Kitchen Knives Giveaway

I recently received these two knives from Big Kitchen

Mercer Renaissance Forged Riveted Hollow Edge Santoku Knife, 7 Inch

and

Mercer Renaissance Forged Riveted Chef’s Knife, 8 Inch

If there’s one piece of kitchen equipment that is mandatory, it’s a good knife.

Trying to cook, chop, slice ‘n dice, and simply be productive and efficient in the kitchen is impossible without a proper knife. Lightweight, flimsy, and dull knives are intolerable and I won’t use them.

When I am in the kitchen, I tend to put one (big) knife in my hand and keep it there until everything is chopped, sliced, minced, quartered, cut, and ready. Paring knives and smaller knives have their place, but I prefer bigger knives, in general.

Don’t be scared of the Big Guns.

From cleaning and slicing pineapple

to cleaning and chopping heads of lettuce

To chopping oranges and cucumbers for and Cucumber Orange Dill Relish

to cleaning and slicing watermelon

To dicing the Snickers bars for Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Or chopping the candy for 3 Musketeers Marshmallow Candy-Stuffed White Chocolate Cupcakes with Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream

…Not a day goes by where I don’t have my knife and cutting board out and in use. Repeat x17 times. Before noon on most days.

These Mercer knives are built solidly, feel nice in my hands, are heavy enough but not too heavy, and most importantly, they get the chopping job done.

    I don’t have a favorite knife because all of ours are so dull. Ugh, it’s so hard to chop anything. We do a LOT of chopping, from fruits to veges and lots and lots of herbs.

    Thanks for the giveaway…our favorite knife in the kitchen is an “ancient” chef’s knife that used to be my grandmother’s: razor sharp blade, hints of rust, with a wooden handle worn smooth from decades of use…use it to prep vegetables and cut the kid’s sandwiches !

    I use knives all the time, but mine are horrible. I try to sharpen them, but they’re never sharp enough. It’s so frustrating. I’m always chopp;ing something; either fruit, veggies for salad, or veggies for dinner.

    I wish I could say I have a favorite knife set that I use. But in my 12 years of marriage, we have yet to have a great knife set. That is why I would LOVE to win these knives!

    I currently use a 7″ Henckels, but I would love to switch to a japanese blade! I use it for everything except for tomatoes, which I think are too delicate for such a big knife!
