How do I care for my knife?

Our new knives should and can last forever if you take care of them.  Good knives should never be put in the dishwasher. Always hand wash and dry right away.  Never leave them sitting in water for extended periods. They can rust and the pakkawood can swell, causing them to be defective.  Good knives are not made from pure stainless steel, instead they are made from a mixture of high carbon steel and stainless steel. The high carbon allows the knife to be sharpened and the stainless keeps it from staining.  However, the detergents and heat in a regular dishwasher are too much for the mixture and all good knives will rust in the dishwasher.


Always use the honing steel to realign the edge before use.  This should be done before every use. The honing steel straightens the edge but it does not sharpen.  The diamond steel should be used approximately once a month or when your knives don’t feel sharp after using the honing steel.  The diamond steel has powdered diamond dust to remove a small amount of metal to get your edge back. If the diamond steel and honing steel doesn’t work it is time to use a V sharpener.  The V sharpener will strip off the old edge and put on a new one. Try not to use it too often though, as it will wear your blade away after time. For a complete tutorial on how to use the sharpeners and all other knife skills, please take our knife skills video class by clicking here .  


Gunter Wilhelm warranties your knife for life.  It is guaranteed against any defects, rust, defects, etc.  Please refer to our Warranty Page

How do I clean my cookware?

To maintain your mirror non-stick finish, we recommend the use of non-metal, silicon kitchen tools only. Plastics may melt on the surface and may be difficult to remove.

When using your cookware for the first time it is recommended to clean it using a substance such as dawn or some non-abrasive dishwashing detergent.

Only use Barkeepers Friend stainless steel polish for cleaning. It is non-abrasive and will keep your mirror finish.

Never use anything abrasive or rough such as a brillo pad or the rough side of a sponge. Use only soft cellulose sponges.

The best way to clean is to heat the pan and use a silicon spatula to loosen up the bottom and then rinse off.

While this dishwasher safe, it is so easy to clean, hand washing is recommended.

This cookware is oven safe until 500 degree F.

It is highly recommended to use a silicon trivet on top of the induction unit if cooking on the induction. The trivet will allow the magnetism to pass while keeping the induction unit cooler.
