Before your first use, do the following:

You need to clean the electric knife by wiping it with a cloth or sponge with warm water and a soft detergent. Ensure that you are using a detergent that is dedicated to this kind of material and not one that is too harsh so that you won't blunt the tips of the blades. While doing this, ensure no part of the knife is immersed in the body of water. Then allow it to dry before using it.
