Episode 155 Choosing and Caring for Knives (Replay)

A sharp knife can make everything easier in the kitchen. The key is to select a good knife and keep it sharp. You can use an inexpensive manual sharpener, and electric sharpener, or take them to your local Willams Sonoma or Sur La Table store for sharpening.

You do not need an large butcher block full of knifes.  A few simple knifes are all you need. You should have a chef’s knife, paring knife and bread knife. They do not need to be super expensive or fancy. America’s Test Kitchen likes Victorinox and I am a fan of Zwilling Henckels Professional S knives.
