Choosing a Cutlery Knife Set

Last Updated:

Every kitchen should have a great stainless steel knife set. The cutlery knife set is a necessary element of cooking. And, kitchen cutlery sets is not the place you want to cut corners when you are outfitting a kitchen. Some areas can be sacrificed, but not the cutlery knives.

For example, you don’t need to have an all-oak, three inch thick cutting board. Something a little less heavy-duty will do just fine. Cutlery stainless is a necessity and the finer, the better. There are many brands and types of kitchen cutlery sets. The Henckels knife set is one of the best. A Henckels knife set will last you for years and years.

Other quality chefs knives include brands like Wusthoff cutlery and Arthur Price cutlery. These, along with the classic Henckels knife set are among the finest in kitchen cutlery sets. One place where it doesn’t pay to go the inexpensive route is when it comes to cutlery. Knives that get sharp and will stay sharp will be your most used tools in the kitchen and, if you get quality cutlery, your knives will last you the rest of your life. You can get cheap cutlery, but you’ll regret it.

Your cookie sheets don’t necessarily have to be industrial grade; anything that will hold cookies and get them warm will probably work. You can save quite a bit of money this way too, since professional grade cooking tools will usually cost you a bit more than the cheaper versions. However, some corners should never be cut.

Kitchen cutlery is usually pretty easy to find. There are many reputable companies that provide cutlery in a range of quality and cost. Of course, it is always recommended to shop with a name brand in cutlery that you can trust and that carries a money-back-guarantee. You should always look for customer service and nothing beats a 100% guarantee.

Our recommended provider of great cutlery is J.A. Henckels International . They are absolutely the best when it comes to providing the finest Cutlery at very affordable prices. They even offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee that is good for an exchange or refund.

J. A. Henckels has a huge variety of cutlery and specialty cutlery, including serrated and scalloped cutlery, paring, peeling, and utility knives, and  much more!

J. A. Henckels knives are perhaps the most used tool in the kitchen. Cutlery stainless tools are essential in preparing almost all meals. Almost every recipe will call for cutlery knives aside from those dealing with baking or dough.

Since the Henckels knife is the most used piece of stainless cutlery, it should be the best knife in your kitchen. A cheap chef’s knife will feel flimsy and light in the hand, while a quality knife will feel heavy and solid on the cutting board. The heavier the cutlery knife set, the safer it handles. Quality cutlery may cost a little more, but will be worth it.

Though you may be able to get a sharp edge on a bargain-basement chef’s knife, it won’t hold its edge for very long and will soon dull. A quality knife, on the other hand, will quickly sharpen to a razor’s edge and hold the edge for a long time due to the superior hardness and craftsmanship.

When shopping for knives, also pay attention to the handles. Hold the cutlery in your hands for awhile to get a feel for how the knives will handle, since an uncomfortable handle will make the knife awkward to work with, while a good handle will make cutting and chopping a pleasure.

Usually, which cutlery handle feels the best is largely a matter of personal preference. Pay attention to how the blade is fastened to the handle. Is it one solid forged piece? If a wood or acrylic handle is attached to the blade, is it bolted all the way through? How many bolts hold the blade on?

These are just a few of the important facts to consider when choosing quality cutlery. Cutlery should last many years if taken care of properly. If you look for quality in craftsmanship in cutlery you won’t ever regret it.
