Exceptionally pleasant and practical to use. Provençal has a lovely robustness of character and remains one of our best selling ranges after almost half a century of continuous production.

Designed in 1975 when Mellor was the first designer to develop the idea of combining stainless steel with high quality moulded acetal resin. Provençal was very much attuned to the good food revolution of the 1970s with its gently rounded handles and soft curved shapes suggesting Mediterranean cooking, fresh seasonal meals and sociable dining.

It has always been a favourite in modern restaurants, reflecting our increasingly easy-going attitudes to food.

The rounded knife blades are made from high carbon stainless steel for a superior cutting edge. Handles are acetal resin with brass rivets.

Care Instructions

• Not microwave safe
• Dishwasher safe
• Rinse, wash and dry all cutlery after use. Prolonged contact with the acids found in food and mineral salts found in water can attack the metal and cause pitting and staining.
• Remove and hand dry all cutlery as soon as hand washing or machine cycle has finished, especially knife blades. If using a dishwashing machine, load the cutlery basket with the knife blades
pointing downwards.
• Wash silver and stainless steel cutlery separately. If washed alongside other metals a chemical reaction can occur which can cause discolouration.
• Store cutlery in a damp free environment. A canteen box or anti-tarnish rolls are recommended.
• Stainless steel cutlery: If staining occurs, clean with a stainless steel cleaner such as ‘Autosol’ (common causes for staining include strong
detergents, hard water, hot grease, heat and prolonged immersion in vinegar or condiments).
• Do not leave unwashed cutlery for any length of time.
• Do not mix stainless steel, silver plate and sterling silver cutlery in the same basket.
• Do not leave to soak in warm soapy water before washing.
• Do not use abrasive pads or cleaning creams, which will scratch the surface.
• Do not use a ‘rinse and hold’ cycle if machine washing.
• Acetal resin is a thermoplastic with low water absorption and is tough and resilient. Suitable for high temperature dishwashers with no adverse effect. Stubborn grease deposits on the handles can be removed with a damp cloth and mild abrasive cream.
