    My MIL asked me the other day if PC makes plastic knives that would work to shred lettuce but keep it from turning brown. I thought of the color coated knives but really don't know much about them. I barely know what their purpose is in general, let alone if they'd work for this. What is the coating, what's the purpose of having color coated knives, and would it work for keeping lettuce from turning brown?

    We used to have them--we had a pink one for HWC a couple of years ago and a green one that is now discontinued. They worked great!

    I have ordered several nylon knives from the outlet and have given many away as well. I love the nylon knife because I used to buy only the salad mix in the bag because I hated cutting up a head of lettuce. The nylon knife is perfect and cheap!

    The test kitchens told us that that is a wives tale. Lettice that is used right away will not turn brown. Look at the lettuce in the fridge that you tore (no knife) - it's turning brown too.

    Um...yes, it turns brown after a while, but not immediately! Besides, if the test kitchen says it's a wives tale, why did they make the plastic knives for it? I'll direct her to the outlet, thanks!

    The knives were promoted as safe for non-stick cookware.

    Thanks for noticing. Not really gone, not really back. Turns out I had a lifetime membership. I've been concentrating on other things but I check back every so often.
