What is it about the dishwasher that harms knives?
The only reasons I've found are:
- You could get cut... I personally have a greater change of getting cut by trying to wash them by hand.
- The blades can damage the plastic-coated metal shelves... so I put them in the silverware-holder instead of on the rack (it's 100% plastic, no metal).
- The blade could get nicked by being knocked into other silverware... so put the blade by itself in a section of the silverware-holder in the DW.
