Product Care - NAMIYA

Wood & Bamboo 

Wooden items are not suited to use in an (industrial) dishwasher. The surface of the product can be maintained by regularly rubbing it with vegetable oil.

Wooden items must be washed in warm soapy water and then dried directly.

Wood & Bamboo is a natural product and will show wear and tear after a period of use.

Melamine

Melamine may be washed in an (industrial) dishwasher. Do not use any scouring agents, bleaches, scouring pads or metal objects to clean melamine, as this will leave scratches on the melamine.

Melamine is not suitable for use in the oven or microwave.

Melamine products are suitable for use in a bain-marie or chafing dish. When using melamine in chafing dishes, it is important that you pour sufficient water into
the container.

Our melamine products are inspected and tested and approved food safe. Usage temperatures between -20 and 70 degrees.

Porcelain

All our porcelain is suitable for use in (industrial) dishwashers, microwaves and ovens. Gold decorated items are not suitable for microwave use, due to aggressive rinse and temperatures in dishwashers, golden decorated products are recommend to wash by hand. It is important that you follow the guidelines issued by dishwasher manufacturers. Excessive rinse temperatures and overdosing of washing agents may damage the glaze. Most damage occurs during loading and unloading a dishwasher. Preferably

use special dishwasher baskets (racks) that prevent contact with other porcelain items during the wash cycle and at loading/unloading.

When removing food residues beforehand, use a plastic scraper to prevent damage to the glaze. Never use metal objects or cutlery for this.

Stone & Earthenware

All our Stone & Earthenware is suitable for use in (industrial) dishwashers and microwaves, oven use is not recommend as the is a chance of breakage due
to temperature shock. It is important that you follow the guidelines issued by dishwasher manufacturers. Excessive rinse temperatures and overdosing of washing agents may damage the glaze. Most damage occurs during loading and unloading a dishwasher. Preferably use special dishwasher baskets (racks) that prevent contact with other porcelain items during the wash cycle and at loading/unloading.

Glass

All glasses may be washed in an (industrial) dishwasher. We advise using dishwasher baskets to minimise breakages during the washing cycle and to use a non-caustic cleaning agent when washing the glasses. This is because caustic cleaning agents can damage the surface of the glasses and turn them dull. Always wash new glasses first before initial use. Never wash glasses at temperatures above 60 degrees. Higher temperatures can cause dirt to become baked onto the glass.

Never pour cold liquids into a hot glass as this can cause the glass to shatter. It is also advisable to gently prime a glass with hot water before pouring hot liquid into it.
