A classic amongst the range of knives that belong in every kitchen: as well as bread, this knife is suitable for use on hard-skinned vegetables and fruit, as well as for roasts, especially those with crackling. The concave (inwardly curved), serrated edge of the knife works like the teeth of a saw, but is much finer, so no pressure is required to cut any sort of bread and even a hard crust will allow a clean cut.
Milly's have been selling the Wusthof range of Classic knives for years - they are regarded by many as the go-to range of German knives for professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts.
Professional quality, precision-forged knives - manufactured using the latest robot technologies. Wusthof Classic knives are fitted with the traditional riveted handle. Unlike other cheaper ranges, the blades in this Classic range are precision-forged from one solid piece of steel. The edges are skillfully honed by hand and are incredibly sharp and easily maintained.
Whether you're just starting out or are updating your knives, you would do well to consider Wusthof Classic.
Proper care for long-lasting cooking enjoyment
If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.
Technically, WÜSTHOF knives are suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher (except knives with wooden handles), but there are a number of reasons why precious knives should not be cleaned in a dishwasher:
Many dishwashers have a cutlery basket into which knives, cutlery, and other utensils are placed. With both the loading and unloading of this basket, as well as the force of the water pressure, there is the danger that the blades will hit against one another or against other objects in the dishwasher and become damaged.
With dishwashers that have a cutlery drawer, the loading and unloading process may damage not only the knife blades, but also the covering of the cutlery drawer so that the coating can no longer provide the protection for which it was designed, causing rust to set in. This can lead to foreign rust deposits on the blade.
If the dishwasher is not used for a number of days, and the knives are not cleaned directly after use, the effect of caustic food particles such as pickles, spicy sauces, citrus fruits, and vegetables that remain on the blade can lead to unsightly spots and corrosion.
It is very important to use the correct amount of dishwasher detergent, otherwise foreign rust particles will adhere to the blade. In most cases these spots can be easily removed with a steel cleaner, which is available at most hardware stores.
