we so very often get asked the question when we sell sets of Bakelite flatware and other Bakelite kitchenware - "can i put it in the dishwasher." Our answer is always the same - we do not recommend it and would not advise it." It is however, up to the individual to do so or not - once they own it. we love handling the Bakelite kitchenware and washing it and seeing it shine is also part of the fun! any thoughts on this?
now, how hard could it be to wash by hand, for instance, this wonderful set of Bakelite ice tea spoons? (see below attachment) !
Shown is Henry's Original Tomato and Steak Knife and I swear by them. The ultra thin blade slices tomatoes like butter ~ simply pierce the skin with the tip of the blade, and these work beautifully cutting meat! This Lucite-Bakelite combo is rare as they are usually found in yellow Bakelite that has oxidized to gold or light brown. I do have some for sale in the solid Bakelite handle and have two with original papers that I need to add to my eBay store. Grab them directly from me if you wish. Barbara
we are adding this adorable vintage bakelite child's set to the shop today - all three pieces - to the shop today - what helps make it unique is the little vintage plastic flatware caddy it comes in - don't think we ever saw one like this before - don't think it was ever used - bright and shiny!
