Choose an Eco-Friendly Option - These days, consumers have a much greater assortment of clear tableware and cutlery to choose from, including a bevy of green alternatives. Many of these products are made using sustainable practices that are better for the planet and are comprised of more eco-friendly materials that can be recycled more easily than traditional plastic or even paper tableware. Renewable plastics, such as bioplastics, are made from renewable resources and are a cost-effective and ecologically sound alternative to petroleum-based tableware products. Other clear tableware products are made from PET, or post-consumer recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate. The "PET" or "PETE" acronym on plastic products (including tableware) simply indicates it was made from recycled materials.

High Carbon Stainless Steel knives are ones that have between 0.1% and 1.0% Carbon as well as the needed amount of Chromium. They can be hardened through heat treating and will hold a good edge, requiring knife sharpening much less often. Typically these steels will also contain a combination of Molybdenum and Vanadium. Molybdenum is an element that increases a knife's toughness while Vanadium helps maintain a sharp knife edge for a longer period of time. High Carbon Stainless kitchen knives tend to have thicker blades and be less flexible. These kitchen knives tend to be more expensive as high carbon stainless is more costly to use. Instead of buying an entire knife set buying kitchen knives individually can allow a person to acquire better knives over time. Some examples of High Carbon Stainless Steels are 440-C, ATS-34, VG10, and S30V.

The amount of Chromium is a debatable point some say 10.5% is enough for a steel to be stainless but when looking at most better quality stainless steels 12% - 14% seems to be the norm. That said Chromium is not the only element crucial to here. The quality of a kitchen knife varies considerably with the type of steel that the knife is made from. Many knives that are simply called stainless contain virtually no Carbon. Carbon is the element that allows steel to be hardened, hard steel will hold an edge better than soft steel thus providing better edge holding. Low Carbon Stainless typically has less than 0.03% Carbon, these tends to be used on inexpensive kitchen knives and other kitchen cutlery. They do not hold a very good edge and require frequent sharpening. Some telltale signs are highly shinny blades, often they are very thin and flexible knives, and commonly have serrated blades such as those seen on a bread knife.

Usually that is the limit of the information a person has about knife structure. However, knowing a little more helps to choose a good set of knives. The handle of a knife is used for holding and for controlling the knife. Some handles are made from wood. These require careful care and will become damaged, if left soaking in water. There are knife handles that are hand carved. Synthetic materials, even plastics that are heat resistant, are commonly used for handles. Metal handles are also common and provide long life for a handle.

This high-carbon steel is extremely tough and holds its edge well. They will need to be sharpened occasionally, but not as often as some similar knife sets, which need to be sharpened after every use. Anolon knives can be used multiple times before they need to be sharpened, and they sharpen easily. The blades are stain resistant and aren't prone to rust, but as with all knives, you have to make sure they stay clean and dry. They can be washed in the dishwasher, but it's recommended that you hand-wash and dry them so they will last longer.

If you must store knives in a drawer, the best option I have found for storing knives in a drawer is a knife safe. These blade protectors prevent damage to both the blade and hands when storing knives in a drawer. Some two piece models snap over the blade while some are hinged and more like cases. Most are made of strong plastic and are dishwasher safe.
