We'll Buy Cutco Forever

Pros:very sharp, great warrantee

Cons:expensive; must be bought from a Cutco salesman

The Bottom Line: It's hard to do better than a Cutco knife!


My fiancee and I went to a product show (for kitchen products) with a friend on a lark. She knew going in that she would be looking for good knives, and we stuck around while she listened to the Cutco salesman's pitch. We were so impressed that we bought a whole set, even though we hadn't intended to. And we haven't been disappointed since. They're very sturdy and sharp, and they're easy to sharpen even when you do dull them. I've never had such an easy time slicing things before. They get a little dull after slicing something very starchy, like sweet potatoes, but you can buy an easy sharpener from Cutco to go with them that takes care of that in minutes. If the knives ever get very dull, you can have them professionally sharpened by Cutco for the cost of shipping!

Cutco knives have resin handles, so they won't split like wood. The knife blades extend all the way through the handles and are bolted in, so they can't be pulled out. The serrated blades have what's called a "Double D" blade, and heck, we've found that we can cut straight down through vegetables with it without any sawing motion - it's that sharp!

The kitchen shears are fantastic, and will cut through the rib cage of a chicken with ease. The spatula-like spreader is great for everything from butter to jam. You're supposed to avoid getting mayonnaise on it or it can discolor, though.

The guarantee is fabulous. If anything goes wrong, they'll replace your knives. Even if the thing that goes wrong is user stupidity, they'll replace them at half-price. That's how difficult these knives are to damage!

My only real complaint is that you can't buy Cutco in the store. If we could we would have gotten around to buying a couple more by now (we still don't have their cleaver). However, we just recently got a copy of their catalog (available from their web site), and we're drooling over their new deluxe set: it's one of everything. Really. Butcher's knife, cleaver, vegetable knife, paring knives - there really is one of everything in there. If we ever manage to save up for it (it's $1600!), we'll be getting one. (Please note: (added later) All you Cutco reps reading this, our local representative's phone number came with the catalog. You can all stop emailing me with your names & phone numbers. Really. There's already been about 10 of you. Enough already. I appreciate the helpfulness, but I'm unlikely to hand out my credit card information to any person who emails me out of the blue. Thank you and have a nice day...)

We've had our cutcos for more than three years now, and there's not a scratch on them. And believe me, we are not easy on our kitchen tools.
