If you're a Cutco owner, you've probably wondered whether or not you can dishwash your knives.
Can they withstand the heat and water? Will they get ruined in the dishwasher?
In this blog post, we'll answer all of those questions and more.
We'll also teach you how to wash your knives the right way so that they stay sharp and in great condition for years to come!
Yes, you can wash your Cutco knives in a dishwasher
Dishwashing machines can damage your Cutco knives in two ways – the heat of the cycle can cause the blade to warp, and the detergent can dull the blade over time.
If you must wash your knives in the dishwasher, we recommend using the lowest heat setting and a gentle detergent.
You should also avoid leaving your knives in the dishwasher for extended periods of time, as this can cause them to rust.
You can still wash your Cutco knives in a dishwasher but there are a few things you should keep in mind.
Use the lowest heat setting possible to avoid damaging the knives.
The reason for this is that the high heat can cause the knives to warp.
Do not place your knives in the dishwasher with other items, as they could get damaged.
For example, if you're washing your knives with forks and spoons, make sure to place them in the dishwasher tines down so that they don't get scratched.
Be sure to dry your knives immediately after washing them to prevent rusting.
Although you can wash your Cutco knives in a dishwasher, we recommend hand-washing them whenever possible.
How to wash your Cutco knives the right way
If you're handwashing your Cutco knives, the best way to do it is to use warm water and mild dish soap.
Avoid using hot water, as this can damage the blade.
Gently scrub the blade with a soft sponge or cloth, being careful not to press too hard – you don't want to risk dulling the blade.
Rinse the knife off with warm water and dry it thoroughly with a clean towel.
This way, you can be sure that your Cutco knives are getting clean without damaging them.

With proper care, you can be sure that your Cutco knives will stay sharp and in good condition for years to come.
How to sharpen your Cutco knives if they lose their edge
If your Cutco knives start to lose their edge, don't worry – they can be easily sharpened.
All you need is a sharpening stone and some water.
First, wet the stone with water and then hold the knife at a 20-degree angle to the stone.
Use long, even strokes to sharpen the blade, moving from the base of the blade to the tip.
Finish by honing the blade with steel.
You can also use a honing rod to sharpen your Cutco knives.
First, find the angle you need to hold the knife at – usually around 20 degrees.
Then, hold the honing rod against the blade and move it from the base of the blade to the tip.
Finish by running the knife along a sharpening stone to remove any burrs.
