A kitchen knife is a knife specifically designed to prepare food. How do you choose the best knives for your kitchen needs? When you’re an inexperienced cook, the hardest part about figuring out how to choose the best knife, is where to begin. A good set of kitchen knives can be used forever, and even handed down from generation to generation. With that in mind, let’s review some of the basic considerations while shopping.

Can be made from a variety of materials

Kitchen knives can be made from a messer variety of materials. The most common materials are stainless steel, high carbon stainless steel, carbon steel, titanium, ceramic and plastic. When buying knives, you can either purchase them individually, or in a set. Therefore, if you’re starting from scratch, it may be an option for you to buy individual knives to test the different brands and blades that are available to you. It is cheaper to buy one knife at a time, rather than buying a set. Also, you can be sure to be 100% satisfied with your new set, if you’ve used an individual knife from that manufacturer before. However, the benefit of buying a set of knives makes each individual knife cheaper. Knives are also constructed in a variety of ways, so make sure you find a durable knife for your needs. Blades can be manufactured by either being forged or stamped.

A variety of knives include a chefs knife, meat knife, paring knife, bread knife and utility knife. Be sure to find a knife that feels good in your hand, and produces the cut you are looking for. Also, it is very important to keep your knives sharp and clean. Keeping a sharp knife will not only make your life easier, but it will reduce the risk of accidents.

Knives – The Most Important Piece of Cooking Equipment in Your Kitchen

When buying knives & other equipment, really consider what you need before you buy it. When you go into shops you often see comprehensive knife sets with different knives to do every job you can possibly think of. Having worked in the professional cooking trade for over 20yrs, I have come to notice that all the chefs generally only use 3 or perhaps 4 knives to do all the jobs. Therefore you are far better off spending your money on a limited range of knives, but buy good quality . A good quality knife will hold its sharpness (edge) for much longer and will be easier to re-sharpen. When you buy knives the most important thing you should consider is “Is it comfortable to use?”

The most important item on the subject of knives is the best way to keep them sharp. This is to constantly sharpen them with a good steel, don’t let them get too blunt because once they have you will need to go to an ironmonger or your butcher to have them re-ground. After this all you need to do is maintain the edge on your knives by using a steel. You can get two types of steel these days, traditional round steel or the more modern flat diamond tip steel. Of the two we recommend the diamond tip steel, they are far more effective. Keeping your knife sharp is essential for both safety and ease of use. Blunt knives are dangerous due to the fact that you have to use extra pressure when cutting thus increasing the chance of the knife slipping, causing you to possibly cut yourself.

Will always find a steel close to each chef

Repeat this process on the other side and keep repeating this process until multitool your knife feels sharp. Using this technique is far more accurate than doing it in the air, and also a lot safer. You would never get one chef sharpening another chef’s knives.
