The key to a chef’s success is not just reliant upon their cooking skills - although that make up a huge part of it. The quality of their tools also plays a huge role in their cooking ability, and if they’re not looked after properly, it’s often one of the many reasons that dishes don’t turn out as good as they usually do and, sometimes, more accidents can occur as a result of poorly maintained tools.

As some of the most dangerous tools in the kitchen, a chef’s knives should be regularly maintained and cared for properly to ensure that they are in good working order to provide the cleanest cuts, as well as be used safely.
