Buy a paring knife. Whatever kind you want, it doesn’t matter. Pare things with it. It will make peeling and cutting easier for you.
A Good Chef’s Knife
You want one with a sharp, strong blade, which can come one of two ways: You can pay a large amount of money for a high-carbon stainless steel blade, and have that knife forever, or you can pay a moderate amount of money for a ceramic blade, and have to replace it frequently.
A Good Can Opener
This may sound silly, but think of how many times you cook and your can opener has warped. Stay on top of that and you will have food for a while. Even keep a good can opener at your desk. You will be the most popular person at work!
