A good set of knives can make any meal prep easy and quick. And while there are one too many types of knives out there in the market, you honestly only need four kinds of knives to get all your cutting, chopping, slicing, and even peeling done. So what are these four kinds of knives?
Chef's Knife: A versatile, must-have knife. It usually comes in standard 8-inch or 10-inches length and is perfect for all your everyday slicing, dicing, and chopping fruits, vegetables, meat, and leafy greens.
Paring Knife: At 3-inches long (the blade that is), it's one of the smallest knives in the kitchen and it's essentially helpful for peeling vegetables and fruits. It can also be used for chopping and slicing garlic, ginger, and smaller softer vegetables.
Cleaver: This heavy-duty knife has a blade length of anywhere between 6 and 11 inches long. It's perfect for cutting through bones and meat, and even hard vegetables like yam and carrots. Also, when you want to do a lot of chopping. If you get at it, you can even replace your chef's knife with a cleaver.
Serrated Knife: A bread knife that will help you cut into your loaf of sourdough, baguette, and even regular bakery loaf bread with ease.
