Buying kitchen knives one by one can be a challenging and time consuming task. Even if you have already picked them, there is a big chance that they won’t have the same design and could spoil the looks of your kitchen a little bit. Or course not all consumers are design freaks, but buying a complete knife set at once with already selected kitchen knives has numerous advantages.
- It’s cheaper than buying knives one by one. I have analyzed several 10+piece knife sets on the market and calculating the difference between price of individual items and whole sets is usually about 50% in favor of knife sets.
- Knives have the same design. Some knives look modern, and some come with more traditional designs. It’s always a hard task to find individual ones from several manufacturers that would look the same.
My guide to the best kitchen knife set:
There are literally hundreds of quality knife sets on the market, so finding the best one is too often a time consuming task. I have analyzed several different products that are available on the market right now, and I have ranked them based on numerous online customer testimonials, reviews, their price, features, and design.
I believe all of them listed below are great buys, but the final decision mostly comes down to personal preference and budget.
Chicago Cutlery 1109176 DesignPro Review
Chicago Cutlery 1109176 DesignPro is the best rated product on my website at the moment and I believe that it offers the best value for the money. There are 13 items included in package and it’s the most affordable set on this list.
Included items are 8-inch chef knife, 7-inch Santoku knife, 8-inch serrated bread knife, 5-inch scalloped utility knife, 3.25-inch parer knife, 2.75-inch peeler knife, 4 steak knives, sharpening steel, and kitchen shears. Everything you need wrapped up in a single affordable package.
Chicago Cutlery also provides full lifetime warranty on all products, and that really says a lot about their quality and reputation of a brand.
Wusthof Classic Review
When it comes to kitchen knives, Wusthof is one of the world’s best brands with established reputation all across the world. Wusthof company was founded more than 200 years ago, so they have much more experience than most other knife brands in the world.
Knives included: chef’s, paring, utility, bread, and sandwich knives. With an addition of 8-inch sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and classic block made of oak, it’s a complete package that can fit into any kitchen.
Just like the majority of Wusthof products, their Classic 8-piece knife set comes with a lifetime warranty and can last a lifetime. All knives can be washed in the dish washer, but hand washing is recommended just in case. The only downside of this set is its above average price. It’s the most expensive product on this list, but if a size of your budget is not a problem, it could be the best buy.
Mercer Culinary Genesis Review:
If the 2 products listed above feature a traditional design, I feel that I have to complete the list with a futuristic and stylish knife set. If your kitchen looks modern and futuristic, I’m sure that design of the Mercer Culinary Genesis set won’t let you down.
Unlike the 2 products listed above, this kitchen knife set only includes 5 knives and a modern block made of glass. Knives included: 3-1/2-inch paring, 5-inch utility, 8-inch chef’s, 8-inch bread, and 6-inch boning.
Black Santoprene nonslip handles are incorporated in all 5 knives. Blades are forged from single-piece German steel, so you can expect them to stay sharp for years to come. You can also purchase it online and have it delivered with no extra costs.
So this is it. I’m sure that I will add more knife sets on my list of recommendation in the near future, so you’re welcome to check back any time. Feel free to add your comment down below and let me know what’s your favorite knife set and why.
