What is the most essential kitchen tool?

The Rada Knife Store Blog


What is the most essential kitchen tool you ask?

In asking that question of say, twenty different people, I would probably get a dozen different answers. But think about it, what is the one kitchen tool for which nothing else will do? If you were suddenly without your measuring spoons, you could substitute a regular teaspoon or tablespoon. If you had no measuring cups, you could easily use a coffee cup. While not precise, you could get pretty close. For a whisk, a fork would do if you had nothing else. But there is a tool for which nothing else will do, and that is your kitchen knife. 

I am a fan of the Food Network show Cut Throat Kitchen. If you have never seen this show, do yourself a favor and watch it. It is both hilarious and educational, a rarity in TV shows today. The Chefs can purchase a sabotage to inflict upon their opponents, and what is the most dreaded sabotage? You guessed it, one opponent buying the right to take away another chef's knives. What else can you use in the kitchen to slice, dice, and cut? With that in mind, our blogs over the next coming months will be featuring the most popular Rada Cutlery Kitchen Knives, with a chance for one lucky reader to win a featured Rada Cutlery Kitchen knife, like the Rada Cutlery Cook's Knife!

We'd love to hear from you. Comment below with questions or share your tips for kitchen essentials. What is your favorite Rada Cutlery product? What makes your culinary life easier?

Enjoy your kitchen!

    Rada knives are the best! I bought my first Rada knife over 30 years ago at a small store run by retirees at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company in Omaha, Nebraska. I continued to buy Rada items and love them! My daughter is getting married in September. She had a knife set on her registry, but I talked her out of it and am getting Rada knives for her. I too think they are great gifts. The peeler, paring knife, and chef’s knife are used constantly at my house. They still look great too! Thanks for a wonderful product!

    The servers are the best! Great for stoneware and cast iron cooking. No residue is left in the pans bc with they way these are designed they lift eggs, cakes, and desserts effortlessly out of the pan. You won’t ever want to use anything else!
