I know how to slice vegetables. Trust me, I. Early in my career I any lowly prep cook. I felt part of a substantial system, at a very big kitchen, that fed 15,000 people TWICE a business day! My job was to cut vegetables, all day every day. I did this for months! From six most morning to five in the evening, nothing but onions, carrots, celery, peppers. I spent HOURS cutting. When you spend much time with a knife in your hand, setting up to find the methods that work efficiently and quickly, as well as those that will together with elbow and wrist disappointments. With hundreds of hours holding a sharp blade, I was able to give this much thought. There are specific strategies for holding and using the knife that will give more consistent results with greater speed and accuracy, while saving wear and tear on your figure. These techniques take into consideration the grip, the knife-hand, and the non-knife hand. The Grip - Automobiles and most effective grip for using a blade is not the way most people hold the blade. Most often, I see home cooks holding their knife like a club or a tennis racket, with all fingers wrapped around the handle. The problem with the club grip is that the blade can spin within your hand. It's potentially dangerous to be cutting vegetables and have the sharp edge of that steel suddenly lunge for your non-knife hand. The blade should always be at a 90 degree angle on the cutting board and strangling the handle with all your fingers makes this difficult maintain. The correct way to hold a chefs knife is by pinching the knife between thumb and forefinger just looking at where the handle meets the knife. This part of the knife referred to as the 'Bolster'. This particular pinch on the metal part with the knife, your other three fingers can then wrap around the handle. The first bend of your index finger should rest on the spine of the blade and extend down the portion. It's an important part of understanding how to cut vegetables to have the safest and most effective grip on your knife, but will be the motion or way for using the knife that will give you consistently cut things which will then cook at the same rate. 'Consistency of cut is consistency of cook', I'm provided to saying. One of the most effective ways to assure all your merchandise is cut the same size is when the knife as steady as possible during the set-up. Instead of lifting the blade off the cutting board with each stroke, it's simpler employ the Tip Fulcrum Method. The Tip Fulcrum Method simply translates to , you keep the tip of the knife in contact the actual cutting board and use it as a balance point for your own cutting. This extends the knife hand not smart. Its only job is to maintain ones tip of the knife down, and cut with a circular motion. Up, down, forward, and return. It's like dipping water from a bucket with a spoon, not directly up and down, but slightly circular to take associated with the sharp cutting tool. Now it's the non-knife hand merely consider the brains of your operation. When the tip Fulcrum method with the knife-hand meets the 'kung-fu grip' with the non-knife hand, then a cutting becomes easier and safer. All the fingers of the non-knife hand should be curled toward your palm, looking like some type of martial arts punch, thus the kung-fu grip as I call it. The knife will be guided by the guts knuckle of the non-knife hand, that dictate the increment of the outages. The whole system works accurately and efficiently when given some practice. Suitable grip on the knife, along with a circular Tip Fulcrum method, supported through knuckle of the non-knife hand moving in the increment of your desired cut, becomes effortless after some practice. I could even do it blindfolded now! It's not a flowery or expensive knife that will demonstrate how to cut vegetables, it's procedure. While this two-handed technique feels awkward to outlets at first, they eventually find that must be the safest and the majority accurate way to achieve excellent results.
