In the fast-paced environment of the professional kitchen, safety is of the upmost importance, especially when it comes to using knives. Knowing which knife to use for which specific purpose both helps reduce accidents and prevents any potentially dangerous cross contamination. That’s why colour-coded knives are such a good idea.
By having different colour handles, you can easily tell which knife needs to be used for any given task. So, you get carving knives, bread knives, and paring knives – all with a different colour handle to help staff determine which to use in any situation.
It also means you can use one colour for butchery of raw meat and a separate colour for cutting cooked meat, in order to help you meet health and safety requirements in the kitchen.
A professional kitchen environment requires a wide range of knives to be used by all staff members, so colour coding is one of the easiest ways of telling them apart. With our superb selection of top-quality knives and cutting implements, you can carry out every necessary job in the kitchen with the minimum of fuss and effort. Slice, dice, carve, cleave and more, with the brightly coloured handles helping to reduce errors and keep your staff safe.
