Do you know what drives me crazy in the kitchen? Badly made knives. I have lost count of the number of cheap but beautiful knives that have fallen to pieces, rusted or worse shattered in my kitchen over the years.
Now, I won’t stint on knives and the Cuisinart 15-Piece Stainless Steel Hollow Handle Block Set is a perfect example of a high-quality product that will last and which doesn’t cost the earth. You have to have a good knife set, everyone uses knives – so let’s see why this one might be the right one for you.
One Piece Knives
Knives with grips, even the best and most expensive, lose their grips at some point. The glue dissolves or the screws rust or the threads go. At that point you’re left holding the handle and hoping that the blade isn’t stuck in anything important, like your finger.
The Cuisinart set uses single piece knives which are all machined from the same piece of metal. That won’t stop blades from snapping but it does mean you will never lose a handle or a finger. It also makes them easy to clean and you won’t find stray pieces of food working their way into the seal between knife and handle because there isn’t one.
Stylish And Contemporary
You’ll also notice that these knives look good. Really good, at a quick glance they look like they could be a much more expensive set. That’s important because most people are going to keep this knife block on display on a kitchen work unit and you don’t want people to think you have poor taste, do you?
You can pick up the Cuisinart 15-Piece Stainless Steel Hollow Handle Block Set on Amazon and it’s very reasonably priced for what it is. I think it may be one of the best value items that I’ve found for Kitchen Authority so far.
