I don’t have a recipe for you guys today, but I have something just as exciting – A GIVEAWAY! It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these on the blog and I thought it was far time we remedied that.
I love my knives, the ones I’ve had for years and years. So much love goes into every single slice, chop and mince. They’ve seen me through three houses, a fire, three dogs – two careers, a failed book. Normal people probably don’t get it, but when you’re a cook, your knives? They are apart of you. The reasons your recipes succeed are owed as much to them as they are to your talent.
So when Calphalon reached out to me about trying a new set, I was extremely skeptical. What, like replace my knives? However, I have to say – it was love at first slice.
These knives cut like butter, truthfully. They cut as smooth and as elegantly as my far-more expensive knives. As much as I love slicing, chopping and mincing with them, the self-sharpening aspect has to be my favorite. The block automatically sharpens the straight edge knives with every single use. No more sharpening on your own – they do it for you! For gals with full time jobs and busy travel schedules, things that handle their own sharpening and maintenance are probably my favorites.
The chef knife, bread knife, santoku knife and parer are all made with high-carbon, no-stain German steel while the steak knives are made with stamped Asian steel. I’m not lying when I say these are seriously sexy, seriously powerful knives.
And because I love you, one of you will win one of your very own! Retailing at $180, this is a seriously good deal. To enter, simply fill out the easy prompts below. Giveaway ends July 24 at midnight. GOOD LUCK!
