|8" Chef's Knife |
You don't have to spend hundreds on a good knife. This model is not too heavy, easy to keep sharp, and an excellent value. It's big enough to get the job done, but not so huge it's unwieldy.
|Paring Knife |
The 3 essential knives are a Chef's knife, a bread knife, and one of these paring knives. Flexible enough to do detail work, and sturdy enough to cut through tough foods.
|9" Bread Knife|
You don't need to spend too much on a bread knife, since it can't be sharpened at home. (Also have a look at the "offset" bread knife in this section!)
|3-Piece Knife Set |
This is a very good set of perfectly adequate knives. If you get this, I'd suggest adding the 3.25 paring knife to your collection.
|3-piece Paring Set |
This is such a nice set of paring knives, I gave one to everyone in my family. It's very useful to have a small serrated knife for delicate things like strawberries and tomatoes.
No matter what knives you buy, you need a steel. This one is a very affordable choice, and does a good job for daily honing.
|New West - PETTY |
New West Knifeworks
My favorite! My at-home knife, the 1st one I reach for, every time I cook. I love it so much I won't take it to work! (ask me for my discount code)
|Detachable Kitchen Shears |
The most important feature is that the blades separate for thorough and easy cleaning. No chicken cooties can get stuck in these scissors! I appreciate the tiny serrated blades, they cut through anything. The herb stripper removes fresh thyme from the stems.
|Offset Bread Knife|
The shape of this offset knife keeps your knuckles off the cutting board, It's great for crusty or soft breads, sandwiches, flaky pastry, and any cake from angelfood to pound cake..
|Starter Mandoline |
This is your entry-level mandoline. Consistent slices, thin enough for potato chips Not only is it a bargain, it's easy to clean and small enough to store in a drawer. Preset sizes; Straight blade only.
|Upgrade Mandoline |
An inexpensive alternative to a professional stainless-steel mandoline, this makes it possible to quickly, uniformly, and safely slice and julienne vegetables and fruit. Preset sizes; Straight + Batonnet + Julienne.
This 100% stainless steel Bron mandoline is the one you'll find in pro kitchens. Fully adjustable thickness; Straight + Batonnet + Julienne, plus wavy cuts. Mine has endured 15 yrs of use and it's still perfect.
