Colori Classic Set

I have never been professionally trained, but I have attended a few classes at a professional cooking school (Western Reserve Cooking School). Being a student, I tried to observe and take in all that I could. What I noticed was that all of the knifes they choose to use there are Kuhn Rikon. If they are good enough for this amazing school they must be good enough for my own kitchen. After doing some research I was so excited to see that they are truly in the average consumers budget. A knife, or a knife set, is not something you constantly purchase. You buy a set a stick with it for several years. You want a knife that will maintain its integrity and keep sharp. I have found that when treated and washed properly that a Kuhn Rikon knife will keep sharp far longer than any other knife I have worked with.

I highly suggest trying out Kuhn Rikon’s Colori®+ Classic Culinary Knife Set. The set contains: a paring knife, a serrated paring, a utility knife, and a serrated utility knife. Each knife has a sharp Japanese stainless steel blade with a colorful ergonomic handle and matching safety sheath. Japanese stainless steel blades are super sharp, making short work of cooking tasks.

With summertime here I am waiting with baited breath for my tomato plants to blossom. The tiny little yellow buds are now starting to blossom and I get excited every I see a bee happily pollinating my garden. In the meanwhile I have to visit my local grocer to stock up on my weekly tomatoes. I use them in so many meals. In salads, salsa, mixed in with vegetables in a saute, topping a hearty burger. The list is endless. Being such a primary staple in so many homes, its a wonder how I have managed with a Kuhn tomato knife. I always used a steak knife or a small paring knife when dealing with tomatoes. I never thought twice about sing a knife that was custom made for this delicious fruit before.

 How to correctly hold a knife using the Professional Pinch Grippinchgrip


I have fond memories of my grandmother and paring knives. She would always use them, I mean always. When I told my mother about writing this review she instantly thought of her mother. My grandmother grew up on a farm. She used every part of everything. She would use a paring knife to get small bits of meat off a bone, she would cut an apple so that all parts could be eaten, she really loved her paring knives. Below are a few examples of the many ways to use a paring knife.

System Knife Sharpener – Review

Knife Sharpener DragSys

System Knife Sharpener

As a home cook I am always looking for ways to sharpen my techniques and skills. Now I found a super-easy way to sharpen my knives too (okay okay that was beyond stupid and cheesy just soak in the awkwardness)! I was recently asked to review System Knife Sharpener from DragSys.

This particular system is to be used for kitchen knives, fruit knives, hunting knives, etc. I usually take my knives to a mobile sharpening company and that has worked really well for me over the years. GoSharpening.com is a mobile knife sharpening in NYC and it’s similar to the local company I use. I wanted to try a system knife sharpener for a change, so here are my thoughts.

It has a suction cup design, which is safer and convenient, and ideal for one handed sharpening. It has 2 stages for coarse and fine-sharpening. It features a unique sharpening wheel design that is convenient to sharpen back and forth.

Instructions for stainless steel knives:

Step 1: Course Sharpening

Suitable for blunt knives. Place the Vertoku knives in the sharpening slot. Using slight downward pressure, run the blade from its heel to its point though the slot. Repeat three to five times. Sharpen tools every six months or when necessary.

Step 2: Fine Honing

This is a necessary step used to eliminate burrs on a knife and to polish it. Place a knife in the sharpening slot. Using slight downward pressure run the blade from its heel to its point through the slot. Repeat three to five times. Normally, it is recommended to sharpen a knife once a week to keep your blade sharp at all times.


Please keep in mind that this sharpener isn’t suitable for serrated bladed and scissors. This sharpener can also be used for ceramic knives, but only for coarse sharpening (step 1). Do not put this sharpener in the dishwasher and always keep it away from children’s reach.
