Kuhn Rikon Knives Giveway

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen cooking, baking and creating food. Having the right tools in the kitchen is imperative especially when it comes to knives and utensils. Food preparation before cooking is the most important part of any recipe and having the right type of knives makes the preparation smooth and easy. All my kitchen knives over the years have become blunt and failed to perform well so when I was sent a set of kitchen knives from Kuhn Rikon I was over the moon.



The Kuhn Rikon knives are made from Authentic Japanese carbon stainless steel; they all have non-stick coating on them to ensure that food does not stick to the blade.There are different types of knives for using on different types of food:
  • Paring Knife-perfect for slicing cheese, peeling an apple or chopping vegetables
  • Serrated utility knife- perfect for slicing smooth skinned fruits and vegetables, bread or meat
  • Chefs knife-perfect for slicing meat, vegetables, fruit and cheese.
  • Bread knife-perfect for slicing bread with its sharp long serrated blade
  • Sandwich knife- this knife has two sides the smooth side for spreading and the serrated side for cutting and slicing.
The knives come in 5 vibrant colours; fuchsia, green, red, black and purple together with a matching safety sheath for safe storage and transportation and protecting the blade from getting damaged when the knife is not in use. All the knives are guaranteed for two years and are dishwasher safe.



The knives can be purchased in a set of four or separately. You can buy them on line or from many supermarkets and homeware stores. Prices start from as little as £ 4.50.

I would like to thank Kuhn Rikon for sending me the set of lovely colourful knives. They have become a favourite part of my kitchen ware. I can now glide through my tomatoes and slice them perfectly; my fresh bread is now beautifully sliced and does not end in a crumpled mess on my bread board. I am able to julienne my veg to perfection due to the sharp paring knife and chopping vegetables for stir fries has become a joy with my chefs knife. Of course I can’t forget the sandwich prep, now my sandwich knife spreads and cuts all in one and it’s so useful.
All the views and opinions given in this post are my own and unbiased.

Kuhn Rikon have been very kind, they have offered to send one simplyfood reader a set of knives consisting of a Paring Knife, Serrated utility knife, Chef’s knife and Bread knife.

  21. My veg peeling knife is probably my fave as I use it all the time - admittedly it's not as sharp as it used to be and I could do with replacing most of my knives for the same reason. Also the kettle and cafetiere as I love my fresh coffee (I might have chosen the coffee machine but it isn't used quite as much as the cafetiere, that is on almost constant use!) Fingers crossed hoping for a little bit of luck to come my way now
