Know your knives?
With the nation spending more time at home and experimenting with their cooking, cutlery experts Viners, have put together a series of top tips to help you develop your food preparation skills, making sure you can cook safely and efficiently. Choosing the right knife for the right cutting task in the kitchen is essential. From the width of the blade to the length of the handle, each knife has been designed for a specific cutting task.
This short bladed knife is ideal for small and precise jobs. The Paring Knife can easily trim mushrooms, strawberries and more, and is one of the most used knives in a chef’s kitchen. Whether you’re paring, peeling or slicing, this versatile knife does it all.
When it comes to small slicing tasks such as mincing shallots, fine-slicing herbs and trimming your vegetables, the Utility Knife is great at multi-tasking. With a blade slightly longer than a paring knife, and more agile and nimble than the larger chef’s knife, this tool is convenient and dependable. Whether you’re cutting through your sandwich, or slicing, cutting and portioning large chunks of cheese, look to the utility knife.
You would think it’s all in the name, but the bread knife is perfect for slicing through fruit and vegetables with tough, waxy or slippery outer skins too. Effortlessly prepare pineapples, watermelons and large tomatoes. The long, serrated blade will ensure cleanly sliced ingredients without tearing.
Separate meat from the bone, and portion easily with a Carving Knife for serving. The narrow blade allows for precise cuts giving you full control over your roasts.
