How to care and store
Kitchen cutlery steel contains a small percentage of carbon
to allow sharpening and maintaining cutting power, so the blade can stain if
not properly cared for. Thus, if the blade comes into contact with acidic foods
such as lemon, tomato, mustard etc. you should wash the knife immediately.
Only knives with plastic handle can be machine washed.
However, to prolong the beauty of your knife and maintain the edge in good
condition, you should wash it by hand. If you choose to machine wash, we
recommend to dry the piece after the end of the program to avoid staining
caused by limescale and detergents.
How to use your
Knives are precious utensils in your kitchen. To get the most
out of these, you just need to consider a few small rules.
Always keep the knife sharp. A sharp knife works better
and is safer because it needs less pressure to cut. If too much pressure is used,
there is a possibility of knife slipping, causing you harm. Also, the fatigue
will be less.
How to Keep Your
As a knife is used, its edge loses the thread and
consequently requires more effort to cut. What happens is that the tiny teeth
that constitute the blade (invisible to the naked eye) are folded and it is
necessary to restore them and realign them to get the maximum cutting power
With the exception of serrated knives, all knives can
retrieve the original edge. Depending on the state of it, you may use a
household sharpener, a water rock or a professional sharpener.
Hold the sharpener with one hand and with the other place
the lower part of the blade against the top of the blade. Maintain a 20º slope from
the blade back to the sharpener.
Keeping the incline, slide the blade to the nozzle without
making too much pressure.
Repeat the process 3 to 4 times on each side.
After a long period of use, the cutting edge can suffer a
greater wear and, in this case, it will be necessary to rework it through a
professional process such as a sharpening machine or a grinder. However, never
use a method that may cause overheating on the blade as it may lead to blade
