Some important tips on how to care for your kitchen knives, to guarantee long service life and pleasure in cooking:
Blades are ground thinner towards the cutting edge and should be used only for cutting and not for heavy chopping. Bones or similar material should be cut only with a cleaver. Your working base should be a cutting board made of wood or plastic. Hard bases, i.e. glass, marble or granite, will very quickly lead to blunt knives.
Although DICK knives can certainly be washed in the dishwasher, this form of washing is much more aggressive than cleaning by hand. The fine cutting edge can be slightly bent in the dishwasher and thus loses its ideal cutting features. Highly concentrated washing agents and long periods in hot steam can lead to stains on the blade. We therefore recommend that our knives are washed by hand - under flowing water with a gentle cloth and a mild detergent. Dry the knives carefully with a cloth after washing to prevent staining on the blade.
