When’s the last time you replaced your knives? If the answer is “I don’t remember,” it’s high time to get a new set — and a place to store them that isn’t a constantly-jammed drawer in your kitchen.
In one fell swoop, you can get rid of every dangerously dull knife in that drawer and replace them with ones that are actually use-specific. Whether you’re an amateur chef or just love watching cooking shows, everybody needs good, sharp knives if they’re going to take cooking seriously.
The Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Knife Block Set—which is on sale for $132, or $88 off at Walmart—includes a 4.5-inch parer, 6-inch utility, 7-inch santoku, 8-inch slicer, 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch bread knife, and 10-inch honing steel knives, plus an 8-piece steak knife set, kitchen shears, and a maple stained wood block.
The cooking knives are crafted from high-carbon, stain-resistant German steel, while the steak knives are made from Japanese steel. All the knives feature ergonomically contoured Polynesian handles and use a single piece of steel for the blade, bolster, and tang for superior balance and strength. Oh, and they’re 40 percent off.
