What are Different Types of Kitchen Knives Used for?

Different kitchen knives serve different purposes, but the cornerstone of any knife collection is a versatile 7” or 8” chef’s knife. This knife features a broad and sharp blade and can be used to cut foods and meats of all sizes, from chopping to mincing to slicing. The sharper your blade, the more controlled and consistent your cuts will be. Smaller chef knives (5”) are ideal for repetitive slicing and mincing of medium- to small-sized dense fruits and vegetables like carrots, green onions, herbs and meats. Other important kitchen knives to have include a paring knife (3.5”) for smooth, precise cuts while trimming, peeling or slicing fruits and vegetables, and utility knives (6.5”) that are ideal for cutting, chopping, mincing or slicing small to medium foods like onions and bell peppers. Finally, use serrated utility knives for cutting bread, delicate foods and ingredients with thicker skins, such as tomatoes and sausages.
