Our X products are made of food-grade nylon and food-grade silicone rubber. They are BPA-free. They will stand up to boiling water without any negative effects (check out some tips on camp cuisine here). They can be washed in a dishwasher and used in a microwave without damage. If the silicone rubber should sustain a small cut, it can be repaired with McNett SilNett or Sea to Summit’s UltraSeam Sil (clean the cut with isopropyl alcohol, drop a blob of the silicone repair compound over the damaged area, allow to dry).
Delta products are made of Nylon 66, which is strong, light and BPA-free. They will stand up to boiling water without any negative effects. They can be washed in a dishwasher, but should not be used in a microwave.
Alpha Set / AlphaLight Cutlery
Alpha cutlery is made of high-grade aircraft aluminum alloy, which is hard-anodized. It is strong, light and durable. Alpha cutlery should not be used in a dishwasher – the caustic chemicals in dishwasher detergent will damage the anodized finish irreparably. As with all metal cutlery, it is not recommended to use Alpha utensils with non-stick finishes.
Titanium cutlery can be washed in a dishwasher without any negative effects. As with all metal cutlery, it is not recommended to use Titanium utensils with non-stick finishes.
