Product Description Product Description

Includes 8" chefs knife, 8" slicing knife, 8" bread knife, 5" utility knife, 3.5" paring knife, shears, sharpening steel, 8 steak knives


When a chef chooses a knife for slicing strawberries, chances are that the selection differs greatly from the optimal blade for dicing an onion. The large blade on a chef’s knife, while quite efficient cutting onions, would squash the juicy, petite berries. Likewise, a paring knife adeptly slices small, soft ingredients, but makes rather an ineffective blade for chopping onions, potatoes, and other hardier foods. To handle all cutting chores, KitchenAid offers their Cook’s Series 16-piece Cutlery Set. The set consists of an 8-inch chef’s knife, an 8-inch slicing knife, an 8-inch bread knife, a 5-1/2-inch utility knife, a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, eight steak knives, kitchen shears, a knife sharpener, and a traditional storage block. A fantastic gift for a pair of newlyweds or a recent college graduate, the quality knife set provides a high caliber cutlery collection for decades of use.

KitchenAid forged the knives in sturdy high-carbon stainless steel to resist stains, rust, and corrosion. Soft blade backs and the extra-sharp cutting edges enhance user control and capability. Full tang construction, fully enclosed in the knives’ DuPont Delrin handles, ensures balance and durability. For user comfort, the shatterproof acetal resin handles feature ergonomic contoured grips and brushed stainless-steel end caps. The knives store in the natural wood block. Though dishwasher- safe, KitchenAid recommends washing knives by hand. Knives should be cleaned immediately following contact with acidic foods like mustard to avoid tarnish. Made in China, a one-year hassle-free replacement warranty covers the set. The knife block measures 6 by 8 by 7 inches. Upon shipping, the full set measures 11-4/5 by 4-3/5 by 12-4/5 inches and weighs 10 pounds.

We have had this set for about 18 months. I invested in a good manual knife sharpener which is required to keep the blades sharp. The steak knives with our set did not have the matching stainless steel handles and are just so so quality. Overall the knives are good but not great. I am thinking that we would have been better off investing in a few high quality individual knives as an alternative. The block is convenient.

Quality knife set Dec 2 2006
By Renee - Published on
Verified Purchase
I had been using old, dull knives to cut vegetables, meat, bread and everything else. I wanted to treat myself to a nice knife set, so I picked this one. I'm blown away by this set! The weight is perfect for chopping and the blades are nice and sharp. The funky red color looks cute in my kitchen too. The only negative is they're not dishwasher safe, but luckily they do clean easily by hand. Overall, I'm thrilled to finally have a knife set to be proud of.

REVISED: At the time I purchased this knife set, Amazon was having a problem picturing the correct set. They had mixed up the images with this set and another KitchenAid knife set. It looks like Amazon has finally sorted out the problem.

Better than the picture Dec 13 2006
By M. Murray - Published on

Be sure to note that the picture is totally incorrect, but that's a good thing. The cutlery is as pictured, but the block has been redesigned into a slimmer and taller piece, which for me was a lot better. You counter space is not threatened this way. The handles appear to be kind of a cheap plastic (reason for subtracting a star), but the blades all look high quality and there is a sharpener included in case they get dull, and unlike the red handled set, these are dishwasher safe. So if you are looking for a $50 set of knives, this is recommended as a good replacement set, or a nice wedding gift for a young couple.

Not the greatest Dec 31 2006
By Jumanji - Published on
Verified Purchase
I just got these knives and I was very excited because my old set was in the worst shape possible. I was truly disappointed! I would have expected them to be considerably sharper than what they were. I'm glad it came with the sharpening tool. My husband certainly wasn't impressed when I told him he had to sharpen the new knives immediately. I am a fan of KitchenAid products, but this has made me hesitant to purchase again.

Neat looking...and that's all. Feb. 10 2007
By J. Martin - Published on
Seriously, for as good as their mixers are, their knives are really, really disappointing. Flimsy, dull, easily bent and broken. Within the first week of use, our paring knife bent a full 90 degrees at the tip and needed regular re-straightening before it eventually broke off altogether a couple months later. The steak knives are now following suit, and the handle of the chef's knife has completely seperated from the blade. Gah! Don't waste your money.

Good for the price Feb. 17 2007
By anonymous - Published on
I have been using these knives for about a month now. For the price I think they are a good value. I like the block they come with as it doesn't take up much space on my counter top and looks nice sitting on the countertop. They have done fine in the dishwasher as I was a little concerned it might affect the handles. Considering the price I paid I think the quality is good for the money.
