After a year of cooking most of your meals at home, your cookware has been through a lot. Taking the brunt of the workload, chances are your knives are in the worst condition — dulled, scratched and defeated. 

Not only does working with dull knives make slicing, dicing and chopping more tedious and time-consuming, it can also be dangerous. Your knife should be sturdy and sharp, so it can easily cut through foods, not slide off or get stuck. Having a self-sharpening knife block is your best bet — it keeps all of your knives together in one secure spot (not shuffling around in a drawer) and automatically sharpens the blade when you take the knife in and out. 

It's no secret that knife sets and blocks can be pricey, with sets from places like Williams-Sonoma and Sur La Table setting you back a couple hundred. While it may be worth the investment, you don't need to cut a chunk from your paycheck to get good cookware. In fact, we spotted this Zwilling J.A. Henckels 7-piece Self-Sharpening Knife Block Set, that normally retails for $180, on sale for just $90 at HSN, today only! You also have the option to pay in five FlexPays of $18, so you don't have to shell out the full price right away.

The 7-piece set includes a 3" paring knife, 5" serrated utility knife, 6" utility knife, 7" hollow-edge Santoku knife, 8" chef's knife and kitchen shears crafted from high-carbon stainless steel. The knives have a single-piece, precision-stamped blade that seamlessly transitions into a triple-rivet handle, for a sturdy grip while you slice away.

"These knives are the best! Besides being so sharp to begin with, the self-sharpening block keeps them that way! The weight of each knife is not too heavy to work with, but a very nice weight. They are not flimsy either," says one satisfied reviewer. "These are the BEST knives you will ever own and the ONLY ones you will ever need. Really. This would be a great wedding present."

One reviewer says the knives make prepping proteins and produce a breeze, "These knives are sharp and cutting vegetables and meat is so easy. I love the self-sharpening feature. I would highly recommend these knives to anyone who wants good cutting knives."

The slots even have labels, so you'll always put the right knife in the right place. The wooden base is available in three colors: black, red and white, to compliment any countertop

Another reviewer noted how important it is to have good knives when working in the kitchen. "They say that accidents happen when cutting with a dull knife and it's definitely true. This set is great looking and practical. I can get to slicing and dicing the moment it leaves the self sharping block. It's wonderful."

This self-sharpening knife block set is the perfect new addition to your kitchen and makes a great housewarming gift. At just $90, it's a steal — but the deal is only live today, so chop chop!
