How exactly does a premium chef knife reduce prep time?
The whole concept of premium chef knives can seem perplexing to the new cook. After all, you're just chopping vegetables and meat. But crafting a meal is more than just that, and a poor knife can hinder your ability to do so effectively. A dull blade will plunge and force you to exert more energy, slowing you down and making the cutting much more difficult. In short, it's the small details that make a big difference with proper prep time and an increased flavor profile.
A chef's knife will never be able to completely eliminate food preparation time. But, it will make prep work faster, easier and safer when used correctly. The kind of knife that you choose is important when it comes to reducing food preparation time. A quality blade will make all the difference.
