Knives are your most important tools in the kitchen and are definitely neglected. Here are some great tips on taking proper care of your knives;
- Hand wash your knives- never put them in the dishwasher. The dishwasher is too harsh and will destroy your knives- always wash,hand dry them, and place them away.
- Avoid using your knife to scrape up ingredients after you finished chopping- I know, I do this all the time and it scratches and dulls the blade. Either turn the knife around and use the dull edge or use a scraper.
- Sharpen regularly- It is always recommended to have your knives sharpened professionally at a specialty store, but in between you can sharpen them at home- here is a quick, easy video on how to sharpen your knives at home.
