There's nothing worse than pulling out a knife to start prepping ingredients for a meal, only to discover a dull blade. Many of us only have a short amount of time to cook each day and don't want to waste those minutes on sharpening knives. That's why we're big fans of knife blocks with built-in sharpeners, like the Farberware Self-Sharpening Knife Block Set that's currently 30% off at Amazon.
The 13-piece set comes with an 8-inch chef's knife, an 8-inch slicer, a 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, a 5-inch chef's knife with kullens, a 3.5-inch paring knife, a set of six 4.5-inch steak knives, a pair of all-purpose kitchen shears, and a black block. Each of the five primary knives has its own slot with a built-in ceramic sharpener, which automatically files the knives whenever they're removed and put back into the block.
To buy: Farberware Self-Sharpening 13-Piece Knife Block Set, $56 (originally $80) at amazon.com
Not only will these knives improve your productivity in the kitchen, but they'll also look nice sitting on your counter. Both the blade and handle of each knife have a sleek stainless steel finish, which contrasts the stark black block, and the ergonomic handles make them easy to grip.
"This is seriously the nicest knife set I have ever owned," one reviewer wrote. "The knives are so sharp that I've nicked myself a couple of times, so watch out! The base is super sturdy and the knives are ready to chop. They are hand wash only, so be prepared for that."
A second shopper added: "It's great to have every piece of cutlery you need, so you can always grab the right knife instead of struggling to make your all-purpose knife work."
You can't beat the $56 price tag for a set of knives that sharpen themselves, so we highly recommend taking advantage of this deal now. Shop the Farberware knife block set while it's still 30% off at Amazon.
