Caring for your knives


Instead of keeping your knives in a drawer, where they can get damaged or cause an injury, use an easily accessible Masterchef knife block. Store the MasterChef cleaver separately in a block or sheath.


All these knives are dishwasher safe, but we recommend handwashing them with mild soap and warm water to prevent dulling the blades. Dry the knives with a soft cloth before storing. The scissors and Masterchef mini chopper aren’t dishwasher safe and need to be washed and dried by hand. To clean the knife block, wipe it with a damp cloth.


To prolong the life of each Masterchef knife, always defrost frozen foods before cutting. Slicing straight into frozen foods will quickly blunt the blade.
