I have been looking at Wusthof and Henckels knives. I really didn't need a big knife set, because I really only use two size knives. I had received the Acacia cutting board as a gift and was SO impressed with it, I decided to try the knives. Well. I guess I have never owned a quality knife before. I dislike stainless steel knives. I actually cut bristles off my kitchen dish brush when cleaning these knives. They are super sharp. I cut potatoes and onions and the little indentions kept them from rising up. I must say, the super reasonable price made me a little apprehensive, but I thought, I can always send them back. There WILL BE NO sending these back. Next on my list is those great measuring cups and spoons.
I am a good home cook, and I buy the best equipment. Henckels and Wusthof have nothing on Paula Deen. I am very impressed.
