I don't even need to read the article about ceramic knives not being worth the cost.... To me, the most important thing is that the knife is sharp. It doesn't matter what you spend - if a knife is dull, it won't cut well. I buy used knives at a grinding shop for $1/each and then go back every few months to get them sharpened.

Erm... I really hope you know that is a spoof site..?!!?

Daniel said...

Hehe Stuart: I was hoping I'd catch a few more readers before giving it away.

Sadly, Daniel, it is so well written that people who should know better are caught offguard. One legislature advanced a bill to ban DHMO...

Melissa said...

Agree with Julia re. ceramic knives. Don't like 'em.

"only half will make it to your dinner table"

Ain't that the truth. ;) Adding these to my menu for next week again. Thanks, Dan.

I first read that DHMO spoof back in the early 90's when I was in the Navy. As a chemical/nuclear engineer, it CRACKED ME UP. Still does.
