Maintenance

Stainless steel is not generally maintenance free. A light and regular wash is best to remove deposits (such as salt) which can cause corrosion. As a guide, stainless steel should be washed if the glass requires cleaned.

For best results wash with warm soapy water, rinse well and wipe dry. It is essential that abrasive cleaners or those containing chlorides or bleach are not used as they will damage the surface
