When it comes to Pesach cooking, having the proper kitchen gadgets can make all the difference in the world. Last week, we highlighted the wide range of peelers we sell, along with some other products that can make Pesach preparation easier and more efficient. While peelers are great for any dish involving fruits or vegetables, when cutting meats a high-quality knife is a must.
Professional and amateur chefs have hailed the Wusthof Gourmet 10” Super Slicer, available from The Peppermill for just $74.99, as the ideal solution for any kosher gourmet dish. Whether you’re cutting a spongy Pesach cake or slicing a tough piece of brisket, this kitchen gadget from Wusthof cuts neatly and easily with a minimal amount of effort. The Wusthof Super Slicer can be placed in the dishwasher, but the manufacturer recommends washing it by hand to extend its longevity.
This high-quality kitchen gadget features a rounded tip and a serrated blade measuring ten inches. The extra-wide blade is stamped from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel for a thinner, lighter knife that can be used for anything from crusty roasts to soft-skinned vegetables.
Though the blade of a knife certainly affects its usability, the handle plays a large role as well. It must be easy to use, durable enough to withstand extensive force, and strong enough to cut through a wide range of kosher gourmet foods. Designed by professional chefs, the handle on the Wusthof Super Slicer meets all of the above criteria. The full-tang, three-rivet handle is made of synthetic polypropylene and is precisely tapered to ensure the best possible cut. It is considered to be extremely ergonomic and practically indestructible.
The Super Slicer is definitely one of the best knives we’ve ever come across, but at The Peppermill we also offer a number of other items from Wusthof to meet all your cooking needs. The 3-inch paring knife is ideal for dicing and slicing fruits and vegetables, while the kitchen scissors can cut just about anything, including bone. Both serrated and straight-edged basic utility knives from Wusthof are available in blade sizes ranging from 4.5” to 6”. The manufacturer’s 8-inch carving knife is particularly suited for Pesach kosher gourmet cooking as it is designed to seamlessly slice any cut of meat, from a brisket to a French roast.
