So I had a few people ask me about the knives I used, here are a few of my favorite, and around $10-15. I found these at one of our local grocery stores but you can also find them on Amazon. The top two knives are ‘Good Cook Chef Knife Santoku Knife made of High Carbon Stainless Steel ‘. I love to use this one for pretty much anything, chopping, slicing, mincing, etc. The longer blade gives you more movement. I have had them for 2 years and they have held up through everything without scratching, rusting, and I haven’t sharpened them!
The third one from the top, the aqua knife is a Faberware. My newest addition, and my newest favorite, especially because they come in 6 different shapes and sizes- my next purchases! These knives feature resin-coated stainless steel blades that reduce the sticking of food to the knife, allowing for easier, more efficient cutting. Love that they come with a cover for the blade, and are easily cleaned with warm soap and water. I love using this knife for slicing smaller fruits and vegetables.
The bottom knife is also a Good Cook, but a resin coated stainless steel paring knife. They also come in various colors! A paring knife is a small utility knife that can be used for peeling and chopping fruits and vegetables. Slice delicate garnishes, devein shrimp, or trim fruits and baby veggies. Paring knives are extremely versatile and can be used in a wide variety of ways, making them one of the most frequently utilized knives of a chef's kitchen. If you don’t have any knives in your kitchen yet, a paring knife is a great first investment.
I use all four of these knives every day! You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to slice and dice like a pro!
