Choosing the Best Kitchen Knife Set to Meet Your Cooking Needs Whether you are a serious cook or just a simple foodie who likes to make everything taste good, choosing the best kitchen utility knife set is very important. A kitchen knife set consists of a large kitchen knife and several smaller kitchen knives that are used for different tasks. It is common for every kitchen to have at least one knife that is specifically used for slicing, paring, filleting, and chopping. It is also common to have several other types of knives such as a paring knife, a fillet knife, cleavers, a boning knife, a shredder, a steak knife, a bread knife, a carving knife, and more. All kitchen knife sets come in a variety of different styles and designs, so it is important to choose one that will be suitable for the tasks you will be using it for.
Choose a Good Grip Choosing a good grip is critical to proper knife use because it provides more control when using the knife. The best grips are made from high carbon stainless steel with a textured pattern. The best grip should fit your hand comfortably and have enough give so that you can pinch it between your fingers and hold the knife with a firm grasp. The better gripes usually come with a rubberized side or finger guard to prevent your fingers from slipping off. In addition, all good knife sets have a good grip built into the blade itself so that even if you do accidentally slice something the blade is still sharp.
Types of Kitchen Knife Set: Choosing a kitchen knife set that has the right type of knife for the task you will be using it for is important. For example, if you are going to chop onions then a serrated knife would be a better option than a dull chef's knife. You could also choose a folding knife if you plan on chopping food frequently and storing your knives in the kitchen drawer. A folding knife with a good quality blade will also be better if you decide to go with a decorative blade such as a satin nickel or a steel flat-blade. A good tip to remember is to always purchase a knife that is both durable and practical, but one that also has a design or style that you like.
