Product Care & Guidance

Information

Mr Whiteware chosen products are manufactured to provide the robustness and durability required for maximum performance in the hospitality and food service industry.

We want you to be confident in your purchase and gain the maximum life and value from our product range, so we have compiled the following guidelines to assist you.

We recommend for all of our products that are intended to come into contact with foodstuffs to remove any labels or packaging and to wash, rinse and dry before first use.

 

Acacia Wood

Acacia is a durable hard wood from fast growing trees. It's beautiful grain and varied colour gives products a warm rich colour. Correct care of wood products can massively increase their longevity in use.

Acacia wood is not suitable for dishwashing and should be washed in warm soapy water only.

It should not be left to soak in water, as this will cause damage to the product and should be dried immediately after washing.

It should also not be left in direct sunlight and be stored in a cool dry place.

Acacia can dry out with use, so occasional application of vegetable oil or food safe wood treatment oil will help to keep the original natural appearance and prolong the life of the product.

Acacia wood is a natural material and its colour and grain will vary from product to product.

Over a reasonable period of time, depending on the level of usage, you should expect the products surface to show a level of wear and tear due to the nature of wood.

Glassware

Dishwashing

Mr Whiteware range of glassware is designed to be washed in commercial glasswashers.

To ensure the on-going quality of the product we recommend the following.

Washing

All new glasses should be washed before first use. Glassware should not be washed at temperatures above 60°C as this can cause debris to be baked onto the glasses during the washing process.

Glasses that are found to have been cracked or chipped in use should be disposed of and not placed into the glasswasher.

Non-caustic detergents should be used as caustic detergents can damage and dull the surface of the glass.

Storage

To avoid damage to glassware when not in use, we recommend storing glassware in correctly sized compartment glass racks or appropriate storage (shelves or hangers ect)

Do not stack glassware that is not recommended as stackable.

Do not store or place any items in glasses for storage as this can damage and mark the surface of the glass.

Guidance

to prolong the life of hot drinks glasses we recommend pre-heating the glasses by running them under a hot tap. Do not put cold liquids straight into glassware that may be hot or warm as this can cause cracks.

 

Melamine

Melamine is a robust, highly scratch, chip and break resistant plastic that if cared for correctly can provide a great value alternative to ceramics.

Use plastic or rubber scrapers to remove excess food residue before washing, as metal utensils or abrasives may damage or scratch the products surface.

Do not use abrasive detergents or bleaches when washing, as this may stain or damage the products surface.

Melamine products are dishwasher safe

Do not use in ovens or microwaves

Olive wood is not suitable for dishwashing and should only be washed by hand in warm soapy water.

It should never be left to soak in water, as this will cause damage to the product and should be dried immediately after washing.

Do not leave olive wood in direct sunlight and store in a cool dry place.

Olive wood can dry out with use, so frequently apply olive oil ideally after every wash to help nourish the wood and bring back the beauty of the grain. This will help keep the wood's original natural appearance and prolong the life of the product.

Olive wood is a natural product and by its nature the size, shape and finish will vary from piece to piece, this is also however part of its charm.

We recommend following the manufacturer's guidelines for wash temperature, rinse cycle and detergent dosage. Assess water hardness and make sure water softeners are used if required. Wash before using for the first time and ensure items are washed promptly after each use.

Our stainless steel cutlery is dishwasher safe and should not be left to soak prior to dishwashing.

We recommend that immediately, or as soon as possible after use, cutlery should be washed to remove excess foodstuffs as they contain salts, acids and fats which may cause corrosion.
Cutlery should not be cleaned with abrasive cleaning articles or detergents as this may scratch, damage or stain the surface of the product.

Cutlery should be washed in specially made cutlery baskets, which should not be over-filled so as not to impede the flow of water and reduce the effectiveness of the cleaning process.
