Summertime is heading our way with a fresh new menu — tomatoes, summer squash, watermelon, kebabs, chicken and steaks on the grill and salads galore have replaced soups, stews and casseroles. To get this new menu right, our knives need to be on point to get the job done quickly and safely.
Fortunately, this smart color-coded Cuisinart 12-Piece Color Knife Set — an Amazon bestseller —costs just $25. We'll wait while you pick your jaw up off the floor.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Made with high-quality stainless steel blades and a nonstick coating for easy slicing, the set includes an 8-inch chef knife, an 8-inch slicing knife, an 8-inch serrated bread knife, a 7-inch santoku knife, a 6.5-inch utility knife and a 3.5-inch paring knife. You will literally be ready to slice anything.
Shoppers on a budget love these. Shares one: "Like many, I'd love to head to Williams-Sonoma and drop $1,000 on a great set of 'for life' knives. However, I'm a graduate student so that's just not in the cards given my stipend. That being said, these are truly excellent for the price. If you don't have a set of knives, get these now. They are smooth and cut effortlessly. I primarily use the chef, Japanese, and paring knives and I love them."
Each knife comes with a matching blade sleeve to prevent dulling — and protect you while you're rummaging though the kitchen drawer. Not only are the jewel tones a fun pop of color, but they also make it a breeze to reach for just the right tool for each task — as well as reduce the risk of cross-contamination during food prep.
One reviewer plans on giving this to everyone as a present. She writes: "I bought this knife set for myself a year ago at a store, and loved them so much, I would brag to everyone even when I shouldn't have. Eventually, my mother-in-law used them at my house and loved them so much that she would ask to borrow them all the time. We went back to the store all year to find her own set. They were never there. So I came on Amazon and there they were! She said they were the best Xmas present ever! The knives I bought a year ago are just as good as the day I bought them. I'll be buying everyone a set next Xmas!"
Another added: "I absolutely love this knife set!!! I still can’t believe you can get such a good high quality set for $25. I was convinced I had to get a $400 set to be happy but I’m very wrong. Highly recommend this set!"
Who says meal prep can't be fun? Brighten up your kitchen know with this Cusinart knife set for just $25.
