Roanoke, VA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, home cooks will roast the traditional turkey, ham or beef roast. After cooking for hours home cooks will slice the food and make the grand presentation. A sharp carving knife is essential to make clean slices of a large turkey, ham or roast. Consumer advocate Mark Jala recently completed his 2013 carving set reviews and awards the best carving sets in 3 price ranges.
The traditional carving set consists of an 8" or 10" slender knife and matching fork. Consumer advocate Mark Jala who writes for Your Cutlery Helper, says that while the holidays are great for bringing out the carving set, it’s best to leave it out and use it often. "Why is it that many carving sets are only brought out during the holidays? Anytime you have a large roast, ham, or bird, it’s best to use the sharpest knife in the kitchen, and that should be the carving set," said Mr. Jala. "When you bring out a nice cutting instrument, it sets the tone for the meal. Bring out the carving set and watch the family perk up to attention."
Mr. Jala recently posted on the Your Cutlery Helper website his 2013 carving set review and awards the Best Cutlery Sets. Covering low priced carving sets to premium priced sets, there is something for everyone. Mr. Jala says "If it’s time to buy a new carving set for yourself or someone else as a gift, excellent quality carving sets are not going to break the bank."
In the low priced category, Mr. Jala awards the Wusthof Silverpoint II and Victorinox Forged carving sets. "Wusthof is well known for making high quality and expensive kitchen knives. The Silverpoint II carving set is rather new and has a street price around $50.00," says Mr. Jala. "One of my favorite brands of all time is Victorinox. Their forged product line offers added weight and excellent craftsmanship. The Victorinox forged carving set features a 10" carving knife with matching fork for a street price around $100.00."
In the medium price range the Henckels Professional S wins the nod. Mr. Jala says "Henckels makes excellent cutlery and the Professional S carving set is classic excellence. Henckels has their unique steel formula, forging method and Friodur ice hardening. All combined the Professional S carving set is a durable wonder."
Any cutlery "Best of" list would be amiss if Shun cutlery was not mentioned. Mr. Jala gladly sings the praises of Shun when he says "Shun makes the kind of product that is superb craftsmanship in both function and design. The Damascus style 33 layers of VG-10 steel bring back the ancient samurai sword design. With a 16 degree edge on the blade it is extraordinarily sharp and looks like it belongs in a museum. With a street price of $270.00, it’s worth saving up for this gem."
