Shopping for a new cookware set

I am the last born in my family and for as long as I can remember, I have had most things done for me. For instance, when I was moving out, my mother insisted on helping me pack everything I needed. She stayed up for hours helping me pack all my things away and labeled all the boxes so that it would be easy for me to find everything when unpacking.

A few days after I was done unpacking everything, my mother dropped by to take me shopping for a new cookware set. It was the only thing I was missing in my new home. Since she arrived earlier than expected, we decided to check on the top 5 best cookware sets in order to have a rough idea of how much we would have to spend. We checked different online stores and we were amazed at all the available options. How on earth would we choose one out of so many options? My mother suggested reading the cookware set reviews to find out what different users thought about the different sets.

We choose the highest rated cookware sets within our budget and started reading one review after another. By the time we were done, there are three cookware sets that stood out the most for us. These include; Vremi 15- Piece Non-stick cookware set, Cook N Home 12-Piece Stainless Steel Set and Farberware High-Performance 17-Piece non-stick set. These cookware sets had amazing reviews and the great thing about them was the fact that they were really affordable. We ended up purchasing the Farberware High-performance 17-piece non-stick set because it had more pieces and many users liked the fact that it was easy to clean. I am not a big fan of washing dishes so I knew this was the right set for me. I got the best cookware and I didn’t even have to leave my house.

Why You Should Also Consider Utility Knife As Your Main Kitchen Tools

A utility knife is a great beginner’s knife if you’re just starting to familiarise yourself around the kitchen or if you’re recommending it to your friends. People often ignore this knife because if you have a paring knife or a kitchen knife, I don’t see why you need to use another medium sized utility knife.

However, a utility knife can be considered as an all-purpose knife. It can be use for cutting vegetables, preparing chickens as well as peeling fruits. Basically, it saves up your time from using a chef’s knife and a paring knife for an individual task. Based on my own experience of using many utility knives, three of them made a lasting impression on me.

 

Shun Classic 6” Utility Knife

If you’ve never heard the brand ‘Shun’, it is fine. The Shun knife looks very attractive and professional as it is made up of hardened Japanese steel cutting core which is then cladded with 33 layers of stainless steel. It has a very thin blade and the handle is made up of PakkaWood which is connected to the blade. It gives effortless slicing through meat especially.

The shape of this utility knife is very symmetrical and it’s very flexible to use. Each of my family members have different sizes of hands and I have yet to hear them complain while using this particular knife. I feel that this knife gives me a well-balanced feeling and it is also corrosion resistant. Even though the knife doesn’t need sharpening, I do sharpen it once a year to maintain it’s condition as I do to all my knives.

I was a bit hesitant to try out this knife because I’ve never used a Serrated knife before. Now, this knife’s blade is made out of high-carbon stainless steel. I’ve always had a problem with slicing a thin slice of tomatoes. However, this knife did the job for me. The handle is also comfortable to hold  on if you’re using it for longer period.
