I have found that having a GREAT set of kitchen knives makes me a little more willing to spend the time in cooking from scratch. I remember reading somewhere that 60% off dinner prep time is spent chopping, so this is a great investment into something that can really save you some time.
These Cookplus German Steel 8-Piece Knife Set with Micarta Handles (guaranteed by Christmas) are on sale over at Graveyard Mall for $29.99 (shipping will be about $7) – you can compare to retail prices of OVER $100. Now I haven’t seen this exact set anywhere else, so it can be a little tricky to make a good price comparison, but I checked out a few individual pieces that were selling over on Amazon, and this looks like a great comparison price wise. (The reviews were all 4.5-5 stars as well – nice!)
