The MAXIME cutlery is harmonically well-thought-out down to the smallest detail. Designed by Theresa Rand, the modern cutlery offers a simple yet elegant design. The handles, colour-coordinated with the blomus range are made of a combination of matt brushed stainless steel and a synthetic resin, POM (polyoxymethylene), which is used to produce precision parts. This combines various positive characteristics: In addition to their pleasant feel, the handles are scratch-resistant, easy to clean and dishwasher-safe. Stainless Steel and POM are recyclable. We recommend not to use any caustic or aggressive cleaning agents. When washing by hand, please clean the product in the direction of the brushed surface to avoid the risk of scratches on the surface. Never use steel wool, abrasive sponges or hard brushes to remove tenacious stains. Otherwise scratches can occur. After cleaning, we recommend to dry the cutlery with a soft cloth in the direction of the finish. However, we advise against polishing in order to preserve the special matt appearance of the surface. In principle, stainless steel is an easy-care material, but it is not maintenance-free. Therefore, we particularly recommend rinsing off residues of acidic food immediately after use. There is a risk that rust may develop on the stainless steel as a result of the acid effect.
