I know that life how-to’s are not very exciting or fun, but they’re valuable life skills and seeing as this was all stuff that I set out to do during the first of the year I’m happy it’s getting done. I just wish I hadn’t waited so long to do it. Regular maintenance, especially of your kitchen equipment, is very important. Sharp knives are a must if you basically spend any time in the kitchen whatsoever.
Knife sharpening is surprisingly easy and basic, and the only bit of special equipment that you need is a sharpening stone. We bought ours off of Amazon, and they vary and price and quality based on what you need it to do and how much traffic it will see. Clearly, our knives see a lot of traffic so we needed something that could take the abuse.
This is an incredibly easy thing that you can do to extend the life of your blades. It’s absolutely necessary, especially if you’re a fan of cooking like we are. This doesn’t take more than an hour of your time and the results are really worth it.
Lots of Love,
