Get chopping with a fine set of grown-up knives. If you don’t think you’ll use a full set, think about the meals you usually make. You may only need a paring knife, serrated knife and chef’s knife to get your kitchen started. Suggested brands are Henckels, Wusthof, Shun or Cutco. They’re a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. Toss in a quality wooden cutting board as well.
