15) Use Good Knives
Chopping up your food, whether it be meat or vegetables, will take much longer, look sloppier, and require more physical exertion if you are using bad quality knives, or if they are in need of sharpening. Quality knives aren’t cheap so be sure to take good care of them. The website thespruce.com has several tips for making your knives last. If you use a knife block for storage, buy one into which they slide sideways so they aren’t resting on the sharp edge. Keep knives sharpened because dull knives require you to use more force and increase risk of slipping. Although many knife sets are labeled as dishwasher friendly, hand washing is better for them. Finally, wood and bamboo are the best materials for cutting boards as ceramic and marble have no give.
