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, never put in the dishwasher. Dry well and store in a knife block, blade side up. Placing in a block, blade side down dulls the knife each time it is removed or replaced in a block.
