As someone who started obsessing with cutlery in the 90s, it’s hard not to recommend a chef’s knife from Wusthof. I’ve included a side by side photo of my first Wusthof 9” Classic chef’s knife I got back in the late 90’s and my new 8” Classic, and as you can see they last. The Classic line is... Read more

I have owned a handful of knives by Wusthof, but never a chef knife. After 3 months of using this knife it has replaced all of my chef knives on my block. It is an incredibly well made forged knife and came super sharp out of the box. After 3 months cutting almost everything from pumpkin to pork shoulder this... Read more

Great guy!
5 /5
I had narrowed my choices between two high end brands but each had different options and features, and honestly, I was overwhelmed. I posed a question on Google and Curated popped up so I filled out a bit of information. Admittedly I was snarky because I thought it would be a bot! Brad isn't a bot! LoL He's quite knowledgeable and helped me sort through the differences and found what best suited my needs. I'm very pleased with my experience with him and Curated and am looking forward to my next two purchases already chosen with his help. Thanks!|

Mike was great!
5 /5
This made shopping for cookware so much easier! Mike took into consideration my needs and made great recommendations. His finds were well though out and the explanations from Annette made it easy to follow on with questions to tailor the recommendations even further. I would definitely recommend and will probably use again in the future.

David was knowledgeable, patient with my questions and responsive!
5 /5
It is especially important to me that a salesperson is not pushy…I wasn’t sure at first, but I had a great Curated experience. David clearly has cooking experience to answer my questions the way he did, and he did research (temp tolerances) when he didn’t know a detail. So helpful! This was a great shopping experience; thank you!

Excellent First Experience!
5 /5
I stumbled upon Curated through a Google search when trying to find a new blender that would handle items like smoothies and soups better than my standard $30 countertop model now that we had started drinking/eating more of them. I was matched with Mike and he was amazing! He was responsive and accommodating to my schedule. He asked relevant questions which allowed him to make some great recommendations. When I made a choice and found the same item on sale on another site he was even kind enough to price match it for me. Mike has ensured that I will be back to Curated for all of my relevant needs in the future as we buy a new home at the end of this year and beyond.
