Pampered Chef 12-Piece Knife Block Set Giveaway
Happy Monday, friends! I hope that you all had a beautiful Easter weekend filled with lots of hope and goodness. And hopefully some carrot cake and a few Cadbury eggs. ;)
Instead of a recipe this Monday, I’m happy to announce that we have an extra-special giveaway launching on the site today for — you guessed it — a Pampered Chef Bamboo Knife Block Set!
Now, I definitely used to be the poster child for cooking good food with bad knives, having survived my twenties (including a few years blogging) with the $30 knife set I bought in college. Never let anyone tell you it can’t be done. But man oh man, cooking is sure a lot more fun and much more efficient with a set of really good, well-made knives on hand. Especially a gorgeous 12-piece set like this. Well worth the investment if you spend considerable time in the kitchen, in this food blogger’s sharp-knife-loving opinion.
So if you would love to add a set like this to your kitchen, read on for more details about this set and take a minute to enter the giveaway for a chance to win!
So what’s so great about this set?
Well, first of all I’m happy to say that I can vouch for it from personal experience. I have been a Pampered Chef fan for many years, with many of their products in my kitchen. (And I still buy my favorite Pampered Chef ice cream scoops as wedding presents to help friends easily fill cupcake and muffin liners, which earns me the raised eyebrow and then later a gushing thank-you once they realize how awesome those scoops are.) Anyway, the kind folks at PC heard about my hodgepodge of mostly bottom-of-the-line Walmart and TJMaxx knives and offered to send me a beautiful set to try out. And then — bonus — a second one to give away for one of you too!
And oh my goodness, I genuinely am in love.
I mean, I was super-stoked when I read all about Pampered Chef’s forged cutlery line. And things like the “fully forged, high-carbon German steel” that gives the knives the “perfect edge and sharpness, stain and corrosion resistance, and superior strength and durability”. And “full tang for strength and perfect balance”. And protective covers for each knife, especially handy for transporting them to my food styling gigs.
But any cook will tell you that the real test for knives happens once they’re in your hot little hands. And you get to put them to the test trying to cut open that pineapple, or slice a warm loaf of bread, or core some fresh tomatoes, or dice a pound of raw bacon. (Check, check, check and check.) Let me tell you — these knives not only sliced through those tests with flying colors, they actually made all of that cutting prep work feel like a party! Whoo — so fun!!!
Seriously, they fit in my hands perfectly. They felt like a nice weight. And goodness gracious, they are sharp and easy to use.
So you may be asking, what’s in the set? Well, lemme tell ya. The 12-piece Bamboo Knife Block Set includes a:
- 9″ Bread Knife
- 8″ Chef’s Knife
- 7″ Santoku Knife
- 5″ Santoku Knife
- 5″ Utility Knife
- 5″ Boning Knife
- 4 1/2″ Serrated Knife
- 3 1/2″ Paring Knife
- 3″ Petite Paring Knives
- Bamboo Knife Block
- Forged Cutlery Honing Tool
- Professional Shears
Feel free to click on any of the links to learn more about each individual piece. But basically, you have a rockin’ set of knives. (The 8-inch chef’s knife and 5-inch santoku are my new favs.) Plus a classy knife block. Plus a honing tool that is super-easy to use and works like a charm. Plus — arguably the most-used item in my kitchen — shears. Oh man, do you all use kitchen shears as often as I do? Muy importante.
But I have to say, one of my favorite things that comes with set is not pictured — a lifetime guarantee. Boom.
So all that said, if you happen to be in the market for new knives, I would totally recommend checking out this set. Or even looking into trying out one or two of the individual pieces if that fits better in your budget. You can also connect and learn more about Pampered Chef on their website, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
