Perfect Paring Knives for Precision Tasks
Paring knives are one of the most commonly used blades in the kitchen. These small knives can help you complete precise tasks such as peeling vegetables, trimming excess, or even slicing small fruits and veggies to prepare a meal. They're best when they're razor-sharp, but every knife dulls over time and needs an upgrade. If you're looking for the very best collection of paring knives to perform precision cutting tasks at your kitchen counter, the JCPenney line of paring knives has exactly the blade you need.
Why You Need a Paring Knife
You'd be surprised how many people don't have a paring knife in their collection. It's a major oversight, as these are important blades to have handy. They're perfect for easily slicing through all kinds of fruits and veggies, though they're best when used for softer fruits and vegetables. Avoid using them for produce such as potatoes, parsnips, celery root, carrots, and the like.
They're also effective at peeling items ranging from thick-skinned oranges to paper-thin apples or onions. Plus, these knives' tips are just as razor-sharp as their blade edge. This makes them ideal for precision cutting work such as removing the tips from strawberries, deveining shrimp, or taking the pith out of hot peppers to make them more palatable for those bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers.
A Knife Every Home Chef Should Own
Most professional chefs cite paring knives as one of four knives every home chef should own, the others being a full-sized chef's knife, a serrated bread knife, and a boning knife. With a blade that's less than 4 inches long, these knives are useful for detail-oriented cutting jobs. Just remember to always use the right knife for the right job and know when the paring knife will come in handy.
