congratulations on living alone! For the knives I am one of those that thinks you only really need a good chef knife, a good paring knife (by that I mean one you like and it does a great job), steak knives, and a sharpener. the chef knife can cut bread Very well if it is sharp!


this one looks like a nice classic shape decent company and if you take care of it (ie: hand wash only, rinse after cutting anything acidic, don't leave in the sink full of water, or leave it setting with food stuck to the blade) it will last a long time.


these steak knives look really nice


I have this knife sharpener and it works great


I have tried many indoor grills not very happy with them. My hubby got me this one last year for Christmas. I love this thing. I have grilled chicken, portobellos, we have made grilled cheese on this. he has made pancakes, and you can buy the waffle plates to make 4 waffles at a time.

the Plates pop off and can go right in the dishwasher it is a grill, contact grill, panini press, griddle or waffle iron (after you buy the waffle iron plates separate)



In edit: I would recommend this brush for helping the cleaning process. wow! does a great job!

Advice for you: Stay in contact with your U.S. college friends while you are away. Yes, you'll meet tons of fun people out there and be busy experiencing Spain, but take the time to sent post-cards, e-mails, and other forms of communication. I've had a few friends who just drop off the face of the earth for a semester abroad and it is sort of sad, because you feel like they've forgotten about you. A simple post-card really makes a difference.

Advice for Freshman: join clubs and become active on campus. Most schools offer so many cool services, and these are also great ways to make friends and try new things. I jumped into two clubs right away and have made life-long friends from them. It took me until my senior year to realize there were so many other services though - like free movie screenings, resume/career seminars, dances, exercise groups, etc. Take advantage of these wonderful - usually free - services while you can.

Third thing.

I would love a new set of Steak Knives

u/Phaz · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

Yeah, they make them, and they are amazing.

I have a set like this. That isn't the exact set I have, mine are Shun but were much cheaper as they were a Woot Special. They are the super nice, super sharp steel though. Easily the sharpest knives in my house.

I love them. IMO they are better than serrated because they slice the meat so damn well. There isn't any 'tearing' motion to cut through a steak, it just cuts right down, perfectly smoothly with no effort. It almost seems to keep more juice in the steak for that reason (less trauma to cut it).

Ironically, when I use them (which is rare) I don't worry about the plates, but the knives. Using knives like that on ceramic (or other things plates are made out of) is pretty bad for the knives. Mine are already a little more dull than when I first got them, and I haven't used them all that much. I'd imagine that's why most steak knives are serrated.

You don't have to spend much to get a decent knife set.

I did a lot of research , and even though the much touted knife by victorinox is a really good knife, it is a bit pricey for my taste. Mind you, kitchen minimalists usually say that all you need is a chef's knife, a paring knife, and a good bread knife.

I purchased this set of chicago cutlery for $15 and some change. (edit) Amazon is now running a 4-for-3 promotion, so this means you buy four items that qualify for this promotion, and you get the lowest priced one free. Not a bad deal at all.

I then purchased this chicago cutlery bread knife for another $15

lastly i purchased a chicago cutlery steel to keep all the knives honed.

So, altogether it tallies up to about $42 (free shipping since it is more than $25). Keep in mind that these items all qualify for the 4-for3 promotion, so you could pick these up, and maybe buy some kitchen shears, and get them free or what not.

So far i am more than happy with my purchase. Could the Victorinox have been a better chef's knife than that Chicago Cultery? probably so. Is it that much better that i need to pay for 1 knife what i paid for almost the whole set? NO.

Just make sure you use some mineral oil on the wood handles. These knives are extremely well built, and have a good heft to them. I sharpened them with the steel, and they cut like a razor.

If you are really set on using all wood knives, then get the chicago cultery steak knife set as well. NOTE: these do not qualify for the 4-for3 promotion.

I purchased the Miu steak knives instead, note that they qualify for the 4-for3 promotion as well.


Hope this helps.

I'm not the OP, I'm not even a meat dept manager, but its hard to beat J.A. Henckels knives for the money, I think. I like their full-tang pieces, like these, but they've got stamped items that are a lot cheaper and still very good quality.

The most important thing about keeping good steak knives it to take care of them. I don't care what the instructions say, do not put them in the dishwasher. Hand wash, dry immediately, and store in a good wooden rack.

No idea what kind of knifes you need. I like this set. I avoid serrated knives as they tear the meat.

Lodge is pretty much the go to cast iron pan. It's relatively cheap, but it is a pretty simple design after all.

You have 75 bucks left in your budget, I would get this:


Resist the urge to go cheap on instant read thermometer, it was the single best thing I purchased that drastically improved nearly all the food I cooked - especially steaks.

u/her_nibs · 3 pointsr/Cooking

If she's spent decades cutting everything with serrated knives, I would definitely include (I agree, skip the sets) some very nice serrated knives -- doesn't matter if what she's cutting would be better cut with something else; anyone who's been around long enough to be a Nana can be safely assumed to have most preferences pretty set in stone.

Amazon.ca is crazy-overpriced for most things, so definitely comparison shop, too.

You should also assume that her old knives are not going to hit the trash the day she gets the gift, so anything that comes in a block with only enough space for the ones in the set leaves her with having to have two knife storage spots. You might throw in a 'universal' knife block she can put her old ones and the new ones in together.

Try and think about what she will actually use, and what she will actually enjoy, rather than what will seem fancy. If you suspect she will keep using steak knives for a lot of things, a funky coloured set of Laguiole ones with the little bees (shouldn't be too hard to find a Canadian supplier; they're pretty common in kitchen shops here in Ottawa) might amuse her...

u/hailtheface · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I'd personally go with non-serrated knives. I like food to be sliced like a razor, not rough sawed. Some people don't mind this nuance, or care to do the upkeep necessary to have straight bladed steak knives that work properly. These knives are supposed to be very good, and are just around your price range. These are a bit cheaper and should be just fine for your purposes, however the handle is reported to be a little rough. Both sets can be sharpened easily as well.

*edit: Forgot to put in second link.

u/ARKnife · 2 pointsr/knives

I've heard really good feedback about the Laguiole en Aubrac knives, but they are obviously high end and expensive.

I personally use a set of 4 inexpensive serrated Laguioles (not even sure they are made in France), and they surprisingly hold really well and work great for cutting on a ceramic plate.

u/joek440 · 1 pointr/Browns

Lots of joke answers but the most interesting Browns product I saw this season were these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HRVTYSS/ref=twister_dp_update?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

Pretty fun tailgate item

u/browneyedgirl79 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Congratulations on your new job!!

I love my meat medium rare. My father used to say "Slap its ass, put it on a plate and send it out for me to consume, please!"

Obviously, I'm not THAT adventurous, lol!

I'd love to have dinner with /u/LaLocaChristina, /u/feralspirit, & /u/StoryDone so we could chat more about stuff and things.

Kitchen & steak related

No soup for you!

Thank you for the contest. :)

u/easy_mak · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Global Knives are pretty awesome (but expensive!). I personally have only used the G2 Chef's Knife when I lived with my brother who owned it and it was glorious. Maybe worth checking out: http://www.amazon.com/Global-GSF-4023-Piece-Steak-Knife/dp/B000RIAW80/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408729957&sr=8-1&keywords=global+steak+knives

u/skipper14 · 1 pointr/steak

I was looking for steak knives last year and wanted something super sharp and a fine edge, not serrated. I wanted something to cleanly cut through the meat, not tear it, which is what serrated does.

I ordered these and I've been very happy. They're super sharp. I did resharpen them last month with a simple knife sharpener than you pull the knife through and they were just as sharp after that as the day I bought them. I wouldn't hesitate to order another set.


u/FalseHope4All · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Congrats! I like my prime rib medium rare. My favorite is when its cooked over hickory. Can't have steak without steak knives.

/u/bubblybreath would you like to join me for dinner?

No soup for you!

u/indifferentusername · 3 pointsr/chefknives

Opinel make some with olive wood handles that sharpen up easily. I love the Opinel convex grind, and 12C27 is better steel than most steak knives get.

Maybe Arcos? I like their meat-cutting knives.

u/Zeppelanoid · 1 pointr/Cooking

You have a few options:

Two skillets on top of each other like this. Make sure to pre-heat both skillets and make sure to not touch the hot skillet with your bare hands.

Get a bacon press like this.

Wrap a brick in foil and use it like a bacon press.

Buy a George Foreman grill/similar product.

u/PinkiePromise · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have several kitchen items on my list <3 thanks so much for doing this!

This cutting board comes to mind! Has lots of nifty compartments and is generally well made! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K5343TM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_k3LyCbXA09G9Q

Also! This is a little bit more than $20 but I wanted to show you for the inspiration- Gorgeous flatware! And matching steak knives if you want to complete the look!

u/pedrotheterror · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Got these recently and we love them. The are holding up great and are the same knives most steak places use in Argentina/Paraguay.


u/pianistonstrike · 4 pointsr/blogsnark

I don't know a ton about knives but we have these Wusthof knives and they're pretty nice.

u/Pseud0pod · 1 pointr/Cooking

I had to buy knives when my roommate moved out a while ago, and was very happy with these choices:

Kyocera Ceramic Paring Knife

Victorinox 10" Chef's Knife

Henckels Steak Knifes

The chef and paring knife are all you really need for food preperation, and the serrated knifes are good for when you serve meat that needs to be cut, like steak.

u/pagingjimmypage · 5 pointsr/Cooking

I can't speak to the quality of the knives but these are the same ones on amazon with a ton of reviews that generally look positive


u/EbolaFred · 2 pointsr/Cooking

My bad. We brought the Henkels but returned them because they felt weird in the hand.

Ended up with Chicago Cutlery

Sorry about that. The manufacturer stamp is pretty small and when I put my glasses on to check the model number I was like, damn! Not Henkels!

u/catlovinglesbian · 2 pointsr/steak

i bought these knives and have been extremely happy with them. they cut through steak like lasers.

u/OliverBabish · 2 pointsr/food

These are just barely serrated, but I totally agree with you - they're the Wusthof 8-piece set

u/AnotherDrZoidberg · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I would use a cast iron pan, with a weight on top. My cast iron came with something like this I use for this purpose.

u/cerdmier · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I have these and see no reason why they won't hold up. They are great!

u/BeautifulDuwang · 1 pointr/nfl

No problem! Happy to help with any knife/kitchen stuff.

>then I'll just buy a separate steak knife set

Going to just throw this out here.


u/iheartschadenfreude · 1 pointr/Cooking

I really don't like how they cut steak - a good non-serrated blade is much more to my preference (of course, this is purely subjective, to each their own).

I'm about to pull the trigger on this Messermeister set to replace this serrated set, I'm just looking for a set of knife guards for the Messermeister's...
