The Very Best Knives and Cutlery Tools You Can Buy for 2021
The single best tool you can have in the kitchen is a good chef’s knife. That’s what any chef or cooking pro (including the home cooks behind this very site) will tell you. It’s essential for mincing garlic, chopping herbs, breaking down a whole chicken, or slicing an onion into half-moons. Which chef’s knife should you get? We’ll tell you. And we’ll also tell you our picks for a bread knife, a paring knife, and, well, all the cutlery and cutlery-related tools.
These super-sharp superstars come from our recently launched guide to the very best kitchen tools and cookware for 2021: It’s called Kitchn Essentials, and you can browse the whole thing here. If you’re stocking up, here are our top picks when it comes to knives and knife-related gear.
Note: We’ve indicated which ones are “repeat winners,” meaning they were also chosen as our top picks in last year‘s Kitchn Essentials!
