To begin with, they are very easy to clean after a party considering that they are disposable. Once all your guests have left, you only need to collect all the tableware they have used and discard it, instantly making the space tidy once more. In addition, if all your party tableware is disposable, a simple swipe of your hand or your cleaning tool directing these items into a plastic bin could cut your clean-up time, allowing you to attend to other important things around the house.

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.

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.

If you buy a knife set, storage blocks are often included. You can also buy stand alone knife blocks in various sizes. Knife blocks provide safety and convenience, but they take up counter space and can be difficult to clean when necessary. It is important to make sure your knives are clean and dry before you store them in a block. Moisture, dirt and food particles can get stuck in the slots and cleaning the slots is not usually easy though a can of compressed air can help.

Storing your knives loosely in one of your kitchen drawers is a bad idea, yet many people do exactly that. Doing so poses a danger to anyone who opens the drawer. Your knives can also be damaged while sliding around among the other cutlery and kitchen tools sharing the drawer.

For most people, this is between $100 to $300. In this price range, there are quite a few great sets made by a number of different manufacturers. One of the best in this price range is an Anolon knife set. Anonlon got their start in the kitchen cookware arena, and recently has expanded into cutlery. They have developed a reputation for making top-notch cookware, and it looks as if their knives are going to follow suit.

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.

To sharpen your knives, contact your retailer where you purchased them from and they will give you the details of the manufacturer or distributor and they can be professionally sharpened. Do not attempt to sharpen your ceramic knives at home with a steel, manual or electric knife sharpener, this will damage the blade and invalidate any warranty on your ceramic knives.
