Cutlery: More Than Just Knives
Cutlery is in important part of your overall kitchen cookware. There are a variety of pieces that can be found in a
standard kitchen cutlery set, all of which are designed and manufactured for different uses.
For a versatile cutlery item that dices, chops, and minces you will need a chef’s knife. To thinly slice meat and cheese,
especially very thinly as you would for sandwiches, you will want to use a slicer.
The knife with the large, square blade that is recognized by almost everyone is called a cleaver. This is perfect utensil
for quickly slicing through both meat and bones.
To create decorative elements to your food, you will need to use the flexible and narrow paring and filleting knives,
both of which allow you to make delicate cuts in food.
When we speak of kitchen cutlery we mean much more than just knives. The term is used to include a variety of cookware
accessories that are often included in a cutlery set. One such
accessory is the wooden block used to store the knives so that they will not dull. The block has pre-cut slots that fit
each of the types of knives in the cutlery set.
Keep your countertop free of cuts and nicks, as well as your knife sharp, by using a plastic or wooden cutting board.
Another useful accessory is the sharpening stone used to keep your knife in top condition for years.
