Best Kitchen Knives :
I can tell you it’s really frustrating to cook when you have a kitchen knives that
- Can’t easily cut through meats, chicken and etc.
- Uneasy and uncomfortable to hold after for a while.
- Have To Sharpen Often.
- Hard to Clean.
- And More
My personal choices for best kitchen knives :
- Forscher Victorinox Knives – Best Budget Kitchen Knives
- Sun Classic Knives – Best Kitchen Knives Set
- Sun Classic Knives - Best Chef Knives
- Misono Knives – Best Kitchen Knives (overall).
It’s meet my 7 standard:) It’s hard to pick and choose the best kitchen knives until I come up with a more systematic way to measure them with this 7 facts.
So what are the 7 facts?
- Sharp and finely ground surface
- Cutting edge retention – This are the things is you can only find out after you buy the knives 3 months later, duh! This is where a little bit of online research help.
- Craftsmanship – A good craftsmanship mean here is the parts of the knives must be joining perfectly together. This is particular important for hygienic reason and handle!
- Comfortable and safety – A handle that are design to be providing secure grips and comfortable will always make a big different here.
- Balance – When you start cutting, balance is playing an important key on how easily for you to use the knives. Best kitchen knives always have top notch balanced.
- Corrosion resistance – this is part of edge retention factor and proper chemical composition technology of the steel is a major big PLUS. Unfortunately, mom like us have no way to tell what the best composition technology:P Well, this is where we just have to listen to the expert or manufacturer report.
- Easy wash – well, not many people use dishwasher to clean their knives, at least not from me. But I think quality knives should never be put in a dishwasher even though the manufacturer said it’s okay to do that. Anyway, dishwasher or how easy to wash might be another hidden factor that we can easily miss.
Of course, as you know, there are too many choices out there, Misono, Forscher Victorinox and Sun Classic are my recommendation and those knives really out perform in the 7 facts that I mention above! You can find out more detail information about those knives in my previous post here:
