Work Sharp

A sharp knife is not just one of the great joys of cooking. Yes, it will glide effortlessly through meats and slice and dice fruits and vegetables with ease. It’s also safer too, requiring less force to cut, and will never dangerously glance off a hard squash or slippery onion.

A recent Milk Street survey found that 70 percent of home cooks never sharp their knives! And that’s why so many of us do not like knife prep—it is both dangerous and time-consuming when using a dull knife. So many home cooks have dull knives because it's hard to find a professional sharpener, and home devices are complicated or do more damage than good to a quality knife.
