Which knives do you need for your kitchen?
Kitchen knives come in all shapes and sizes. Each knife is designed for a specific purpose or product. Here are some essential knives that are indispensable in your kitchen.
From chopping vegetables, to cutting the perfect julienne strips or slicing meat, chef's knives are by far the most indispensable kind of kitchen knife. In the professional kitchen, the chef's knife is also the most frequently used knife.
Do you want the absolute best cutting experience? Japanese knives are the perfect choice for you. For example, you can choose a santoku knife, which is the Japanese version of a chef's knife. An excellent choice not only for Asian cuisine, but also for Western cuisine.
Bread knives are perfect to cut bread, bagels and other baked goods. But did you know that they're also great to cut larger vegetables and fruit, such as pumpkins or melons? By making a sawing motion with your bread knife you'll have a lot of control over the knife.
As the name suggests, a utility knife is an all-purpose knife that you can use for almost anything. You can use it as a small chef's knife or as a large peeling knife.
Carving knives are specifically designed for cutting raw and cooked meat. Thanks to the low blade height, and often long blade length, you cut slices from large pieces of meat in one move. You won't have to make too many sawing motions, which prevents the meat from tearing. Cutting slices off a brisket or a leg of ham is child's play with these knives.
Peeling knives are knives you use every day. Vegetables, fruit: you'll be able to quickly and effortlessly peel them all. Experience the joy of using a high-quality potato peeler for yourself.
Deliciously prepared, all served up. Good steak knives will take your culinary experience to the next level. When you cut a steak with a good steak knife, you'll notice that you are actually cutting the meat without tearing it. In addition, these knives add a chic look to your dinner table.
An inexpensive way to purchase all the essential kitchen knives at once is to buy a knife set. You will have a nice collection of knives that match and complement each other for all your culinary adventures.
Choosing the right way to store your knives is just as important as choosing the right kitchen knives. With a knife block you safely store your knives, so you don't hurt yourself and the knives don't get damaged.

Sharpening your kitchen knives
Every knife will become blunt in time. The quality of the knife determines how long it will take before it's necessary to sharpen a knife. In general, our advice is to maintain your knives well and to not let them get too blunt. This will delay the need to sharpen your knives.
