Mariposa's Brillante aluminum serveware is individually handcrafted in expert foundries from 100% recycled aluminum and available in many beautiful design collections. Slow, careful sandcasting allows for a detailed play of textures and smoothness, of light and shadows.
Care and Use:
Always handwash your Brillante in warm sudsy water soon after each use (also before using for the first time) and towel-dry immediately.
Brillante exceeds FDA requirements for aluminum serveware.
Slight cooling and buffing marks are a natural result of handcrafting.
NEVER put Brillante in the dishwasher or microwave.
Coat Brillante lightly with vegetable oil or spray when serving salads or salty fopods. Avoid prolonged storage of acidic foods. Standing water will cause staining.
Cutting directly on any metal surface will scratch the finish.
Occasional use of a non-abrasive metal polish will revive Brillante's soft luster.
Warm to 325 F (140 C) for hot food with the exception of the Tray Chic collection which includes enamel, melamine and polycarbonate serveware. Freeze or chill for summer entertaining.
Enamelware and Tray Chic:
Avoid using sharp knives to cut directly on the surface.
High heat can adversely affect any polycarbonate surface. However, warm foods can be served comfortably.
Polycarbonate pieces without aluminum handles are dishwasher safe using the air dry setting and gentle detergent.
