1. Corded vs cordless:
If you're trying to decide between a kitchen knife and a tableside carving one, think about what you need it for. If it's going to be used tableside, will you have access to an outlet or do you need a cordless model? Keep in mind that cordless knives will eventually run out of battery and will require charging while those that plug into an outlet will always be ready to go. Also, if you choose a corded model, make sure the cord is long enough so it can reach both your workspace and the outlet location.
Small tasks, such as cutting cheese, and large tasks like carving roasts or bread may be completed by electric knives with 8- to 10-inch blades. There are many electric knives in this range. Some electric knives come with two types of blades (one for meat, one for bread). It's a lovely choice if you can keep track of both. However, good knives were able to manage most activities with just one type of blade in our experiments.
3. Ease of use:
Many electric knives only work when you press a button or pull a trigger. If possible, test the knife yourself before buying to see if you have a preference for one style over another. Additionally, we found that large finger guards on the blades makes it easier to put them in and take them out for cleaning purposes.
A storage case might not be necessary, but it can come in handy. The electric knife's cords and handles (whether attached or for charging) take up a lot of space, so it can be difficult to store with your other knives. If you don't use the electric knife often, keeping it in a case makes it much easier to find and less likely to become damaged over time.
