These amazingly handy curved knives are a great addition to any kitchen – if you’re a keen home cook then take a look at some of the reasons you need to get your hands on a mezzaluna knife!
If you don’t own a food processor or if you couldn’t be bothered going to all the rigmarole of setting it up and cleaning it afterward (how does do much stuff get into those teeny little crevices?!) – finely chopping herbs, garlic, ginger, and chilli is a time consuming process. But with a mezzaluna knife, you’ll soon make short work of mountains of ingredients, speeding up your prep time for things such as pesto, tabouleh, salsas, and more.
If you’ve got two hands on the knife, you can’t have your fingers under the blade. This makes a mezzaluna knife a safer choice for people who are just learning knife skills, and for people who may have impaired motor function. The rocking motion means you don’t need to have your fingers holding the ingredients, and the double-handed action gives more control over the direction of the blade.
Things you can do with a mezzaluna As well as chopping herbs, your mezzaluna knife is great for a range of other tasks in the kitchen. Mincing: you can use your mezzaluna knife for mincing garlic, ginger, chilli, and herbs,
but if you add some mince into the mix you can also use it to chop and mix in one go, making dumplings or meatball production SO much faster.
If you need to make a mass of salad, your mezzaluna is going to be your favorite piece of kitchen equipment. Use it for chopping hard-boiled eggs for potato salad, cabbage for coleslaw, or parsley for tabouleh. You can also use it to make quick work of chopping up cooked chicken or pulled pork.
On a sweeter note, if you’re doing a lot of baking, the half-moon knife is awesome for chopping cooking chocolate into chunks, and for chopping nuts and other ingredients like glazed cherries crystallised ginger and dried fruits.
Going back to its roots, the mezzaluna knife is the BEST thing for cutting pizza. No dragging toppings like a pizza wheel and no worries about cutting uneven slices by having to start in the middle like with an ordinary knife.
Because the rocking motion reduces drag, the mezzaluna rocker knife is perfect for other traditionally hard-to-cut items like dough, pies, and quiches, and frittatas. And it’s also perfect for portioning up brownies and other sheet-style cakes.
