Kitchen knives are one investment that is used daily in the kitchen for cooking and that is why choosing the best quality that is strong,durable and easy to handle is an investment that i don’t mind making.In this article i will share the tips to buying the best kitchen knife sets that has worked for me.
Kitchen knives are available in different sizes and shapes depending on the specific use.For instance we have a vegetable knife,a chefs knife,and a carving knife. However buying a set of knives that contain the above range is cheaper than buying each one of them. I therefore buy my knives according to the specific function i intend to use it for.
It is important to consider the set that is corrosion resistant because I wouldn’t want to buy knives that will let me down by breaking over time. Investing in high quality knives saves me money in the long run even if i bought it expensively. One set that i known to be strong is the Ginsu set. Corrosion resistance is another quality for a good set of knives as this makes the knives to last longer. I easily confirm the knives that are both corrosion resistant and strong by checking the manufacturers guarantee.
Another thing i do before buying a kitchen knife is feeling its weight.If buying the knife for everyday chopping of light ingredients then i go for a light weight chopper.However,for cutting hard food like nuts and palm sugar i would go for the heavy one.
To make sure i am buying quality kitchen knives i check for the balance both in the handle and the blade.I do this by placing my finger at the end of the handle then horizontally holding the knife with the cutting edge facing down. By doing this ,i would know a good quality knife when it balances at that point. A knife that is well balanced makes cutting easier without using much effort.
The ceramic kitchen knives are considered the best quality and i always look for those particular ones whenever i go to the store to buy my kitchen knives.This knives are able to stay sharp for a long time and are also rust free.
In conclusion, I would say that a good quality kitchen knives set is an investment that i will never regret making.I will always go for non stainless steel knives like those made from carbon steel because they are easy to sharpen.
