Once you’ve cooked your meat to perfection, the last thing you want is for it to be all ruined by a poor carving knife! You want a knife that will do your meal justice, and create an end result that is just perfect.
There are two main types of knife: manual knives and electric knives. While some people prefer the control that you get from manual knives, an electric knife is quicker and easier, especially if you are cutting brisket cut meat.
Electric knives are also ideal for people with mobility issues, because they require significantly less physical effort than manual knives.
When choosing the ideal carving knife for brisket, you want something that is comfortable and easy to use. It’s important the blade is firm and slices smoothly, as cutting against the grain of the meat can ruin the taste and texture of your brisket.
So, what are the best electric carving knives for Brisket? We’ll take a closer look.

#1. Cuisinart CEK-40 Electric Knife
This offering comes from Cuisinart, a well-known and well respected name in the small applianced industry. Cuisinart have a great reputation for producing high-quality products that produce great results, at a great price.
This electric knife set comes with a stylish wooden block storage tray so that it can be put away neatly, or left on your kitchen top. It comes with two different blades, including a bread blade and carving blade. The carving blade is the best for cutting brisket, however it’s great to have the convenience of being able to use this product for other uses.
The knife also features an ergonomic handle meaning it is is comfortable to hold and use. You can get a good grip on it, which allows you to cut the brisket more effectively.
The knife and the handle or both BPA free. BPA is a type of toxin that is sometimes found in Kitchenware products, so it is good that this design does not feature any.
The knife is easily activated with just the press of a button, and can also be easily locked with a safety button to make sure there are no accidents. This is perfect for families with children, as it makes sure that your family is safe.

#2. Hamilton Beach 74250 Carve ’n’ Set Knife
If you are looking for an affordable way to try out an electric knife for carving brisket, then this option from the brand Hamilton Beach may be a good option.
This knife features a simple, white design. It is small and relatively lightweight, meaning it won’t take up too much room in your kitchen. It also comes with a storage case which is ideal for safe storage in the cupboard.
The included blade is ideal for cutting brisket as well as bread and soft cheese. If you want a knife that can cut very dense ingredients, such as hard cheddar, you might find that the blade on this product is a bit too flimsy.
As well as the knife, the Hamilton Beach Carve ’n’ Set Knife also comes with a fork with an ergonomic handle. You can use this to keep the brisket steady as you cut it. The knife cuts extremely effectively, without needing to apply much pressure at all to the brisket.
The knife blade is dishwasher safe, so after a big dinner party, you can simply throw it in the dishwasher and it will be perfectly clean!
#3. Black +Decker 9-Inch Electric Carving Knife
This offering from Black and Decker is a great choice for carving brisket as well as other meats, breads and cheeses.
Its black design is sleek and stylish, ideal for keeping in the kitchen or perhaps next to the barbecue. The price is also affordable, and it presents great value.
It also features an ergonomic handle which means it is comfortable to use and easy to grip. This allows you to easily and comfortably use the knife, and means it is a great option for people with reduced mobility.
The 9” stainless steel blade is serrated to allow it to cut rapidly, and the high quality material used means that it does not need to be sharpened. You can simply unlock the blade and then place it in the dishwasher – perfect for a quick clean up.
The Black + Decker knife also features a one-touch on/off button that allows you to easily turn the knife on or off when needed. This is very easy to use.
And the winner is…
Each of these options are a sensible choice for cutting brisket. In addition, all three can also be used to cut other things from turkeys to bread and even non-food items such as foam. However, they are all particularly suited to the task of cutting brisket, allowing for close control and a precise cut.
Of the three options, the Cuisinart is my pick for the best. This is because the affordable price tag does not mean they have skimped on any quality, and this is an excellent product. The additional bread attachment means it has flexible uses, and the fact that it is entirely BPA free means you can use this with confidence.
I also appreciate the three year warranty for this product.
