How Important are the right Knives for Chefs?

Almost every one of us knows a little bit of cooking in our lives. But can we compare ourselves with the professional chefs even if we are one at homes?

Cooking is not difficult. All you need is good ingredients, recipe and some tools. But what most of us fail to notice is the importance of these tools. Kitchen knives are counted among one of the most important tools for a cook. And the techniques to use them efficiently makes a cook chef.

So, the knives are a big thing for such chefs. These utility knives give them their whole identity, hence should not be taken lightly. Let's see why knives are so important for them.

Better Control

Chefs are known for their speed. A lot of orders come sprawling in that it becomes difficult to manage if you are slow in chopping. A good set of professional kitchen knives will give a chef better control over his hands, hence making the task easier and faster. And this control also defines the quality of chef. Better control means that chopping would be smooth, unnecessary time would not be wasted, and the dish would come out ready much faster.

Give Texture

Right chopping also helps give better texture to the vegetables being cut. And that can be possible only when you have the right knife for the right kind of vegetable.

For example, let's talk about potato. If you need to make french fries, you will need a different kind of knife. But if you have to make any other vegetable with potato, you would need a different knife.

In short, whichever vegetable you pick, the style of cutting them, in order to give a beautiful presentation to the vegetable, is done only when you have a good quality knife.

Popular Knives

Now when you know why knives are so important to a chef, let's talk about which are the 2 most popular knives used. The first kind of knife, which is highly popular among chefs is Damascus pattern Chef Knife. If you wish to buy this for your own use, you can do so through Amazon itself.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
