Can we wash the slate in a dishwasher?
No, mild kitchen cleaner and a damp cloth is the best way. Putting the slate through a dishwasher will ruin the felt feet and possibly block your filter.
Are Slated Products Food Safe?
All of the Slated Collection is sealed for Food Safety.
Will all the slate look the same?
No, because the slate is hand crafted, irregularities must be expected on the surface and edges. Please also be aware of sharp edges when handling this product. Also the colour & amount of mineral content of the slate will change slightly over time as different seams are quarried.
Is slate smooth?
Here at SLATED we love the undulation of slate, our pieces are not a honed stone, each slate has natural textures and inclusions. There may be small areas of a lighter colour or if you are really lucky flecks of Fool’s Gold.
Please bear in mind it is a natural product, and nature is not always perfect!
How can we look after the slate?
From time to time you might want to rub a good natural oil onto the surface of the slate to enhance its natural colour & contours.
How sturdy is slate?
Slate is one of the most durable, naturally occurring stones readily available; slates, which are found on the roofs of homes and building across the world, typically withstand the elements for two hundred years or more. It is the stone that all synthetic tiles aspire to be.
Slated products are made to last. All our slate products are between 4 and 6 mm thick. But if you drop it, it may break.
How to clean copper?
Our copper pieces are solid copper, and hallmarked to prove it. Over time natural copper can tarnish, there are a few options for cleaning, Brasso, or if you are feeling wild, Tomato ketchup also does the job.
