As a home editor, I’m constantly trolling chefs' websites and social accounts for entertaining inspiration and recipe secrets (and specifically glimpses into their coveted kitchens, with a close eye on the appliances and gadgets they can’t live without). After all, who would know better than those who’ve made a livelihood of prepping and cooking (read: have access to the best and have tried all the rest), and who better to take cues from than the Barefoot Contessa herself?

Suffice it to say I was delighted to see that Wusthof, one of Ina Garten’s better-known essential brands (listed on her website and among her Williams Sonoma picks) slashed its prices, including taking 30% off the brand’s bestselling Gourmet 10-Piece Knife Block Set, just in time for the holidays. Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or someone else, read on to learn more about the knife set that Ina (and many other chefs) consider a cut above the competition, and keep scrolling for more Ina-approved items for gifting this season and beyond.

High-carbon stainless steel meets beautiful, variegated acacia wood for a professional knife set that’s the definition of sharp.

Why is it a good deal?

Premium knife sets don’t come cheap — especially when they’re of esteemed chef-level quality — and the Wusthof Gourmet 10-Piece Knife Block Set, featuring High Carbon Stainless Steel Blades precisely cut with the latest state of the art technology, strikes the perfect balance between form and functionality.

As often is the case with sets, you were already getting a deal compared to what you’d typically spend for each knife individually, and now the Wusthof Gourmet 10-Piece Knife Block Set is marked down an impressive and rare 30% ($223 down from $320, or just shy of $100 off). According to our research, this is the knife set’s lowest Amazon price in history, making it the perfect time to splurge for yourself or a loved one.

Why do I need this?

Wusthof’s german-founded knives are a rite of passage for novice and experienced cooks, a fixture in chefs' carefully curated cutlery collections for over 200 years. This particular set comes with two ¾-in. trimming knives, two ¾-inch paring knives, a 3-in. spear point paring knife, four 1/2" utility knives, a 5-in. serrated utility knife, a 5-in. spreader, a 6-in. cook's knife, and a 9-in. honing steel, including a beautiful acacia wood block for organized (and safer) keeping while also adding a touch of warmth to your countertop.

The stainless steel blades are designed to resist corrosion and dulling; the polypropylene handles to stand up to fading, discoloration, heat and impact. This is all to say the Wusthof Gourmet 10-Piece Knife Block Set is a worthy investment that can be loved for years to come (the brand also offers a limited lifetime warranty for added peace of mind).

What reviewers say

As if receiving Ina Garten’s stamp of approval wasn't enticing enough, Wusthof knives come highly recommended by other professional chefs we’ve spoken to in the past. They’ve also received accolades from Amazon reviewers who reaffirm their sleek design, versatility and durability (meaning these beauties will last).

“Awesome,” echoed this verified shopper. “... They are incredible knives. I am going to invest in a few more pieces to go with this set. I would recommend these to anyone wanting or needing a good quality knife. My daughter even went into an exclusive kitchen store to inquire about the quality. The staff even gave these knives an excellent rating.”

“Could not love them any more,” wrote another five-star fan, who received them as a wedding gift. “The blades stay sharp, we haven't had to sharpen them for 2.5 years. They make dinner prep a breeze. We liked that this knife set is not full, so you can fill it in with the knives you need …”

“Such a joy,” exclaimed a third. “I am really enjoying this knife set. My son-in-law recommended them. He was right! To be able to thinly slice cooked meat is a dream.”

One reviewer even went as far as to deem them “the best knives ever.” “Great price for top quality knives. Very sharp. Makes cutting a breeze ...”

Chop to it! Secure the Wusthof Gourmet 10-Piece Knife Block Set for yourself or your favorite cook during this limited deal, while supplies last.
