You would not guess the amount I spent on searching for a perfect yet cheap bread knife. Since my family loves bread and I started making them at home more often now, I really needed to invest in a bread knife. Most of you may think that all bread knives are the same but they aren’t. Trust me I’ve seen a tonnes of kitchen knife sets with terrible bread knives.
Serrated and Scallop Edge
The serrated or scalloped blade edge makes it easier to cut through tough or soft loaves of bread. You can even find yourself saving time in the kitchen. Did you know that you can cut through food that are hard on the outside and soft on the inside with this knife? For example, tomatoes and melons.
For the scalloped blade, avoid the knives that have widely spaced teeth and have thick, rough teeth. Make sure that you purchase a solid knife. If you don’t, it will be hard to cut through tough loaves of bread. You should also look for a bread knife that is at least 10 inches long.
