Caring for and Sharpening Cutlery

Posted by Chef on 5/1/2012 to Cooking Tips
Cutlery should be used for food preparation only. Cutting other materials, such as paper and cardboard, will cause the blade to dull faster.


Cutlery should be washed in hot soapy water and dried immediately. Letting knives soak in water or putting them in the dishwasher could be harmful as water and high temperatures may cause a change in the temper of the steel blade or loosen the handle. Cutlery should also be stored in their own rack or in such a manner that their blade does not rub against other items and become dull faster.
