I never understood these, how are they superior to a normal everyday knife for cheese?

>> No.14135363

I'm guessing that when you cut cheese, it gets stuck to the side of your knife, so you can't do lots of thin slices quickly. So with the holes it's more likely to just fall off and let you slice fast like a mad cunt.

Chopping and stabbing are using completely different movements of the knife and are facilitated by different geometries.
Same can be said for slicing.
Shaving is a subset of slicing and again is facilitated by different blade geometries than slicing.
Dicing, circumscribing, and carving are all complex actions that I will not deal with here.
Throwing is a class of its own.

There are many different possible knife geometries and each is suited to different specific tasks. There is no general knife without major comprimises.
Therefore, it is reductionistic and misleading to call them all the same action.

I just use mine for pizza dough, it's the best gadget I've got by a mile. In that same vein, getting a piece of mild steel cut to fit your oven is a great kitchen tool, although maybe it doesn't count because the ones you can actually buy are 3-4 times the price because some retard wrote "baking steel" on it, don't fit your oven, and for some reason that means it's worth more.

Good posts. Bench scrapers especially are the best thing ever. They're great for handling dough, and people who use their knives as cutting board scrapers are psychopaths.

Spoons with a flat edge are way more useful for scraping the bottom of the pan. Wood is definitely the best, though. Putting plastic in your food is kind of gross and metal stuff can't be used for scraping.

I feel quality here makes a world of difference. It needs to be rigid enough to hold anything slippery and the one I chose also has some semi-spiky nubs at the end to further increase grip.

I wouldn't say any pair

Some pinch
Some have that retarded clip that hold them closed.

Just a decent build pair of tongs are sufficient.
I was a chef for 5 years in a steakhour and used a large pair of tongs, they were so useful for most tasks, from the charcoal grill, picking up trays, nabbing waiters asses and spinning on my finger.

The kicthen ended up bulk buying the specific ones I had because they were relatively cheap.

At home I have a pair with removable silicone ends, which makes cleaning them easy.
