Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can the bread trays be cooked with?

Q: Do you have a catalog you can send me?

Q: Can I clean my Armetale metal products in the automatic dishwasher?

A: No. We do not recommend using the automatic dishwasher because harsh detergents and hard water may harm the metal's surface.

Q: What can you do to repair the finish on my piece when it has been put in the dishwasher?

A: You can try a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Rub the paste into the piece with a soft cloth then wash the piece with mild soap and water. You may have to do this a few times. When finished the piece may look dull so you can polish it with the Wilton Armetale® Polish or a polish called Nevr Dull. If that doesn't work you can take the piece to a jeweler or trophy shop and have them buff it with a soft cloth buffing wheel.
