Chef’s Knife + 3 Ways to Cut an Onion

My favorite tool in the kitchen, hands down, is my high carbon, stainless steel chef’s knife. I always recommend investing in a full tang handle because your knife will last longer. Here are three of my favorite blades:

Wusthof Classic 8-inch Chef’s Knife

Mercer Culinary Renaissance 8-Inch Chef’s Knife

Mac Mighty Professional Hollow Edge Chef’s Knife, 8-inch

I also highly recommend a set of metal bowls for collecting scraps instead of making multiple trips to the trash can.
