Best Bargain Buy: Zyliss Control

The Zyliss Control 8″ Chef’s Knife is a real bargain. Don’t be fooled by the $30 price point: it easily handles every cutting chore from chopping garlic to quartering a chicken. Regardless of how you hold a knife, you’ll find the Zyliss ergonomic. The handle offers a nonslip grip, so if you prefer to pinch grip at the rear of the blade (a technique favored by the pros), you’ll find the blade rounded and comfy where you place your fingers. Unlike most, this knife is dishwasher-safe.
