The Best Kitchen Knives Online-My Favorite Cutting Tools for the Kitchen

Updated on August 24, 2017

Kitchen Knives For Your Kitchen

My Favorite of Best Kitchen Knives Online. I have always been a fan of quality cookware and things for my kitchen I have owned these kitchen knives for over 30 years. Although I lost my first set in Hurricane Katrina, I soon discovered they were important tools in my kitchen. My husband surprised me one day by ordering new Cutco Chef set to replace the ones I lost. I know that most people don't have the luxury of purchasing a complete set at a time. I was lucky to have a husband who realized how important they were to me. He also likes my cooking so he wanted to make sure I was happy so I would cook his favorite meals.

I have been cooking for a long time and have experience with knives of lesser quality. I know that if the knife doesn't do it's job you will have trouble making cooking an enjoyable experience. Many people find that the most difficult task of cooking is cutting up all of the foods you need to prepare a nice meals. If you are an experienced cook or just learning treats yourself to a quality knife set and your cooking experience will be a pleasure rather than a chore. I learned this the hard way, when I lost mine.

Cutting tools are the most important thing I use everyday in my cooking. All cutting utensils should be purchased with the expectation that they will be used in your kitche for a lifetime. Keeping this in mind when deciding to purchase the Cutco set will make a big difference to your cooking experience. It was not a decision to made lightly. I know that our original purchase in the late 70's had met all the challenges of everyday use and the steak knife we used for our guest place settings were the best for cutting meats and other foods we serve to them. I believe you too will find this to be true about any of the Cutco tools you may purchase.

There are claims by other companies to be the best, but the Cutco knife proved to me that it was the best. I know that this new set we purchased will give us the same reliable use as our old set did. When you are making a purchase for something this important you need to know that they are made to last. Surprisingly, none of mine have needed to be professionally sharpened over the years and they perform just like new every time I use them. If they need a new professional sharpening all I need to do is ship them back and they will be sharpened for free for my lifetime.

Vegetable Soup Recipe

I love to cook and be in the kitchen. This is my favorite vegetable soup recipe. It takes some skill to get all of the vegetable the same size so they can cook easily. This is not a problem for me since I have my good knife to do all the work.

Kids love the alphabet noodles in this soup. I always use organic veggies in mine so I know it is good for them. The grandkids always ask to take some home to their house. They were thrill one day when I couldn't find alphabet noodles at the grocery store and found stars instead. They though it was the greatest thing that ever happened. They couldn't get enough that day.

Alphabet Vegetable Soup Recipe

1 cup each:

diced carrots

diced potatoes

diced tomatoes

fresh English peas

fresh green beans

fresh corn kernels

1/2 cup diced sweet onion

8 cups of water

1 can of tomato paste or spaghetti sauce

salt & pepper to taste

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon parsley

Add later: 4 ounces of alphabet noodles (the starch from the noodle will thicken the soup)

In a large soup pot put all of the ingredients. Place on high heat and bring to a boil, then lower the heat to simmer for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Just before serving the soup add the alphabet noodles and continue to cook until the noodles are tender and have increased in size. Serve in soup bowls with bread or crackers.

This soup may be stored in the refrigerator for several days or frozen for later use. Keep in mind any foods with tomato based sauces will not spoil in the refrigerator for about a week due to their acid content.
