Finesseur Shares Helpful Tips To Avoid Buying Low-Quality Kitchen Knives
Using a low-quality kitchen knife not only prolongs food preparation, but also puts the familyís health and safety in harmís way. Kitchenware brand Finesseur releases a quick guide that consumers can use to ensure buying only high-quality kitchen knives.
"When we don't keep our eyes open, we run the risk of buying a low-quality kitchen knife that is not only dangerous to use, but can also threaten our family's health," says Finesseur spokesperson Allison Montgomery. "It is for this reason that Finesseur has released a buying guide to assist consumers in choosing a good quality knife."
With the kitchen knife buying guide, Finesseur aims to help consumers spot the low-quality ones and narrow down their choices when shopping for high-quality ones.
Kitchen knife don't's
When a kitchen knife is of low quality, it becomes dull with long-term use. A dull knife, says Montgomery, causes the food to slip off easily and puts the user at risk for cuts. "When we slice or chop an ingredient using a dull knife, we use more force than needed. Too much force may cause us to lose control, resulting in injury. That's why when buying a knife, it is extremely important to ensure that it stays sharp so it can be controlled easily and avoid accidents."
Majority of low-quality knives are not ergonomically designed, which means their handles are not specifically made for comfortable use. Adds Montgomery: "A poorly made handle can cause hand fatigue and injury. When you buy a knife, you should make sure the handle is comfortable to use and secure in your grip even when your hand is wet."
Most importantly, low-quality knives can easily acquire bacteria, which can put the family's health at risk, says Montgomery.
Kitchen knife shopping 101
Apart from making food preparation fast and easy, a good kitchen knife should be able to pass the test of time. In buying a good quality kitchen knife, consumers should look for one that is durable and hygienic, provides long-lasting sharpness, and enables comfortable, secure handling.
Montgomery lists down some helpful tips to ensure consumers get all these qualities when shopping for a kitchen knife.
1. Look for a knife that suits kitchen needs. There are a variety of kitchen knives for a variety of uses: utility knife, paring knife, chef's knife, bread knife, carving knife, boning knife, vegetable cleaver, meat cleaver, etc. Find an all-purpose one that can be used for a variety of chopping jobs like the chef's knife, which can be used for cutting, slicing, dicing, mincing, paring, and coring.
2. Check out the blade's material. While stainless steel blades are a popular choice, ceramic blades are turning out to be a better alternative as they are more durable and provide long-lasting edge.
3. Feel the grip. The knife should be easy to handle and comfortable to use. It should give the buyer room to move without putting unnecessary stress on the fingers.
4. Ensure exceptional craftsmanship. The knife's parts should be gapless and without any burrs nor irregular portions. This reflects high hygienic quality.
Montgomery advises consumers to always keep these tips in mind when looking for a high-quality kitchen knife. "We at Finesseur encourage today's discerning consumers to make sound choices when it comes to buying a kitchen knife. The Finesseur Ceramic 8-inch Chef's Knife, for instance, is a good investment as it holds its sharpness longer and is non-porous and rust-free so it is safe from germs and bacteria. Through this product, Finesseur makes it easier for consumers to choose the right kitchen knife that will give them peace of mind when it comes to health and kitchen safety."
