When buying kitchen knives quality should be an important thing to take into consideration. If what you need is a knife that won’t see much use, like the ones you buy for camping and use them only once or twice a year, then you can go for it.
But if you’re planning to get a knife you know you’ll use every day at home, I suggest choosing a more qualitative one. The difference between these two is the fact that a dollar store knife won’t slice as well as a bigger brand one.
“These won’t be sharp, and dull knives can be very dangerous,” says Andrea Woroch, consumer and money-saving expert.
