When it comes to enjoying a good Jamón, you not only have to pay attention to its quality, but you also you have to take care of the tools needed to cut it and at Enrique Tomás we are going to help you know how to buy a ham holder for your home. If you follow these recommendations, as soon as you find yours and place your piece of ham or ham shoulder on it, you will see that you have made a good choice!
The ham stand is an indispensable element for cutting ham and that is why it is so important to choose it properly. The aspects you have to pay attention to are:
Lightweight Ham is one of the star products of the Spanish gastronomy, a... are more manageable, but they are also more unstable, and since you usually don’t have to carry them around, buy one with a thick base and rubber studs on the bottom to make sure it doesn’t slip. However, if you are going to have to move your ham holder continuously, opt for a lighter base and a holder that comes with a cover, so it will be easier to make the trip with your ham holder on your back. Some of them also have a folding arm to take up less space.
This factor is not only linked to the use that will be given to the ham holder, but also to the type of product that will be consumed regularly. The longer the base, the more stable it will be, but it will not be necessary to buy a very large one if you are only going to cut ham shoulders (they are lighter and smaller that the jamón), you can opt for a smaller one.
The quality of the materials is important, regardless of whether you are going to use your ham stand a lot or not. Buy a stainless steel one and, regarding the base, you have two options: wooden or plastic base. Whichever one you choose, the important thing is that it can be easily cleaned and that it is good enough not to break at the first change.
The cost of the ham stand is closely linked to the type of material it is made of and, for example, if the base is made of solid wood it will be more expensive. Also, there are some models that have a newer design and this is also paid for. At Enrique Tomás we have three types of ham stands: one that is cheaper and simpler for domestic use, another that is intermediate for domestic use but with a more modern design and another that is more elegant and has a regulator that can be adapted to the size of the hamshoulder or ham and it rotates the ham piece so that you can move it around without taking it out completely. This last one is the most recommended for professionals.
We have just talked about the size regulator that our premium ham holder has, but this is not indispensable and will depend on the use that you are going to give it. What you do have to look for is a ham holder with a rotating spike on the top that allows you to comfortably fix it.
Finally, remember that the ham holder is a tool that, if cared for properly, usually lasts a long time, so make sure you clean it properly. You can wipe it down with a clean damp cloth bathed in water, soap and vinegar and, as soon as you finish, wipe it down with water only. Then, dry it carefully to prevent it from spoiling, and it will be as good as new when you use it!
In short, you have to pay attention to these aspects and not forget that there is no rule that determines that some hams are better than others, but this will depend on you and your needs. Follow our advice and, as soon as you start using yours, you’ll see how well you did in following our recommendations.
