A High Quality Knife Set Will Last a Lifetime

Whether you are an avid cook or just like to prepare a nice meal every once in a while, you need a good, complete kitchen knife set. Buying a good set from the beginning is key, because it will last for a lifetime. Sure, those discount store brands are cheap, but the quality is cheap as well. Investing in quality cutlery will keep you from having to spend more money over time when you have to replace your discount brand.

If cost is an issue, there are starter sets available that you can add to over time. This can actually be very beneficial, as it gives you time to figure out your cooking style and kitchen needs. This will help you decide which knives are more important for you to have on hand. If you aren't worried about the cost, then buying a complete knife set that includes all the basics is a good idea. You could even include a nice one on your wedding or housewarming registry and hope that some really generous friend or relative buys one for you!

One way to save costs on quality knives is to buy them from websites or bulk stores. These usually offer much lower prices than buying them directly from the manufacturer or high-end kitchen stores.

Before you set out on your search for the perfect set, you'll need to arm yourself with information about how to find the highest quality. The best knife blades are hand forged from high carbon stainless steel. The blade should also have a full tang, which means it should extend all the way through the handle. This keeps the knife from separating from the handle over time.

Know what types of knives you will use most often. The most popular knife that you will probably use most is a chef's knife. These are usually about 8 to 10 inches long. A serrated bread knife is good to have so you can cut breads with hard crusts more easily. A carving knife and fork are also good things to include in your knife set. You may not use them as often as other knives, but you'll be glad you have them on hand when you need to slice a roast, ham, or turkey.

When you set out to buy your knives, look for brands like Wüsthof, Global, and Henckels. These are excellent companies that have high standards when it comes to manufacturing. They will last you a lifetime. Victorinox Straight Edge Pointed, Henckels SOS Carbon Stainless Knives, Wusthof 9755Classic 2 Piece, Paula Deen 14-Piece, sthof 9727 Gourmet 3 Piece, J.A.
