Genuine Toshiba owner's manual. Couldn't really ask for more. And written in understandable English in contrast to a few recent experiences I have had with manuals for other equipment other than Toshiba but made in China and written in "Chinglish"!

Loading Cutlery and Dishes
Sponges, household cloths and any object that can absorb water should not be washed in the dishwasher.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes are not suitable: â¢ Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother of pearl handles â¢ Plastic items that are not heat resistant â¢ Older cutlery with glued parts that is not temperature resistant â¢ Bonded cutlery items or dishes â¢ Pewter or copper items â¢ â¢ â¢ â¢ Lead crystal glass Steel items subject to rusting Wooden platters Items made from synthetic fibres are of limited suitability: â¢ Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically marked as being dishwashersafe by the manufacturer. â¢ Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed frequently. â¢ Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour during washing. Left-overs, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause discolouring and staining on silver. Therefore always clean left-overs from silver immediately, if it is not to be washed straight after use. â¢ Some types of glass can become dull after a large number of washes.
â¢ Before loading the dishes, you should: â Remove all scraps of food. â Soften remnants of burnt food in pans. â¢ When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note: â Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms. â Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base. â Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other 16
