You don’t know what you’ve got until you get something better!
When Good Cook sent me a set of their nonstick kitchen knives to try, I felt sorry for myself that I had been using such dull and inadequate knives for as long as I had been.
What a difference a good knife makes!
There are six nonstick kitchen knives available at Good Cook and they are stylish, sleek and oh so colorful!
Each one comes with a perfectly fitted sheath for safety, and it’s a good thing because they’re very sharp. (I’d forgotten what it was like to use a sharp knife; it sure makes kitchen prep easier!)
The first knife I tried was the 4″ paring knife ($14.99) and it sliced right into my apple with barely any pressure. I really had to push with my old knife. What a beautiful change of pace to peel so easily.
The Chef’s Knife ($24.49) with its 5″ blade felt so comfortable in my hand despite its size and I used it to slice and shred a head of lettuce. I really like it for when I’m dicing veggies as it’s perfect for that back-and-forth rocking motion.
The Santoku knife ($18.39) feels so balanced to me and because the blade and handle are the same size. I feel a lot of control when I’m using it. Because of that, I tend to grab this when I’m chopping.
I had no idea how much I’d love this utility knife ($15.69) until using it. It feels so perfectly sized and comfy in my hand and it’s just so darn versatile! It sliced through my tomatoes without crushing them even the tiniest bit. I love this knife!
What a pleasure to cut through a loaf of bread without compressing and smooshing it to half its size. This 7″ bread knife ($29.99) is effortless to use, and I absolutely love it.
I didn’t even know how handy a sandwich knife ($19.99) would be until trying this one. Not only does the serrated blade slice through sandwiches, cheeses, cold cuts and burger sets without smooshing, but it has a nice wide blade for spreading condiments and toppings on the sandwiches too.
Each of the serrated blades is crafted from high-carbon steel, which stays sharp through regular use and the nonstick coating helps keep crumbs from sticking to the blades.
I found each of them quite comfortable to hold and work with, and the soft-grip, ergonomic handle allowed me a lot of control even when my hands were wet. I really like all of them, but I find myself grabbing the utility knife and the chef’s knife the most.
