Most Important Tool in the Kitchen

Hello Friends.  

I hope you are enjoying a peaceful weekend.  

One of the things I enjoy doing on weekends is cooking.  Ask any famous chef what the most important tool is in the kitchen and they will inevitably say sharp knives.  I have two sets of knives in my kitchen.  Until recently, mine were anything but sharp and I have knicked fingers to prove it.  

I was thrilled when I was contacted by CSN Stores to do my first review and I knew exactly what I wanted to test, a knife sharpener. 

CSN Stores serves like an online shopping mall with more then 200 individual stores at your fingertips.  Many items are shipped for free to the US and Canada.

Originally, my thought was to choose a manual knife sharpener, but then I remembered the electric knife sharpener we used to use at the restaurant I worked at for many years.  I can't even tell you how many pages of knife sharpeners popped up when I typed it in the search box.  I settled on the Eversharp made by Presto.
It has a three-stage process.  The far left stage is only used for the first sharpening and only when the knife is extremely dull.  Basically, this stage puts a new edge on the blade.  The other two stages are used for regular sharpening and for smoothing the rough edges after Stage One. 
I liked this sharpener because it adjusts to the thickness of the knife being sharpened.  I found CSN Stores' website to be very user-friendly.  My package came in less than a week and I am very pleased with the sharpener.

It arrived just in time for our Mardi Gras celebration.  Making Jambalaya entails a considerable amount of chopping.  Thanks to my new Presto Everharp and CSN Stores, no fingers were injured during the preparation of our feast. 
I will be linking this post to Mosaic Monday.  Be sure to stop by and see some beautiful collages.

  7. That sounds like a great product. My knives always need sharpening but it may be because I use them for screw drivers or whatever I need at the time:(
