I am absolutely loving my Made In Knife Set in the kitchen. As a gal who cooks a lot, I need knives that are workhorses for me. The Knife Set is perfect for just that. It comes with a Chef Knife, a Santoku Knife, a Utility Knife, and a Paring Knife. If you get our weekly Friday Favorites, you already know a bit about my favorite kitchen tools. I don’t use a lot of kitchen gadgets like an Instant Pot or air fryer, but a good set of knives is a must!
The Santoku Knife
The Santoku might be my favorite knife in the set. It is perfect for everyday use in the kitchen. I use it for chopping vegetables and fruits like peppers, apples, and cabbage. Plus, it perfect for slicing my Everyday Roast Chicken Breast. At seven inches long, it’s a great size that covers a lot of ground without getting too big.
The Chef Knife
The Chef Knife is eight inches, so it’s slightly bigger than the Santoku. This is for your large kitchen jobs. If I am cutting a butternut squash for my Whole30 Roasted Butternut Squash with Ground Sirloin, this is my go-to. In the summer, it’s perfect for cutting watermelon or cantaloupe. Plus, it is a great knife for anyone with larger hands.
The Utility Knife
The Utility Knife is the only serrated knife in the set, so it’s absolutely going to come in handy. I’ve been loving it for slicing or peeling a tomato or cutting a baguette when I’m making a sandwich like my BLT. There are some things that the Utility Knife truly does best, you will be so glad to have it in your kitchen.
The Paring Knife
The Paring Knife is the smallest knife in the set, and you guessed it, I love using it for small jobs in the kitchen! If I’m peeling garlic to make Garlic Confit, or prepping shallots for my Hunter’s Chicken, the paring knife is great.
