Your Silverware, Servingware, and Cutlery

The same rule applies to this as does the pots and pans: there can be gluten bits stuck in the grooves of your knives. I went ahead and bought a set of knives for myself, because of their tendency to contain gluten. I don’t let anyone use my knives on anything that contain gluten, so it’s not cross-contaminated.

Personally, I kept my old silverware. I think it would be too hard to make sure to keep them completely clean when I have gluten constantly coming in and out of my kitchen. I just make sure that everything goes into the dishwasher to be cleaned as thoroughly as possible. Some people disagree and keep a separate set. I just don’t have the space for it. Just make sure to label it if you do.

I also got a new set of cooking utensils because most of the ones that I had have scratches on them, so their risk of contamination is high. Also, it’s hard to get whisks and spatulas really clean, even if you put them in the dishwasher, so I have a separate set than my roommate. Plus, they are such easy and inexpensive gifts, that I just asked for a new set for Christmas. ;)
