Our Care Guidelines
With a little bit of tender loving care you can get the most out of your Otima™ Home Ware products by following these tips and guidelines:
Ótima™ food savers and lunchboxes are microwave friendly, however you should microwave them on a low heat, no higher than 95˚C.
Take extra care when reheating food on high temperatures that are high in sugar, oil and tartrazine as this may damage the inner lining of the plastic.
Some foods and sauces may cause staining due to the colourants the food may contain.
Always handle hot containers with oven gloves to protect your hands.
Please do not use your Ótima™ on stovetops or in your oven.
Our Ótima™ products are dishwasher friendly. Load your Ótima™ container on the top shelf where they are secure, so that they don’t come loose and touch the heating elements of your dishwasher.
Use warm, soapy water and a soft sponge and/or cloth to wash your Ótima™.
Dry them with a soft dish towel or let them air dry.
Avoid scrubbing with abrasives as this may scratch your container and the lids.
When using basking soda paste, take care to rinse and not to scrub the paste off.
Stickiness, Odours and Stains
Create a paste that consists of baking soda and water.
Coat the affected area with this paste and allow it to stand for some time, then rise.
Add some dishwashing liquid to your paste if you feel necessary.
Leave some lemon juice to stand in the container for a while to remove odours, then rinse.
A mixture of equal parts vinegar and water will also help to remove any odours.
Hand wash your Ótima™ product once you have performed any one of the above steps.
Allow your Ótima™ lunchboxes to dry completely before storing them.
Store them in a cool, dry cupboard.
Avoid closing your Ótima™ container if possible, to prevent possible odours.
Ótima™ containers are freezer friendly.
To extend the lifespan of your Ótima™ containers, ensure the freezer is not below 25˚C.
