Is Artina pewter just for decoration or can it also be used?

Use it! Pewter is not only decorative but has very special properties. Drinks, for example, stay cool longer in pewter vessels than in glasses. Try it!

 Do I have to polish pewter regularly?

simple clean it with a soft cloth or wash it by hand with soapy water. For more practical tips, see “Care”.

with a non-binding cost estimate.

Can I serve food on pewter plates?

Naturally! Acidic foods such as tomatoes, oranges, vinegar, … leave traces, however. Therefore, you should wash and dry your

serving plate immediately after the event (don't wait until the next day).

Pewter dishes in the dishwasher?

NO! Pewter requires hand washing with soapy water (without scratching aids) and immediate drying (with a soft cloth) so that no lime stains remain.
