Just about every professional chef we know puts high-quality knives at the top of their “must-have” equipment list. And with good reason: So much of food prep is about chopping, slicing, and dicing. The same is true for home cooks, but unfortunately, professional-grade knives are usually way out of our budgets. That’s why we’re extra excited about Zwilling’s Black Friday sale — the brand’s already affordable knives are on sale for some truly incredible prices.
