I don't put my good knives or my stainless in the dishwasher. My Oneida place knives pitted and rusted by washing them in the dishwasher. I usually run my dishwasher every other day.
When Oneida sent me my replacement sets, they suggested handwashing which I will happily oblige...I am already washing pots and pans, anyway.
I put my sharp knives in the dish water one at a time. I don't let them lay on the bottom of the sink and I don't fish around for them. They never leave my hands I dip and wash and rinse and lay aside. I then towel dry and put them away.
So glad that you have your wonderful new set of knives! I felt the same way when I got my Henkels!
