Top 10 best knife sets
In this top 10 knife sets we made an overview of our best knife sets with a short explanation of what makes the set so unique. Knife sets are great if you immediately want to own a perfect combination of knives. There is, however, a lot to choose from! Do you want to own a knife set with a carving knife or bread knife? With a large chef's knife or perhaps a small peeling knife? Check out the top 10 listed below and discover which knife set will suit which activities best.
Knife sets are comprised of different types of kitchen knives to make sure you will always have the right knife for every task in the kitchen. Everyone, however, has his or her favourite dishes. A filleting or carving knife won't come in handy if you prefer preparing vegetarian dishes. That is why you need to think carefully about which knives you want to be a part of your knife set!
Which knives do I need? Do you prefer to cook together? If so, it is best to go with a knife set enhanced with two large kitchen knives. A chef's knife and a santoku, for instance. Do you often work with meat or fish? Go with a set enhanced with a filleting or carving knife. The low blade of a filleting or carving knife ensures that the slices won't stick to the blade and tear. Not a fan of fish, but do love bread? A bread knife, or serrated utility knife shouldn't be missing from your knife set. These serrated knives are also great when you often cut hard vegetables. Like pumpkins, melon or celeriac.Do you need to open a lot of packaging? This works best with kitchen scissors. If you are not a fan of large knives or prefer to use lighter, smaller knives, go with a set of utility knives or peeling knives. If it doesn't matter to you which knives are a part of your knife set as long as they are sharp, go with a knife set enhanced with a sharpening or honing steel. With it you make sure your knives stay in great shape.
Storage In addition to the knives it is also important you think of storage. When you safely store your knife set you make sure your knives won't become blunt and stay in great shape. As such you can enjoy your set the longest! Some knife sets come with a practical knife block you can use to safely store your knives. Choose a colour that will suit your kitchen best! Would you rather not store your knives in a large block on your countertop? Go with a knife set in-drawer knife organizer. Do you love cooking with friends? If so, a knife set with a knife bag to keep your knives safe is a great option.
