Will the dishwasher harm my knives?

Most kitchen knives will come to no serious harm from being washed in a dishwasher occasionally, however, do check the care & use instructions to be sure! Continued dishwashing may result in corrosion spots, damage to aluminium rivets and dulling of the cutting edge. Knives with wooden handles should never be put into the dishwasher. A combination of the water, heat and chemicals will ruin the finish of the handles and is highly likely to make them crack. Always refer to the manufacturers care instructions, as they may differ between brands and ranges.
