Sharpening Your Kitchen Knives in Our Wildwood, Florida Apartments

The kitchens at PepperTree Apartment Homes are very spacious and have plenty of room for you to prepare delicious meals. Something you might like to place in your full kitchen at PepperTree to make it feel like more like a gourmet cooking area is a set of nice kitchen knives. However, even the best sets of knives will eventually become dull and need to be sharpened. It is advisable to sharpen your knives monthly or even more frequently if you use them heavily. Remember that sharper knives are typically safer to use because they’re able to do the job of cutting – instead of slipping off the item you’re trying to slice and possibly injuring you.

Try sharpening your kitchen knives in our Wildwood, Florida apartments by:

  • Purchasing a whetstone or honing steel. These are fairly inexpensive and can be found at most grocery stores and home goods stores.

  • Running one side of the knife’s blade against the whetstone or honing steel at a slight angle several times to form a burr, or microscopic raised lip of metal on the blade. You can’t see the burr, but you will be able to feel it

  • Run the other side of the blade against the whetstone or honing steel at a slight angle several times. The burr should now be gone, but the knife should be significantly sharper.

  • Always remember to run the blade of the knife away from your body to prevent injuries

Now that you know how to sharpen your kitchen cutlery you’ll always be ready to prepare some good food. To learn more about our Wildwood, Florida apartments, please fill out the form on our Contact Us page or stop by our leasing office today for a personal tour.
