In my introduction to my ambassadorship with Chicago Cutlery, I mentioned that we eat organic whole foods and how fearful I was to use knives in the kitchen. When eating real foods, it’s a bit difficult to get around having to chop and dice, so I needed more confidence and incentive to use my knives and hone my skills. Chicago Cutlery DesignPro has certainly done that and is continually aiding me in that venture. These knives make the strokes more accurate and effortless (great for fine slicing), so cutting is not as time consuming. That means more time with my family and less time in the kitchen.
As you will see in the demo video below, I have finally conquered my fear of the serrated knife. Keep in mind that I am no master at this – I am not a graceful nor fast cutter, and my knife skills are still lacking after my minor setback. I also have featured my husband using the knives for the Kenyan dish I mentioned in my last post.
I used to think that chopping confidence only came with tons of practice and lots of proper schooling. And while that may still hold true to some degree (at least if you want to have your own cooking show), it’s really not all about practice and schooling. The difference is actually in the knife. You need the proper grip on a good, sharp knife that feels comfortable in your hand. Once you have that, you can have the confidence to face almost any kitchen challenge. Chopping fears? Consider them virtually obliterated with the new Chicago Cutlery DesignPro knives. Now in the kitchen, I say bring it on! Well, almost.
I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Chicago Cutlery and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
