What does summer taste like to you? If it involves juicy tomatoes, steamed mussels with crusty bread, or strawberry shortcake served on fresh biscuits, there’s one essential piece of equipment you’ll need: a serrated bread knife. Anyone who’s ever squashed a perfectly ripe tomato or flattened a baguette knows that it’s not only incredibly frustrating to use a dull bread knife, but in fact, it can be pretty dangerous too! So here’s the good news: Mercer Culinary’s 10-inch bread knife, aka our Best List topper, is on sale for just $14.99 on Amazon right now. Yes, that’s almost 63 percent off an already affordably priced knife that Kitchn editors are obsessed with!

And we’re not the only ones that love this sleek and easy-to-grip knife. In fact, it’s also the top pick for the editors at Cook’s Illustrated, who called it a “standout” with the fewest, widest and deepest scalloped teeth compared to other knives they tested. Additionally, the blade length is long enough to make clean, crumbless slices from big bread loaves, but the knife is also lightweight, making it easy to control when cutting soft items like juicy fruits or delicate flaky pastries like croissants.

Once your knife arrives, you’ll be well equipped to slice through cut even slices of pineapple to char on the grill and create beautiful rings of tomatoes for Caprese salad or burgers. Not to mention, it’s perfect for splitting buns for hoagies and cutting up summer sheet cakes into perfect, intact squares. Once summer wraps up, your knife can slice through homemade sourdough loaves to accompany hearty soup dinners and banana bread like a total pro!

Can you tell we love this thing? Better get yours before this deal ends!
