J.A. Henckels Premio 18-piece set review:

A kitchen knife set is a great addition to every cook’s arsenal. It’s also a great gift for everyone who cooks his own food. While some of them come with very expensive price tags, the Premio 18-piece is one of the more affordable ones. It only costs about $10 per piece despite the fact that it comes from one of the world’s most famous cutlery brands.

All knives feature handles with a very comfortable feel. They are triple-riveted, ergonomically designed, and very well balanced. Every professional chef can tell you that stability and control are everything, so J.A. Henckels have really done a great job with this set of knives.

Blades are made of stainless steel with satin finish. It doesn’t matter how much money you invest, steel blades don’t stay sharp for ever. Taking them to a professional is just another unnecessary expense, so sharpening steel that it’s included in the package can be a real money saver.

Knives included in package:

  • 3-inch paring knife for slicing and cutting fruits and vegetables.
  • 5-inch utility knife is serrated and it’s a perfect choice when chef’s knife is too large.
  • 6-inch utility knife
  • 7-inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife
  • 8-inch bread knife.
  • 8-inch Carving Knife
  • 8-inch Chef’s Knife
  • 9-inch sharpening steel for keeping the blades sharp.
  • Eight 4.5-inch serrated steak knives.
  • 20-slot knife block is made of hardwood.
  • Kitchen Shears

More info:

There really isn’t much more you could ask for from a kitchen knife set in this price range. Buying knives individually is more expensive on the long run, and it’s definitely a more stressful journey. Buying a complete set can save you time and money.

This knife set is also comes with a full warranty against defects in materials and/or craftsmanship. If you experience any problems, send them back to J.A. Henckels and they will be replaced with no extra charges.
