7 Knives & Accessories You Want
When it comes to gift giving, you can never go wrong with beautiful, useful kitchen tools. Here are a few of my favorites.
For the avid entertainer:
Forget the electric carving knife, this set is where it’s at. Great for carving a turkey, Christmas ham, a big brisket, really any of the meaty holiday classics.
For the new homeowner/graduate:
Nice knives probably aren’t at the top of a recent grad’s shopping list. However, it’s one of the easiest ways to improve their food life. Treat them to something they never even knew they wanted with this two-piece starter knife set.
For an awesome budget gift:
I can’t say enough about these great shears. They’re an all-purpose tool that I find myself reaching for more and more. Best part? They won’t break the bank.
For the person who has everything:
We all have that hard to buy for person on our lists. For my friends and family, it might be me. Oops. You can’t go wrong with anything from Shun’s Dual Core line. Recently named Kitchen Knife of the Year at the annual Blade Show (yes, that’s a thing), the design, function and craftsmanship are top-notch. Best part—they’ve only just hit store shelves, so the likelihood anyone you know owns one is minimal.
For your favorite carnivore:
Most people have crappy steak knives that are no sharper than butter knives. Remedy that with these crazy-sharp, heirloom knives. They’ll love you forever.
For the person who’s still using a glass cutting board:
We all have that friend/family member still rocking the glass or crappy millimeter-thick plastic cutting board. Not only does the sound give me the willies, but they’re rough on your blades. Upgrade to this Hinoki board and everyone’s ears will thank you.
For the chef on the go:
There is nothing worse than using someone else’s dull, crappy knives. Admit it: you’ve thought for bringing your own knives to your in-laws. I travel with my knives all the time, and this bag makes it a breeze. Eight knife slots makes it easy to bring a few of your favorites along.
