How to Choose the Right Kitchen Cutlery

If you cook, for yourself, for your family and friends, for customers, one of the kitchen utensils that you really need is kitchen cutlery. Kitchen cutleries are sets of kitchen knives with each knife having different cutting purposes. Chefs usually have a kitchen cutlery since they cook using different types of ingredients. If you cook simple dishes, then you'll only need some of the kitchen knives. But regardless of that, you still need to find the right knife for you. Many people do find it hard to pick the right knife, so they just grab one and use it. But if you want to make sure that you are using the best knife, then you must thoroughly research on the knives available in the market and find the one that is right for you. Here are some tips that will help you choose the best knives there is for you.

The first thing that you must take into consideration when choosing a kitchen knife is the grip. If you can have a firm grip on a knife, then that knife is good for you. You should also think if the weight is comfortable for you. If it is too light or too heavy, then those knives won't do. You need to find one that can satisfy your liking. Control over the knife should be considered too. If you feel like you can control the knife, the weight is comfortable, and you can maintain a good grip at it, then that is the right knife for you. The next problem you would be facing though, are the factors that affect the knife. This includes the material that was used to make the knife, the method that was used to make it, and the type of handle that it has. This affects everything about the knife like its flexibility, its ability to be rust-proof, its weight, and even its usage.

The blade is usually made from different materials all of which has its own advantages and disadvantages. Ceramic knives, for example, are made from ceramic materials. It is stain-proof and rust-proof. It can hold the edge longer than steel. But ceramic knives are not flexible and when it gets dull, you'll need to sharpen it using a diamond stone. Know what material the knife is made from so that you'll be sure what you need from a knife.

There are three methods used to create a knife: stamping, forging and multilayer. Stamp knives are very flexible. Most of stamp knives though, have no finger guard but manufacturers are slowly making stamp knives with finger guard. Forged knives are heavier and less flexible than stamp knives. All forged knives have a finger guard. Both these two compete with each other. But the best knives that you can buy are the multilayered ones. Multilayered knives are proud for being hard and heavy while still having a good flexibility. But is too expensive and therefore, only worth buying if you are totally interested in it.

There are two types of handle of knives. The first one is the in-line handle in which the top of the handle is in line with the top or spine of the knife blade. Off-set handles has the handle raised above the spine. Any of the handle types would do. But the important part of the handles is the material it was made from. The handle you would want is the one that you could maintain a firm grip on. That means that the handle should not get slippery when wet. A handle that is made from wood do not get slippery when wet but requires much caring so that it would not break. Plastic and stainless steels used as materials from the handle usually get very slippery when wet but at the very least, they do not require too much caring. Choose which handle can benefit you most so that you won't find it hard to cut your ingredients.
