I would like to buy a ham holder, but i don´t know which one to choose. Can you give an advice?
Let's look at the factors you need to consider when seeking the perfect ham holder.
It Is Stable
It's crucial to ensure that the base of your ham holder does not slide around when you make your cut.
It Allows You to Cut Comfortably
To cut comfortably requires being able to cut at certain angles. It's always preferable that the ham should be held so that the cutter does not have to make cuts at awkward angles, increasing the chance of a poor cut or an accident.
Storage and Transportation is Easy
The best option is to buy a ham holder with folding arms and a bag which you can use to transport it easily and comfortably.
It Is Made From Quality Materials
If you're an occasional ham aficionado, you might be able to get a perfectly adequate ham holder for €30. But for cutting a lot or often, you'll need to look at materials and construction to make sure your ham holder can last the course.
Undoubtedly, this is related to the question of stability. Simply put, a ham holder with a larger base area will tend to be more stable.
Skewer and Clamp
Most types of ham holder have at least one vertical skewer in the area of the stifle. This is the easiest sway to fix the ham in place, since its own weight helps to secure it while it's being cut.
Your ham holder is a lifetime investment. To prevent oxidation of the metal parts, as we have said, all metal parers should be made from stainless steel.
As with almost everything in life, the price of a ham holder depends on the materials and craftsmanship with which it is made.
