How can you prevent your stainless steel cutlery from getting blue and yellow streaks in the dishwasher?
I live in an area where there are a lot of salts in the water. Perhaps that is one of the causes; I don't have the scientific knowledge to confirm that. My problem seemed worse if I used the Sani-Rinse or the Steam options so, obviously, the combo (salts, detergent, & extreme heat) had an adverse effect. I also sometimes wonder if there is enough water circulating to do a good job. What I do know is that when I switched from the powder detergent (Cascade) to the gel (Electrosol) & stuck with Hi-Temp Scrub, I got an all-around cleaner load, not just the cutlery. Perhaps different detergents contain different elements which react with the local water salts & really mess with our dishwashers. If that the case, I guess one has to experiment with various brands. Or possibly, the gel causes more turbidity & fools the sensor into thinking that the load is dirtier so it takes in more water; I don't know. All I know is that I saw quite an improvement when I switched. It's not perfect but much improved. A note of caution: My sister who lives 600 miles away, in the country & had no water softener was using a gel & gummed up her dishwasher to the point where it wouldn't run. She has since gotten a water softener, cleaned up the dishwasher (had to take the thing apart, soak & scrub...took days) & all is well now. She has a 22 yr old Maytag & I envy the sparkle of her glasses & flatware. Being the pessimist that I am, I do one load with the gel & one or two with the powder to make sure I don't gum things up. I found that wiping with lemon juice (or any form of citric acid) on a cloth gets rid of that bluish colour on the flatware & the tub (stainless steel) without any scrubbing. I haven't tried just throwing some in the dishwasher or sink & soaking; that might work too.

The value may vary from knife to knife. Normally, Frost kitchen cutlery is purchased in sets at about $60 dollars. Follow this line. Go to frostcutlery.com>Kitchen cutlery>Blo…ck sets>picture of knives. When sold individually; a chef knife is sold for $30-35,carving $20-25, bread $12-15,utility $10-14, paring $8-12. The reason for this pricing is these knives are forged instead of stamped (flat-styled knife). A stamped knife has a lower price, therefore, a lower value. Generally speaking...and that means 99% of the time...Frost knives, which are of course ALL manufactured in China, Pakistan, or India...are constructed of the least expensive stainless steel that can be shaped into anything resembling a knife. 440A, 420, 14000 Series from Germany, etc, all steels suitable for butterknives and cheap K-Mart screws and/or hinges. Not that any of the above steels are in and of themselves bottom of the barrel...low quality but not the worst...but with horrible heat treatments such as is done by Frost's Chinese business partners, they should not be considered suitable blade materials. The average 5" fixed blade from China, purchased in lots of at least 200-250, go for approximately $2.00, shipping included, to the Frost warehouse in Tennessee. In the quantity Frost purchases, that cost goes down considerably.
holy dude what kinda question is that its a watch not a dish

I found this product in the US for Stainless Steel Restoration. Check this out.
ordinary steel will oxidize and rust when exposed to water; stainless steel has chromium which prevents this from happening
because of all the grease that gets on it, it needs to clean so they used STAINLESS steel and also beause we use cutlery to eat so it always has to be looking cleaning or else… if they used steel it self you may be affected with chemicals or sorts of kind thats another reason why we used STAINLESS.
it doesn't rust
Because steel is a ferro-magnetic material.
there should be a relevant link in the manual, if not just search for the part numbers online
The advantages of having a stainless steel dishwasher include the easy clean up and the ability to match any color scheme. Additionally, they look more expensive and will give… any kitchen a modern touch.
