Wilton Armetale advises never to clean its serving ware in a dishwasher.

The Wilton Armetale company sells a variety of types of serving ware that grace elegant and special occasions, as informal as a dinner party or as formal as a wedding. Many of the "Armetale" metal pieces can be used to bake, cook, broil, or chill foods; others are for serving only. Over time, Armetale serving ware may become discolored. If this happens to yours, apply a baking soda paste to clean it.


Step 1

Place a few spoonfuls of baking soda into a bowl.
