We get asked this question a lot as their cookware range has a non stick coating on them leading to our customers thinking the Scanpan knife range also sports this coating even though they don't. These knives are made from a high quality German stainless steel which can be sharpened just like any other premium knife range that we sell.

Maintaining your knives involves several essential practices to ensure they stay sharp, durable, and in top condition:

Cleaning: Always wash your knives by hand with warm water and mild detergent immediately after use. It's important to avoid using the dishwasher, as the harsh environment can damage both the blade and the handle over time. After washing, dry the knives completely with a soft cloth to prevent any rust formation.

Honing: Regular honing is key to keeping your knives sharp and maintaining their edge. Use a honing steel before or after each use to realign the blade's edge. Hold the steel vertically and gently slide the knife down and across the steel at a 20-degree angle.

Sharpening: In addition to regular honing, your knives will need periodic sharpening, typically once or twice a year depending on how frequently you use them. You can sharpen your knives using a whetstone, a handheld sharpener, or opt for professional sharpening services.

Storage: Proper storage is crucial for the longevity of your knives. Store your knives in a knife block, on a magnetic strip, or within protective sheaths. This not only prevents the blades from dulling but also helps avoid accidents. Storing knives in a drawer is not recommended, as they can easily get damaged.

Cutting Surface: To maintain the sharpness of your knife edges, always use wooden or plastic cutting boards. Cutting on hard surfaces like glass, metal, or stone can quickly dull your knives.

Avoid Misuse: Remember that knives are specifically designed for cutting food. Avoid using them for any non-food related tasks, as this can damage the blade and potentially void the warranty.

Handle with Care: Always be mindful of the knife's balance and handle it with care. Avoid dropping or carelessly tossing your knives, as this can lead to damage to both the blade and the handle.

Scanpan knives are made from high-quality German stainless steel, which is known for its corrosion resistance, durability, and its ability to maintain a sharp edge.
