Instead of wasting money on a set of mediocre knives (half of which you'll never use), you can create your own set of Test Kitchen all stars.
Published Nov. 1, 2011.
This “all-star” set of test kitchen favorites (all best-in-class winners in past tests) fits neatly on our favorite universal knife block, designed to hold any variety of blades securely. Best of all, at about $440, this ideal collection costs less than many prepackaged knife block sets.
(For an even less expensive option, a seven-piece collection that includes Best Buys can be had for just $219.84. See related testing.)
The mission of America’s Test Kitchen Reviews is to find the best equipment and ingredients for the home cook through rigorous, hands-on testing. We stand behind our winners so much that we even put our seal of approval on them.
