Time’s up!

The winners of the Wusthof 7″ Santoku knives are:

#1 Sara Fehling
#90 Sarah N
#394 Pam
#1378 Kevin
#2219 Rebecca

Congrats you guys! I’m so excited for you. That was a fun giveaway — how often does the first comment win?? Plus we have a “Kevin” winner. How fun. I’ve sent y’all an email!

Hi guys, I’ve got a fun Tuesday giveaway to share today. This Wusthof 7″ Santoku is my favorite knife ever. It literally changed my cooking life. Before I got this knife I avoided recipes that required a lot of cutting, especially cutting chicken. Talk about limiting my options. But what a difference a good knife makes! I feel so much more confident to try new recipes with this thing, because it makes cutting so quick and effortless. Prepping for recipes is a breeze.

I love this knife and I want you guys to have it too. I’ve got five (5) of them to give away today, courtesy of Wusthof.

Wusthof 7″ Santoku Knife Giveaway

Five (5) Kevin & Amanda readers will win a Wusthof 7″ Santoku knife, courtesy of Wusthof.

To be entered to win, just answer the following question in the comments section of this post: What one thing do you chop the most?

Contest ends Sunday at 8 pm CST. One entry per person, please. Winners will be chosen by Random.org and notified by email.

Check out Wusthof on Facebook.

Good luck!!

Vegetables for stir fry, spring rolls, etc. I cook a lot of Asian food and my puny little knife (which is my best) can’t handle it. I’ve been wanting a real knife for a long time. I hope I win!

Erin @ Brownie Bites August 16, 2011 at 7:29 am

You are just all over the giveaways lately! :) I chop green onions and celery more than anything else!

303
Jan August 16, 2011 at 7:31 am

veggies for stir fry, loads and loads.

304
Gretchen Alice August 16, 2011 at 7:31 am

Probably onions…and then I fight my way through lots of tears.

305
tabatha August 16, 2011 at 7:31 am

I chop lots of onions! I would LOVE to have one of these knives!

306
Carrie August 16, 2011 at 7:32 am

Onions, chicken and broccoli!

307
Dana August 16, 2011 at 7:32 am

I am always chopping onions! It’s not my favorite thing to chop, but after I finally learned how to do it the right way, it’s not quite as daunting. :)

308
Suzy August 16, 2011 at 7:32 am

I think chopping the crust off sandwiches has to top the list, though onions and apples are a close second…

309
Julie Oliver August 16, 2011 at 7:33 am

Onions and potatoes

310
bonnie August 16, 2011 at 7:33 am

It’s a toss up (or a chop up) between onions and potatoes for me … that’s my Irish heritage showing … with veggies and garlic following closely behind.

311
stephanie August 16, 2011 at 7:34 am

Pepper-red, yellow, and orange.

312
Kay August 16, 2011 at 7:34 am

Onions Onions and more Onions. I use onions in just about everything I cook; and I rather chop them by hand then use any type of chopper. :)

313
Angie August 16, 2011 at 7:34 am

Hmmm, it’s a toss up between onions and red peppers – onions at dinner, red peppers at lunch. Love Wusthof!

314
Alison August 16, 2011 at 7:34 am

The one thing I chop the most is apples! We love apples in our house. We pick them I chop them up into thin slices, then we eat them! So delicious!!

315
Amanda Mac August 16, 2011 at 7:34 am

Add me to the onion brigade. :) Although, now that I think about it, I am cutting up limes at least twice a day. . .

316
Becky August 16, 2011 at 7:35 am

I cut up chicken all the time, but I don’t have any good knives to make it easy. I hope I win! I also love to make fresh salsa and I don’t have a food processor, so I chop everything by hand.

317
Taren August 16, 2011 at 7:36 am

What don’t I chop? I’m a mom of 4 under 7 years old. So I chopped everything from apples to onions, meats, veggies & fruits!

318
Emilie August 16, 2011 at 7:36 am

Probably onions and garlic!

319
Kendall August 16, 2011 at 7:36 am

For me, it would have to be onions, though I hate doing it. Onions are the worst!

Thanks for the chance to win, Amanda! :)

320
Ashley W August 16, 2011 at 7:36 am

I chop onions the most of anything!

326
Kate August 16, 2011 at 7:38 am

Definitely onions, as I love them and include them in most every dish. I really need a new knife, so this would be great!

327
joyce August 16, 2011 at 7:38 am

Onions, onions, onions

328

Thanks, Amanda!

332
kates August 16, 2011 at 7:41 am

No dish is complete without a healthy dose of garlic. That followed by onions, ginger and cilantro would be my most frequently food chopped items.

333

334

340
Kelly Jo August 16, 2011 at 7:43 am

Definitely onions. If I win the awesome knife I may have to invest in those space goggles that keep you from crying while you chop! :)

341
Gale August 16, 2011 at 7:44 am

Onions…. seems like everyone has the same answer but I chop those about every other day!!!
A great knife would be awesome!!!

342
Heather G. August 16, 2011 at 7:44 am

I cut herbs, vegetables, and fruit the most. This knife looks really nice! Thanks for the giveaway!

343
Terri August 16, 2011 at 7:44 am

I’m sure I’m not alone here…ONIONS! It seems like most of my fav recipes have onions in them! Every time I’m chopping onions, I think of the scene in Julie&Julia when Julia Child is practicing her knife skills by chopping a mountain of onions.

344
Lois Hartwell August 16, 2011 at 7:44 am

I feel so unoriginal – since practically everyone else said the same thing – BUT it’s definitely onions!!

345
Kathy F August 16, 2011 at 7:45 am

I probably attempt to chop herbs the most, followed closely by onions. I see from the posts that that is a very popular item :) Thanks for all the neat giveaways!

346
Tammy August 16, 2011 at 7:45 am

352

353

Kelly August 16, 2011 at 7:48 am

I would say onions are things I chop the most.

356
Irene L. August 16, 2011 at 7:48 am

It’s a tie between garlic and onions. There are very few things that I make that don’t include those too little gems! Is there anything better than the smell of garlic and onion cooking in olive oil? I think not.

357
Diana Hammonds August 16, 2011 at 7:48 am

Without a doubt, I chop onions more than anything else. I would absolutely love to have a knife like this!

358
Amanda August 16, 2011 at 7:48 am

388
lisa August 16, 2011 at 7:57 am

salad stuff! i like to get the carrots really thin, almost shaved.

389
Angie August 16, 2011 at 7:58 am

Basil, cilantro and garlic….my favorites – and I’m always chopping them!

390
Donna G August 16, 2011 at 7:58 am

396

I chop all types of vegetables, and loads of chicken for my daughters, since that is their favorite meat!!!!! I would love to have this beauty to use in the kitchen!!!

Thanks.

398
Laura August 16, 2011 at 8:01 am

Walnuts…I love them toasted in salads and on pancakes.

399
Kaylene August 16, 2011 at 8:01 am

probably chicken, though my husband does that for me most of the time because I have a hard time handling raw chicken. Other than that, onions. So I get to be the cooking cry-baby ;)

400
Elaine August 16, 2011 at 8:02 am

Veggies for my salads!!
