Which knives do I really need?
The Basics
These knives are a must have

A basic assortment of high-quality kitchen knives should be at hand in every kitchen. Three knife types meet this need:

  • a cook’s knife,
  • a vegetable knife,
  • a bread knife.

Sharp, high quality knives carry a higher price but last much longer than cheap ones: investing in quality products means that you will enjoy using your knives for longer. You will also be able to resharpen them if necessary, instead of having to buy new ones. Good knives should always be well balanced and fit comfortably in your hand.
