Heritage Wood Collection Care
While the Heritage Collection wood pieces are Mango Wood, these pieces have a food-safe polyurethane coating, and therefor the use of oil on this collection is not advised. Instead, simply wipe with a damp cloth. Due to the metal inlay creating “crevices” on the surface, it is not advised to place non-solid or “wet” food directly on the surface.
Antiquity Wood Care
Mango Wood is a natural product that reacts to its environment. Although it is a durable hardwood, it is a good idea to periodically apply edible oil, such as olive oil or walnut oil to keep the wood from “drying out” and keeping its natural sheen.
Clean serving pieces after each use by wiping with warm soapy water, rinsing immediately and wiping with a soft dry cloth.
Again, rub with olive oil or walnut oil, protecting it from acidic foods, maintaining its beauty for years to come.
Do not submerge in water.
For best results and to prolong use, hand wash flatware.
Hand wash using a mild, non-abrasive dishwashing soap and towel.
To avoid pitting and staining caused by acidic foods and mineral salts from tap water, flatware should be washed and dried soon after use.
A stainless steel polish may be used to remove stains.
Do not clean with an abrasive soap, sponge or steel wool.
Do not allow stainless steel flatware to soak. Utensils must be properly cleaned soon after use to avoid staining.
