Hang around chefs, or read profiles of them, long enough and eventually you'll hear one mention how much they love their Gray Kunz spoon. We couldn't believe how many chefs actually included this spoon in their list of favorite kitchen tools. A spoon? And a $10 one at that? What's the deal?

We love the look of knives hanging from wall-mounted magnetic knife strips. The knife strips clear up clutter from the counter and open up the space so it's free and clear for what we all love to do most — cook. Magnetic knife strips make really easy DIY projects but if you're looking to purchase one, we found five handmade strips from Etsy.
This was my first "nice" knife. Before it, I had only owned dull, cheap knife sets that were always such a frustration to use. When I received this one as a gift, it was quickly and effortlessly incorporated into most all of my food prep routines.
