Every cook should have a reliable utility knife to complete a variety of different cutting tasks! A kitchen utility knife is considered to be a cross between a paring knife and a slicing knife, making it efficient for slicing softer fruits and vegetables. Thanks to the blade shape of these knives, they cut through products without tearing their soft inner flesh. Since the shape of delicate produce items is preserved, these knives are perfect when prepping toppings that will be set out for display at a salad bar, buffet line, or taco station.
A utility knife generally features a scalloped edge, which helps make a cleaner and more thorough cut through products with a tough outer crust or skin. Use a kitchen utility knife to cleanly slice tomatoes, grapes, and squash. These knives are also great for cutting crusty loaves of bread, halving citrus fruits, cutting large melon rings, and wedging heads of lettuce.
A utility knife is perfect for your day-to-day cutlery tasks. Choose from options with various handle materials, including traditional wood, non-slip grips, and smooth plastic. You’ll also find options with granton edge styles that have air pockets to prevent product from sticking to the blade. To complete your prep station setup, check out our cutting boards
