    OXO Chef's Knife - no longer available on Amazon....

    Hi folks, I purchased an OXO Chef's knife a couple of years ago and have been very pleased with it. I was not familiar with the brand but the free site recommended it. By the way, I could not find any knife recommendations on the free site today??

    Anyway, I want to buy one for a friend but Amazon indicates it is unavailable. Does anyone have a recommendation for a knife similar to the Oxo brand? No pitting, no discoloration, looks almost brand new and performs so well.

    Victoranox! Same peeps who give you the Swiss Army knife. Very highly rated by America’s Test Kitchen. Good stuff!

      True, and the price is right.
      They work fine and last a long time.

      What he said

    Kind of on topic, after seeing a recent post about how to learn knife skills, I watched a few videos. I didn't know there
    was such a thing as a sausage, or apparently also called a tomato, knife. Trying to decide if I need one, or maybe it
    is kind of an MCS type thing.

      Avoid gimmicky knives. Any very sharp knife will slice things like tomatoes just fine. There ARE of course, specialty knives but unless you do that thing (breaking down fish or poultry, etc) you can just use good basic knives.

    Dexter -Russell is also a good option

      Second this. Relatively inexpensive, good quality and the kicker for me is the handle. GREAT for people w big beefy mitts like me.

      Same here. I love my DR knives....probably the best value in knives out there. If they are good enough for Aaron Franklin, they're good enough for me.

    Oxo makes a lot of great kitchen stuff. I didn't know they made knives. But their web site says they are out of stock, so not surprising you can't find them on Amazon.

    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
