Gifts for the cook should never include a knife set, so says Alton Brown, host of the Food Network's Good Eats for 14 seasons. In fact, he writes you only need three knives, a chef’s knife in the 8-10″ range, a large serrated bread knife and a utility blade in the 4-6″ range. Also get a decent pair of kitchen shears, the kind that come apart into two pieces and remember to never cut with a knife what you can cut with scissors. As for a cutting board, ditch the plastic and bamboo ones. Instead opt for a heavy board made of maple. He also suggest keeping knives out of the dishwasher and to use a magnetic strip to store the blades. Alton Brown announced that he back after a six year absence with a new series of Food network shows called, Return of the Eats, and it will air on the Food Network starting in 2018.
