Using Your Cutlery

Proper Use

  • Select the proper knife for the task at hand.

  • Do not use knives as a screwdriver or can opener; it may damage the blade.

Cutting Surfaces

  • Do not use knives on hard surfaces that can dull or damage the cutting edge, such as glass, stone, ceramic, metal, or countertops. 

Caring For Cutlery

Washing Cutlery

  • Cutlery is dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended for lasting appearance and performance.
