Are all ORNAMIN articles dishwasher safe? +
All dishes (except placemats and trays) are absolutely dishwasher safe and designed to meet the requirements of the communal catering. They can therefore also be rinsed several times a day in the dishwasher at home or in industrial dishwashers, as required. Please follow the use and care instructions which are available on our website, in the ORNAMIN catalogue and as a PDF download.
Does the tableware contain harmful plasticisers? +
No. During production, we do not use plasticisers that are not suitable for food as well as heavy metal based colour pigments or bisphenol A. ORNAMIN has been producing high-quality reusable tableware since 1955. Certified raw materials suitable for contact with food are used. Production takes place exclusively in Minden (Westphalia), i.e. the products are made in Germany and are checked for compliance with the legal regulations for the protection of the consumer by regular unannounced inspections by the Veterinary and Food Control Office of Minden-Lübbecke (Germany) several times a year.
Do ORNAMIN cups and plates discolour due to fruit teas or tomato soup? +
The tableware is designed for daily private and professional use. Please make sure especially with tea and coffee - due to their intensive and relatively aggressive ingredients - that cups and mugs are cleaned in the dishwasher as soon as possible after use, otherwise deposits can occur. Discolouration due to tomato soup is not known so far.
Do knives leave strong scratches on plates and boards? +
Since your tableware is made of the high-quality plastic and is also given a special protective layer during the manufacturing process, the surface of the tableware is particularly resistant to scratches and discolouration. During daily use, please avoid processing the dishes with steel sponges or scouring agents and use chlorine-free dishwashing liquid as otherwise the highly polished and compacted surface will be permanently damaged.
