Many people see washing up as a tiresome chore. Fortunately, dishwashers are now a standard feature of almost every kitchen. They make the perfect household aid and make your day-to-day tasks that bit easier. Thanks to their low water and energy consumption, most dishwashers are actually even more economical and environmentally friendly than washing up by hand. But not everything can or should be cleaned in a dishwasher.
You should never wash sharp kitchen knives in a dishwasher. Both wooden handles and sharp blades can be damaged by high temperatures and the high amounts of cleaning detergent. It’s better to clean knives with washing-up liquid and warm water. Simply wipe the knife with a dishcloth and rinse it briefly with clean water.
