As far as bell peppers, I slice off the chunk I'm going to eat in the salad. Cutting more pieces causes it to age faster. I do cucumber the same way, lop off a piece and the skin.

Bell pepper slices freeze well. We cut 'em all up and put them in zip-lock snack bags in the freezer door shelf. Doesn't get much easier than that. (That's for cooking purposes, not raw eating....haven't tried them raw)

I only eat them raw, like all veggies, unless I do the occasional stir fry.

Funny enough my knife was pretty damn dull and it shows.

But this is my knife:

You Iron Chef'd that ****, bro.

I came for the initial seed removal method, I stayed for the cut varieties.
10/10, would pepper again.

Been 14 years since I worked in a kitchen, I think I've ordered more pizzas than I have cut peppers since.

Re: What Brand Kitchen Knives Do You Foodies Use?


I did 5 in the kitchen but nobody ever taught me how to do anything. Like, anything. One time a guy told me to put some bleach into the ammonia in the mop bucket to make it extra strong so the floor gets cleaner. He said it with such confidence that I'm positive he'd done it before.
Didn't learn to actually hold a knife properly or use it properly until I was older and had to fend for myself. I'm hopeful that by the time my kid is like 10 I'll know enough to convince him that I was always that good, he just wasn't old enough to appreciate it.

This is my go-to. It was a gift from BRG a number of years ago.

Liked it so much I bought a paring knife...same company.

If I'm cutting up a chicken or something that requires less attention to detail, I use these. Cheap knives but they hold a great edge.
