Safety First: Mastering Kitchen Knife Safety

Keep Your Blades Sharp

Dull blades are more likely to slide and cause an accident. Sharpen your knives on a regular basis to keep them sharp.

Use a Stable Cutting Board

Make sure your cutting board stays in place as you work. For increased stability, place a non-slip mat or a moist towel beneath it.

Use Proper Hand Placement

To protect your fingertips, use the "claw" grip. Curl your fingertips inside, guiding the blade with your knuckles.

Control Your Cutting Technique

Use a methodical and controlled cutting technique, avoiding hurry or undue force.
