Every cook has a time when he or she has just been boiling – and I’m not talking about water. I’m talking about the times when your brownies have overcooked, your veggies just won’t turn out quite right and your roast won’t hit its mark on the meat thermometer even after an extra hour in the oven, on top of which your microwave won’t work, the kitchen mysteriously smells like burning and hungry relatives are grumbling impatiently in the next room. It’s enough to make you want to take your kitchen knife and throw it right into the wall (since, you know, it would be a bad idea to actually aim for any of the complaining relatives).
Now, I like my knives far to much to subject them to that kind of treatment, which is why I absolutely love the idea of these Knife Hooks (click on “home accessories” to find the product listing). They’re made of stainless steel and are sized just like a real knife, or at least like the part that is visible. There is no blade; they attach to the wall like traditional wall hooks. The knives look great once they’re up and, aside from being useful in general, they’re pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face no matter how frustrated you are in the kitchen.
