Kitchen knife experts recommend these five knives for the holidays
OLEAN, N.Y., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tis the season for chopping, slicing and dicing. With that thought, the experts at CUTCO Cutlery advise that you have the right tools for the upcoming holiday cooking frenzy.
"From creating multi-course holiday dinners to simple finger foods for cocktail parties, these five knives are holiday essentials," said Kathleen Donovan, senior public relations coordinator for CUTCO. "Having them on hand and making sure they're sharp will help make food preparation run more smoothly."
These knives were selected by CUTCO's culinary advisory board and its fans on Facebook as the most essential for the holidays.
"If you're on a budget and just beginning a quality knife collection, the chef's knife and paring knife will get you through all your holiday prep," said Barbara Seelig-Brown, cookbook author and host of the PBS show Stress Free Cooking.
Looking to turn up your culinary creativity? Chef Susan Goss likes the bird's beak paring knife and santoku-style paring knife. "I can make flourishes and carvings, and the trimmings easily fall away from the knife."
Along with having the right knives on hand, CUTCO offers these tips for being holiday-ready.
One of the best things you can do to take the stress out holiday food preparation is to know your limits, accept help and don't try to be all things to all people.
