December 31, 2008 Knives are an essential part of any kitchen - germs aren't. This sanitary knife block promises a high level of protection against cross-contamination by using UV-C light technology to sterilize your blades, getting rid of 99.99% of food bacteria and viruses in a process that takes just 20 seconds.
The device works by drying and sterilizing rinsed cutlery once it's placed in the block and can be set-up to operate automatically every three hours or as soon as the knives are inserted.
The plastic block caters for five knives up to 8 3/4" long and also has a wider slot for kitchen shears or a honing steel.
This salmonella safety net is currently available from Hammacher Schlemmer for USD$39.95.Share
