlery in a dry place.
