Is there a finish which is dishwasher safe? I have high quality saucpans which were made when dishwashers were not so popular. The wooden handles are quickly stripped by the caustic content of the washer chemical. The only substance I have found is slow acting Araldite mixed and coated on the wooden handles, however the instructions on the Araldite packaging says 'keep away from food'! Is there a wood turner out there who has made knife handles and coated them successfully?
