Wusthof Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku : Similar to a butcher knife, the Japanese-style santoku knife is a multipurpose gem for slicing, cubing, or dicing. Available in 5" or 7", the distinctive hollow-ground edge that alternates scallops on both sides of the blade, and yields a smooth, clean cut. About Wusthof Classic: Precision-forged blades of Wusthof's own high-carbon, stain-resistant steel alloy, for a lasting edge that is easy to resharpen. Distinctive bolster prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade. Handle is a virtually indestructible composite, buffed by hand for a smooth finish and triple-riveted to the full tang for optimum strength and balance. Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
I have a friend who loves to entertain but does not cook. Whe she hots a party I do the cooking at her house, and since her knives are substandard I have been hauling my knives to her house for years. So for Christmas this year, Santa brought my friend this wonderful set of Santoku knives. She loves them and so do I, and my knives get to stay home in my kitchen! Now if only I can teach her how to properly care for these babies....

I received a Zojirushi breadmaker for Christmas. Since there are only 2 of us, I received a mini. I have made my own bread periodically for most of my life. I was skeptical at first and wondered if I really needed another big kitchen appliance. Three weeks later I am a convert! It uses either bread mixes or you can make your own dough (with a couple of minor conversions for the smaller size). The loaves are just the right size for the two of us. And being able to set it in the morning and come home to the scent of freshly baked bread is heavenly! I love it!
