Suggest using a ceramic nice to cut the lettuce as it prevents browning or discolouring of the lettuce cut edges. You can use a plastic knife but I don't like them-as I find them awkward. Kyocera Ceramic knives are excellent!

That's interesting. I didn't know that's the way to core lettuce. I used to just cut the ends off -- that'll help with waste management and food cost.

The ceramic knives are available at better stores. However, they are now being made so perhaps such as Walmart will have a version in time. I especially love the ceramic peeler. It saves it's cost quickly as there is no waste it glides and just takes a thin peel off. They are fragil knives so if you drop them or chop a bone they will break, but they are so amazingly sharp and give easy clean cuts! I have a chef's knife and a paring knife and I use them several times a day in prepping foods.

Left out, sorry they are made in Japan, but now there is a version being made in China so perhaps Walmart will carry them in time. I would guess Costco is more likely to carry them as they are top quality. I am NOT a Walmart shopper as I would rather pay more for lasting quality than throw away kitchen items for sure. I do like some things at Target-not Walmart at all sorry. Only things I'd buy at a Walmart would be light bulbs as they have a great selection, and also some garden dept items.
