Using the right knife for each kitchen task helps you prepare ingredients more efficiently, gives your food the appropriate texture and lets you work more safely.



These are the basic types of kitchen knives home cooks should have on hand:



* Chef - An essential knife for every kitchen. Chop, slice and dice all fruits, vegetables and meat.



* Utility - An all-purpose, mid-size knife for chopping and cutting larger fruits and vegetables. A serrated edge is ideal for tomatoes.



* Slicer - Cut clean, even slices of meat with the long blade and pointed tip.



* Bread - The serrated, scalloped edge is perfect for cutting loaves of bread with hard crusts.



* Boning/Filet - Used to trim and carve meats.



* Parer - A small knife that gives you control to trim and slice small fruits and vegetables.
