Henckels Statement 14-pc Self-Sharpening Knife Set with Block
Pretty much any home cook, this is a set you can't go wrong with.
This is a great looking set of knives with so much utility – a great chef's knife for all purpose chopping, a utility knife for cleaning up mushrooms, a bread knife for your burger buns, and nothing beats a nice pair of kitchen scissors for breaking down chicken. The stainless steel is super durable and low maintenance, and I love that this one comes with a built in sharpener so you can never forget!
