Like any other craftsman, a dedicated chef needs professional quality tools. There’s a world of difference between a professional chef’s knife and its big-box store look-alike. Serious chef tools will last for years and do their jobs neatly and quickly.
We have an enormous selection of chef accessories and chef utensils. Once you’ve bought some good knives, you’ll want culinary tools, such as storage and sharpening tools to protect your investment. Durable cutting boards will guard both your knives and your kitchen counters.
Must-Have Chef Tools
Top-of-the-line knives not only make preparation quicker and safer, but they also help create eye-pleasing presentations. Sharper knives are actually safer than dull ones. A sharp knife cuts cleanly. Dull knives are liable to slip, bounce off the food surface or require too much pressure to be used safely.
You’ll need some knife sharpening tools to keep your knives sharp and smooth. There is also chef equipment that will store your knives safely. Consider some of the following chef tools:
A honing rod is a must-have chef tool. Its abrasive surface will smooth away nicks and imperfections between professional sharpenings.
KNIFE ROLL BAG
If you travel between kitchens, whether professionally or as part of your social life, you need a knife roll. Don’t risk working with someone else’s dull knives. Take these essential chef tools with you in a sturdy, compact roll-up bag.
Keep your knives at their sharpest with a knife sheath. Often made of fine wood, a magnetic knife sheath or cover guarantees that your perfect knife edge won’t be damaged.
Ordinary scissors weren’t designed to cut up chicken breasts or divide cartilage. Tools for a chef should include heavy-duty kitchen shears that are ergonomically designed, rust-proof, and perform difficult tasks such as cutting bones.
