Taking good care of your belongings makes good sense. It prolongs their lifespan, which
is good for your finances as well as the planet. Follow our care guide and keep your things
beautiful and usable for many years to come.
Dinnerware - stoneware & porcelain
Stoneware and porcelain are sturdy materials burned at high temperatures. The higher the
temperature, the sturdier it gets – and our stoneware and porcelain are burned at very high
temperatures above 1200° C. As long as you take certain precautions, our stoneware and
porcelain are dishwasher, oven and microwave safe and can also go in the freezer. But never put
normal stoneware and porcelain into a preheated oven or directly from a warm oven onto a cool
tabletop. Big temperature differences might cause it to crack and break, which is why it should
always be heated up and cooled down slowly.
Glass – sodaglass
Our ordinary glasses are made of soda glass, which is easy to care for. Just follow our care
guide – and make sure not to drop them on the floor – and your glasses will stay beautiful
and usable for many years. You can easily wash your soda glasses together with dishes and
cutlery, as long as you choose a short cycle with temperatures below 55° C. Apart from that, we
recommend that you follow our care guide for crystal glass.
Cutlery - stainless steel
All our cutleries are made from stainless steel. Stainless steel is a very robust material, which is
easy to care for. You should, however, always follow our care guide, since stainless steel should
maybe rather be called rust-resistant steel, because all steel – also stainless steel – can rust, if it
is not treated correctly. Cutlery should always be rinsed or washed immediately after use, since
acid from certain foods can damage it – but never let it soak. If certain measures are taken, all
our cutleries are dishwasher safe. Make sure to use dishwasher detergent and rinse aid from
the same brand and to dose it correctly – it must not contain chlorine. Always place the knives
in a separate dishwasher basket, since the blades are made from less rust resistant steel than
the rest of the cutlery. Do not overload the dishwasher, as cutlery needs proper space in order
to be thoroughly washed and rinsed. As soon as the wash is completed, you should open the
dishwasher door to let the moisture out. Rust is tiny rust particles that are being swirled around
in the dishwasher during wash cycles and thereby end up on cutlery and other things made
Placemats – leather and silicone
Always remove spilled foods and fluids immediately, since they can cause stains. The placemats
should always be cleaned after use, which can easily be done with a damp cloth and some
mild washing-up liquid. Never put your placemats in the dishwasher and avoid contact with
warm things such as pots and pans, folding as well as prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
Now and then the placemats can be rolled “the opposite” way to make sure that they keep their
completely flat shape.
Teak wood is an extremely solid material, and, if treated properly, the hard wood is almost
impossible to wear out. Never put your wooden cutting board or other wood products in the
dishwasher. Wash it instead by hand, dry it thoroughly with a dishtowel, and let it air dry before
putting it away. To keep the wood from drying out, it should regularly be treated with a suitable
and food approved oil. Unpleasant odors are easily removed with salt and lemon – just sprinkle
a tablespoon of salt on your cutting board and rub it around with half a lemon.
Let your new linen textiles soak for about 24 hours before the first wash. Coloured linen should
be soaked in cold water, while naturally coloured linen should be soaked in warm water. Always
choose a gentle cycle with a short and gentle spin, and make sure to use a washing powder or
liquid without chlorine or optical brightener. Never put linen in the dryer, but smooth and stretch
it after each wash and hang it to dry - avoid strong sunlight. The wrinkled look is part of the
charm of linen, and it is best to avoid ironing and mangling. If you choose to iron or mangle
your linen textiles anyway, make sure to do it at low temperatures before they are completely
dry. Be aware that pure linen might shrink 5-7%.
Our crystal glasses are made in Germany from lead free crystal of the highest quality. They are
produced in one piece to obtain extra robustness, and as long as you follow our care guide and
exercise normal caution, they will stay beautiful and usable for many years.
The crystal glasses are dishwasher safe, but you must take certain measures to minimize the
risk of corrosion – also called glass disease. Glass disease is seen as a cloudy looking deposit
on the glass and can happen to both cheap and expensive glass, also glasses that have been
tested as being dishwasher safe. Always make sure that the dishwasher is properly adjusted to
the hardness of the water and to dose dishwasher detergent, salt and rinse aid accordingly.
You should only put glasses in the dishwasher, and make sure they are placed safely and with
proper space between each glass. Always use the dishwahers glass cycle or another short cycle
with temperatures below 55° C. Open the dishwasher door as soon as the cycle is completed
and unload the glasses and dry them thoroughly with a dishcloth.
