How to Avoid Common Knife Hazards When Choosing a Chef's Knife
The Copper Knife promises to be forever sharp, yet is it simply a preference or does copper really make a big difference in the quality of your cutlery? To test it out myself, I headed down to Minot restaurant supply to try it out. I purchased the same knife as well as a conventional stainless steel knife and was able to tell that a bit of an edge had been added to the knife by adding a coating of copper. This may not have a great effect on cutting or food safety, however it certainly has an attractive appearance.
While I was at Minot I also bought a couple of other kitchen knives. I decided to try out these two new kitchen knives. They are Zovia and Schrade. I decided to give the Zovia a go because I had heard so many good things about them from other consumers. While my wife and I were looking through the kitchen supply a couple of days later, I happened to notice the Zovia right next to the Schrade. So I decided to write an article to help other potential Zovia buyers make their minds up.
So what makes a good chef knife? Well, there are many different types of blades. I would recommend a knife with a strong but flexible blade and an ergonomic handle fit for the hand. Also, make sure you buy a knife with a solid blade, not a cheap one that will break easily in the hands of the chef.
I would say the best overall blade for food prep is a MRC Pro Logic Grit. It's cheap and it cuts like a pro. While you do spend a little more for this great knife, the price is worth it for saving time. What's more, the SpeedSafe feature will save time every time you open the package. If you're a fast cook, this is the knife for you.
One of the biggest complaints about stainless steel kitchen knives is the tendency for people to use them as weapons instead of utensils. To me, this doesn't make sense at all. Just think about it: if you're going to cut someone with your kitchen knife, why cut them at all? A dull knife is much more likely to hurt somebody, than a sharp one.
To save money, try to find kitchen knives with a decent warranty. You can also save money by trying to repair your own cutlery by visiting your local hardware store and getting a few inexpensive tools. This will also save time because you won't have to waste your time going to a knife retailer and buying something you already own. If nothing else, you can always take it to the jeweler. That way, you can get it for far less than you might find it for at the local dealer.
Another problem common to new chef knives is the tendency for people to slice their food instead of chopping them. When this happens, food sticking out on the plate (which is called "punch") can become a real issue. The problem is that cutting a thick piece of fruit like a pineapple will leave a lot of unneeded room at the top. If you want to avoid this, you should learn to quickly flip the piece of fruit without touching the side of the blade.
Finally, one of the biggest issues people have with cutting knives is the tendency to use the wrong blade. Dull blades are really bad for cutting anything besides thin things like paper and clothing. Dull blades will also snag up the food and make it difficult to eat. Fortunately, you have a number of options for purchasing new chef knives. You can shop at a large chain store, such as a Home Depot, or you can purchase a high quality multi-functional knife like a Chef Pro's Knife.
