Caring for your KRA silverware

Our silverware range is hand-forged with stainless steel for durability. Though it is not stain-proof, proper care will preserve the longevity of our cutlery so it can last 6-7 years before wear begins to show.  

Here's how you can learn to care for your silverware.

General care

Although our silverware is dishwasher-friendly, hand washing it with a soft cloth or sponge can help better preserve its colour and lustre.

Hand washing tips:
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners to prevent wear and tear
  • Always dry thoroughly with a cloth to prevent discolouration, water marks, and tarnish
Dishwasher tips:
  • Load spoons and forks with the handles down. Always load knives with the blade down for safety reasons
  • Avoid grouping cutlery of the same type together to allow water to pass through easily for more effective cleaning
  • Ensure cutlery is fully dry post-wash to prevent tarnishing

Special care 

Polished Gold Ayutthaya Cutlery

Polished steel and gold cutlery

In order to retain the shine of your steel and gold cutlery, we recommend polishing your cutlery with white distilled vinegar once in a while, or when you encounter water marks and mineral build up.

  1. Wipe your cutlery down with a soft cloth dipped in white distilled vinegar 
  2. Wash as usual and dry thoroughly

Matte Black Bamboo Cutlery

Matte black cutlery

Crafted from heat-treated stainless steel, matte black cutlery is prone to oxidation at the beginning of its life cycle and will develop a beautiful patina over time. Our matte black cutlery comes pre-oiled for ease of use. To maintain its protective layer against rusting, we highly recommend seasoning your cutlery with cooking oil once in a while.

  1. Lightly grease a kitchen towel with cooking oil
  2. Wipe down your cutlery with the greased kitchen towel
  3. Remove any excess using a clean cloth or kitchen towel, leaving only a thin layer of oil

With frequent seasoning, your matte black cutlery will be less susceptible to oxidation.

Is your cutlery oxidising?

Should you see rust on your cutlery, gently sponge off the rust on the affected area with water. You may also use baking soda for added effectiveness.

  1. Mix water and baking soda into a thick paste and spread it over the affected area
  2. Gently rub out the rust with a soft sponge
  3. Rinse off with warm water and dry thoroughly
  4. Season with cooking oil to form a protective layer
