Cutco and this ‘Domestic Goddess’

 

My first introduction with Cutco was when my hubby and I moved into our first apartment together. Unpacking the kitchen boxes, I came across the cutlery and noticed a lone knife without a match in the pile. Looking at our new and matchy-matchy sets around me, I didn’t think it would be an issue to throw out this lone knife.

Yet, just as I was giving it a dirty look while walking to the garbage, my hubby lept into the room like a man saving a baby from a fire. “WHAT are you doing? That’s a CUTCO knife!“.

What I didn’t know at the time {besides that I was about to throw out The World’s Finest Cutlery}, was that this table knife would become my absolute favorite to this day. It’s one that is used daily in this house when all those other ‘new ones’ weren’t used even half as much.

I reached for this lone yet brilliant table knife above all others, even 14 years later. Then one time I spotted a friends ultimate Cutco knife block collection, sitting gloriously on her kitchen counter. I decided that someday that precious would be mine. Ahhh, my precious.

So, what happens when a brand I already admire asks me to do a feature on My Organized Chaos? Insert big silly grin, lots of squeeing and happiness at the chance to dive deeper into the company and the products. Match made in heaven.

cutco studio set reviewInternets, I introduce you to ….. {drumroll}
my CUTCO Studio Set with Block , arv $429 including a small poly prep board, wooden knife block and the following CUTCO products:

  • 2-3/4″ Paring Knife
  • Trimmer
  • Spatula Spreader
  • 6-3/4″ Petite Carver

I would recommend this set as a starter set, as the variety covers so many uses. Actually, I can’t think of a kitchen task that can’t be done with one of these including tools.

So, what’s the big deal about Cutco?

For kitchen use, there’s no comparison for quality. Once my hubby showed me how the blade on our Cutco table knife differs from others, the double blade being the most obvious.

If I could describe cutting with Cutco? ‘Like Butter’ {said in my best SNL accent}.

Steaks, fruits, somewhat frozen meats and fish, cheese – anything. It’s like cutting butter. And while Cutco knives are expensive, they really are worth any penny spent. Anyone that uses Cutco will agree to that, especially when you are able to compare between brands in your home. Reality is, there is no comparison.

So I adore the knives, I’ve gushed a lot here. Yet as you can see there’s a Spatula Spreader in the set above. What’s great about this one, is that I can spread the mayo for sandwiches or peanut butter on toast, then using the same tool – cut. Before I’d use spatula and knife and now I can do it all smoothly with one spreader. It’s one of those products that saves time and energy, and dishes to wash.

Any Cutco customer will appreciate the Forever Guarantee on their products, which can’t be beat. In other words, if I pass down my Cutco products to my extremely lucky kids or grandkids one day, they still will all be guaranteed, even with no receipt. That includes fixing or if that’s not possible, replacing for free. How’s that for bang for the buck {and never needing to buy these items ever again}?!

Another great offer by the company is the Sharpening offer. While my original Cutco Table Knife has never needed sharpening, at any time the company will sharpen your knives and return them to you.

Also great to know: Cutco gives back! The company supports the Children’s Wish Foundation, a percentage of the Homemaker+ 8 sets and bigger sets goes to CWF. I also learned at anyone can become a Cutco consultant, making their passion their business, selling these fine products from home.

Compared back to when I was more of a kitchen novice when I actually went to throw a Cutco in the garbage {the horror, the complete shame}, I’ve learned a thing or two in my journey to domestic goddess {heh}. For quality, service and guarantee, no one will come between this gal and her Cutco. That I know for certain.

    I also am a mom to three girls.. two of them being twins! 🙂

  15. I’m loving the Super Shears. I have yet to find a pair of kitchen shears to stand up to the rigorous use they receive, these sound perfect!

  17. I would love to have the traditional cheese knife. How glad were you that your hubby stopped you from throwing that knife out, eh?!?

  21. I love the table knives…if they weren’t so expensive I’d get some in a heartbeat…they are truly awesome.

  22. I am so pleased for you Tammi, the knives and block look like superior products. I noticed that they requested to follow ‘wisteriagirl’ on twitter yesterday and I have to say I was so happy! I have seen Cutco at trade shows and I go to these a lot because my brother-in-law owns a company that makes wallbeds, office furniture and kitchens. To be honest, there isn’t a product on Cutco’s website that I wouldn’t want but I am in serious need of a quality paring knife. I am having a bake sale on Sunday at a market down the street from where we live and this would be more than handy to have on hand…I love the Kitchen Classics Gift Box, a perfect starter set for my kitchen. I have never had any really good knives. My Mum bought me a carving knife, paring knife and a bread board one year…I think I accidentally threw out the paring knife because it just…disappeared!! That was over 20 years ago!

  23. 5″ Petite Santoku would be a great replacement for my well-worn serrated tomato knife

    Homemaker + 8 Set with Block

  25. I would love to have a sharpener for the knives i all ready own that are getting so dull.

  27. Dedicated Chef Cookware set for sure., but my husband would use them more than me lol!

  28. Superior knives, I could only dream of owning a whole set ! I would love the 5″ Petite Santoku knife !

  29. my sister-n-law has the entire set but I would be sooo happy with any one of these knifes. She says they are the best

  30. It’s ok to say they’re sexy, right? Because, c’mon, they are. I love a sharp knife.

    And I mean that in the least Dexter-ish way.

  31. 6PC Kitchen Tool set would be great to have! (But who’s got 308$ to blow on spatula’s? lol)

    Awesome Giveaway! Thanks!

  32. the salad mates set!! But there are SO many that I would like. I don’t have good quality knives. Most of mine came from the dollar store.

  33. I would really like one ot their cheese knives. I have never had one. Its not too easy cutting it with a butter knife like I have been doing for all these years!

  34. I would love to try the super shears. I love the 5pc gardening set too – it would make a beautiful gift.

  35. I would love to own the Decicated chef cookware set, but at $1715 it’s waaaay out of my budget and comfort level to purchase it!

  36. Item #1504 cheese knife! I actually already have one but would want another one for backup. It’s the best knife ever!

  37. Ooooo…beautiful knives…I’d LOVE to have some fancy knives that would be just mine…everyone else in the house can use the crappy ones. Mwa ha ha ha ha…

  38. I would love to own the 4 peice steak knife set in the gift box this would be the perfect gift for me on Mother;s Day. My mother has 10 Cutco knives and they are incredible. I have arthritis and have trouble with knives in general however her Cutco paring knife slices with such precision and so little effort on my part that i can peel an entire bag of potatoes with ease. I am not prepared to wait to inherit these knives so I am going to aquire them myself one at a time and pass them on to my kids.

  39. I would love to have the Spatula Spreader! How many times have I used two different knives for one sandwich? Too many times and the spatula spreader would stop that.

  40. I really like the look of their “mini cheese knife”. My current knives can’t cut nice even slices.
