Many cooks have a favorite pan or spoon, but none of that comes close to the relationships cooks have with their favorite knives. A good knife is the most important part of the kitchen. Whether you are slicing, dicing, chopping, paring, mincing, or carving, the right knife is an essential tool in the kitchen.

When purchasing cutlery, you can get them individually or as a set. Typically, buying them as a set will save you money. A knife set should come with several starter pieces: a paring knife, a chef’s knife, a utility knife, a carving knife, and a bread knife. Keeping your knives sharp and clean is essential for their effective use and long life. A dull knife can create difficulties when preparing foods or may even cause injury. You can use sharpening steel or sharpening stone to ensure a quality blade. For more information on knife selection, read our written buyer’s guide.
