You know it’s time to get a new set of knives when tomatoes become your enemy, cutting poultry becomes a workout and you find yourself ordering takeout just because the thought of chopping veggies seems so hard.
Dull knives make time in the kitchen needlessly difficult. But investing in those knife sets you see on TV or in department stores is a big — and often costly — decision. Most sets cost upwards of $100, and you usually only get a few knives at that.
Right now, there’s a 15-piece knife set (that’s right, 15) on sale for just $40. Originally $120, you’ll save $80 and get plenty of new culinary inspiration.
The knife bundle includes everything but the kitchen sink: a sleek wooden block holder, long-lasting knife sharpener and a whole library of knives. The set ranges from steak and bread knives to slicing and utility knives. Not to mention, professional-grade kitchen scissors.
“The edges are sharp and there's a knife for every one of your needs,” writes one five-star reviewer. “I've used it to filet a bass, cut open a whole chicken, cut up steak, and cut vegetables without issue and with ease. I didn't expect a knife in this price range to be so sturdy. Overall, very well-made set of knives.”
With this knife set, you’re not just getting quantity, but quality.
Each knife is made from what the brand calls “superior high-carbon German stainless steel” that is corrosion- and oxidation-resistant, so these knives will last decades. Plus, these babies are hand-polished on each side, making them shiny and super sharp.
“For the price this product is very much worth it!” writes another five-star reviewer. “The knives are very sharp and make it easy to cut through anything. Overall they are a good product and worth the money being as knife sets can be very expensive. I would definitely recommend.”
Prone to sore hands? Each knife has an ergonomically designed handle to eliminate discomfort and aide in precision handling — a must especially if you’re known to accidentally cut your fingers from time to time.
This set is for beginners and experienced home chefs alike. It’s an un-intimidating addition to any kitchen.
“I bought this set after moving out on my own for the first time and I'm completely blown away by them,” writes another happy slicer. “I've always enjoyed cooking but always used the cheap knives my parents purchased and for the price I expected these to be more of the same. I was completely wrong, these things make cooking so much easier I didn't realize what I was missing. They're sharp, easy to clean, and look really nice to boot. I really can't think of a single thing I don't like about this set.”
