When it comes down to it, knives are the most important tools in the kitchen. Each knife is designed with a specific purpose in mind and helps you ultimately cook the best food in the shortest amount of time possible. If you are someone who is looking to get more serious about cooking, invest in these two knives and make your life easier and most professional.

Chef’s Knife

This is the knife you probably think of when you imagine a knife It is a really big, sharp knife, with a blade that is best used for mincing, slicing, chopping, and dicing. Although those are the best uses, a chef’s knife can really do whatever job you need if you’re in a tough spot.


Bread Knife

Although it may seem to say it all in the title, this serrated knife is not just to be used for bread. This knife can also be used to cut fresh biscotti before you put it back in the oven for its second bake, for cutting slippery fruits like pineapples and watermelons or even slicing a cake into even pieces. If you have no other serrated knives, use a bread knife to cut tomatoes as well for even slices.
