Wüsthof is a corporation that has stood the test of time. Cook and Top Chef Canada host Eden Grinshpan was told to buy it when she was in culinary school, and it's the one cookbook author Erin Gleeson registered for when she got married a decade ago and still uses. It's also the one that multiple celebrity chefs with a variety of cooking styles have endorsed (a quick Google search will tell you that both Ina Garten and Gordon Ramsay swear by them).
According to Grinshpan, "They're simply really excellent quality, and they've stood the test of time quite well." "Some of the parts are still in my possession in my kitchen." As previously said, this specific set includes a paring knife, a chef's knife, and a serrated knife - the only three knives you truly need when it comes to executing the majority of culinary activities. It also comes with a few useful extras, such as a wooden block to keep your blades safe, an honing steel to sharpen the edges, and a pair of "come-apart" kitchen shears (the "come-apart" feature makes them simple to clean). According to Gleeson, "I use scissors all the time for anything from pizza and flatbreads to chives and onions."
Elegant design and smart features come together in the WÜSTHOF Classic Ikon to provide you with great performance and longevity. In Classic Ikon Series, blades are entirely forged and exceptionally sharp due to a patented honing technique developed by the company.
