The Messermeister Meridian Elite 4-Piece Gourmet Set contains all the kitchen knife essentials. These knives are fully forged and have a hand-polished "Elite" edge. The "POM" handle of the Meridian Elite line are triple riveted to the tang of the blade.
Included in the Messermeister Meridian Elite 4 Piece Gourmet Set are an 8" Chef’s Knife, 9" Scalloped Bread Knife, 6" Utility Knife and a 3.5" Paring Knife.
Longer blades can be more difficult to control when using larger knives. The shorter 8" blade of the chef’s knife is the most popular length because of the greater control it offers while you are cutting.
The 9" Messermeister Bread knife can easily help you cleanly cut your breads, pastries, and fruits without crushing the interior. Teeth on the edge of the knife allow the blade to cut through tough outer skins on the food without putting too much pressure on the knife.
For every day cutting and chopping of medium to small foods the Messermeister 6" Utility knife is up to the task. This medium length blade features a slightly curved straight edge that is ideal for cutting and chopping fruits and vegetables.
Smaller cutting and chopping tasks require a smaller knife. The Messermeister Meridian Elite Paring knife features a 3.5" straight blade that is ideal for intricate cutting. Shorter blades allow for a greater amount of control for more detailed cuts.
Properly caring for your Messermeister knife is very important, and will give more life to your blades. Maintaining a sharp edge on your blade and keeping food from drying to it can help prevent injury while using your knife. After you are finished with your knives, clean them with warm soapy water, fully dry and safely store them in a blade guard, knife block, or an in-drawer storage tray. Do not wash your knives in the dishwasher or let them soak in water.
