Cleaning Dark Steel: how to look after your bowl properly.

Cleaning recommendations for your dark steel bowl

  • To maintain the high-quality Dark Steel look:
  • You should completely avoid acidic cleaning agents that contain chloric, hydrochloric, acetic or citric acid.
  • To avoid damaging the surface of your Dark Steel bowl, do not clean with steel wool, abrasive items or polishing agents. These cause scratches and can damage the stainless steel surface over time.
  • You should also avoid direct prolonged contact with rusty iron items like cast-iron pans, as these can leave unsightly marks.

Daily cleaning

For everyday cleaning, use a damp microfibre cloth or a soft sponge with a little washing-up liquid. Go over the wet sink thoroughly with the soft side of the sponge and washing-up liquid to loosen any dirt. Pay particular attention to the corner radii and the basket strainer, as these are the areas where most of the dirt particles usually settle.
