Sharp Deal On KitchenAid Knife Set!

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 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 I just looked at the immersion hand blender in my Farmgirl Fare Favorites 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.


  1. i just ordered the knives with the black handles. i've been needing them for a while. thanks!

  2. why oh why don't they ship to oz!

  3. I'm drooling, and I already own a good set of knives (thanks to a wedding present from a wonderful relative).

  4. Thanks so much for mentioning the Kitchen Aid knife set. My two boys were still looking for something to get their Mom for Mothers Day. Her old Chicago Cutlery are beginning to show there age.

  5. Sadly, no more deal on the immersion blender. I was *this* close. Maybe one day...although I doubt I'll be making any homemade dog food. What do you make for the pooches?

  6. I love your blog, Farmgirl.
    Delurking to let you know I ordered the red! I've been looking for years for this kind of set (Kitchen Aid is a favorite), with that kind of price--and in my signature color!
    Thanks so much!

  7. This knife set - Useful in the kitchen.

  9. So, how good of quality are the knives? I use Henckels mainly - are these comparable? $49 is a good price even knowing I'll never use the 'steak' knives...
