Always Put This Under Your Cutting Board Before You Chop

Don't worry: You probably already have it in your kitchen!

If you've ever watched Top Chef
, you know how quickly cooks can work a knife. It probably leads to
thoughts like "watch your fingers!" and "I can't watch!" But,
apparently, these professionals have a few tricks up their sleeves to keep their digits safe.

For
instance, to keep boards from budging, wet a paper towel and lay it
under the board. Since most people already have this in their kitchen,
it's a quick fix. Sharon Franke, director of the Kitchen Appliances and
Technology Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute, also recommends sticking with wood and plastic boards, because other materials (like glass or bamboo) are harder and more likely to move on your counter.

Another
way to ensure your safety? Make sure your knife is sharp. Dull blades
make cutting more difficult and more dangerous, since they can slip
sideways and cut your finger. Once you've got your cutting board and
knife squared away, you can cut up your veggie spread without fear —
just don't race through it like Emeril (for the sake of your fingers).
