5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for every kitchen, Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
ATK cookbooks should be in every home cooks kitchen. They test and retest recipes and they are designed for the home cook.
The writing is very clear and easy to understand. The results of these recipes are always consistent.

If you get one cookbook you should get one from Americas Test Kitchen, and with all of the titles they have you can easily find one that matches your interest

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting knife, Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love Shun knives, and bought this one, it is well balanced, and easy to use a great overall knife. My only thing with this knife and a lot of others on the market is that I have limited use for it. I may use this one 3 times a year, while I use my chefs knife daily if you do the math it does not add up.

Calphalon Contemporary 5-Inch Santoku Knife

4.0 out of 5 stars Good small knife, Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an overall good knife, if you want Santoku knifes that are reasonably priced Calphalon has a coule of great ones.
The blade is sharp and if you maintain it, it will last you years. as a western edge on it so you can sharpen it with a wet stone or machine easily. The blades do not knick easily
I have limited use for this knife as I prefer the longer blade (just a personal preference) so if you prefer the longer blade Calphalon offers the 7 inch blade which to me is better balanced. http://www.amazon.ca/Calphalon-Contemporary-7-Inch-Santoku-Knife/dp/B000V6IED8/ref=pd_sim_k_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=1J50881YAWQ65A9A3DFY

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Western Knives, Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great tool for Western knives. I have pretty much retired my wet stone and use this to quickly sharpen my western knifes. Remember this is not for Japanese blades that are different angles.

Well balanced knife very sharp and great cutting. Just remember it is a Japanese knife and the blade angle is different from a western knife so either sharpen it wit a wet stone, or have it done professionally.
