Before you begin, gather the necessary tools, including a Cuisinart knife set, cutting board and kitchen gadgets. Think a Cuisinart paring knife for peeling root vegetables and a chef’s knife for creating small cubes of meat. Then, throw all the ingredients into a slow cooker before turning your focus to the side dishes. If you’re prepping a side salad, select a santoku blade from your Cuisinart cutlery set to mince onions, carrots, tomatoes and other produce. For those who prefer barbecuing in the backyard, Cuisinart cutlery and tool sets geared toward grilling help you serve up the best summertime meals.
Two Henckels collections, Modernist and Graphite, have stainless steel handles. Cuisinart knife sets include two sets of knives — the basics included in every set and the optional knives that round out a given set. The best Cuisinart knife set is the Cuisinart C77WTR-15P Classic Forged Triple Rivet 15-Piece Knife Set in White.
The rest of their collections have stamped blades. Most of Cuisinart’s knife handles are made from durable plastic, except for the Graphix collection. The Cuisinart Graphix collection features hollow stainless steel handles with a bumpy texture , so they offer an excellent grip even when they are wet.

When exposed to heat, the little strips, or teeth, will begin to curl, and leave you with a dull edge. A knife hone which you see chefs using, does not grind an edge back onto the blade, rather it straightens the bent teeth without reducing the material of the blade. If you watch Cookware Sets any chef, you will see they only wash their blades in cold water. I have washed mine several times in the dishwasher. There’s no rust on the exposed metal edges and the paint coating has stayed on the blades just fine. The plastic handles also appear unaffected by the dishwasher.
If you don’t have a spot on your countertop, the latter is a good choice. Look for ergonomic handles; these make the knives more comfortable to use and work with. This set includes an 8″ Chef’s knife, 8″ Cookware Sets Slicing knife, 7″ Santoku knife, 5″ Serrated Utility knife, and 3.5″ Paring knife, all with blade guards.

They cut differently, but I think they are not as easy to cut yourself and have a lighter touch. They come with nice covers that would have to be removed for the magnet, though. I really like the covers to protect the blade .
Before you make a purchase, or make the first cut in your own kitchen, it’s a good idea to simulate slicing and see how a knife feels to you. The steak knives are stored in the knife block too, but the slots are somewhat oversized for them. We found our steak knives were often out of alignment because of this, which makes them look slightly messy. They would look nice at a table setting if it weren’t for the model numbers printed largely on both sides of the blades.
