NEW YORK (MainStreet) – For all the 25-piece knife sets you see advertised on infomercials, you might be fooled into thinking you need a block full of cold steel in your kitchen to prepare dinner. But as a general rule, unless you’re running a restaurant you can probably get by with a few knives for most of your chopping and paring.
That’s why you should take a look at the three-knife set being sold at 13deals.com. For $11.99, plus $4.99 shipping and handling, you get 7”, 5” and 3” Santoku knives, plus a bamboo cutting board. The 7” looks like a good go-to chef’s knife, the 3” looks to be your paring knife and the mid-sized knife will suffice for cutting vegetables, or as a smaller chef’s knife when the big one is dirty.
Santoku is a well-respected Japanese knife brand, and while these knives are sufficient for most food prep, the set obviously doesn’t include steak knives, a bread knife or more heavy-duty knives for boning fish, for instance. Still, three quality knives and a nice cutting board for $17 total looks like a good deal if your current knives aren’t getting the job done.
Rather than having a set expiration time for the deal, the products on 13Deals.com are only available while supplies last, so hurry over if this looks good to you.
