X-Bowls/X-Plates/X-Mugs/X-Cups/X Seal & Go
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).
X-Pots are made of food-grade silicone and rubber and have hard-anodized aluminum bases. They are BPA-free. Anodized products will be damaged by the cleanser used in dishwashers, so X-Pots and X-Pans should not be washed in a dishwasher. Because of the aluminum base, they should also not be used in a microwave.
Delta products are made of glass-reinforced polypropylene, which is strong, light and BPA-free. They will stand up to boiling water without any negative effects and can be washed in a dishwasher. Delta products produced after the summer of 2017 can 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.
