Sterling silver and silver-plated metal should be washed by hand with a soft sponge and soapy water. After washing, they must be carefully dried with a clean, dry cloth.
To maintain components made of precious wood – handles, etc. – simply wipe the surface with a damp cloth.
All Puiforcat cutlery may be machine washed. However, we recommend taking certain precautions and choosing the right cleaning products:
Powder detergent is preferable to chlorinated liquids, which should be used sparingly.
Prior to each washing, be sure to separate sterling silver or silver-plated cutlery from steel items.
For an optimal flow of water, knives should be placed in the silverware basket with the blades facing downward.
Remove the cutlery at the end of the cycle, or at the very least leave the dishwasher door cracked to avoid condensation spots on the blades.
To prevent scratches on the knives, ensure that they do not knock together. Nevertheless, it is natural for the finish to evolve with continued use and washing.
The Couteaux d’Orfèvre collection requires particular techniques for upkeep. Hand washing is recommended to preserve the beauty of the exotic wood on the handle.
Once rinsed, dry the knives with a soft cloth. The steel blades feature Evercut© technology, and thus never require sharpening.
