Rada Cutlery Care Instructions

Care Instructions – Hand Wash vs. Dishwasher

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because: Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge. Recent government-mandated, changes to phosphate-free dish washing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals – including stainless steel blades and in particular, our brushed aluminum handles. Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying which is incompatible with fine cutlery. For these reasons our silver brushed aluminum handle cutlery should only be hand washed and dried immediately. For those who prefer to use a dishwasher, our black stainless steel resin handle cutlery may be placed in a dishwasher. Proper washing and care will maximize the beauty and performance of your cutlery.

If your aluminum handles are turning dark from placing them in the dishwasher, the best way to restore their bright shine is by using Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser & Polish. Sprinkle the product on a wet cloth or scrubbing pad and rub until the discoloration disappears and then rinse immediately. You can find Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser & Polish at Best Knife USA by clicking the following link.

Keeping your knife blades sharp for optimum use should be affordable, quick, safe, and simple. The Rada Quick Edge Knife Sharpener is all of those things and more. It is an indispensable tool that will keep your kitchen knives at their best. You don’t need long to learn how to use a knife sharpener with Rada’s innovative device. Simply take the knife you want sharpened and pull the blade between the wheels four to six times. Wipe off the blade to remove any metal shavings, and you’re done! The knife will now be as sharp as when it left the factory. There is no need to spend a large sum on a professional knife sharpener when the Rada Quick Edge Knife Sharpener has been favorably compared to the kinds of tools one would see in restaurant kitchens (such as a sharpening stone or electric sharpener).
