Every chef in the world will tell you to invest in good, sharp knives. What they mean is that you should get your hands on expert knives, not just new ones. But, sometimes it can seem as though the chefs of the world are keeping all the best knife manufacturers secret. Well, here’s your chance to crack through that shell.
Each of these knives are considered professional quality, but, as you can see, there is a big difference in price. When it gets into this range, you can expect that any knife you buy will make a big difference to your food preparation skills, but you’ll still need to balance price with the features (and design you want).
One more thing – even though many knives can be put into the dishwasher, you should still wash most of them by hand. The last thing you’ll want to do is allow food particles to remain on your knives. And never scrap food from your cutting board with the blade side down – that’s the same as leaving your knives in a drawer or tips down in a container. (And, you’d never to that, right?)
