Product Care

METAL

  • Our fine metal is handcrafted from 100% recycled aluminum. Slight “imperfections” and cooling marks are the hallmark of handmade goods.
  • Occasional use of a non-abrasive metal polish will revive luster. We recommend Simichrome polish which is available from Mariposa or at a local hardware store.
Serveware
  • All products are food-safe and will not tarnish.
  • Handwash in warm water with mild soap and towel-dry immediately.
  • Do not place in the dishwasher or microwave.
  • Coat lightly with vegetable oil or spray to avoid staining. Avoid extended contact with water and acid-based foods.
  • Cutting directly on the metal surface will scratch the finish.
  • Warm to 350 ̊ for hot foods. Freeze or chill for summer entertaining. **Not recommended for enamel pieces
