How to Clean your Knives

How to Clean your Knives

 There's more to our knives than meets the eye. Not only are WÜSTHOF knives crafted in Solingen, Germany by some of the world's most experienced
knife artisans - they're also made using high-carbon stainless steel to ensure our premium blades hold up to the demands of daily use.

These simple care tips will ensure your WÜSTHOF knives remain in premium condition for years to come.



  • Hand-wash your knives right after use.

  • Use warm water and mild dish soap.

  • Carefully dry knives immediately with a soft cloth.

  • Return to safe storage using a knife block, in-drawer knife tray, knife roll, or blade guards.

Pro Tip: To help keep wooden handles looking their best, use a few drops of food-grade mineral oil directly on the knife handle and buff in with a soft cloth to polish and preserve its original luster.


  • To avoid any damage that could be caused by the high. temperature or knives rubbing during the washing cycle, do not place knives in the dishwasher.

  • Do not use abrasive sponges, cloths, or cleaners as they can scratch the blades of the knives.

  • Do not leave knives sitting or soaking in the sink. Food remains (spices, sauces, juices) can damage the blades and spots can form, causing corrosion.

Pro Tip: Keep crème and white-handled knives out of direct sunlight as the handles may be sensitive to UV rays.
