The equipment you use in your kitchen is crucial to the process of cooking. Particularly your knives, they get a lot of wear. Even regular use will eventually dull your blades due to normal wear and tear. But a few easy tricks can help them stay sharper for longer. Everyone requires some time to study the subject and practice keeping a knife sharp. The fact that it won't take much time is a benefit. Here are a few simple methods for maintaining your modern knife set's sharpness and readiness.

1. SHARPENING STEEL

    It's possible that the modern knife set you purchased included a sharpening tool. There are various fashions. It might be a long, metal stick-like tool that helps you sharpen your knife's metal blade without taking out a lot of metal.

    How is the sharpener used? The knife's heel and tip should be moved across the top of the rod. Repeat on the opposite side of the knife blade, at the bottom of the rod (repeat 6-8 times). You can complete this activity more quickly the more you practice.

    2. AN APPROPRIATE CUTTING BOARD

      Your knife's capacity to maintain its edge can be significantly improved by the cutting boards you use. The finest option for maintaining the sharpness of your knives is a hardwood cutting board. Because the wood is so soft, your cutting edge suffers less damage. A cutting board should be made of premiere wood options like Canadian maple wood or American cherry wood. 

      Although the design of a modern knife set is sturdy, the knife can slide between both vertical wooden fibers. Cutlery won't experience excessive wear & tear thanks to the sturdy wood. The wooden cutting board is created without the use of pesticides from organic materials. It keeps your knives sharp and is stain and bacterial growth resistant.

      3. HANDWASH YOUR KNIFE

        Do you realize how frequently knives are placed in the dishwasher? This may appear like a terrific strategy to thoroughly clean blades. However, the constant exposure to heat and water can quickly dull your blades. Take a moment to wash your knife by hand carefully if you would like to keep it sharp & in good shape. Hand washing your modern knife set should keep them more sharply focused.

        4. PROPERLY STORE YOUR KNIFE

          Another reason knives are dull is improper storage. Many homeowners simply chuck their top-notch knives in among a variety of other kitchen tools. You should have a separate storage area just for your knives. You can keep your knives in their drawer. You can store them in knife blocks or wooden blocks as well. They can be helpful for both sharpening steel and an entire set of knives.

          5. PROPER USE OF A KNIFE

            Avoid using a modern knife set as a pry bar, screwdriver, hammer, or any other tool to maintain it sharp. Knives should only be used for cutting and nothing else. Use it only for what it was intended.

            6. NEVER SLICE BREAD WITH IT

              The saw-like edge of a serrated blade is intended to cut through bread's crispy crust without crushing the soft interior. While the chef's knife may slide around (putting your fingers in danger), the firm crust will dull your sharp knife.

              7. FORGET SLIDING FROSTED FOODS

                Keeping your blades sharp by avoiding cutting frozen items is another helpful piece of advice. Instead, be patient and give it some time to thaw. Otherwise, when it hard impacts them, a frozen block of food, that incredibly expensive and superb steel blade might chip.

                8. A MARBLE OR GLASS CUTTING BOARD IS NOT FOR USE

                  These cutting boards are simple to clean. The fact that these boards cause your knife to dull out faster is the primary factor not in using them. Avoid using cutting boards made of glass or marble, and avoid cutting directly on ceramic vessels.  Knives just cannot cut through these cutting surfaces. Even the greatest grade kitchen knives will become dull from repeated chopping & slicing on these boards.

                  HOW TO MAINTAIN KITCHEN KNIFE SHARPNESS?

                  Knives play a crucial role in your daily kitchen cooking activity. If you take good care of the knives, store them appropriately, & use them on suitable surfaces, then your equipment will last longer.

                  Remember to rapidly rinse your knife with water after sharpening it, then quickly pat it dry with a soft cloth. This will assist in getting rid of any extra metal shavings.

                  CONCLUSION:

                  When you take a moment to maintain your knives, you are less prone to have issues. Kitchen preparation requires the use of knives extensively. To get effective results, just like with any other equipment you use around the house, you need to make sure it is in good shape.
