The title says it all. I was just given a Calphalon set of knives for Xmas. I have washed knives in the dishwasher before and the giver asked and was assured by the salesman (at Bed, Bath and Beyond) that they were dishwasher safe. I just pulled out my 6" utility knife from the upper rack and it has quite a few rust spots on it! I am not happy. I called Calphalon and was told that their knives are not dishwasher safe after all.
So, is there anyone out there who makes good knives that you can put in the dishwasher? I don't see why that is such a big deal. So far I have not heard of them. I hate being a slave to my tools and, yes, I do not want to have to spend "a few extra seconds" merrily hand washing and lovingly drying some inanimate object. I'd rather be swilling Veuve Clicquot or something less drudgy.
