I’m Lovin’ It : My 8″ Henckels Chef’s Knife

 

Henckels Pro Chef Knife Giveawaysource

If you were around for the holidays, you may remember my Holiday Wish List, and how I said I thought a Henckels Chef’s Knife could possibly change my life.

Well fortunately for me, Santa came thru and I was right! My new knife has changed my life in the kitchen!!

I have never owned a good knife, so considering that a good chef’s knife is probably the single most important and useful tool in a kitchen, it’s no wonder it’s made such an impact on me!

Now, I’ll be the first to tell you I don’t know much about knives but I do know I’m in LOVE with the 8″ Henckels Chef’s Knife I’m now using and I’m blown away at the difference a good knife can make.

I wish I could make sure you ALL had a good knife in your kitchen……….but I can make sure ONE of you has one!

I’m going to send a Henckels 8″ Chef knife (similar to the one I have) to one lucky TidyMom reader!

    I love a good knife…unfortunately, I don’t have a great one right now, this would be perfect!

    The best knife I have ever owned is a Top Chef Knife

    We have two henkels…but not this chef knife. Would make a wonderful addition

    I do not own a good knife, this has been on my wish list but some lecreuset and baby #3 won out first! P.S. my husband would probably love this more than me even though I am the one who cooks primarily!

    My husband and I were just talking about how pathetic our knives are! We just don’t have any decent knives and would LOVE to win this one!

    Each Christmas I’ve been getting a knife — santoku, large chef’s, small paring — I would love this size of chef’s knife!!

    I’d definitely love to win this knife! A good knife is imperative in a working kitchen! My favorite knife at the time is a big Tramontina. My second favorite is my wee little paring knife from a little Amish store in Bart, Pennsylvania.

    We looked at some great knives before Christmas, but with four of our give children in braces :-) the knives will have to wait.

    I have never owned a good knife either…I just use the knife set we got as a wedding gift 15 years ago! I would love to win this chef’s knife!

    HI!

    Believe it or not I do not own a really good knife. I’ve always gone to Target or W-mart and bought a block of knives. But after spending some time in my daughter-in-laws kitchen using her Henckles set I’ve really come to love these knives. The wait and balance of them made chopping and dicing so much easier and quite frankly even more fun. I would love to have just one of my own Henckles to use in my home.

    Thank you for running such a wonderful contest. 8D

    I have a henckels serrated knife that I love for slicing tomatoes. I bet the chef’s knife it to die for. :)

    I have decent knives but no seriously favorite ones. I have been looking to buy a couple nice ones so this is perfect timing!

    I own Big Lots specials so no, I do not own a good knife. I really need to win this one. My current ones can’t even cut through a watermelon and that is just a darn shame.

    Love my Victorinox Forschner 8″ Chef’s Knife. A good chopping knife in the kitchen is essential!

    The hubby and I own a set from Chicago Cutlery and we love them. Great price and they cut great. Would like to get a set of real nice chef knives though.

    A good knife? I’m not even sure what that is!! But I hope I can find out! Mine are about the same as my butter knives, only with a pointed end.

    I own one awesome knife at the moment. It’s a Guy Fieri knife the lil’ guy. I could definitely use a larger knife!

    I own a Henckles Knife (although I doubt this nice!), and it is my favorite!! We had an older one, and it got to the point it wouldn’t sharpen anymore, so we got another one for Christmas one year. It is the only knife we use, so it would be great to have another one so we’re not constantly washing it during dinner prep!!

    I do have some good knives, but I am not in love with them. If I win, I am
    surely to fall in love like you did.

    I thought I had a GREAT knife. My pampered chef knife, that had a sharpening sleeve. Well. Then I got a Better Homes and Garden knife…and I sliced my hand open. I wasn’t prepared for the sharpness of it. Now I am not even sure what I would do with a GREAT knife! LOL! I need something to help with chicken bones AND slice tomatoes :) 5 Children and ONE mom :)

    My parents got a set of JA Henckels knives as a wedding gift 23 years ago and they still work wonder. I am now at the stage of building my kitchen inventory before moving to my first apartment and I know I will not regret buying quality knives of my own.

    I have an OK knife. Part of an set from Sam’s we got for our wedding almost 3 years ago. The 5″ was my favorite for a year and a half, but then I discovered the 7″! LOVE IT! It also loves my fingers (not so great). I’m very slowly looking into upgrading. I could use a little ‘world change’!

    I would love to win a new knife. The last nice ones I had were a wedding gift 27 years ago. I could definitely put that to good use with all the cooking I do!

    I absolutely love to cook, and I am in desperated need of a good knife! I have knives, I just have to keep sharpening, so that they work well enough. My 4 year old son cooks with me alot, and I have been teaching him how to dice (safely) and he has taken quite the interest in cooking as well, as you can see on my blog. I would love to have this knife to properly teach him good techniques! Pick us, Pick us!!

    I have one good knife that I just bought through Pampered Chef. Other than that, the rest of my knives are dull and bent…lol.

    I have a suduko from Walmart. It is not a high quality knife but is such an improvment over what I used to have. I love it and use it to cut most everything.

    Just use paring knifes right now. It would be awesome to have a knife like this.

    No one should skimp on price of a few good knives! Very important.
    U don’t neccesarily need a full set. But a good chef knife, parer & I have a good boning knife.
    I have Henkels steak knives. They r amazing! :)

    I am a HUGE cook in the kitchen at home, and depserately need a chef knife! I think it would do me wonders in the kitchen not to mention I would use it on a daily basis! Thank you so much for having this contest!

    Most of my knives are from over 40 years and not really great ones. Would love to win one,thanks for the chance!

    No good knives in my kitchen. I’ve longed for one for a while now but I just can’t part with the money it takes to get one.

    I do have a pretty good Chicago Cutlery Knife I got when we got married, but it has disappeared at the bottom of the dish drain board a few times and gotten some rust spots. A new knife would be awesome!
