If cooking is starting to feel like a chore, consider this: it might not be what you’re cooking that feels tiresome, but rather how you’re making your meal.
Start by taking a look at the knives you’re using to prep your meats and vegetables. If you’re using a dull knife, it can actually ADD time in the kitchen, increasing stress and anxiety as you struggle to chop and cut without success.
Most people are also using the same knife for everything — from slicing meets to slicing bread — and that not only increases wear and tear on that one knife, but it also makes it more difficult to get the job done. Not all knives are created equal. You wouldn’t clean your floors and your dishes with the same sponge would you? The same thinking goes for knives.
If you’re ready to upgrade your knife set, you can’t really go wrong with this Utopia Kitchen 12-piece Stainless Steel Set that’s on sale at Amazon right now. Regularly priced at $299, it’s been discounted by 90% to just $29.74.
The set includes an 8″ chef knife; 8″ bread knife; 8″ slicing knife; 5″ utility knife; 3.5″ inch paring knife; and six 4.5″ steak knives. All the knives fit neatly and safely into the included acrylic knife stand.
The stainless steel construction means the knives are durable and built to last. Plus, the material is resistant to rust. Unlike other knives, where the blade and handle are fastened together, the solid, one piece stainless steel structure is designed specifically to eliminate the issue of handles falling off. And it gives you a better, more stable grip.
Thoughtful details make this knife set a solid bet: unlike wooden knife blocks, where the base is completely enclosed, and thus becomes a possible breeding ground for moisture loving mold and bacteria, this knife set features two exterior walls that are completely open, allowing a flow of air to come through. The stand is also minimal enough to blend into almost any kitchen decorating style.
This knife set is well-reviewed online, with a 4.2 star rating from more than 1100 reviews. To clean: just wipe the knives clean with a soft-cloth after rinsing in the sink.
