A good knife set is sharp, durable and has just about every type of knife you may need to make a meal. And this budget-friendly McCook stainless steel knife set fits the bill. Whether you’re a new cook or an experienced at-home chef, this is one set you should consider getting.

The set includes an 8-inch chef knife, 8-inch slicing knife, 5-inch santoku knife, 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, 5-inch utility knife, 3.5-inch paring knife, six 4.5-inch steak knives and two pairs of kitchen shears. You can store them all in the included hardwood knife block with a built-in sharpener.

Amazon shoppers rave about these knives in the reviews. The high carbon stainless steel cutlery is tarnish-resistant and rust-resistant. The knives also go through at least five checks before shipping out, according to the brand’s product description. Plus, with a built-in sharpener, you can retain the knives’ sharpness as you use them.

Keep in mind, however, to keep any set of knives in tip-top shape, you should never put them in the dishwasher. Hand-washing is best. You should always make sure that they’re completely clean and dry before storing, too.

While a sharp knife may seem more dangerous, it’s actually safer to use in the kitchen. When slicing produce, a dull knife can potentially slip off and lead you to cut yourself, but a sharp one can easily slice right through. So, if you have some dull knives you need to replace, consider this McCook 15-Piece knife block set.
