DO NOT WASH IN DISHWASHER. The brilliant polished luster of your aluminum will be permanently dulled by the high heat of a dishwasher or oven. To prevent stains, remove all food and liquid â€” especially fatty acids, vinegar or salad dressings â€” from platter and vessels after use or insert a glass liner for food service. It is recommended that just prior to serving, your piece be wiped or sprayed with vegetable oil. By doing so, the oil will act as a barrier against highly acidic or salty foods, which may otherwise dull or discolor the finish. Unlike silver, Arthur Court aluminum products do not require regular polishing. As needed, polish with 100% cotton flannel polishing cloth.
