Porselein product care

Porcelain

All of our porcelain is safe to be used in commercial dishwashers, microwaves and ovens. It is important to follow the guidelines of the dishwasher manufacturer. Excessive coil temperatures or use of detergent may cause damage to the glaze. Most damages occur when placing dishes in, or removing them from the dishwasher. It is recommended to use a dishwasher basket to prevent contact with other items.

When removing excess food residue a plastic scraper should be used to prevent the glaze from being damaged. Never use metal objects or cutlery.

Cutlery and other metal objects, for example pans, should never be washed simultaineously as this may cause metal marking. Remove metal markings with a soft abrasive or cleanser for ceramic cookers.

Melamine product care

Melamine

Melamine is a robust, highly scratch, chip and break resistant plastic that if cared for correctly can provide a great value alternative to ceramics.

Use plastic or rubber scrapers to remove excess food residue before washing, as metal utensils or abrasives may damage or scratch the products surface.

Do not use abrasive detergents or bleaches when washing, as this may stain or damage the products surface.

Melamine products are dishwasher safe but are not suitable for use in ovens or microwaves and are designed to be used in temperatures from -20 to +70ºC.

Melamine is suitable for use in chafing dishes and bain maries within the above temperature guidelines. When using melamine in combination with chafing dishes it is important to use a sufficient amount of water.

Glas product care

Glass

Our range of glassware is designed to be washed in commercial dishwashers. To ensure the ongoing quality of the product we recommend the following.

All new glasses should be washed before first use. We recommend the use of dishwasher baskets to minimize the risk of cracks. Glassware should not be washed at temperatures above 60°C as this can cause debris to be baked onto the glasses during the washing process. Glasses that are found to have been cracked or chipped in use should be disposed of and not placed into the dishwasher. Non-caustic detergents should be used as caustic detergents can damage and dull the surface of the glass.

To prolong the life of hot drinks glasses we recommend pre-heating the glasses by running them under a hot tap. Do not put cold liquids straight into glassware that may be hot or warm as this can cause cracks.

Cutlery

Occasionally, after first use, stains arise. These complaints are most likes caused by the use of the cutlery. All of our 18/10 cutlery, unregarded brand or price, is made of the same type of steel. On old, scratched and dull cutlery the stains are less noticeable, but on new cutlery it clearly shows. We recommend the following to ensure ongoing quality and the prevention of stains.

Before first use:

Wash by hand before first use, do not place cutlery in the dishwasher before being hand washed.

Guidelines

  • Remove excess foodstuffs as soon as possible, especially in the beginning.
  • It is best not to wash cutlery simontaineously with aluminum pans (and similar) or stainless steel cutlery (electrolysis* may cause stains/dents on the cutlery).
  • Our cutlery is dishwasher safe and should not be left to soak prior to dishwashing. 
  • Keep knifes separate from the rest of the cutlery when placing in the dishwasher.
  • Place knifes upright in the dishwasher.
  • Cutlery should not be cleaned with abrasive cleaning products or detergents as this may scratch, damage or stain the surface of the product.
  • Once cleaned, the product should be dried immediately or removed from the dishwasher to avoid prolonged contact with water.

* An electrolytic reaction that will spot and pit the stainless steel.

RVS product care

Stainless Steel

All of our stainless steel products are (commercial) dishwasher safe. To ensure ongoing quality and to prevent stains we recommend the following.

  • Be careful with salty and sour products. Vinegar or lemon juice for example may affect the surface. Polish stainless steel immediately when it comes into contact with such products. Otherwise white spots and dents may appear.
  • Do not let stainless steel become too hot. Blue/brown stripes may appear which can only be removed with professional stainless steel maintenance products.
  • Do not use steel wool or abrasives, this may scratch the surface.
  • Stains on products can easily be removed with a cotton cloth and several drops of salad or olive oil. If necessary, polish the product with a dry cloth.
  • Every now and then you can add a little amount of ammonia to the water and clean the stainless steel with it. Make sure to use a soft cloth or brush to prevent the surface from scratching. 

Bamboo fibre product care

Bamboo fibre

Bamboo fibre is a very robust and natural material. It can withstand the cold from the refrigerator and even the freezer and can indirectly* be heated to 140ºC. Besides that, all bamboo fibre products are (commercial) dishwasher safe.

Bamboo fibre products are not suitable for use in microwaves. We do not recommend cleaning the product with a scouring sponge or stainless steel objects to prevent scratches. We also advise not to use a detergent or bleach when cleaning the product.

* Do not place directly on the source of heat.

Hout product care

Wood

All types of wood are not suitable for dishwashing and should be washed in warm soapy water only. Wood can dry out with use, so occasional application of vegetable oil or food safe wood treatment oil will help to keep the original natural appearance and prolong the life of the product.

It should not be left to soak in water, as this will cause damage to the product and should be dried immediately after washing.

Wood is a natural material and will show signs of use after a period of time.

Starting at 500 pieces, wood can be custom made.

Gegalvaniseerd staal product care

Galvanised Steel

Galvanised steel is not suitable for dishwashing or microwaves. Galvanised steel should not come into contact with foodstuffs and should always be protected with one of our greaseproof paper liners.

Cast Iron

Cast iron is ideal for serving dishes directly from the oven, since it can withstand high temperatures. Cast iron is not suitable for use in the dishwasher or microwave.

Cast iron will rust if it isn’t dried immediately after washing. After drying, lightly coat the inside of the pan/product surface with cooking oil. This will help to restore any seasoning that may have been lost during washing.

Enamel

Although enamel forms a very hard cooking surface, it can chip when used incorrectly or when it becomes old. To prolong the life of enamelware we recommend the following:

  • Wash before first use
  • Before use, use a light coating of cooking oil to protect the enamelware from staining and makes the washing easier
  • After use, soaking the product in warm or hot water and gently wash with a liquid detergent
  • Do not use abrasive cleaning pads or gritty soap powders, as they may lead to chips
  • Do not place empty enamelware or allow to boil dry on a hotplate or gas hob.

* Please note that Chipped enamel cookware poses a health risk because enamel chips can end up in food. We recommend that all chipped enamel be disposed of immediately.

Copper

Copper is not suitable for dishwashing and should be hand washed. Clean with a soft sponge, brush or cloth so the surface does not scratch. Do not use abrasive cleaning products and ensure to completely dry the product with a soft cloth after each wash

When the product is displaying signs of tarnish, rub with a soft cloth.

Make sure the copper does not come in direct contact with sour products like vinegar or lemon juice, as this may affect the surface.
