Are you planning to make dinner for the love of your life this Valentine’s Day? If you are, make sure your knives are nice and sharp! Making a meal for your significant other is a great way to show them that you care. It means that you care enough to take time out of your busy day, just for them. Unfortunately, if you have a dull knife, then it can be harder to make that special meal. If that’s the case, here are a few tips you can use to keep your knives sharp this Valentine’s Day.
Pick Your Cutting Surface Carefully
Be careful what you use as your cutting surface. If possible, use a softer material for your cutting board, like a butcher’s block one plastic one. Don’t use hard surfaces that can chip or dull the blade of your knife. By using the right kind of cutting surface, you’re sure to keep your knives sharp this Valentine’s Day.
Use a Knife Block
A knife block is a great way to keep your knives sharp this Valentine’s Day. When you put your knives in a drawer, you run the risk of dulling them when the blade rubs and bang against other objects in the drawer. Instead, slip your knives into a knife block for storage.
Sharpen Your Knives
Not only should you be careful with how you use your knives, you should also take care of them by sharpening the blades. Sharpening them on a regular basis will keep the blades in good condition, letting you cut anything you want with ease. I have found that AnySharp Pro is an easy and painless way to sharpen any blade in my kitchen. Not only does it do a great job of creating a sharp edge on my knife blade, it’s also small so easy to store.
If this sounds like a great gift to give to your significant other this Valentine’s Day, you can go to their website to find out how to buy one for yourself. You can follow AnySharp on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
