Junior Chef Cutlery
Up-in-coming chefs can benefit from having their own collection of kitchen knives, gadgets and tools. Williams-Sonoma wants to help instill a love of all things culinary in youngsters, and the Junior Chef collection helps encourage young cooks to develop their cooking skills. From nonstick cookware to bakeware to junior-sized wood tools, a gourmet-in-training will enjoy having special cooking gear designed to fit smaller hands. Don’t forget to accessorize the adult cooks’ cutlery options in the kitchen too.
Working with domestic or international cheese demands expert slicing, spreading and serving. Explore the many options available in cheese knives, designed to handle hard and soft cheeses as well as spreadable flavored cheese. Cheese knives are available with handles in various materials, including marble, olivewood, stainless-steel and natural water-buffalo bone. The spreader is ideal for working with soft cheese, while the distinctive fork makes easy work of transferring cheese from a serving plate to individual plates. The special pronged knife expertly spears chunks of hard cheese or enables you to slice it. The server is perfectly sized for sliding under slices of cheese for effortless serving.
A full knife set is one of the most important possessions a cook will own, and most chefs safeguard their knives carefully to keep them in pristine condition. A variety of knife sets are available, in different sizes and styles. Sleekly modern, yet delivering all of the cutting precision necessary, blades made of high-carbon stainless-steel with stainless-steel handles will appeal to many cooks. Self-sharpening knives utilize a special technology that keeps each implement at its sharpest. Some blocks even feature built-in sharpeners that actually sharpen knives every time you put them into the block or pull them from it. Some sets also include kitchen shears and steak knife sets to round out a cook’s cutlery collection.
Along with cutlery, cutting boards are another important kitchen implement to consider. These prep surfaces are available in a variety of materials, including natural wood, slate, and NSF-certified polypropylene, which is both non-slip and hygienic. Wood grains available include maple, cherry, walnut, and olivewood. When choosing cutting boards, the materials will complement kitchen decor and the cutlery used. For example, a plank cutting board made from olivewood is ideal for cutting and serving cheeses or breads. This cutting board has a food-safe finish that is not only safe in the kitchen, it protects the wood effectively. Cutting boards with wells are effective for collecting meat juices. Have a cutting board monogrammed to personalize it.
It’s hard to underestimate the importance of keeping knives sharp. With regular use, knives naturally lose their pristine sharpness, which can contribute to safety issues in the kitchen. Keep cutlery sharp with knife sharpeners. These gadgets are designed to take the guesswork out of sharpening knives. Electric designs sit on the counter with slots for positioning the knife blades. Within seconds, you can sharpen and hone your blades at the perfect angle. Both straight and serrated blades can be effortlessly sharpened. Cooks preferring a manual process can choose a manual sharpener that delivers a razor-sharp result.
With an extensive collection of cutlery, every cook needs efficient and convenient knife storage. Standard knife blocks are one option, but a variety of other choices are also available. Explore distinctive knife storage such as magnetic blocks, wall-mounted magnetic knife holders and in-drawer knife storage in blocks and trays. Choose the storage option that fits your kitchen space and style. Special blade guards are also available to cover individual knives to keep them safe. Having the right tool for the job makes cooking easier and more enjoyable for chefs of all ages.
