Do you know the best way to prevent tears when cutting onions? Use a sharp knife. It’s not an old wives’ tale. Sharp knifes will slice through your vegetables—and meat—rather than crushing their way through to the cutting board. Sharp knives are also safer than dull knives. It may sound counterintuitive, but the fact is a sharp knife is less likely to slip and cause injury. Yet people still fail to sharpen their kitchen knives. With an electric knife sharpener, there is really no excuse not to. Chef’s Choice has a line of sharpeners that will make quick work of your knives. The AngleSelect model 1520 has three stages, designed for American/European, Asian and serrated knives, and it’s easy to use. In less than 2 minutes, a knife that was once junk is like new. If you are buying a sharpener as a gift, the 1520 is the way to go, because it will work on most blades. For yourself, check out chefschoice.com for a sharpener model that is tailored to your cutlery collection.
