Are you the person that grabs the first knife you come to in your home kitchen when prepping dinner? It’s okay if you said yes. Here’s a fun fact: most people have a favorite knife they always reach for no matter what they’re cutting or slicing. But did you know that the knife you use actually plays a big role in the cook time, the texture, and the flavor of your food? That’s because each knife is designed for a specific job.
With so many different knives to choose from, it can be a bit tricky for a home chef to know which one is the best tool for the job. Here’s some help.
Some knives are great multitaskers, like the utility knife. It’s perfect for slicing small shallots, vegetables and even trimming up your protein.
Paring knives are small but mighty, and their precision blade is perfect for peeling, slicing, segmenting, hulling, trimming, and cutting small fruits and vegetables.
If ever there was a go-to knife, which their actually is… it’s the chef’s knife. It chops, dices, and cuts just about every ingredient including fruits and veggies, meat, poultry, and fish. This could be your new favorite knife.
Without the right knife, you’ll end up squashing and tearing that nice warm loaf of homemade bread. Our offset bread knife keeps your hands clear of the board and a wide serrated edge slices smooth and clean without tearing or too many crumbs.
A great cut of steak deserves a beefy blade to slice right through it. Steak knives are usually serrated, and no hacking is needed, or shredding will happen, due to the grind of our steak knife edges, so you can spend more time savoring than cutting.
Are you a fresh fish lover? Or Do you fish? A good fillet knife has a flexible blade that easily removes skin from delicate fish and meat. The fillet knife is the perfect tool for fish and meat preparation.
