When you get to the point where your kitchen knives are just not cutting it anymore, it's time to invest in some new ones and if there's a name synonymous with kitchen utensils, it's Salter.
This set of five has a knife suitable for any situation in the kitchen and comprises an 8in chef knife, 8in bread knife, 8in carving knife, 4.5in utility knife and 3.5in paring knife.
The handles are easy-grip and feel soft in the hand but provide a firm hold, so no slipping while cutting. Each knife has a different-coloured handle, too, which makes it easier to choose the right one for the job – and they also look smart in a knife block.
They are incredibly sharp (naturally!) and slice through food with ease which, if you've had your kitchen knives for as long as I have, means you have to be extra careful, but they do give an excellent cut with minimal effort.
The non-stick stainless steel blades make slicing and cutting even easier as they literally glide through food and it also makes them a doddle to clean, too.
At £15.99 they are very good value and should last for years to come.
Note: These knives are not suitable for dishwasher use as the salt will corrode the stainless steel – but hand-washing is a small price to pay for excellent quality and performance.
