Buy This, Not That
The difference between using a good knife and a not-so-good one is akin to “breaking carrots versus mechanically separating them,” says Tyler Kord, owner of No. 7 restaurant in Brooklyn, which was named one of Bon Appetit’s top new restaurants in America in 2009.

While it’s great to have a knife that can chop through vegetables and protein with ease, it’s also nice to have a knife that can be used for cutting breads, tomatoes and meats. For this, Conant recommends the Victorinox Swiss Army 10-1/4” Serrated Bread Knife with a Fibrox Handle. Featuring a non-slip, ergonomic handle, can also be used for spreading icing on cakes or cupcakes. “It’s great for everyday use,” Conant, author of “Peace, Love, and Pasta: Simple and Elegant Recipes from a Chef’s Home Kitchen” says.
