I don't usually admit that I've been lazing about, shopping online when I should be doing 44 other things around the farm, but if there's a really great bargain involved sometimes a girl has to make an exception.
I'll cut to the point (sorry, couldn't resist). Fifteen minutes ago I had no idea I desperately needed a new knife set, but apparently I did, because I just ordered one from Amazon.com. How could I not? It's a KitchenAid 16-Piece Cutlery Set In A Natural Wood Storage Block, regularly priced at $139.99 but on sale today only for $39.99--and it comes with free super saver shipping. A hundred dollars off is always very nice. Sunday 5/13/07 update: It's on sale today for $49.99 plus free super saver shipping--still a great deal. Click here to read more about it or to place your order.
I wouldn't normally recommend something that hasn't even arrived yet, but again I'm making an exception because I thought it only fair to alert you to this one day deal. The set includes an 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch slicer, 8-inch bread knife, 5-1/2-inch utility knife, 3-1/2-inch paring knife, 8 steak knives, kitchen shears, a sharpening steel, and a handy dandy wood storage block. The handles are available in black or a fun bright red. I ordered black, but I was this close to choosing the red.
I've been extremely happy with the other KitchenAid products I own (you know I'm crazy about my immersion hand blender), and since this collection is backed by KitchenAid's hassle-free, one-year replacement policy there's really nothing to lose. It would also make a wonderful gift. Hmmm. Maybe I should have ordered two.
No matter how you slice it, this is a fantastic deal. Ouch.
Oh my. It must be KitchenAid super sale day at Amazon.com. I just looked at the immersion hand blender in my Farmgirl Fare Favorites Amazon.com store, and it's been reduced from $49.99 to only $29.99 and includes free shipping. Wow. I've never seen it priced that low before. Now this is something I do already own and very highly recommend--in case you missed the 20 or so times I've mentioned it in previous posts. You can read more about it here. This, too, would make an excellent gift.
Okay, I think I'd better head out to the front field and check on the sheep before I find any more deals--or have to come up with an explanation as to why we now own two KitchenAid immersion hand blenders. Joe doesn't even know about the knife set yet.
