Essential Knives for Cooking

Essential Knives for Cooking

Chances are, if you hate to cook it’s because you don’t have good knives. Good knives make all the difference with ease of prepping food. This is even more exaggerated if you are cooking with lots of vegetables.

Quality knives are an investment, but they last a lifetime and are worth the money. I love my Wusthoff knives and have had them for years.

You don’t need a lot of knives, either. Those sets of knives? Forget it—you only need 4 knives.

Here are the essentials:

  • Chef knife: cuts vegetables, cheese
  • Paring knife: cuts small items
  • Serrated knife: bread and tomatoes
  • Carving knife: cuts meat
