Question Help: Best Dishwasher-Safe Chef Knife That Won't Rust (was Knife thread for Zhizara)

Please recommend a top quality Chef Knife,
or Knife Set for that matter, that won't get
rust spots if you wash it in the dishwasher.
Please help...i'm tired of washing knives!

Apologies if this has already been asked but
I confess that I'm not an avid knife thread
reader either.

Got all the knives I need. Got no dishwasher. Thread is like listening to guys talk about sports or cars. They are welcome to their fun, but I'll pass.

Isn't Stainless Steel supposed to be rust free? I don't think you need to spend a fortune either. Wouldn't it make sense to pay a reasonable price and just buy a new one when you need it?

I've got a Food Network Chef knife,
a Hoffritz Signature Series chef knife,
a OXO Stainless Chef knife,
and a Wolfgang Puck Bread knife...

ALL of which get rust spots
if put in the dishwasher

I'm willing to pay whatever it takes.
But is there one even?

How about a ceramic knife? I do not know a thing about them, but would think they would not rust.

Why not try the knives thread. They know ALL about them. Not me.

My DH puts the Henckels in the dishwasher all the time. They never get rust spots, but do sometimes get water spots

He makes sure that they are put in such that they don't get knocked against anything else.

I prefer washing them by hand.

Because...I'm not seeking a rust-free knife?

I wash my Henckels by hand too, TaxLady. No rust spots on them either.

IMO, there are no top quality chef's knives that are suitable for dishwasher use. Banging knives around with water jets is not going to keep the knives sharp. I don't have the worlds best knives, nor the world worst, but all are sharp enough that I would not want to grab them from the DW. It is a simple matter to wipe the knife down after using and store it where it belongs.

I agree. I used to have arguments with my DH about whether or not they could go in the dishwasher. I didn't know why, but I was sure it wasn't a good idea to put them in the dishwasher. I finally heard a TV chef explain about the knives getting banged around and told my DH. That's when he started laying them down in the top rack, so they don't get banged around.

Well, they are his knives. He bought them before we got together.
