Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

It\'s all gross and yucky! (maybe not after all)

Okay, I consider myself (as a full on type A) a very neat and clean individual. When I cook, dishes and pans are washed and put away as steps are completed and when dinner is done nothing remains but the serving dishes, utensils and dishes...

...however, I have NEVER IN MY LIFE cleaned my knife block. So, while cleaning the kitchen this morning (it was on my honey do list, daughter coming home to visit on Monday), I moved the knife block and thought, I wonder just HOW I WOULD GO ABOUT CLEANING THIS THING...it has to be growing SOMETHING deep down in those crevices...Okay, Advise Away forum bros and sis's...

...later tonight, a non-red-meat dinner and veggie dish never posted before, can't wait to try the new recipes.
Thanks
Tony

    Throw it in the dishwasher and take out before the hot dry cycle as the heat may loosen the glue.

    Never thought of the knife block that way, I just bought a new one. Wainting for your new dishes.

    By the way, I only ASSUME it is gross and yucky, I clean my knives before reinserting everytime, it just seems to make sense something is down there after all these years doesn't it?

  • never allow a wood cutting board to become sodden and soaking wet, it will swell and when it shrinks it will crack and (potentially) warp

    salt and lemon juice rubbed into the block is one treatment, as is a wipe down with mild bleach/water solution as a sanitizing agent.

    if it is really bad, you could always sand it down and retreat with mineral oil.

    other oils can become rancid (olive oil, fats, etc.), but mineral oil is non-toxic and will provide a decent moisture barrier.

    but never ever ever soak a wood cutting board

    Stike...

    I've seen a lot of bad advice pedaled here as of late...but I will meet you somewhere around Memphis...so we can drive south together, (gathering our Possee along the way)...
    and once in Florida, beat Richard's little ass till he cries like a baby, and then we'll get all liquored up and stuff him...in a dishwasher!!

    Waddy'a say?

    Okay, I probably jumped the gun, after removing all the knives I discovered that the (wusthoff) block knife holes go all the way through the block, duh...upon a closer inspection only ONE hole had a few crumbs near the base...I took it to the garage and blew compressed air through it, brought it back in, oiled it up with my butcher block oil, retunred the knives and now it is nap time before tonights cooking....

    Thanks all, Keep On Eggin'

    Capt.; at least it didn't turn into a debate about anonymous posters it only turned into a roast of Richard for his advice, and thanks Richard, I might have considered your recommendation had I not looked closer...Tony

  • um. if you want to discuss murdering him and dismembering him and putting him in a large home appliance for dumping elsewhere, send me a private email. i'd hate to discuss this on an open forum.

    :blink:

    (note to the litigious and paranoid, that was hyperbole)

  • looks like richard gets to live another day.

    speaking of jumping the gun, i noticed you said 'knifeblock' but my entire brain and body (not much of either) saw it as "cutting block"

    shows you what i know :laugh:
