Explore our replies to some of the most frequently asked questions you might have in relation to Endeavour kitchen brand. Wood Fiber Cutting Boards:
Here you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions about our unique series of cutting boards.
Can my wood fiber cutting boards withstand heat?
Yes, the material is robust and can withstand temperatures up to 170 degrees Celsius. Therefore, they can be used to place hot items on the table without damaging it.
Can the wood fiber cutting boards go in the dishwasher?
Yes, all Endeavour wood fiber cutting boards are designed to be dishwasher safe, making them easy to clean and maintain good hygiene.
How do I best take care of my wood fiber cutting boards?
Wood fiber cutting boards are utensils and will naturally develop cutting marks and lose some shine over time, especially after repeated trips in the dishwasher. To refresh them, we recommend using our Board Beeswax. Rub the wax into the board, wipe off, and you will experience the feeling of a new board again. If there are deep marks, they can be gently sanded with fine sandpaper to restore their appearance. Bamboo Knife Holder:
Here is general information about our bamboo knife holder series.
How do I maintain my knife holder?
The knife holder can easily be kept clean and hygienic by removing the insert and rinsing it with water and soap. Let it air dry and then it is ready for use again. We do not recommend putting it in the dishwasher. Also, check if any of the rods are bent or broken. Remove these, as they can create a domino effect and bend more. This does not affect functionality, even if you remove many.
I'm having trouble inserting knives into my knife holder?
Sometimes, you may have bent or broken rods in the insert – especially if you put blunt knives in the holder. Remove the insert if you start feeling resistance and pull out the bent rods – make it a habit to look for them when you already have the insert out for cleaning. We recommend cleaning the insert once a month.
If you're having trouble getting the insert out, you can turn the bottom upside down and gently tap the top rim against a hard surface, all the way around - it will then work its way out.
Can I replace the insert in my knife holder?
Yes, you can purchase the insert separately if you wish to replace it and start with a fresh insert.Endeavour Knives:
We have two series of knives in Endeavour. Both series are made of the best materials to ensure you the greatest experience in the kitchen. Here we have collected some answers to the most frequently asked questions.
How do I maintain my knives sharpness?
We recommend using a ceramic honing rod to maintain the sharpness of your Endeavour knives as a traditional steel honing rod can do more harm than good to the hard damascus steel.
Please note that a honing rod maintains and does not sharpen your knife and that it can be professionally sharpened when needed. If you sharpen yourself, we recommend an angle of approximately 15 degrees on each side.
You can find more information about sharpening and maintaining knives in our guide on honing rods here: https://endeavour.dk/en/blogs/ceramic-honing-rod/get-sharper-knives-how-a-ceramic-honing-rod-works
Can I clean my Damascus knives in the dishwasher?
No, we do not recommend cleaning Endeavour knives in the dishwasher, as this can damage the fine Japanese VG10 steel and dry out the wooden handle. Kitchen knives require care and should be hand washed to maintain their sharpness and luster.
How should I best store my Endeavour knives?
We recommend storing the knives in our flexible bamboo knife holder or hanging them on our knife magnet to avoid damage to the edge of the knives.
How do I maintain the FSC-packaged wood handle on my Discovery Pro knives?
The handle is made of the best FSC-labeled pakka wood. The material is naturally incredibly durable. However, over time, the glow and appearance may fade slightly. But this can easily be fixed by using our Board Beeswax. Wash the handle in warm soapy water and dry it well. Then rub beeswax over the entire handle and let it sit for a while. Wipe off, and the handle will be back with full glow and appearance. PLA Citrus Presses:
