What is the best knife to cut tomatoes with?

With its toothlike edge, a serrated knife easily cuts through foods with tough skin and a soft interior, like bread and citrus. It cuts with a saw-like motion, which requires less pressure than a smooth blade. This makes a serrated knife the best choice for slicing tomatoes, hands down.

Do you use serrated knives for tomatoes?

While serrated knives do tend to cut tomatoes better than a plain edge knife (unless it is very, very sharp), not all serrated knives will do the trick. Steak knives and other general use knives tend to be too thick to execute a paper-thin tomato slice. Slices also tend to stick to tall, standard kitchen knives.

Why do kitchen knives get dull?

The steel the knife is made from is far harder than anything you would normally cut; therefore the dulling effect on the cutting edge of the knife is very low. The harder the material a knife comes in contact with the faster it will dull.

Are tomato knives sharp?

While you can cut tomatoes with a chef’s knife (in fact, knife sharpeners sometimes use tomatoes as a test), your blade has to be ultra-sharp to do a good job. Because tomatoes have thin skins but soft, delicate flesh underneath, anything less than sharp won’t get through the skin easily.
