In Italy, generously-sized spoons of this design are used to serve healthy portions of polenta. Closer to home, we find this spoon has become an ultra-versatile addition to a well-outfitted kitchen: an elegant courier for skillfully delivering risotto, mashed potatoes, or smaller vegetables to patiently waiting plates.
To ensure the longevity of our flatware, we recommend washing by hand (but please do not pre-soak). If you have hard water (water with a high mineral content) we do not recommend using a dishwasher, as elements in the water may cause tarnishing or pitting of your pewter. If not, we recommend cleaning using a liquid dishwasher soap, on the lowest heat setting, for both the washing and drying cycles. Please allow your dinnerware to cool before handling.
