Why can't I put knives in the dishwasher?
Over the years I've heard conflicting advice about caring for knives. Some people say you can put them through the dishwasher; others say they should only be hand-washed. I really dislike hand-washing and have always put mine through the diswasher - I lay them on the top rack, not in the cutlery basket. But I don't know if even the top rack will damage them. Can someone clear this up for me?
