CARE: VIETRI flatware is made of the highest quality 18/10 stainless steel. Stainless steel is not stain proof. Ingredients found in tea, coffee, salad dressing, vinegar, and salt can cause discoloration. Pitting or spotting is usually caused by hard water or salty foods. Our flatware is dishwasher safe unless otherwise noted. We recommend using the low energy/dry cycle with the handles placed up in the basket. Use a lemon-free, mild, and non-abrasive detergent that does not contain chlorine, alcohol, or perfume. Overly hot dishwashers may tarnish the necks of flatware. Dry flatware with a soft towel immediately after washing to prevent mineral or stain buildup and streaking. Do not leave acrylic handled flatware in the sun for a long period of time.
PRODUCT MATERIALS: VIETRI flatware is made of 18/10 stainless steel, the highest quality alloy available with 18% chrome for maximum corrosion resistance and 10% nickel for a silver-like luster.
PRODUCT REGION: Lombardy is one of the northernmost regions of Italy. Home to Milan and one of the most prosperous areas of the country, it is known for being on the cutting edge of design. Its history can be traced back to the 2nd millennium BC, and ceramic artifacts from this time exist today.
