    NOTE: I accidentally said olive oil during the cast iron seasoning - I meant vegetable! Only use neutral-flavor oils like vegetable, canola, sunflower, or shortening!

      The most important aspect is that it be a high smoke point oil. I have been using walnut oil, which works well and isn't too expensive for a smallish bottle that has lasted me for nearly 2 years.

    PLEASE don't use a carbide sharpener like that one. You can see the steel being peeled off the knife. Use a stone. It's harder, but your knives will last so much longer.

    Babish please be careful with your fingers when you are slicing like that. You should always tuck your fingertips and put your second knuckles toward the side of the knife. You don't want to cut off your fingertip or your nail. Thanks for the vids!

  • Wes Glover

    The whet in Whetstone means “to sharpen”. I would also suggest once you’re on the finest part of the stone to alternate sides with every stroke to ensure even sharpening. Some whetstones use sharpening oils instead of water. I would just follow the instructions that came with it. Most whetstones also need cleaning to remove the metal shavings that will rust and clog the pores of the stone. You can usually wash in soapy water and scrub with a wire brush, but follow the included instructions if they say something else.
    Also, Unless your blades are in absolute abysmal shape, you probably shouldn’t use the coarse side of the pull through sharpener, or any sharpener for that matter, as it will remove way too much material from the blade and you’ll have to replace your knives too often.

Can you or your loyal followers help me out?

    I tried reseasoning my cast iron pan today using this video for guidance. It's worth noting that you should only use, like, a teaspoon of oil, because I definitely rubbed it down with too much oil the first time. What I didn't know was that this would create a sticky film. Like, fly-paper sticky. I had to scrub it all off and do it again using quite a bit less oil. Worked like a charm.
    The moral of the story is, "a generous coating of oil" means: be less generous than you might think.
    PS - I also sharpened one of my knives using your whetstone method. I had to give it much more than 10 passes on the coarser grit side, since this was long overdue, but it worked great!

    Don't get a whetstone with such a span! 1000 on one side is great when you want a good base for a knife that isn't in too terrible a shape to begin with, but don't jump directly to 6000.. Just get 1000-3000 you seriously won't feel the difference after using the honing rod and you'll have much easier time getting the knife good and sharp!
    Also: use the honing rod after each time you clean the knife and then wipe off the knife with a dry or damp cloth, this way you'll always have a great knife, and you prolong the "lifespan" of the sharpness.

    was it a mistake when u said flipping to 1000 which is fine side. when its actually the coarser side of the two when u originally introduced the whetstone as 1000/6000. error must be brought to awareness!

    Remember when Babish's whole thing was not being a gimmicky RUclipr? Like, he literally said that he found the amount of extra fluff in a lot of RUclip cooking videos to be annoying? And his whole thing was being simple and straight to the point with a dry sense of humour? Or when his videos actually seemed to have a lot of research put into them? Yeah, that was pretty cool.

  • Xnerdz
    Xnerdz 4 месяца назад

    3:46 I think you misspoke here, you meant the 6000 grit. The higher the grit, the finer it is and on that stone, the 1000 grit is on the brown side, the 6000 grit on the white side. Also, you should definitively wash the stone from time to time, because the dust created by the grind is uneven and it will elevate the knife undesirably at certain points of the sharpening.

    About cast iron seasoning: companies like Lodge sell products they call "seasoning spray". DON'T BUY THEM! If you read the fine print, it's just plain old canola oil in a spraycan, except it's sold for $15-20 dollars a can. You can just buy a regular bottle of oil for a fraction of the price.

    "Whetstones are called whetstones because, well, you gotta get 'em wet."
    No. Just. No. To whet means to sharpen the blade of a tool or weapon.

    Please, it's "whet" not "wet". "Whet" means to sharpen; "wet" means moistened with water. You do, in fact, wet some whetstones; but you also oil some whetstones, and some whetstones are used dry. The "whet" and "wet" do not share etymology. You likewise "whet someone's appetite" and do not "wet someone's appetite".

    THANK YOU! That honing rod is NOT a knife sharpener! I asked for a knife sharpener for Christmas one year and got a honing rod instead. I try to tell everyone that they're not one in the same and no one believes me haha. Also, I thought you were supposed to use oil to sharpen the knife? Maybe either oil or water both work well? I haven't tried using water, but it does look like it works.
