The Cheese Knife

We are feeling the effects of the change of seasons, and that tells us the holidays are just around the corner. So we’ve been thinking of the needs of holiday hosts and hostesses and have included a unique knife in our inventory that we know you will love.

It is simply called The Cheese Knife, and it is simply a smart design made in the USA that will make slicing cheeses and other soft foods safe and easy. It is made of Ultem Resin and is not sharp to the touch, making it safe for kids and the buffet table. It can handle temperatures up to 430˚F, so it is dishwasher-safe and stain resistant. The unique blade design forces food away from the blade as you slice down, so absolutely nothing sticks! It is perfect for slicing hard-boiled eggs, cake, brownies, and even butter. The textured grip handle fits comfortably in your hand and looks nice to have out with your cheeses when entertaining.

Stop by The Good Cooking Store to check out this incredible knife that sells for $19.99. Or contact us at 877-525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to order yours today!


WOTW-2

Lettuce Knife

Lettuce knives are so versatile, a must for any kitchen. Did you know they do more than lettuce?

These sturdy plastic knives are superior to stainless knives for food prep because they do not turn lettuce or fruit brown. The blade is sharp enough to cut up apples or pears for a fruit salad or thinly slice lettuce for toppings on sandwiches. It is safe on nonstick or delicate surfaces and great for kids that like to help in the kitchen. It’s a little-known trick that a lettuce knife is the best brownie or dessert bar knife, gliding with ease and not crushing the bars into crumbs. They are safe enough to put in your drawer without a sheath since they are sharp enough to go through foods, but will not cut your skin. And it’s fine to pop them in the dishwasher when you’re done using them.

We can’t stop saying enough great things about these awesome knives. Stop in, or contact us at (877) 525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to pick yours up today!


WOTW

Watermelon Knife

There is nothing like a nice slice of fresh, cool watermelon on a hot summer day! We have the perfect tool to get the job done quickly and fashionably: the Watermelon Knife.

This serrated stainless carbon knife is coated in a red silicone coating to both resembles a watermelon and allows the knife to glide with ease. The decorative holes that resemble seeds on the blade act as a traditional Santoku chef’s knife and allow air to get between the melon and the knife, giving the cleanest slices through the toughest of rinds. The blade length is perfect for every size melon and the textured handle gives you a secure grip even when wet. The knife is dishwasher safe and comes with a protective sheath for safe storage.

Take the Watermelon Knife to your next picnic or BBQ since it does an excellent job on bread as well as watermelon. It also makes an excellent gift, so pick up a few to keep on hand. Stop in, or contact us at (877) 525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to pick yours up today!


Chef's Choice

German & Asian Pull Thru Sharpener

No one wants to be dull! A way to be sharp, and stay sharp is by using a quality sharpening device on your knives. We carry the model that the prestigious Cook’s Illustrated Magazine names as their favorite non-electric knife sharpener.

This made-in-the-USA sharpener is superior to other models because it will sharpen both German and Asian style blades along with serrated, pocket and sports knives. Most sharpeners will only do one or the other, so this sharpener will not only give you a sharper blade, but will save you money as well.

The device has three stages for the different styles of blades. Stage one is for Asian cutlery and any other blade requiring a 15° edge, stage two is for German and sports knives requiring a 20° edge, and stage three is for polishing the blade after using the stage one or two sharpeners as well as honing to maintain the edge. Not sure what this means or what kind of knives you have? We’d love to answer your questions!

Stop in today to pickup this clever sharpener, or contact us at 877-525-7745 or info@goodcookingstore.com to place an order!

Kyocera Ceramic Knife

A sharp knife is essential in any kitchen. We have a wonderful variety of knives at The Good Cooking Store, and each of us has a different favorite. However, we all agree that the Kyocera Ceramic Knife is a great tool to own.

Ceramic knives are incredibly sharp due to the hardness of ceramic itself. (Only diamond is harder as a natural substance.) These knives hold their sharpness about 10 times as long as stainless steel knives. They actually make cutting vegetables fun!

Stainless Steel Kapoosh

The Kapoosh Universal Knife Block

Want to know one of our best and easiest cooking tips?

Always use a sharp knife.

Yup, that’s it. Honestly, life is so much better when you have a knife that actually cuts through a butternut squash or a roast. You save time and energy. Besides, a sharp knife is actually much safer because it’s less likely to slip while you’re cutting something and nick your fingers.

Since we opened The Good Cooking Store, we’ve all purchased a few knives. But a good knife deserves a good home and we weren’t sure where to store ours. Then we discovered the Kapoosh Knife Block.

The Kapoosh features moveable “fibers” that are fully adjustable and hold any type of knife in any position – no slots required. So it easily houses our odd collection of paring knives, bread knives, and chef knives.

These fibers are removable and dishwasher safe.

Available in either solid hardwood or stainless steel, it’ll match almost any kitchen décor.

The Kapoosh Knife Block is available from The Good Cooking Store and they do ship. Click here for information on how to reach them.
