The 5 SimplyCook Laws of Knife Care

knife care

Your kitchen knives should be in the best possible condition but are you following these basic rules to keep them working at their best?

  1. Sharpen the blade regularly using a honing steel or stone, preferably at a 15-degree angle.
  2. Store them in a dry place where they will not come into contact with anything else.
  3. Always use a wooden or plastic chopping board. Hard surfaces such as marble or stone will quickly dull the blade.
  4. Never put them in the Dishwasher, hand wash and dry to prevent the heat and cleaning agents corroding the blade.
  5. Don’t let anyone use your knives!
