    Please check my sentence

    Women know the kitchen better, so they can design it the best.

    Is the above sentence correct and any other way to write this?

    Yes, it is grammatically correct. You could also try this;

    "As women know kitchens better, they are (naturally) better at designing them".

    Re: Please check my sentence

    If you are going to say 'woman know kitchens better', then 'better than who?"

    If it is 'men', then when you shift to 'best', who is this third party that suddenly, in addition to 'men', they are also 'better than'?

    Thanks Harry and bhaisahab for your valuable suggestions. And Mr David the point you raised is also a valauble but then I think it is understandable from the sentence itself that I am comparing woman with others that is man, kindly correct me if I am wrong.

    No, I don't think that you are wrong, if we say "women know kitchens better" I would have thought that we are saying that they know kitchens better than anyone or anything, men and children being the obvious candidates.

    Perfectly understandable.
    that is why I raise my point: who is suddenly, other than men, the third party implied in 'best' :
    - of women and men, women are better than men
    and of women, men, and hermaphrodites, women are best.
