A bread knife is a must in any home kitchen. If you've ever had the joy of baking your own fresh bread, or even bringing home a hot loaf from a local bakery, you know that using the wrong knife can quickly destroy the delicate bread.
The best kind of knife to slice through bread will be long and cerate. There are also bread knifes with slicing guides to help you cut even slices. This also means you can choose your thickness of the slice.
If you want to get fancy, you can purchase an electric bread knife that does most of the hard handwork for you. But, it will cost you almost double that of the standard bread knife.
However you slice your bread, I suggest waiting until the loaf has cooled completely before attempting.
Moms, do you use a bread knife when slicing?
