From professional chefs to passionate home cooks, this cleaver is the ideal companion for mastering the art of Chinese cuisine and beyond. While some brands claim their knives are dishwasher safe, we’d always advise against this to keep them in top condition. But there’s a huge difference between the numbers, so if the knifemaker says their knives range between 55 and 58 Rockwell, that’s sort of like me telling a policeman I was driving somewhere between 10 and 80 miles an hour.

The blade, which has a Rockwell rating of 56, is broad enough to use on the flat to crush garlic cloves without fear of injury. This is a santoku, which translates as ‘three virtues’, meaning it’s equally useful for meat, fish and vegetables. In 2017 we sent the top-performing knives from our chopping panel to the kitchen at New York City’s Le Coucou, where the cooks used them for prep and during service for a week. The benefits go beyond just food - Kitchen Social helps with general mental and physical well-being and social integration.MasterChef-approved, this set is perfect for preparing any task - from paring fruit to slicing bread. If you’re investing in a quality, expensive knife, like our main pick, we still believe that a whetstone used properly will provide the sharpest, smoothest edge.

Some testers found it difficult to pinch grip the knife because of the angle where the handle meets the blade. I like the very classic French-German look, with full tang (the rear half of the blade that forms the core of the handle) and three visible rivets. NON-STICK BLADES - The stainless steel blades are coated with a non-stick, antibacterial plating for convenience and increased corrosion resistance while giving them a unique matte finish. Creator Hugo Worsley is a chef who wanted to do something about waste in the food industry and makes the handles out of recycled plastics.

After some education and a lot of practice, you’ll be able to sharpen any old knife to a pro-style edge. We were looking for sharpness, a durable blade and a good weight balance so that the knife is easy to use. In the broadest terms, European chefs tend to rock the blade, which is why the knives have a pronounced curve, whereas Japanese chefs tend to slice more, so their blades are straighter,” says Timpson. The Tojiro knife is thinner and more brittle than our top pick, so it’s not suitable for hacking through thick, dense vegetables, like butternut squash.

Young Chef Young Waiter is a national competition open to all young professional waiters and chefs from any background. The handle material provides optimum comfort and grip with a bolster located at the front, adding equal weight throughout the whole piece.Viners has existed for over 110 years and has become a much-loved British brand and household name, steeped in heritage.
