Having the proper tools will save you time in the kitchen; having the proper knife allows you to prep your meals with less time and energy.
A chef’s knife is your best partner in meal prep: the right match will make chopping, dicing, slicing, and mincing effortless.
Here are a few things to consider when choosing your knife
For more precise control and a more comfortable hold, grip the blade with your thumb and index finger, and wrap your three fingers around the handle. When mincing or chopping foods with a chef’s knife, you do not necessarily need to lift your knife - just make a rocking motion with the tip of your knife staying close to the board.
