Caring for Your Springerle Molds and Accessories

Posted by Heather Wright on

Product Care Instructions

To ensure years of enjoyment from your Springerle Emporium products, please care for them as you would all of your fine kitchen accessories and equipment.

Wood (Art Und Delikat and Maple Carved) Springerle Molds

  1. Like any kitchen tool, it's a good itea to wash your mold before using it for the very first time. Simply lightly clean it with a toothbrush and water. This will remove any remaining sawdust from the carving process. Allow the mold to fully dry before using it.
  2. For normal cleaning after using it with dough: First, remove any loose or dry dough, flour, etc. with a dry soft toothbrush.
  3. Remove remaining flour/dough with a soft toothbrush by gently brushing the mold grooves in a circular motion. A bit of gentle hand dish soap and water works well.
  4. Never leave wood springerle molds to soak or put them in the dishwasher.
  5. Dry face down on a clean kitchen towel. Dry completely before storing.
  6. If you store your molds for a long time (for example, if you only use them once a year), you can optionally gently rub a drop or two of cutting board oil into them before putting them away for extended storage. We like Howard's Cutting Board Oil for this purpose. Never use vegetable or food oils as they will eventually turn rancid. 

Resin (Anis-Paradies) Springerle Molds

  1. Like any kitchen tool, it's a good itea to wash your mold before using the mold for the very first time. Simply lightly clean it with a toothbrush and water. This will remove any remaining resin dust from the finishing process. Allow the mold to fully dry before using it.
  2. For normal cleaning after use with dough: First, remove any loose or dry dough, flour, etc. with a dry soft toothbrush.
  3. Wash by hand in warm water with hand dish soap. Use a toothbrush to gently remove stubborn dough from the grooves.
  4. Never put springerle molds in the dishwasher.
  5. Dry face down on a clean kitchen towel. Dry completely before storing.

 Dough Thickness Guides

  1. Brush off flour with a clean towel. Gently scrape off any dough with a bench knife or the back of a butter knife.
  2. If needed, wipe with a wet towel. Wipe off any excess water.
  3. Never leave wood guides to soak or put them in the dishwasher.
  4. Dry dough guides completely before storing. Store them flat.

 Cookie Cutters

  1. Wash by hand in warm soapy water.
  2. Never put cookie cutters in the dishwasher.
  3. Dry by hand completely before storing.
