Knowing a little about knives makes cooking at home easier.
  • Using a sharper knife is safer than using a dull knife. You are less likely to slip and cut yourself when the knife is sharp.

  • Use a big knife to cut large foods and a small knife for small foods.

  • Pay close attention when cutting your foods - always look at what you are cutting.

  • Cut food so that there is one flat side. Lay the food on the flat side so it doesn't roll around, then continue cutting.
