Hamilton Beach Electric 74275 Carving Black Knife Review 2018

What is there in the world without a perfectly made Cuban sandwich which gives you the crispy slices of Cuban bread, a lot of mustard and mayo, tangy pickle, sliced cheese and of course, a mouthful juicy, sliced pork and ham?

My customers always tell, “Those slices of meat have soaked up all the flavor. How do you do that, Miss Marlie?”  I always answer, “It’s the slice itself.”

How the slices can be so good by themselves, right? Isn’t there any special spice, I have used? The answer is “no” in a word. I say, “Any meat can be tastier than before if you can get perfectly thin out them.” If the slice is thinned correctly, all the portion can absorb the flavor evenly which makes the best sandwich.

However, neatly and thinly sliced bread and meat take a lot of experience. Besides the hours of practices, you need a sharp carving knife.

Talking about a sharp, I mean, a very sharp electric carving knife, I must say about Hamilton Beach Carving Knife of 74275 series.

Hamilton Beach Electric Carving Knife:

This electric carving knife has a very different way of performance than other carving knives. As a grill chef, I have used a bunch of knives and blades of different brands, various features, and diverse performances.

Some chefs do it in an old-school way and use regular carving knife which takes hours and patience. Conversely, I always preferred something reliable and quick. As a result, I have placed electric carving knives at the top of my list. This reason has made me use a lot of electronic carving cutter.

That is why I know the difference between a good and a dull knife very well. Now I have to only stare at a knife to guess about its performance. Then, what makes the best electric knife? The brand or the quality of the raw material?
