Aluminum Pans and Utensils


Wash thoroughly with hot soapy water. Scour any unpolished surfaces, such as the insides of pans, with soapy steel wool pads. However, do not scour plated aluminum surfaces because it might remove the finish. Sanitize in a bleach solution (1 tablespoon of unscented chlorine bleach per gallon of warm, not hot, water). Dishwasher-safe, but avoid harsh abrasives that can scratch the surface.

To remove dark stains from aluminum pans, fill the pan with water. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar or 2 teaspoons cream of tartar for each quart of water. Boil for 10 to 15 minutes, scour with steel wool, wash with soap, rinse, and dry.

Stainless Steel Knives - Wash knives in hot, soapy water. You can air-dry stainless steel knives.

Carbon Steel Knives - Wash knives in hot, soapy water. Carbon steel can rust so make sure to dry these knives immediately after washing and rinsing.


Storing knives in a block or sheath prevents accidents and helps maintain the blade's edge.

Using a cutting board when chopping prevents knife blades from dulling. Wooden cutting boards are preferable because plastic dulls blades more quickly.

Avoid placing them loose in the sink because other dishes in the sink can nick or dull the blades.

When using steel, hold the blade at an angle to the steel rod, and draw it down the length of the rod, sliding the knife so the blade passes over the rod from handle to tip. Repeat the process several times on both sides of the blade to sharpen it evenly.

As seen in Architectural Digest, Martha Stewart, and more. Most of the time we’re not cutting whole chickens or giant vegetables. We’re slicing an apple or nibbling on cheese or wedging a lemon. Except who wants to use a big old cutting board for a tiny thing like that? Same sustainable materials as its larger sibling, in a ~25% smaller package.

Plastic Utensils


Plastic tools, including spoons, spatulas, and microwave ovenware, are usually dishwasher-safe, but always check with the manufacturer first. Plastic will sometimes melt or warp on the lower dishwasher rack, so use the upper rack or hand-wash the plastic in soapy water instead. Avoid harsh abrasives, which can scratch plastic surfaces. Instead, use a nylon mesh scrubber to remove stubborn food.


Store plastic ware flat to avoid warping. Some foods, especially those with acidic juice such as tomato sauce and fruit juices, can stain plastic utensils and cookware.
