Professional chef training isn't necessary to prepare gourmet meals at home. With some creativity and the right equipment, creating beautiful meals is easy. Santoku style knives are a great way to get the control and precision needed to do all the prep work for even the most complicated of meals. Used with a simple bamboo cutting board, cutting up vegetables has never been easier.
Unlike a chef's knife, santoku knives have been specifically created to provide precision balance to the home chef. Blades by J.A. Henckles, Analon, Harold Imports, Martha Stewart and others fit easily into the hand for perfect balance. A knife that is easy to hold is simply easier to control and use. The shorter blade size makes these knives an excellent addition to a home cutlery set. More useful that a traditional paring knife and not as large as a full chef's knife, santoku blades provide ultimate control in the kitchen.
With ceramic blades, the knives won't pit or rust. The ceramic also holds an edge exceptionally well. Because of this, food safety is always ensured and there is no need to regularly replace the knife. Instead, one simple knife makes paring vegetables, fine dicing and even chopping herbs simple and safe. Cut garlic as thin as a microplane or create elegant fruit flowers for a fresh and edible centerpiece. These tasks and more are simply easier with a santoku style knife.
The blades make excellent gifts for the bride and groom or for a housewarming party. Every home chef needs a good knife and by gifting one with perfect balance, easy control, and a super sharp cutting service, the gift is more functional than most knives.
Instead of an average paring knife or chef knife, turn to a blade that uses technology and materials to creating the ultimate cutting tool. Find a razor-sharp santoku knife to help create gourmet meals at home, at Macy's.
