KitchenAid's knife on Kitchen toolkit episode

You can never underestimate the importance of a good knife in the kitchen. Watch the full episode to find out if this one a good fit for your kitchen or not

In this episode of ‘The Kitchen Toolkit by Beautiful Homes’ I had to experiment with a chopping knife from KitchenAid. Since there is no dish that requires as much chopping as a salad, that’s what we made. And not just a boring Ceaser, this salad is as desi as it gets, made on a base of masoor dal and carrots that have been spiked with Indian spices.

Its German stainless steel blade is razor sharp and I’ve heard it stays this way for long. The knife is angled perfectly, ensuring I wasn’t straining my hand or wrist as I chopped the veggies. The carbon fibre handles also help in making the knife lighter in weight while also remaining sturdy.
