- Dull knives require more passes through the food; more cuts means more chance for error.
- Dull knives have a higher chance of slipping.
How to tell if your knife requires sharpening:
- Find a food item with a smooth, slick surface such as a green apple or an onion with the peel attached.
- Bring the blade of the knife down in a smooth, gentle movement.
- If the knife rolls off, or you require pressure or sawing motion to pierce the apple or onion, your knife is too dull.
