Henckels Santoku Knife
Finally, my brain kicked into gear, and I thought of the perfect Christmas present for…well…”someone” on my Christmas list. So I thought I’d share it with you, in case you have any hard-to-buy-for folks, too.
Your mother probably told you, “You’ll save time in the kitchen by using the right tool for the right job.” Well, if she didn’t…I’m telling you now.
And the absolute right tool for food prep is the J.A. Henckels Twin Four Star Series 7-Inch Santoku Knife with Hollow Edge. Keep in mind, I have plenty of other Henckels knives. I always thought they did a great job. But I was taunted by that new cool-shaped knife so many chefs on TV made look like magic. Well, to my surprise, it is!
The Henckels Four Star Santoku knife has to have a little magic fired into it, because it improved my knife skills dramatically…immediately. I honestly think you’ll have the same experience. Hey, I used to avoid making cole slaw ‘cause I didn’t want to get out the mandoline or the food processor, and then clean it all afterwards. Not anymore. In just a short minute my Henckels Santoku knife leaves a mound of ridiculously thin cabbage all ready to dress. Ridiculously thin…restaurant thin. And there’s no equipment to clean up. I use it for prepping just about everything now. If I could only own one knife…this would be the one.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. There are cheaper santoku knives around. Well, sure. There are $19.00 shoes, too. Do you generally go for those? No. Listen, I’m nothing if not cheap…but a good kitchen knife is not something to scrimp on. You’ll know the difference in quality because this knife feels substantial while at the same time comfortable in your hand (I think the pros call that “balance”). And like the rest of my Henckels Four Star collection, this knife will probably outlast me. So for both the short term and for the long term…don’t scrimp…not on what is going to become your new best friend in the kitchen.
And by the way, I’m not tellin’ which one of you is getting it on Christmas morning!!! But if you don’t get it from me, you can buy your own through this link at a great price from Amazon.
I’d like you to know that if you purchase this product from one of my links I may receive a small advertising commission. However, maintaining an honest relationship with you is more important than the lure of advertising money. So regardless of the incentive, I only write about products that I actually use myself and am truly crazy in love with.
