Important Knife Safety Skills

Important Knife Safety Skills

Safety first, friends. Here are a few basic knife safety skills as a reminder:

  1. Use a sharp knife: A dull knife requires more force to cut through food, making it more likely to slip and cause injury. Keep your knives sharp with regular sharpening or honing. (clearly we have you covered in this department)

  2. Hold the knife correctly: Grip the handle firmly with your dominant hand, with your fingers curled around the handle and your thumb resting on the side of the blade. Use your other hand to hold the food steady.

  3. Use a cutting board: Always cut on a stable, non-slip cutting board to prevent the knife from slipping and to protect your countertop.

  4. Cut away from your body: When slicing or chopping, keep the knife blade pointed away from your body, and make sure your fingers are curled under to prevent them from being sliced.

  5. Use a claw grip: When chopping food, use a "claw grip" with your non-dominant hand to hold the food steady and protect your fingers.

  6. Store knives safely: Store knives in a knife block or on a magnetic strip to keep them organized and prevent them from sliding around in drawers.

  7. Wash knives carefully: Always hand-wash knives and dry them thoroughly before putting them away. Never leave knives soaking in the sink, as this can dull the blade and make it more likely to slip.

Stay sharp and stay safe!

Until next time,
