      A:

      Yes, these knives can be used in the dishwasher. However, per our use and care instructions, it is recommended that they instead be hand washed with a soapy cloth/sponge and dried immediately. We recommend this because the heat and detergent from a dishwasher can have a corrosive effect on the blades.

Chicago Cutlery® Use & Care


Knife Care

For best results, hand-wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately. Soaking wood-handled knives in water can remove the natural oils from the handles. Dishwashing may cause nicks on the blade edges. Additionally, the heat and detergent may have a corrosive effect on the knives.

Sharpening

Sharpeners are not for use on scalloped or serrated edges. For optimum performance, knives should be sharpened after every couple of uses. Use a scouring powder to clean and remove metal particles from your sharpening steel. After cleaning the steel, rinse with water, dry it thoroughly and store in a dry place.

Sharpening Steel

  • Hold sharpening steel point down on flat stable surface such as a table or cutting board.
  • Angle knife blade approximately 15 degrees from the sharpening steel. Imagine the knife blade is at approximately 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock.
  • Pull the knife down and across the sharpening steel in a slight arc, pulling the knife handle toward you.
  • Repeat on the other side of the steel.
  • Repeat these steps 3-5 times, alternating the right and left side of the cutting edge.
  • MagnaSharp® in Block sharpener
  • Insert your fine edged knife into the sharpening slot.
  • While applying slight downward pressure on the knife edge, pull the knife out of the slot.
  • Repeat this 3-4 times, and your knife edge will be realigned and sharpened.

MagnaSharp® Mouse Sharpener

It is small enough to store in a drawer or, better yet, the back side is a magnet so you can place it on the refrigerator, your stove, or anywhere close to your cutlery.

  • Open the sharpening area.
  • Insert your fine edged knife into the sharpening slot.
  • While applying slight downward pressure on the knife edge, pull the knife through.
  • Repeat this 3-4 times, and your knife edge will be realigned and sharpened.

Storing

Sharp knives should never be stored loose in a drawer because contact with hard objects can dull the blade and reaching into a knife drawer can be very dangerous. Many Chicago Cutlery® sets are sold with a hardwood block for safe, convenient storage. MagnaStrip™ storage is another way for convenient and safe storage, saving counter space with a magnetic strip.

Safety

  • Use the correct size and type of knife for the job.
  • Cut away from the body when possible.
  • Use knives with a wooden or polyethylene cutting board.
  • Do not use a knife to stab, pull or lift materials.
  • After handling a knife, lay it down in a cleared area with the blade away from the body and a safe distance from the edge of the cutting area.
  • Do not reach blindly for a knife; reach deliberately for the handle.
  • Never try to catch a falling knife.
