Slate as a natural product can have slight variations in colour, structure and size, which are unavoidable due to the material’s characteristics.
Slate is not oven-proof, dishwasher-safe or microwave-safe.
Please clean these items by using a damp cloth and pH-neutral detergents only. Please do not use abrasive cleansers / scouring sponges, as the slate surface might be attacked or scratched. Note that it is difficult to remove stains (esp. grease) from natural slate. To maintain a longterm good look, slate may be treated with cooking oil from time to time. Be aware that prolonged contact with high-acid food (particularly citric acid or fruit acid) can affect the surface of the slate item.
Please note that slate products chip easily, which can result in sharp edges. Due to the material thickness of these articles and the high-quality processing of the edges a higher durability is given than with classic, black slate. Nevertheless please use slate products with utmost care.
