  1. I don’t care if any knife is marked “dishwasher safe” or not. All knives, indeed anything with a cutting edge should NOT be put in a dishwasher.
    Serrated steak knives are a little less of an issue, because the serrations can still “saw” through the meat. But don’t do it. And in fact, I recommend getting a knife sharpener with a diamond hone, and you can successfully sharpen serrated knives as long as you only hone the flat side.
    But, repeat, do NOT put ANY cutting edge in a dishwasher. It will in short time kill the edge, and you will have to sharpen it, or straighten it, or otherwise fix it. Not only do knives and things tangle with each other in the dishwasher, but the hot water and detergent will eat away at the knife edge.
    And remember, “stainless steel” isn’t stainless, it is stain resistant. If you leave any stainless steel knives in the dishwasher, a hot, wet environment, that can speed up the corrosion (that what the stains are) of the knives. This also tends to wreck the cutting edge. If you “must” use the dishwasher, take them out immediately after the dishwasher is done, dry them and put them away. However, the amount of time needed to wash them by hand is miniscule, so best bet, just wash ’em by hand, dry them, and put them away.
    Wash them by hand, dry them, and put them away so that they don’t jumble against each other in the drawer and they will last you for many, many years. Your great grandkids could still be using these beautiful knives.

  2. Yes. Lots of them.
    Any set from a decent cutlery manufacturer should be able to do that. I don’t know what these might be where you live, though.
    My suspicion is that you might be overlooking something. Do they come into contact with non-stainless steel? That’ll make most stainless blade steels rust, especially when wet. The cutlery baskets in many dishwashers are mild steel covered with some sort of plastic. If the coating has holes, that could be enough…
    And many stainless steels will develop surface rust if kept wet for too long. This can usually just be wiped off, or in worse cases removed with a scotch-brite pad or something like it.
