I researched these online to get an idea about the quality. Norpro seems to manufacture a lot of commercial kitchen items of stainless steel, and a few cutlery pieces. These have a good weight, and they fit well in my hand (I don't have very big hands though). The blades are stamped X50CrMoV 15, which is a molybdenum-chromium vanadium steel, also called German steel, which is apparently the same steel used by the famous German knives we all have heard of. I understand there is an even better grade of steel out there, but for my purposes these surpass what I was looking for--a decent set with good quality that I could grab for quick prep when I didn't want to get into the good knives we have. I have yet to use the special peeling knife with the concave blade, but it should be useful for paring and peeling veggies. I am pleased they were such a good buy.

This is a great little knife set. It is extremely sharp. The only draw back is that there is no holder for all the various knives.

As someone that cooks for a living I give this set high marks. Is it comparable to far more expensive professional grade knives? Absolutely not! But the quality is far better than the 90%+ knives that the average consumer owns. I actually bought this set to carry with me when I travel. I frequently stay places that have kitchens. Almost always the cutlery at these places are a joke. Understandably if these places provided high quality cutlery, it would "disappear" or be destroyed. At the price of this set the only embarrassing part is the tattoo graphics on the blade covers. The quality of the knives and covers as well as the weight are an extreme bargain for the price charged. Excellent value for the price.

The solid steel blade from the handle to the tip of the knife is a sign of quality. I haven't bought knives in so long, I didn't realize that my other set was so dull. I am impressed, and you will be too.

Good set of knives. Sharp. Easy to Clean. I like the fact theres a different knife for just about every type of cutting. Plus they are labeled to ensure you use the one intended. :)

Well, this is going to be a mixed review of the product. The product itself is fine. We have owned these knives for years and they are great as far as what they are intended for. I went with price as if you read the blurb on the tri-color knives and the red knife set they both say SIX included. This product includes 3 knives and 3 covers. The red set includes 6 knives and 6 covers yet the title is the same and the product info is the same. My only dis-satisfaction is the false representation of the wording. They count the knife covers as "product"...who keeps paper knife covers...I have a magnet on my wall that holds the knives so its a useless piece of paper not worth $xx.xx. I Was given a $x credit but they screwed up the second order as well...so expecting this as a gift for my family was disappointing as I did not get what I paid for and ordered.

I like these knives in general (look/quality/feel). Had one paring knife with full set of Farberware Pro knives. The paring knife broke (tip broke off) when using it to pry something that was not all that rigid, so a bit concerning...but we will be purchasing another paring knife to go with the set we already have. I wish I could just buy one paring knife and not 4, (checked ebay too but this combo and a couple of other combos with knives we don't need are all I can find). Will update the review if the next one doesn't last. All other knives are fine. Saw another review that said this wasn't very sharp...I tend to agree but after sharpening lightly it works fine.

I ordered the peeler/knife set and at first received only the knife. Overstock handled the replacement very efficiently. The knife blade is short, for small jobs only. It's sharp, but doesn't seem sharper than my other knives. The peeler is very sharp and peels, but it's awkward to hold--seems the blade's too big for me to use comfortably.

I ordered a new knife set because my other knife set (from Walmart) wasn't efficient anymore. I tried sharpening the knives to no avail so I purchased this new one. I absolutely love it. I've actually cut myself a few times trying to cut and chop like the professionals on Food Network. :) Anyway, they were just as I suspected.....sharp and efficient and the lifetime warranty is a BONUS. Happy Chopping!

I had purchased an excellent and quite expensive Santoku knife previously and have used it for everything. I had my first experience with a butternut squash and realized I needed a larger knife but everything I wanted was pricey. When I saw this set, I was apprehensive not being familiar with the name. I have used all of the knives and am very pleased with this set. I am delighted with this purchase.

I love these knives! However, I am finding the long ones are getting dull for cutting bread, and the handle broke on my vegetable knife!!! I used that a lot, and wish I could replace just that one. I don't need a whole new set.

I ordered two sets of these knives for each of our two homes. After reading good online reviews, I was still dubious about the wuality. But, I actually like them. They are sharp, wash nicely in the dishwasher and do a good job. The only knife I am not impressed eith is the little paring knife, it is a bit difficult to control. Otherwise, these are a good buy...especially for the price!!!

I bought this knife set this summer. I use them exclusively and they work well. They all have their strengths and weakness. The slicers are truely great. they pretty much cut anything...The chop and scoop is my personal favorite, light and stays sharp. the Chefs knive is my least fav. it dosent do everythig I want and is cumbersome. I find when cooking I use two or more of the knives, little versatility. The shears are useless, to light no leverage and they are already dull.. It s a good set of knives for the price though

I first found Miracle Blade knives through an infomercial a few years ago and bought a set for what I thought was a reasonable price. They sent me two sets. I use one at home and one at my cabin in the moutnains. The blades are excellent to the purpose, from the thin and flexible "chop and scoop" to the lethal carving and filet blades. The only reason I bought a new set from Overstock.com is that my Chop and Scoop blade got a knick in it from frequent use, and I wanted another filet knife. I could not believe how cheap they were. I have paid four times more for a carrving knife alone that was nowhere near as effective.

These knives are amazing! Very sharp, well balanced. The bigger one is certainly big, but it's perfect for chopping larger veggies like onions and eggplant. (I know a lot of women who reviewed said this was too big for them, and their boyfriend/husband could use it - I'm an average-sized female and don't find this knife challenging, so definitely don't let those comments dissuade you.) Really great knife set, definitely worth a try!

As a general rule I don't like cheap knives but I have to say I really like these. I love the different shapes and sizes that come with this set and wish I could find this versatility in the german knife companies. I hesitate to give a rating on durability as I have not had them long enough to knowbut they seem pretty well made and very sleek. Bought them as a gift and had to re-order a couple more sets as I kept the first one.

I have a problem keeping a sharp knife, and since I have joint pain it's been very hard for me. These knives are a HUGE help!

Knives are amongst the most important tools in the kitchen and will last a lifetime when well-maintained. Kitchen knife blades are typically made of high-carbon stainless steel alloys, which stay well-sharpened and are easy to maintain. However, some knives are made of pure carbon steel, which keep a sharper edge but are also prone to rust and discoloration. Regardless of what type of kitchen cutlery you prefer, care guidelines remain the same. Proper care of kitchen cutlery ensures a long life of use.
However much kitchens may have changed over the years, quality cutlery remains a kitchen essential. With the right cutlery pieces and accessories, you can make your kitchen a mecca of great homemade meals. This cutlery buying guide will help you choose which knives and accessories your kitchen needs.

Dinner tables are set differently depending on the type of dinnerware and what food is served. Casual dinner table settings provide each person with the three basic pieces of silverware while formal dinner table settings provide guests with a separate piece of silverware for each course served. Plates, bowls, silverware, napkins and glasses are all part of the necessary dinnerware for setting the table. Having separate dinnerware sets for both formal and casual dining events is very helpful for setting the table appropriately.
Whether you're planning a formal dinner party at home or need to know the proper way to set a formal table for a larger event, such as a wedding reception or charity event, you'll need to know the items to include and the steps to follow to get it right. If you've never done it before, don't worry; no experience is necessary. You will need enough formal dinnerware, also known as place settings, as well as enough flatware and stemware to accommodate each of your guests.
An elegant table setting sets the tone for a meal, guides your guests through the courses and informs them of what's to come. With the many choices in table settings, you may be hesitant about what would be right for your kitchen and dining room. A table setting includes dinnerware, glassware and flatware, along with any serveware and decorations you may include. Each place setting needs certain items, depending on the formality of the meal. We recommend having enough dinnerware, glassware and flatware to create eight to 12 place settings. With this table setting buying guide, you'll be able to sort through the selections in our kitchen and dining department to create beautiful table settings for the special occasions in your home.
Hosting a dinner party is a lot of fun, whether you are just having friends over for a small celebration or family over to share a holiday meal. You likely already own most of the dinnerware, glasses and kitchen linens you need, and setting a dining table is a golden opportunity to use your fine kitchen linens and formal dinnerware that may have been collecting dust in your closet. While setting a table for 12 can be a bit intimidating, it is not a difficult or lengthy process, and your guests will be impressed by your hosting talents and knowledge of conventional etiquette.
For some people, setting a proper table remains one of those dark and mysterious areas in home decor, bogged down by arcane rules. However, contemporary place settings need not be overly fussy. Every piece need not match exactly, as long as every person gets a complete place setting. You can keep the look elegant by setting tableware according to traditional arrangements.
When selecting flatware, the most important qualities to be aware of are design and metal. These features affect the flatware's cost, durability and maintenance. You'll want to have enough flatware to serve eight to 12 people, plus a few more in case a piece is dropped during the meal and your guest needs a clean replacement. You may want to buy a large set of flatware if you plan on having several guests. There are several flatware pieces you may need, depending on what you serve in the meal and how formal it is; purchase flatware sets to get most of the basic pieces. Remember to care for your flatware appropriately so it always retains its luster.
If you are planning a formal dinner or a holiday party, setting one or more round dining tables is a smart way to design your occasion. With round dining tables, everyone can see each other and socialize easily. When setting round dining tables with formal dinnerware, there are few simple rules of dining etiquette to follow to make sure everyone gets their proper tableware. If you are throwing a formal dinner or holiday party, a well-set table creates a formal ambiance or a festive vibe for your guests to enjoy.
