We used to watch our mom prepare our favorite meal and we were very impressed at how fast and skilled she was at chopping.
She told us that it was because she had a “very sharp knife.”
We didn’t think too much about what our mom said until we were grown-ups and had to prepare our meals.
True to it, chopping is more challenging and it takes longer with dull and chipped knives.
They are also more difficult and even dangerous to use which increases your risk of cutting your fingers and not to mention, ineffective! That’s when mom’s words hit us hard — we need sharp knives in the kitchen!
