45 Kitchen Mistakes You Need to Stop Making

Not Sharpening Knives Regularly

“People think they can sharpen their knife once every five years, yet a sharp knife makes all the difference in the world with everything in the kitchen,” According to Robert Ramsey, Chef Instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education. “Even if you’re a casual cook that makes two to three meals a week, you should still be sharpening your knives at least two to four times a year.”

Ramsey recommends avoiding this kitchen mistake by spending a few extra dollars and getting your knives professionally sharpened, as it’s super easy to accidentally chip or break the blade. And no, that metal rod that comes in most knife kits isn’t a knife sharpener. It’s actually called a honing steel that’s used to straighten, not sharpen, the blade. Sharpen your knives like a pro with these tips from an expert cutler.
