i've been cooking for a while, but have decided that 2012 is the year where i finally get all the good stuff i've been wanting for ages. first things first: knives. i have one good paring knife (wusthof), but what else is indispensable? next on the list is a 7 or 8 inch chef's knife... what beyond that?
perhaps more importantly, i'm looking for storage solutions. i have zero drawer space, and hardly any counter space. to complicate things further, i rent, so i don't want to get those super nice magnet bars unless they're easily moveable and won't ruin the wall.
a friend told me about some magical magnetic knife stand, but i haven't seen this thing. what about the bodum ones with the sticks where you can put whatever knife in there - are those any good?
thanks in advance!
