As you've probably gathered by now, I love to cook. I am also addicted to Chinese food, which means I love to make chicken stir fry, which means I have to cut chicken a lot. I do not particularly like cutting up raw chicken, and I am especially not fond of cutting up raw chicken with dull, weak knives. My friend Christina over at Mom Knows Best 2 understands my dilemma; she is very picky when it comes to her kitchen knives. Christina says that she has tried a lot of knives, and that the Calpahalon classic knife block set with self sharpen technology is one of the best. Below is what she has to say about them:
When preparing food, I can't stand it when I can't cut through the food without any problems. With Calphalon's new knife block set with sharpeners helps keep the knives sharp, every time you put a knife in or take it out, you are sharpening a knife.

These in block sharpeners ensure that knives are effortlessly sharpened every time they are removed or replaced, or remember to sharpen before you start. With normal use, Calphalon SharpIN knives stay sharp for a lifetime.
