Cuisinart C77SS-15PK Block Set
Every chef knows that the key to efficiency in the kitchen is not in how modern your appliances are. As long as you have a good set of sharp and durable knives, you can be invincible in this part of the home. This philosophy is what Cuisinart’s 15-Piece Knife Set adheres to. It’s a knife set that can empower any home cook in his or her kitchen escapades.
Each of the 14 professional knives in the set features high carbon stainless steel construction. This material gives the knives their strength and sharpness. Maintaining the sharpness of the knives can help ensure better accuracy and precision during use. You’ll feel more confident with a Cuisinart knife in your hands.
Unlike other knives, however, this knife set comes with a hollow handle. Conventional knives often have a solid block of wood for its handle. Its hollow handle feature gives the Cuisinart a lightweight characteristic. This frees the hand from strain that often comes with repetitive motion. It’s lightweight enough not to cause further strain on the wrist.
The set comes with an 8-inch Chef’s knife which is ideal for a multitude of food preparation activities. If you need finer and more precision slices, then the 7-inch Santoku knife will come in handy. There’s also an 8-inch slicing knife which you can use for different food items. The 5.5-inch serrated utility knife is great not only in the kitchen but elsewhere in the home. Use it in your work area, in your garage, and in the garden. It’s a multipurpose knife that is tough enough to handle any job you throw its way.
If you need some precision removal of the skin of a fruit or vegetable, your best pick would be the 3.5-inch paring knife. If there are irregularly-shaped food items that need paring, then that’s a job for the Cuisinart 3.5-inch bird’s beak paring knife. Cuisinart is also throwing an all-purpose shears. It’s a large pair of scissors with a bottle opener attachment on one of the blades. These shears are so tough that you can cut whole chicken with it.
Rounding up the set is an 8-inch sharpening steel and six pieces of 4.5-inch steak knives. An elegant knife block provides a stable platform for these knives to rest on.
The Cuisinart 15-piece Knife Set is a great culinary tool set for beginning home cooks. It’s ergonomic, easy to clean, and does a good job in preparing food.
