Natural stone is modest. And that's exactly how it wants to be treated. There is no need for special cleaning agents or complex knowledge of what to do. We tried it: Stonemade is stackable and dishwasher safe. We still prefer to clean it by hand and simply use clear, warm water. Every now and then it's good to rub the dishes with a few drops of olive oil, which gives them a velvety surface. Stonemade is probably the only tableware that becomes even more beautiful over time.
Do the dishes scratch easily?
Regular forks and knives are no problem for our stone tableware and leave no traces. However, caution is advised with ceramic knives, as their blades are harder than our stone and can create small scratches.
Are natural stone dishes dishwasher safe?
All our plates and bowls can be washed in the dishwasher. However, the gentler variant, as with any other tableware, is to wash it by hand with lukewarm water.
Do the plates and bowls discolour over time?
Juices, dark vinegar or even soy sauce are no problem for our untreated stone dishes and leave no long-term color residues. However, we recommend not storing these foods in our plates and bowls for long periods of time, for example overnight.
How can I take extra care of tableware made of natural stone?
The plates and bowls become more and more unique over time and develop their patina. If you want to keep the velvety feel of the untreated natural stone, you can rub the dishes with a few drops of olive oil from time to time. This gives our Nordic Gray an additional deep gray look.
Are the bowls and plates very sensitive to temperature?
One of the particularly pleasant properties of natural stone is that it tolerates extreme heat and cold very well. We put our bowls and plates in the oven, we put them on the hot plate, we cool our ice cream in the freezer and put provisions in the fridge. A very pleasant side effect is that stones store heat and cold well.
