Our No. 1 choice for sharpening knives at home, it features a unique timer-driven belt system that works exactly like a professional sharpener’s grinder, putting a fine razor edge on blades without removing too much metal (the problem with other electric grinders).

The E5 is available on its own or bundled together with Work Sharp’s M3 Knife Sharpener, which is a classic honing rod made simpler to use.*

DMT 8" DuoSharp Bench Stone with Base
For those in favor of ultimate control over their knife edges, a sharpening stone is in order. While it’s easy enough to find a cheap whetstone at the hardware store, they are usually too small and coarse for precision kitchen knives. We’re pleased to partner with industry experts DMT and offer their American-made Duosharp Bench Stone with Base, a dual-sided stone with an engineered diamond-impregnated cutting surface for effective, lifetime service. At 8 inches by 2.6 inches, the stone is larger than any other whetstone we’ve used and provides for the full length of a large chef’s knife to be sharpened at once, making it much easier to maintain a consistent angle than on smaller stones. Moreover, they only require water for lubrication, making them far tidier than oil stones.
Like driving a manual transmission or tying a Windsor knot, stone knife sharpening takes practice to master but is a valuable lifetime skill. For starters, it’s imperative to maintain a consistent angle on each side of the blade: 20 degrees for Western-style knives and roughly 17 degrees for Asian knives. If you have trouble sorting out the angle, hold the blade at 90 degrees, then tip sideways halfway to 45 degrees, then halfway again to 22.5 degrees, then a hair more beyond that. To maintain the angle while sharpening, it helps to anchor your thumb in the middle of the top of the blade and sharpen by pivoting with your body, not through your arms. Starting with the grittier side, gently swipe the full length of the blade 5 to 8 times on each side. Flip the stone over and repeat with the finer grit surface to hone and polish. Make sure to wipe the blade clean before cooking to remove any metal dust.
Knapp Made Cast Iron Wax
Knapp's Cast Iron Wax is incredibly easy to apply and makes seasoning your cast-iron cookware a breeze. Liquid cooking oils will get the job done but tend to make a mess, and it's hard to control how much oil you add at a time. Knapp's food-safe blend of grapeseed oil, canola oil and beeswax is solid at room temperature, so you have perfect control. Simply scoop up what you need and apply a thin, even layer to cast-iron cookware—just be careful not to over-apply, or your pan will become sticky.
Knapp Made Chainmail Dishcloth Scrubber
If you’re sick of struggling to remove stuck food from your pans, skillets and Dutch ovens, Knapp's patented Chainmail Dishcloth is the tool for you. The tightly woven stainless steel “fabric” has a rough enough texture to take on the most stubborn stuck-on bits but also won't damage cast-iron seasoning. Knapp's product features a larger chainmail link in one corner so you can hang it up to dry and keep it in top condition. Note that this scrubber is intended for Pyrex, cast iron, carbon steel and stainless steel pans; it will damage non-stick pans or other delicate surfaces. Try it on your grill as well—it works wonders on the grubbiest grate.
Knapp Made CM 6X9 Scrubber for Pots & Dishes
If you’re sick of struggling to remove stuck food from your pans, Knapp's chainmail dish scrubber is the tool for you. Knapp's intricate chain mail is tough enough to take on the most stubborn stuck-on bits, and the links are just the right size: large enough that food doesn't get stuck in them but small enough to easily reach the corners of pans. The food-grade stainless steel will last a lifetime, though it needs to be hung up to dry; Knapp's design features a larger chainmail link in one corner for hanging. Note that this scrubber is intended for Pyrex, cast iron, carbon steel and stainless steel pans; it will damage non-stick pans or other delicate surfaces. Try it on your grill as well—it works wonders on the grubbiest grate.

The CM Scrubber's slightly larger links create plenty of friction for heavy-duty jobs like cleaning your grill, while the Chainmail Dishcloth has a finer texture for everyday cleaning; use it to scrub cast-iron or carbon-steel cookware without damaging your seasoning. Note that the scrubbers are intended for Pyrex, cast iron, carbon steel and stainless steel pans; they may damage non-stick pans or other delicate surfaces.

J.K. Adams Wood Conditioning Mineral Oil
For high-quality wooden cutting boards, we recommend regularly using a wood conditioner, which not only keeps water out but also lubricates the surface so it doesn't become rough, especially in drier winter months. Plus, regular polishing will bring out the beautiful wood grain of your kitchenware over time. For everyday maintenance, we like to buff our cutting boards with a cotton cloth and J.K. Adams' food-safe mineral oil. The Vermont-based company—which we partnered with to produce our Milk Street Exclusive eBoard—has more than 70 years of experience in crafting and caring for beautiful hardwood kitchenware.
