OK, I admit it I love food safety but cooking is not forte. I just finished insulating my attic with Roxul and put my bread knife to great use. Then Roxul gave me a free knife. I continued with my kitchen bread knife.
Since I do not cook often, the bread knife from the kitchen was not missed - I have to be honest.
The insulation is now complete and the bread knife has been cleaned and put away.
Until this morning.
When I went to cut up some bacon, I reached for my old friend who has been in my hand allot these past several weeks. You guessed it, I picked up the bread knife to cut the bacon.
To my amazement, the bread knife cut better than my many other sharp knives! Wow!
I am in love with my bread knife.
Is there a kitchen tool that you consider your old friend?
I use one certain paring knife almost every time I cook Aside from that, my latest thing that might become a favorite is a floppy rubber pan or bowl cover (I don't even know what it's called). It looks like a round, flat rubbery thing with a small handle on top, and you can seal a bowl with it or use it to cover a pan that's cooking on the stove or microwave. It's wonderful.
Things I don't use as often but I thought I would (and everyone else swore they couldn't do without):
KitchenAid Mixer - the way everyone raved about them, I thought it would change my life. Not yet, but hoping.
VitaMix - I had an early romance with it, but I don't use it that often now.
