Many food experts and chefs around the world advise us that it would be far better option to buy knives one by one instead purchasing the whole complete. And they might be right. Just think about it. Most people usually use one or two knives and rest of them lays unused or even unpacked, waiting for the perfect occasion that never comes. This is what experts think about buying the best kitchen knife set. We think that they are right. But not 100%. Sometimes, appropriate set is still the best option for people who are not professionals and who just want to enjoy in cooking.
These sets are also great because they can be used as a perfect gift for wedding or for people who are just moving in a new apartment. And we must say that some of them look really cool and can bring a new dose of luxury in every kitchen. At the end, purchasing the whole package is cheaper and easier than buying separate knives. Keep this in your mind next time you go shopping.
Now it is time to talk a little bit about price. As you already know, there are sets that cost more than $1000, but the question is do you really need something like that? According to our experience, these completes are more for people who want to show themselves, not to make food with these super expensive knives. If you are among these folks, then just go for it. But if you still prefer to use these sharp things in your kitchen, then sets up to $400 will be just fine. This is what we think about this. Of course, you will make the final decision.
Here is a list of our favorites:
First of all, there is a classic 8-piece set with wooden block by Wusthof. If you decide to buy this complete, you will get almost everything you will ever need for cutting, slicing or paring. The quality of every single peace is great; they are durable and extremely sharp. Depending on the seller, you can get it for less than $400.
Our second recommendation is 7- peace Twin Professional set by Zwilling J.A. Henckels. It comes with wooden block. These knives are used by both professional chefs and amateur cooks.
Finally, for those with tight budget, there is 4-peace set produced by Victorinox. If you are not planning to became Michelin three star chef, then this set would be juts perfect for you. And it costs slightly more than $100.
