Why invest in a good cutlery set for your kitchen? Well, there are tons of compelling reasons. Most tasks you’ll perform in your kitchen are easily accomplished so long as you’ve got the right knife on hand. Each blade is designed for a specific purpose. So what is what – and why does it matter?
A complete cutlery set will have a chef’s knife, a utility knife, paring knives, a boning knife, a bread knife, a steak knife, a cleaver, and kitchen shears. Some of them have pretty obvious uses. A bread knife? You slice bread with it. And others have more than one use: the chef’s knife can be used for just about every cutting task in the kitchen; it can chop lots of different foods! Paring knives, meanwhile, are great for cutting and peeling fruits and veggies.
Basically, everything in a cutlery set is there for a reason. And while a great set may cost more than a little money, it’s worth the investment if you’re big on meal prep! Even if meal prep isn’t your favorite thing, we’ve all got to do it, which means sooner or later you’ll need a good set of knives.
