The Basic Kitchen — Knives

Invest in high-quality knives and keep them sharp and correctly washed and stored. The best are made of high-carbon stainless steel with the steel running through the entire length of the knife. Wash in warm soapy water, and never put it in the dishwasher. Dry well and store in a knife block, blade side up. Placing in a block, the blade side down dulls the knife each time it is removed or replaced in a block.
