The Knives you need

Good sharp knives are the at foundation of good cooking and equipping your kitchen with them will help you become a better cook. Sharp consistent knives promote better knife skills, promote more even chopping and cutting meaning fewer small burned pieces or larger undercooked checks of ingredients. Now doubt all of us recall Cutco knives from high school or the late night stuff of infomercials pushed by the likes of Billy Mays – we are not here to talk about those types of knives. Real chefs knives are rarely sold by late night pitchmen or door-to-door salesmen.

The 3-in-1 Multi-Cooker – Your Kitchen Needs One.

This has rapidly become my new favorite tool in the kitchen, why it took until now to really reach the market is beyond me. The 3-in-1 multi-cooker is the very logical evolution of three very similar tools. This gadget combines the slow cooking of a crock pot – with high heat sauté settings and steam setting for things like rice. It immediately eliminates the need for a rice cooker saving you space in the kitchen. From there the sauté settings give you expanded cooking flexibility for those busy holiday gatherings. Sear, Brown, Sauté, Steam, Stew – this does it all.
