Independence Day Series American Flag Print Family Matching Sets Review
Love Green "Jack": Why do I say these are a nice way to start? Well, they are great knives, but after using them I think you will want to progress to the OXO MV55-Pro.I started with these and really liked them. Nice handles, good cut. But then I bought the Pro...and well, they REALLY live up to their name.But these are a good inexpensive way to "try out" the OXO line.
Not my real name guy: I own this set and it was a complete waste of money. I was originally attracted to these knives because I own a number of other Oxo Good Grips products and, with the exception of the garlic press (which has a mediocre design and rubber handles that fall off), I have been very pleased with the quality of their products. There are two problems with these knives:1) The blades are made from cheap stainless steel that will not take or keep an edge. They are dull to the point of being dangerous and notwithstanding several attempts with my diamond sharpener, could not be made sharp. I would use a serated steak knife before I would use one of these knives.2) The handles are very poor in design and construction. They have a portion of rubber ridges that are very soft and so flexible that they prevent obtaining a decent grip on the knife. They also are not shaped in a particularly ergonomic fashion and appear, as other people have commented, as if they would not stay long on the knife under any sort of heavy use.Avoid these knives - there are a multitude of better alternatives out there. Although I have no recommendations for a replacement for the small chef's knife, I do have a recommendation if you are looking for a good moderately priced paring knife: buy one of the Henckels or Victorinox plastic-handled 3" paring knives available here for around four dollars. These parers (I have one of each brand and they are similar in design, shape and quality) will take a nice edge, fit the hand much better and are less expensive, to boot. If you're willing to splurge a bit, I can highly recommend Kyocera's 3" ceramic paring knife. It will set you back thirty bucks or so, but it will have the sharpest edge you've ever experienced on a knife, sharp enough to cut a grape into a slice that is a fraction of a millimeter thick, thin enough to be completely transparent.
Amazon Customer: I don't think these are the best seafood sets I have used but they do the job and look nice.
A Mom: Picking Crab is such a pain in the behind but this is a nice set. I also use the spoon ends to dig out the tops of strawberries.
B. Lewandowski "Grandma B": If you have ever tried eating lobster or crab without the proper utensils you know what a trial it can be. These are the perfect tools for getting at the good stuff!
