Is The Oyster Bed dishwasher safe?

We don’t recommend washing The Oyster Bed in an automatic dishwasher.  We have used dishwashers successfully (when using very environmentally friendly detergents) but have also seen the metal lose its luster (when using “hardcore” industrial strength detergents).  For much more information, see the About page!

How exactly does The Oyster Bed help the environment?

The Oyster Bed helps the environment in a few ways:

1.  When people use The Oyster Bed to cook and eat PRE-SHUCKED oysters, they give those shells an opportunity to be recycled since most shucking houses send their shells back to coastal estuaries.  When shells are recycled by oyster fishermen who create new reefs with those shells, it helps the entire ecosystem and helps protect against erosion!

2.  The Oyster Bed LLC routinely donates products to fundraising events for environmentally conscious non profit organizations. 

3.  The Oyster Bed LLC consistently makes a consistent effort to teach food lovers about the value of the oyster and the value of a healthy ecosystem.
