Kitchenware Brand Finesseur Releases Exclusive Guide To Customers On Chef’s Knife Techniques
Finesseur announces quick-start guide to help customers use chef’s knives properly and safely in support of their latest product, a ceramic chef’s knife.
Finesseur spokesperson Allison Montgomery explains, "Using a knife properly is not as simple as it looks. It takes a certain degree of knowledge and skill, but it's very important to learn it because a knife can be a dangerous item when not used properly. A lot of household accidents involve knives, and anyone who regularly cooks or prepares food should know the basics of how to use a knife, particularly a chef’s knife, properly and safely."
"Proper technique allows the user to have better control of the knife blade. This not only maintains safety, it also maximizes knife life and helps the user cut ingredients easier," Montgomery further asserts.
Most people just grip the knife's handle and chop away. But, for proper chopping technique, the thumb and index finger must grip the top of the blade on both sides, while the rest of the fingers are loosely wrapped around the handle of the knife. With practice, this grip will become natural.
The other hand, called the "guiding hand" holds the item or food to be chopped or sliced. If not positioned properly, this hand is in danger of getting cut. The best way to hold the food is to grip it with this hand in a claw-like position. The fingers are curled and the food is gripped by the fingernails. The knife blade should rest against the first knuckle of the guiding hand.
The guide released by Finesseur also includes use and care information regarding ceramic knives. The guide is provided free of charge to customers who order the Finesseur's ceramic chef's knife on Amazon.
Finesseur brings fashion design, precise engineering, and top quality craftsmanship together in American kitchens. Finesseur believes kitchen tools should be not only functional, but also inspirational.
