As with all Nambé metal pieces, function stands beside beauty in purpose. The proprietary eight-metal aluminum-based alloy has the luster of silver and the solidity of iron. It can be preheated to 500 degrees or chilled in the freezer; this coupled with its superior temperature retention properties makes Nambé Alloy markedly useful for cooking and serving. Nambé Alloy does not contain silver or lead and therefore does not tarnish; it won't chip, crack, or break. Avoid using your Nambé Alloy with acidic foods, and never place it in the microwave or dishwasher. Hand wash your Nambé with mild detergent and water, then dry immediately with a soft clean cloth. An occasional application of Nambé Polish restores any gleam lost to time and use.Care
A light coating of vegetable oil applied to preheated or chilled Nambé Alloy for each use will provide a protective barrier for highly acidic foods and help protect the finish
Use wooden or soft rubber utensils to avoid scratches
Remove dust and fingerprints with a soft, damp cloth
Use care when placing heavier Nambé pieces on glass surfaces
Never put Nambé Alloy pieces in the microwave
Do not put Nambé Alloy in the dishwasher or leave in standing water for long periods of time
Do not leave food in your Nambé Alloy for longer than three hours; food left for long periods will result in discoloration
Citrus fruits, peeled or unpeeled, can cause discoloration; highly acidic or salty foods, such as dairy, mayonnaise, tomatoes, other fruits, and vinegars, can cause discoloration and/or pitting
For Candleholders: To remove wax from candleholders, place them in the freezer until chilled and remove wax; wash with a soft cloth in hot soap and water to remove any wax that remains and dry with a soft cloth
For Peppermills: To clean your mill, wipe its body with a soft, damp cloth; do not immerse it in water; and always allow your mill to dry completely after cleaning and before filling To remove scratches from your Nambé Alloy: The metal surface should be dry and wiped free of dust or surface dirt prior to application. Apply Nambé Polish sparingly with a soft dry cloth. Rub gently in a back and forth motion until black residue appears, usually after 10 to 15 seconds. Buff lightly with a soft polishing cloth to remove residue.To remove scratches from your Nambé Alloy: The metal surface should be dry and wiped free of dust or surface dirt prior to application.
