Over the course of the last year, your kitchen gear has endured more than the usual wear and tear. (If your cat was saying to itself during the pandemic, why are they always home? your kitchen knives were saying, Can't I even get one night off?). It's time to take stock and make some strategic replacements. First stop: the knife drawer.

As you probably know, cooking with dull or rickety knives is not just annoying but also potentially dangerous. Anyone who has ever experienced a blade sliding off — rather than slicing through — a shiny beefsteak tomato knows the agony of this truth.

If the time has come for you to treat your household to a fresh set of knives, we have some great news for you. The extremely affordable Farberware 22-Piece Stainless Steel Knife Block Set is Amazon's bestselling option, with a 4.4-star rating and nearly 9,000 perfect five-star reviews. It comes with six kitchen knives, six steak knives, a pair of kitchen shears, a set of rubber spatulas and even measuring spoons. And the whole kit 'n' kaboodle is just $19 (was $20). Shocking, right? We think so too.

The food-prep lineup includes an 8-inch chef knife, an 8-inch bread knife, a 5-inch Santoku, a 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, a 4-inch utility knife, and a 3.5-inch paring knife, plus shears. Everything a seasoned chef — or a hopeful beginner — needs. These stainless steel knives feature non-slip handles with a textured-grip to ensure precision and safety while cutting. Perhaps best of all, the knives never need to be sharpened because of their micro-serration design. One of many happy reviewers deems this "...a great set of knives! VERY sharp as well as easy to clean...."

"...I am not used to cutting my veggies with good knives!" says another five-star shopper, of these Farberwares. "They are sharp, and look good also. Does not take up much space on the counter, either. The price for this set is fantastic, and totally worth it."

Another reviewer explains: "I normally buy knives only when I have to, and I was down to a carving knife and a few steak knives. This set was needed very badly... [it] looks great on my counter...they have sliced through everything I've used them on, so far effortlessly. You really can't beat the amount of knives you get and the extra accessories for the price...."

The natural wood block is compact and pretty, and fulfills the dream of having a place for everything and everything in its place. You'll never again find yourself rummaging through a messy drawer in search of that elusive paring knife. "This set of knives has been a lifesaver!" reports another home cook. "Great for everything in the kitchen. Nice sharp blades that still haven’t gone dull. They’ve been awesome at cutting raw meat as well, which is normally a hassle...." 

Hand wash your Farberware knives with warm water and mild detergent so they stay, as one shopper put it, “Lovely, durable, strong, sharp." Life goals for us all. 

For a mere $19, how can you possibly go wrong?
