When handwashing Cutipol cutlery, avoid using abrasive scrubs or steel wire scourers. After use, be sure to wash off any food remains as soon as possible with hot water and a neutral detergent.
Your cutlery is dishwasher safe on the condition that you should not use salt or anti-limestone detergents. If you live in a hard water area with high concentrations of minerals or limestone, you should opt for manual cleaning. Minimize prolonged contact with the dishwasher steam by removing it as soon as the wash cycle ends.
After washing by hand or in the dishwasher, to prevent staining (more likely on knife blades) we suggest wiping each item with a soft, dry cloth before storing them.
Take extra care of knife blades. Steel, which gives higher cutting power and hardness, may be less resistance to oxidation. Make sure knives are washed immediately after use and well dried before before putting them away in a dry place.
Due to the percentage of carbon in all knive blades and the existence of copper in Gold and Rose Gold coating, it is advisable not to use aggressive, chlorine-based or anti limescale detergents, as they may stain or rust. After using the flatware, avoid keeping it dirty for a long period of time.
Carefully place the pieces in the dishwasher. To avoid scratches, cutlery should not be in contact with each other, particularly polished and gold plated finishes. We recommend arranging the knives separately in the dishwasher machine.
For darker handles to last longer and maintain a more colorful hue, we suggest applying a moisturizing lotion or a few drops of vegetable oil. If any surface dirt spot appear, you can remove it by filing the handle with sandpaper or other abrasive material - we recommend rubbing gently with a damp Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. This goes for all models with resin handles such as Goa and Mio.
