Knives should be washed by hand unless their packaging specifically states that they are dishwasher safe. Dishwashers do a great job of cleaning things by washing with very hot water, but this hot water and the long duration of the cycle can affect the strength of the blade. The heat is also not good for the handles of knives so opt to wash them by hand to preserve their lifespans. Washing knives by hand should be done with hot soapy water then they should be rinsed well and dried immediately.Designated knives
For roasts, the curved bladed knife that is roughly eight to nine inches long is the one youll want to have on hand.
Knives should be handled with care and always stored in a knife block, on a magnetic knife strip or in the protective sleeves they came in. These measures will stop the knives from rubbing against one another damaging the blade in the process.Sharpen up
