METHOD OF “CURING” STONE PLATES

Our stone dishes have been subjected to strict sanitary controls, it is a noble material suitable for contact with food of all kinds, allowing with its color an elegant and modern presentation. As it is a natural product, we must first free the plates from any type of dust adhered to them; to do this we will brush them, one by one, with water and a non-metallic brush or sponge. We do not recommend the use of aluminum scourers, steel wool, or metal spiked brushes, as they could scratch and damage the surface of the plate. Then wash them with soap and water (it can be done in the dishwasher) and let them dry.

Once they are dry, we will impregnate them with abundant oil for food use (it is not recommended to use used oil), making sure that it covers all the surfaces and penetrates the entire plate as much as possible. We will wash the dishes again with more water and soap and we can use them normally. These operations can be repeated as many times as necessary throughout the life of the stone plates.
