First things first: all of your preps need to go into the refrigerator within two hours -- and just one hour if your room temperature is 90 F or higher -- of coming out of the oven. Letting them sit out any longer puts you at higher risk of food poisoning. Food-borne illness causing bacteria can proliferate so quickly that they actually double every twenty minutes! Your delicious and lovingly prepared preps can become little toxin bombs in very little time, so please please please be careful to put it into the fridge quickly.
You reach for them, rely on them, and press them into active “KP duty” like few other tools in your kitchen, making them essential to your healthy eating plan. But now they might be rusted, warped or even disintegrating.
The manufacturer's warranty—in large, bold print—fortifies your idea that you just might have a case to wage, because the warranty clearly says that your kitchen knives are covered by a “lifetime guarantee.”
