  • Wusthof 12 piece Starter set review

    I have used other brands of cutlery, Kitchen Aid, Cutco, J.A Henkel to name a few.They all were lkie useing a back saw instead of a good knife. The knifes I ordered from Foodnetwork were a pleasure to use. They have a nice sharpness that makes food preperation easy and a little faster. The next blade I will add to the set will be the oriental stile chopping blade then the meat slicer. Overall a nice set of blades.

    I recommend this product.

  • Don't wait to try Wusthof

    We have been enjoying Wusthof knives for over a decade now, and I still regret not having sprung for great knives many years ago. We now proudly give Wusthof knife sets to our children as wedding and house warming gifts, and they, too now wonder, "how do you ever get by in the kitchen without great knives? Start with a Chef's knife or even just a paring knife and you will be hooked with no regrets!

  • Slightly disappointed

    These knives were shipped and delivered in a very reasonable amount of time. They are all very sharp upon delivery. I was disappointed in the heaviness and thickness of the steel used for the blades. They are just not in the $400 price league, but okay at the$169 sale price. Do not expect top quality with this set as I was or you will be disappointed.

    I had a sneaky hunch that buying these knives for my mother was possibly an accident waiting to happen, and I hate it when I'm right! I told mother to be really careful that the knives will be so much sharper then her old set. Cutting veggies the other day she cut the very tip of her finger off. The old knives were doing good to cut veggies let alone finger tips. I suggest anyone not use to very sharp knives should be very cautious and I cannot stress that enough. I feel these knives are very high quality. You can't go wrong!

  • GREAT Knives!

    Everyone who's into fine cooking accoutrements and basic tools has their theory about what's best. Knock yourself out - mine, as regards knives, is that Wuestof is fine unless you're a professional chef ...and maybe even then! The price on this deal was excellent, and I am thrilled!

  • Sharpest Knives Around

    It is such a pleasure to be able to prepare food with a really sharp knife. I do feel I need one more knife to complete the set, however. Something between the chef's knife and the utility knife (what my mother used to call it, a butcher's knife,) Since I have 2 empty slots in the block, I will be adding to it in the future.

  • What a difference

    We bought this set to replace another larger set we purchased from another mid-range brand. Our old knives were so dull they became a hazard and refused to sharpen no matter how we tried. This new set, while about twice as much as we had spent previously, cuts with ease and is a pleasure to use. There are two slots for additional knives. we plan to add to our set over time. Well worth the money for both ease of use and safety (sometimes a sharper knife makes all the difference)

  • Knives sharp but light

    I expected a heavier set of knives. My first impression was not favorable as they are light as in flimsy. They are sharp and I hope will hold their edge. I expect with a reputation Wustof has they will. TIme will tell. I am trying to get used to the lighter feel and just hope it isn't an indication of poor quality.
