  1. so is best to cut all meat with a pull or draw cut. how does everyone else decide how they should cut meat basically
  2. Only if you are a sushi chef. the above test kitchen is not a sushi chef
  3. this is what i found .....that is why i said pull cut. Super Quick Video Tips: How Not to Mangle Your Meat when Portioning with a Chef's Knife 30,607 views 1892SHARESAVE America's Test Kitchen also at Stack exchange says Next, you should use the sharpest, narrowest, and longest blade that you have (those are in order of importance, so if your chef's knife is way sharper than your slicer, use it). Your knife should be sharp enough that you don't really have to press down at all in order to cut the meat -- the weight of the blade should be providing enough force. The cuts you make will be the same as if you were slicing a roast. Use the longest possible stroke, smoothly moving the entire length of your blade through the cut. Generally, cutting by starting at the base of the blade and pulling towards you will allow the smoothest movement. If you don't make it all the way through in one stroke, restart the cut from the base of the blade as many times as you need to, rather than following with a push cut. (On the last little bit, to completely separate the portion, you can get away with it, though.) S ee all say pull. but say with chicken i see push cut and pull cuts how does one decide what to use? Or with any meat how do you decide what cut knife to use.
  4. really need help on this question. i have read thick pieces you should use a pull thats what butchers do. any advice would be appr.
  5. I think i posted in the wrong section before so i am going to post it here again .sorry. when cutting meats is there a certain cutting motion you use with knife for different cuts of meats. Been reading for meats you should pull back knife,but also seen push cut for some meats. Is there certain meats that require different cutting motions? If so could you explain? Example ,i have seen is chicken strips some use pull cut to slice into stripes and some use a push cut to slice into stripes.......why the difference.?

  7. i need some advice in cutting jelly donuts in half .......yes i know you shouldn't cut them in half...... i have tried cutting with a serrated knife and i have a mess each time with the jelly oozing out,any one know of a way to help avoid some of this mess or ideas. thanks
  8. thats what i did with a cherry pie and several other pies..... used a smooth edge and had trouble and then tried with a serrated still problems,thats why i came here to get some advice....
  9. been googling this and seems like i see serrated and also a smooth edge knife being used to cut fruit pies. just was curious to know why would use one over the other.
  10. when slicing a pie,is one knife better than the other for slicing?........... knifes being.... either serrated or smooth edge? ( fruit pies or pecan pies)
  11. hey guys.....just got a email back from craftsy . i asked them the question why he used a serrated knife using the cutting tech. that you would use with a chef knife. the answers was because the serrated knife he used in the video is much less serrated than a serrated knife that will cut bread or a dense material.:)
  12. i guess the correct answer might be that a serrated knife can be used in the fashion i had mention instead of saying just sawing........and yes i did tell you but didnt give a link,but you could look it up, not turning this into point fingers. thanks every one else for the help.
  13. so if was the case from the very beg.when i asked why didnt every one say what you said: " Because that's a fast and easy way to cut tomatoes and get through the skin (which can be tough and cause problems if your knife isn't sharp enough)". i am just saying:)
  14. i am chilled out......i just dont get why first a serrated knife is suppose to be for sawing and now its ok to use like a chef knife with chef knife cuts. trying to understand the knife styles and what they are used for or shall i say the cutting tech. i dont think thats wrong when you are starting out in the knife world. thanks ....... i dont believe there is no right way to do things if so than why do they have different knives for different cutting. using a serrated knife with a push cut ...how is the cut at the bottom suppose to come in contact with board if its scalloped vs a straight edge blade. its like cutting hair...you cut with scissors but try to cut with a pair of thinning shears ....good luck...meant for thinning only.;)
  15. "The cuts he demonstrates are standard and can done with an ordinary knife as well as his serrated knife. " how is the cuts he makes can be done with a serrated knife be right? i agree his cuts he demonstrates are standard. yes i agree different chefs have different methods ,but using a serrated knife like he does...like i describe is to me not right. we are suppose to learn from chefs or get some knowledge ....how does one justify the way he uses the serrated knife is right.
