Tip of the Day: Knives

Tip of the Day

If you plan to be the main cook of the household, you’ll need a decent set of knives.  The best thing I can say is to stay away from ANY serrated knives.  They only tear the product instead of slicing it.  IMHO, the only thing you’d need a serrated knife for is cutting bread, and they make long serrated blades for that.

The absolute CHEAPEST knives that I would use is Faberware from Wal-mart (again, non-serrated).  I’ve got an EXCELLENT set of Cutco knives that will run a little over $150-$500 for a set with a block.  Which ever set you decide to go with, remember that you’ll need a knife sharpener if the set doesnt come with one.  I recommend one of those stick type sharpeners (preferably ceramic).   It keeps your knives sharp and you look cool while sharpening!
