Purchase Rada Cutlery for yourself or as gifts!
Rada Mfg. Co. will replace any product manufactured by our company returned to us due to defects in material or workmanship.
Our silver brushed aluminum handle cutlery should only be hand washed and dried immediately. Our black stainless steel resin handle cutlery may be hand washed or placed in a dishwasher. Proper washing and care will maximize the beauty and performance of your cutlery.
Care Instructions – Hand Wash vs Dishwasher
Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:
- Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge.
- Recent government mandated changes to phosphate-free dishwashing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals – including stainless steel blades and in particular our brushed aluminum handles.
- Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that is incompatible with fine cutlery.
Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and dishwasher. The combination of these three factors affect the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.
