Whether a world-famous chef or a home cook, we all notice a good set of knives.
Be it saffron and truffles at a Michelin-starred restaurant or carrots for your 45th lasagne for the week, there is that universal feeling of satisfaction when a well-made kitchen knife cleanly slices, dices and cuts effortlessly.
Gordon Ramsay launched Danish cookware brand, Scanpan, into global view when the multi-Michelin-starred chef revealed he cooked with their pans.
He said the first step was to have the “highest quality, best non-stick cookware set that you can afford,” and it’ll last you a lifetime.
While you may think you can't possibly afford a brand Gordon Ramsay uses, we have a little treat for you ... an amuse-bouche, if you will.
Get your station ready, because MyDeal is offering Scanpan’s famous knife set at a heavily reduced price.
And by heavily reduced, we mean literally sliced.
Once up to an unattainable $899, you can now pick up a cult eight-piece eclipse steel block set for a cool $139.
You may now order everyone to address you as Chef.
The set includes a 9cm paring knife, 11.5cm vegetable knife, 15cm utilty knife, 20cm chef's knife, 20cm bread knife, 20cm carving knife and multi-purpose kitchen shears in a satin finish stainless steel block.
Aside from Gordon Ramsay attesting to the brand’s performance, hundreds of home cooks have revealed the knife set is worth every cent.
“These knives are ridiculously sharp. They're amazing,” one satisfied cook wrote.
“So sharp, weight is fantastic, best knife set I’ve ever owned!” a second revealed.
“Very good quality and looks very stylish,” a third detailed.
Picking it up for a casual $139 is an opportunity you can’t miss.
The Danish brand is one of the most in-demand in the industry, with a wide celebrity clientele to go with it.
And there’s a good reason why.
Their knives are crafted from the finest grade German stainless steel, tempered and hardened to perfection for unique balance and comfort.
The "surgically sharp" precision is due to the "hairline finish" taper-ground cutting edge, making paring, carving, slicing or peeling like cutting through air.
They also have a rounded back of knife blade for increased finger comfort, ergonomic handle design and a new ergonomic bolster to improve chopping grip.
If you’ve ever fantasised about owning elite chefs knives, but never thought you could, this is your time.
In the wise words of Gordon, don’t be an idiot sandwich.
