Caring for your Oneida Stainless Steel Item
First time use: Hand wash your new stainless steel piece thoroughly in hot water using a mild soap or detergent. Never use an aluminum pan, Only plastic or stainless steel. Rinse with fresh water. Dry immediately with a soft cloth.
Everyday use: If using a dishwasher, always remember to load forks and spoons handles down, tines and bowls up. Place knives in a separate basket with sharp ends down to prevent scratching and unwanted contact with other alloys. Most larger serving tools or gadgets may need to be placed flat on the top rack of your dishwasher as they are too large for the flatware holder. Remove flatware and serving tools after last rinse cycle and dry by hand. Hot air drying increases the chances of discoloration and corrosion. Do not mix different metals in the same load.
Tip: Never soak items for long periods or overnight.
