Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block

I was on the look-out for some great kitchen knives and after reading the great reviews, I decided to purchase the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block.

When the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block arrived, I had to admit that the knives looked good. I suppose buying a set that is linked to a popular television set does have an advantage when you're gunning for the looks factor. The orange handles, which I initially thought would be a major turn off, now adds some color to my kitchen. I also love the birch-wood block.

I started by checking the weight of the knives in the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block and I was pleasantly surprised. They were light in weight without feeling flimsy or cheap. The knives also felt really comfortable in my hand. I work in extreme conditions (or so I'd like to believe since I cook for a hungry family of eight), and I am really happy that the knives don't slip in my hand even if it's wet.

Do they cut well? The Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block passes my high standards. You must, however, know how to sharpen your knives and you must sharpen it well. Otherwise, even the most expensive knives would be a waste. If you do your homework, like I do, I'm sure you'll agree that the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block is a fantastic buy.

Just a word of advice. After I told my best friend about the knives, she bought a set of her own but then she recently complained that they rusted. Of course they rusted! She wasn't washing the knives by hand like she was supposed to. Instead, she stuck the knives in the dishwasher. Stainless steel knives that are of high-quality (meaning they are high in carbon) will indeed rust in the dishwasher. So please, wash the knives in the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block by hand!

If I have a complaint about the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block, it's the knife block. It's not sturdy enough and it wobbles a bit. Not enough to be dangerous but I wish it was more stable.

Otherwise, I highly recommend the Rachael Ray from Furi Cutlery Set with Birchwood Knife Block for all knife nuts out there. This one is worth it.
