Kashrus alert on knife sharpening at Cutco, Wilmette, IL

May 19, 2017: from the cRc

Effective immediately, due to recent revelations regarding the knife sharpening process, the Chicago Rabbinical Council (cRc) no longer recommends using the Cutco Kitchen store at 3207 W. Lake Avenue, Wilmette, IL to sharpen kosher knives. Consumers are reminded that knives should only be sent for sharpening to stores which do not pose a kashrus concern. The two main concerns are that the sharpening companies might wash your kosher knife with other non‐kosher knives, and that they might switch your knife for an identical non‐kosher one.
