A common mistake that many make in the kitchen is failing to invest in high-quality lives and utensils. The thought process is that high-quality goods cost too much money and so many opt for a cheaper version. The big issue with this however is that it is a false economy as high-quality goods last longer, meaning a single investment works out cheaper over time than buying 2 or 3 times at a lower cost. Not only do higher quality products last longer, but they are also better at what they do. The key to longevity with higher-priced items is looking after them well, and here is how to do so.

Knife Usage

When it comes to knives it is essential that you follow some very basic rules. the first is to understand which knife is for which type of cutting, this will help both in terms of the results that you want and in terms of looking after the knife over the long term. Regularly sharpening your knives will help maintain performance, and after using you should always was right away. The blade can be prone to rust if you fail to clean them after use. If you do not have the time to sharpen them yourself, you can conveniently send it by mail to a professional sharpening company such as KnifeCare 

Washing by Hand

When you are cleaning kitchen utensils it is essential that you do so by hand. Although most are dishwasher safe, the machine actually gives the utensils and tools a bit of a rough ride, and over time this could actually cause damage. Your hands are much softer and precise when washing so this is going to be a much better way of cleaning them, which will also ensure that they stay in better shape for longer.

Hanging Utensils

If you have high-quality kitchen tools such as knives and metal utensils then you have to avoid them from coming into contact with each other as this could potentially cause damage. This is why having a utensil drawer really isn’t a good idea. The best option is to hang the utensils which will massively reduce the possibility of them hitting each other. This also makes the utensils more accessible, there is nothing worse than digging through a drawer for the utensil that you need to use.

Reading Manuals

Reading the manual from the manufacturer will offer you some great insight into how to properly care for your equipment. For example, there may be some cleaning products that you can’t use on a particular utensil because of the way that it has been made or because of the materials that have been used in the process. It is prudent to check this out when you buy a new utensil or kitten tool. If you are not able to find the manual then you will easily be able to locate it by looking online, as the large majority of manuals these days are uploaded to the web.

Look after the tools and utensils in your kitchen, and they will repay the favor with their longevity.
