Knife Test
Summary
The Knife Test Means Using a Sharp Knife Blade to Check a Cooking Product.

 

The Knife Test refers to using the sharp blade of a Paring Knife (or other thin pointed blade) to test a Finish Cooked product for the Desired Level of Doneness.

Generally, the item is done if a knife will slide into it with the gentlest of pressures. A second corollary of the knife test is that the product is done when the knife blade comes out of the product cleanly with out any of the product clinging to it.
