Dull knives in the kitchen? A sharp knife is a must-have for a home cook, but what do you do if you don’t have a knife sharpener and don’t want the hassle of taking your knives to a store to get sharpened? Look for a terra cotta pot! Turn over a clean terra cotta pot and run the blade across it several times. A few swipes against the pot will sharpen a dull blade. Wipe the blade with a damp towel and test it by slicing an item like a tomato to make sure it’s perfectly sharp.
