Yeah. This happened. I basically have one good knife for chopping things...and several not so good ones that I try not to use. The good one was in the wash, so this came out. I was cutting meat. Not tough meat mind you, just meat. Beef, actually. And, the knife broke. I was unaware that the tang didn't extend the full length of the handle. That's why it broke. :( I need some better knives for my kitchen. But not ceramic ones. I nearly lost part of my finger with one...a large part, which was sewn back on and grows funny now, but isn't noticeable to others. So no ceramic knives. Maybe one day I'll win those beauties that The Pioneer Woman gives away ever so often.
Also...does anyone else have this problem with their smooth surface electric cooktop? Do you see all that mess on there? I can scrub for hours and it still looks like that. Any thoughts or advice?
