If you have good quality set of knives, it’s important to know how to protect them and maintain its top quality.
Most of the top quality knives can be use for many years to come if you know how to maintain them.
How to wash your kitchen knives?
To keep its top quality, once you have used it, wash it clean and wipe it dry and put it away in the storage block or box.
It’s not advisable to soak your best knife. Soaking may cause damage or discoloration to your knife, especially the knife’s wooden handles. Leaving your knife in the water for extended times instead of drying them straight away may lead to discoloration. Besides that, it’s also dangerous to have a sharp knife leaving in the water as you might forget about it too.
It is not that difficult to clean cutlery and knives by hand in a sink of hot soapy water but it does require a bit of thought and effort.
Dishwasher & Storage?
Another important tip to keep your knife in top quality is never put stainless steel kitchen knives in a dishwasher with silver or silver-plated items. Even though most of the best knives is dishwasher safe, but I strongly advise you to wash your best knives by hand. And try to keep them store them in the knife block, box or tray. This will help to protect the knives from dulling that may occur if they are banded around with other things that thrown together loosely in a drawer.
