Knives having special purposes allow you to work with precision, adequate performance, and speed. Cutlery manufacturers have found intelligent to create various types of ergonomic knives, with the aim that these knives find their place in the kitchen of professional chefs as well as amateurs cooks.

However, to fully take advantage of the usefulness of these specific knives, it is important to know their respective functions, otherwise you will find yourself with a drawer full of knives and using only the bare minimum: Bread knife, cheese knife or foie gras knife; let us discover these small but great kitchen helpers!

Optimize every kitchen knife you have!

Some kitchen knives are very popular, while others are less so, especially in our own house. There are more than 50 types of knives on the market, which people barely realise. We are not going to elaborate on each existing cutting tool, but rather on the essentials to help you differentiate easily.

The bread knife

This knife has a sharp serrated blade to provide a precise cut without crushing the bread. A good bread knife allows you to cut even slices of sandwich bread, sponge cake, brioche, baguette, and all kinds of bread. The bread knife can have a stainless steel or ceramic blade.

A bread knife stands out for its versatility, since it can be used to cut other things other than bread: pastries, cooked meats, and fruits and vegetables. The performance of this knife is based on the hardness of its blade, which facilitates the movement in different types of crusts.

The cheese knife

The cheese knife has been specially designed to cut and serve cheese in various forms and textures. There are different kinds of cheese on the market: soft cheese, marble cheese, hard cheese etc. Therefore, it is essential to have a certain culinary expertise to choose the right knife that will allow you to cut your cheese perfectly.

Soft cheeses: the two-pointed curved knife

Hard cheeses: the cleaver

Fresh cheeses: the butter knife or the spreader knife

Crumbly, wet cheeses: the cheese lyre, also known as the cheese cutter

To hold cheese in a tray when serving: the cheese fork

Slicing cheese has never been so easy!

Foie gras knife

Foie gras is a very delicate food which requires a specific knife to ensure its cutting. It must be regular and clean. The foie gras knife has a slotted blade with a pointed tip. The holes in the blades are like a non-stick coating to easily separate the food from the knife. When you gently slice foie gras with this knife, you are sure to get clean, thin slices.

The foie gras lyre is also regularly used to slice this type of food. Made of stainless steel, the lyre guarantees performance and durability. With such a tool in your kitchen, you will master the art of cutting foie gras for exceptional tasting moments.

Maintain your knives in the best way for a longer life span!

To preserve the blades of your knives, it is essential to maintain them. Avoid putting kitchen knives in the dishwasher. After using them, wash them immediately, dry them and store them in an appropriate place. Also remember to sharpen your knives regularly. Cutting with a non-sharpened blade will require you to apply more force to the knife and the food. This can easily damage both.
