Henckels Professional Series Knife Set

Henckels Professional Series Knife Set

With cutlery — as with most cooking items — you can buy on the cheap and replace often. Or, you can lay down some cash and buy a set of knives that will possibly last longer than you do. The Henckels Professional Series 12-Piece Knife Set ($500) is one of the latter. It includes nine ice-hardened high-carbon steel blades that are triple riveted to their handles, plus shears, a 9" sharpening steel and a beech wood block holder with slots for 17 items. This Uncrate editor has had his for over five years, and they're still sharp.

  • Oil and Vinegar Cruet Set

    We love to cook here at Uncrate, and anything to help us look and perform better in the kitchen is great for us. Take for instance this Oil and Vinegar Cruet Set by Achille Castiglioni ($470). Manufactured in Italy by Alessi, the cruets feature an angular design made with stainless steel and crystal, held in a complementing stand. A set so pretty, it can make that rare jump from meal preparation to meal presentation.

  • Waring MX1500S Blender

    Sure, the Daiquiri Whacker gas powered blender is cool, but you really need a quality blender for drinks that can actually be used indoors. The absolute best (and priciest) that we've seen is the Waring MX1500S ($830). The commercial-grade blender has a heavy-duty 3-HP motor, LCD display with blue backlight, 4 reprogrammable blending stations, and a sleek 64 oz. stainless steel container. The best part, however, is the blender's unique sound enclosure for quiet operation and assurance that you won't wake up the neighbors while making that mangorita at 2 AM.
