Why is it a good deal?

Similar knife sets can set you back anywhere from $50 to $1,000 (yup, it's true). But you can grab this smartly designed color-coded collection, which comes with a lifetime warranty, for over 60% off. For just $25, we can think of no better culinary gift, whether it's for yourself or a loved one. Anything that ups the kitchen-happiness quotient, solves an everyday problem and makes it easy for you to prep food for family and friends is a cut above.

Why do I need this?

Made with high-quality stainless steel blades and a nonstick coating for easy slicing, the set includes an 8-inch chef's knife, an 8-inch slicing knife, an 8-inch serrated bread knife, a 7-inch santoku knife, a 6.5-inch utility knife and a 3.5-inch paring knife. You will be ready to slice anything, and the pretty pastel colors will look gorgeous in your kitchen.

Each knife comes with a matching blade sleeve to prevent dulling — and to protect your hands while you're rummaging through the kitchen drawer. Not only are the pastel tones a fun pop of color, but they also make it a breeze to identify just the right tool for each task (as well as reduce the risk of cross-contamination during food prep).

What reviewers say

"Where have these been all my life?" said one sharp-eyed reviewer. "I'll admit these were an almost-impulse purchase as I had been stalking them for a while on my shopping list. And when the price went down, I thought, 'Why not?' although I have a drawer full of knives. I'd donate every other knife I own ... in a heartbeat if my husband wouldn't complain. These are a delight."

One happy reviewer said: "This knife set made me a pro in the kitchen. ... They cut like butter. They wash like glass. ... I actually purchased these knives for my husband and my son. My husband is the cook in the house, and my son is learning. I wanted them to have good stuff to use and no more of that cheap junk that you have to saw to cut meat. These knives cut in one little slice. Now I'm in the kitchen cutting up stuff, probably for no good reason."

Another reviewer experienced no dulling or chipping over time: "I've had these knives for one year now. ... Made thin beautiful slices of tomato with the [chef's] knife and sliced warm fresh baked bread with the yellow bread knife. Lovely knives for a great price!"

This reviewer sums it up, saying, "I have so many knives that don't cut. It was a pleasure to finally get a set where the knives are sharp and really do a nice job of cutting. I am very happy."

"They were extremely sharp when they arrived," a final reviewer shared. "I've had them for almost three months, and the two I use the most need to be sharpened." (This No. 1 bestselling Kitchellence 3-Stage Knife Sharpener makes a great add-on and will keep your prized blades working like new for years to come. It's on sale for only $10!)

Over 4,300 Amazon shoppers gave this knife set a perfect five-star rating.
