Have you ever experienced even small injury in the kitchen when you work with a sharp knife? If you say, ‘No’ it is quite strange. Because, most of us face these type of small or even worst injuries in the kitchen while working with sharp knives.
It is same for me even in my Sri Lankan kitchen. Usually we slice most of the vegetables. Especially when we cook green leaves, one of the secret for a delicious green dish is thinly sliced greens. Not only the main ingredients, even onions, green chilly or whatever most ingredients are sliced thinly to get the most taste out of the dish. Then the chances are more for injuries if the knife is so sharp.
Recently I found a solution. Actually I received some samples of NoCry Cut Resistant Gloves and this post is about my experience with these gloves.

NoCry Cut Resistant Gloves Review
Now, here comes my review. Actually at first, I was thinking of the feeling of the gloves on my hands. Most of the times I don’t use gloves when I work in the kitchen.
