                Types of Knives

• Chef’s Knife, or French Knife- All-purpose knife is
  used for a variety of chopping, slicing, and mincing

  usually rigid.
• Filleting Knife- Used for filleting fish, similar in
  shape and size to a boning knife, but it has a
  flexible blade.

• Slicer- Used for slicing cooked meat. Has a long
  blade with a round or pointed tip. May be
  flexible or rigid and may be taper-ground or
  have a fluted edge that consists of hollow-
  ground ovals.
• Cleaver- Used for chopping, heavy enough to
  cut through bone. Rectangular blade and varies

    Large Equipment
• Kettles and Steamers- Heat is applied
  over a much larger area
• Steam-Jacketed Kettle- Circulates
  steam through the walls.
• Tilting Kettle- used for braising and
• Pressure Steamer- Water is heated
  under pressure in a sealed
  compartment, allowing it to reach higher
  than boiling temperature (212 degrees F
  at sea level)
• Convection Steamer- Steam is generated
  in a boiler and then piped to the cooking
  chamber, where it is vented over the
       Large Equipment
   Stoves, Ranges, and Ovens
Ranges- Gas or electric
• Open Burner- Allows for easy adjustment of
• Flat-Top- Consist of a thick plate of cast-iron or
 steel set over the heat source.
• Ring-Top- Consist of concentric rings or plates
 that can be removed to widen or close the
 opening, supplying more or less direct heat.
• Induction Burner- Based on the transference
 of an electric current into a magnetic vibration.
 The burner stays cool. Use steel or iron. No
 copper and aluminum they will not respond.

• Convection Oven- Hot air is forced through
 fans to circulate around the food, cooking is
 evenly and quickly.
• Conventional/Deck Ovens- The heat source
 is located on the bottom, underneath the deck,
 or floor, of the oven.
• Slow Cookers/Combi Stoves- Used
 extensively in Europe. The stove cooks at low
 temperatures, and may also steam foods. Can
 be used for both cooking foods and holding
 them at the correct service temperature.
Can be operated at either cool smoking or
hot smoking temperatures.

Griddles and Grills

• Griddle- Similar to a flat-top range top, a
griddle has a heat source located beneath a
thick plate of metal, generally cast-ion or steel.
• Grills, Broilers, and Salamander- In a
grill, the heat source is located below the rack;
in a broiler or salamander, the heat source is
