Working in a kitchen can be challenging for us left handers. There were a few things I would dread when cooking---slicing vegetables and bread, opening cans, peeling carrots and potatoes, using scissors, measuring utensils and more. I wished for left-handed products to make my life easier. Well, I soon realized there are some high quality, left-handed kitchen items, although they were not always easy to find. Thankfully, there’s a lefty store that helps us solve this problem. We contacted Anything Left Handed to learn more about the left-handed kitchen products they have packaged into sets. These make for some excellent gift ideas for our southpaw cooks and chefs.


#1. Left-Hander's Kitchen Starter Set

Four left-handed items in this package.


Here’s a video from Griffin Occupational Therapy explaining why it’s important for lefties to use left-handed scissors.


#2. Left-Handed Kitchen Essentials Set

This set includes 5 "essential" left-handed kitchen tools, 3 of which are also in the previous set.

Keith Milsom from Anything Left Handed says when it comes to mass-produced knives, “The majority on the market are double bevelled --– moving the cut food away from the knife on both sides. Unfortunately, this often results in an uncomfortable twisting motion for left handers (as well as food that is not cut straight!). So, when you look at most mass-produced knives you see a sort of V-shaped edge —two slanting sides – which form the double bevel below. By using a single bevel on the right-hand side of the blade (as you hold the knife in your left hand) and only sharpening / serrating the knife on the bevelled edge, our knives give left handers a straight clean cut which directs the cut food away on one side of the knife only.”

These knives are produced exclusively for Anything Left Handed by a top Italian manufacturer using high grade stainless steel to ensure the blade sharpness.


#4. Set of 3 Left-Handed Knives With Scalloped Blades And Blue Handles

All 3 of these knives have a scalloped blade, as opposed to the previous set where those 4 knives have bevelled blades.


Keith says, “Our knives may look similar to mass-produced knives (especially our bread knife), but when you try the knives out you will notice how much quicker and easier it is to cut products in a straight line as a lefty. They are the culmination of 60+ years of experience in manufacturing products for left handers – and are manufactured in Italy for quality and consistency.”


#5. Set of 4 Small Left-Handed Kitchen Knives
