What is the difference between a boning knife and a fillet knife?
Boning knives are commonly used specifically for removing bones from meat while fillet knives are commonly used for removing bones and skin from meat, especially fish. There is some overlap as boning knives can be used for filleting and there are some all-purpose, boning/fillet knives.
As Father’s Day approaches so does Summer. It really is time to get serious about locking in on a gift for Dad. For me Father’s Day and Summer are synonymous. When I was a kid and even when my father was a kid the place to be was a barbecue. I have lots of memories of my father working on a barbecue. I was always worried he would over cook my food as I prefer things medium-rare. More often than not,even after numerous reminders, it arrived at the table well done. Today, I am proud to say my dad can actually deliver on a medium-rare request! If you are struggling on what to get Dad for Father’s Day, here a few suggestions from us at MetroKitchen.

Dear MetroKitchen: I have these weird spots on my stainless steel cookware that look like water spots. I thought stainless steel was supposed to be just that, stainless. What can I do to get rid of these spots?
A lot of people out there love summer. People like me. I love warm to hot climates. Your wardrobe is minimal, it feels good outside and feels better outside at night. Lots of friends and family events are always going on. Plus the beaches are always welcoming if you can get to one. The subtle breezes, lemonade, kids riding their bikes outside and sounds of neighborhood dogs barking are all part of a good summer time experience. The thing that makes summer also enjoyable is that it’s peak grilling season. If you live in the south, we call that cook-outs. Sure grilling can be done when it’s cold, but who wants grilled food that will get cold in 2 minutes. There’s something about grilled food that is fascinating. Here is an example, grilled veggies taste better to me than other methods of cooking veggies. That’s just my opinion. Well, since grilling is so awesome and for those of us that live in places where it gets cold, wouldn’t it be great to bring the grilling indoors without the smoke?
