Wusthof Gourmet Kitchen Essentials Set, 6 piece

Wusthof Gourmet Kitchen Essentials Set, 6 piece : Wusthof presents a best-of selection of popular Wusthof cooking tools to save you time and hassles in your own kitchen. The Wusthof Gourmet 6-Piece Kitchen Essentials Set includes a Gourmet 4" utility knife, slotted spatula and kitchen shears, plus a waiter's corkscrew, bamboo cutting board and a 2-stage manual sharpener. Wusthof Gourmet cutlery is the premier choice of culinary chefs and precisely cut from a single sheet of high-carbon stainless-steel, then precision-stamped and perfected with laser-edge technology. New Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) has increased sharpness by 20% with twice the edge retention. Triple-riveted to the full tang, the 4" utility knife allows a comfortable grip and superb performance. The sturdy blade of the slotted spatula easily drains unwanted grease and drippings from fried, grilled and sauteed foods. The come-apart kitchen shears in the Wusthof 6-piece kitchen essentials set feature bevel- and serrated-edge blades of high-carbon stainless-steel to cut apart chicken, snip herbs and cut parchment paper. Using the adjustable gripper teeth below the handles, the shears also open jar lids and bottle caps. The shears handles pull apart to clean or sharpen blades. The 6-piece kitchen utensil set's solid bamboo cutting board is perfectly sized for cutting cheese, meats and other snack foods with smooth efficiency. Made of bamboo, a naturally-renewable and highly-sustainable resource, the compact board protects both your worktop and your knife's cutting edge. The Wusthof waiter's corkscrew offers an anti-slip coating and an elongated lever for fast and simple opening of wine bottles. The fold-down wine accessory includes a foil cutter with a hardened steel wheel that smoothly slices through the foil. The manual knife sharpener's first stage carbide slot (coarse) resets a dull blade and the second stage ceramic slot (fine) finishes the edge to a honed, polished sharpness. Hand wash cutlery.

I bought this little set (along with a Wusthof knife block and knives) for my niece who recently announced her engagement. When I gave it to her she hugged the cutting board and ran her hand over it and said, "Oooh, my first cutting board!" I think that's a great start, don't you?
