We can all attest to the fact that Cutco certainly does a great job getting their products recognized and distributed throughout the world. While some people have been buying Cutco knives for the past 30 years (thanks to their mind blowing warranty), there are others who have only heard of the name through passing. If you're one of those people who have only heard about Cutco knives because your mother-in-law brags about hers all of the time, or while sitting at your neighbor's dining room table talking over dinner, then you honestly have no clue how incredible this company truly is.
Cutco produces high quality knives and other kitchen utensils with an undeniably impressive warranty backing each and every one of them, which is proof of how confident they are in the quality of their products. If you're in the market for a new knife set for your home or business, or you've always wanted to try Cutco knives but have never made the leap because of the cost, then this 18-Piece Homemaker Set with Honey Oak Block would make a fantastic addition to your collection. While the set obviously comes as a whole piece, it's important to know what you're getting, so let's take some time to discuss each of the pieces that are included with this impressive knife set.
This piece of cutlery may be small, but it sure does pack a mighty punch. The blade on this paring knife is not only sharp enough to slice through soft fruits and tough veggies with ease, but it extends fully through the length of the handle, so you're provided with extra strength and balance. This knife is definitely considered an essential favorite among amateur and professional chefs from all over the world.
The Trimmer from Cutco has a Double-D edge, which provides a clean, smooth cut every single time. In fact, the Double-D edge blade also allows the knife to stay sharp longer than other knives that have straight-edges. The Trimmer included with this set from Cutco can be used to cut your fruits and veggies, but it can also be used to slice the fat off of meat.
If you're the type of person who can appreciate a good sandwich with all the fixings, then you can most likely understand and appreciate the value of having a decent spatula spreader at your disposal. This Cutco set comes with a stainless steel spatula spreader with a Double-D edge, so it can cut, serve, slice and spread with flexible ease. With this spatula spreader, your sandwiches can go from delicious to out-of-this-world in no time!
Turning forks are used, just as their name suggests, to turn, lift, and serve foods like bacon, steak, fish, and even large vegetables. This three-tined turning fork from Cutco can securely grasp and turn food with ease, making it a great addition to this impressive cutlery set from Cutco.
This Petite Carver from Cutco is meant to cut smaller slivers of meat, like chicken, steak, or ham. Because of its Double-D edge design and ergonomic handle, this steak knife is capable of cutting even, smooth slices of meat every single time you use it. It can be difficult to slice of pieces of roast with a regular carving knife, but this knife works so well that a child could do it.
It goes without saying that having a butcher knife is an essential part of having a reliable knife set for your home. It's clear to see that Cutco makes some high-quality products, and their butcher knife is one of their best. Thanks to the wide belly and clip point of this butcher knife, you're able to get the accuracy you're looking for when it comes to cutting, segmenting, and trimming larger cuts of meat.
While you may not use a carving fork on a regular basis, unless you tend to have dinner parties quite frequently, having one in your home definitely has its benefits. The carving fork included with this knife set from Cutco has two sharp tines that are designed to deeply penetrate meat with ease. And because this carving fork can hold onto meat so securely, you're able to transfer the meat to a serving platter without fear of dropping it.
We all know that when Thanksgiving or Christmas comes around each year that it's time to get your favorite serving platter and carving knife out to enjoy your holiday feasts. This 9-inch carver knife can make anyone's mediocre carving skills look professional. If you want to impress your father-in-law this winter with how well you can carve the Thanksgiving turkey, then this set would be a perfect way for you to do so.
If you're the type of person who enjoys making their own bread from scratch, then you most likely understand the frustration that can come from attempting to cut the bread without crushing it with the knife. Luckily, there are incredible products like this slicer from Cutco that can make the job a whole lot easier and a lot less stressful. Thanks to the long, narrow blade, this knife is able to cut smoothe slices with one continuous stroke.
This Petite Chef knife from Cutco may end up being one of your favorites out of this whole entire set. Capable of slicing, chopping, mincing, and dicing, this knife does an incredible job at cutting up fruits and vegetables with ease. If find yourself food prepping a bunch, then this knife might be a great addition to your home.
This set also comes with eight table knives, a cutting board, a knife sharpener, and an Oak block with a cherry or honey finish. Needless to say, Cutco has put together one of the best knife sets out there. If you've been thinking about trying out a Cutco product, or you've been wanting to replace the one that you've had for 30 years, then this set is a great investment for you to make.
