They say a man is only as good as his tools, and that ideology certainly holds true for cooking. Use the wrong skillet, for instance, and your food may not cook evenly. Use an old, dull knife to prep your meal, and the chopping that should have been a quick and easy task can quickly become a time-consuming nightmare. While any of our favorite top-rated knives will go a long way toward helping you to avoid the latter scenario, there’s one set in particular you can get right now at a steal that happens to rival one of our picks for the best of the best.
From now through April 8, you can get the Cuisinart 12-Piece Color Pro Collection Knife Block Set, regularly $120, for just $49.99 at JCPenny. Plus, you can add the code 4BUNNY at checkout to drop it to $37.49. All-in-all, that’s a savings of more than $80! It’s also the lowest price around, with Amazon and other sites listing it for $43 or more.
According to our expert knife tester, this set is very similar to the Cuisinart C77TR-15P Triple Riveted Collection 15-Piece Knife Block Set we tested, which earned our praise for its great value and design. While the Rivted set wasn’t the sharpest set on our list, its six included knives did pass our quality standards, chopping onions and other items with ease. Ultimately, we thought it was a great little pick for those seeking a decent set for under $100.
The Color Pro Collection includes the same 8-inch chef’s knife, 8-inch slicing knife, 5-inch Santoku knife, and 3.5-inch paring knife as the 15-piece set, although you won’t get the 8-inch serrated bread knife or the 4.5-inch utility knife. Instead, you’ll get a 5-inch serrated utility knife and four steak knives, plus sharpening steel, all-purpose shears, and an all-wooden block.
JCPenney shoppers also seem to love it, with 92% of reviewers saying they would recommend it to a friend.While shipping is steep at $8.95, you can avoid the fee by adding $11.51 to your order to hit the free ship threshold of $49.
