Great Course!

I've learned a great deal about choosing and using knives from this course. I've also learned some great tricks in the kitchen that I did not know before. Great Instructor!

I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of information and techniques in this free mini class. Brendan is an excellent instructor and explained everything in detail - he really demystified many of the burning questions I had when it came to knives. And who knew there were easier ways to cutting so many things you might usually be struggling with! This class will really change the way you do things in your kitchen. Thank you Craftsy!

Terrific Class!

I learned SO much! In addition to the basic knife skills (which actually aren't all that basic - I learned that most of us use our knives incorrectly), there were a lot of cool techniques for specific foods. Brendan is an excellent instructor - precise, organized and methodical but quick. He packed a lot into the class. The videography was also very good - it was easy to see exactly what he was doing. Now I'm going to go get myself some decent knives!

All Classes

Excellent classes from paying to the free ones. You are learning only from the experts. Love the videos you can play them again and again. I love my classes in knitting, crocheting, baking and sewing. Keep up the good work craftsy.
