This EatNeat set comes with an 8-inch chef's knife, an 8-inch bread knife, an 8-inch slicing knife, a 4-inch paring knife, and a 5-inch utility knife. The chef's knife is ideal for chopping large vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes and carrots, while the paring knife is better for slicing apples and strawberries. Meanwhile, the utility knife is handy for slicing cheese and cutting sandwiches in half.
Each knife comes with its own protective sheath for extra protection against injury, and has a ceramic coating which prevents food from sticking to the blades. Soft grip handles make the knives more comfortable to hold for long periods, according to the brand.
And while the rainbow color scheme will certainly add a pop of personality to your kitchen, it also helps prevent cross contamination. That way, if you're slicing raw chicken breast with one knife, and chopping up herbs with another, you tell by color alone which one is which without any confusion.
These bestselling knives have more than 7,800 five-star ratings at Amazon thanks to the fact that they are a great value for the price. In fact, one shopper praised how sharp they are, writing that they cut through vegetables and meat "like butter."
Another shopper wrote that the knives are "sharp, slice well, and are easy to handle." What more could you ask for?
