Holiday Gift Guide: Save Money this Holiday Season with Bundle Monster!

Photobucket

  I learned a long time ago that if you don't spend literally hundreds of dollars for a knife set, you are just purchasing a display piece for your kitchen.  I only ever purchased one cheaper knife set, which of course wouldn't cut hot butter if you paid it too, but I received about five additional ones as wedding gifts years ago.  I ended up throwing every set away (Shhh don't tell) because not one single knife cut well.  I went and bought myself two high end sets to the tune of about $600 (companies you would readily recognize, but I won't mention because this post isn't about them), and I am still using these two sets to this day.  So the moral of the story is that you have to spend a lot for knives right?  Wrong!

Bundle Monster is an online site that began with a laptop and some concepts back in 2009 and has developed into a company that offers unbeatable deals and a quick delivery turnaround!  I was blessed to receive a 9 Piece Ceramic Cutlery Set for review purposes, and I will be the first to admit I was extremely skeptical.  Why?  These knives retail for $59.99 and are currently on sale for $39.99, so I expected them to work like all the other inexpensive knives I have experienced.

That crunching noise you are hearing is me eating crow because I was dead wrong!  I couldn't have been more wrong if I had tried.  These ceramic knives are the sharpest knives I have ever owned, and based off of this product, I feel good recommending Bundle Monster to others.  I decided to try these knives out on raw potatoes because they are so hard to cut if you don't have a great knife.

The pictures speak for themselves!  These knives sliced right through the first and the last potato I cut.  Since then, I have cut potatoes a few more times, and two nights ago, I used the same knife which is just as sharp as the first time I used it to cut rib eye steaks into thin slices for beef and broccoli.

You really should check Bundle Monster out!  You will be amazed at their prices, and I have been really impressed with these knives!  Don't forget to follow them on Facebook and Twitter so you don't miss any of their promotions during the Holiday Season!

  1. Ceramic knives are the BEST!! I used to have a ceramic peeler and it made all my work so much easier and faster! Unfortunately an apple broke the handle and it had to go to the trash. I would so love to get a whole set of ceramic knives!!

    3. you know, I hardly ever peel potatoes! I wash them and use them as is. Even if making mashed potatoes, I just smash them skins in. However, I see how it would make it so much faster!

    1. Ahh yes, even good sets get dull by then. My husband owns a wet stone, so I have him sharpen mine every few months. Nothing is more dangerous than a dull knife!

    1. Hey, I swear these are sharp and the price is so beyond right! I honestly thought long and hard before I agreed to do a knife review. I mean, knowing that all knives are not created equal, I was leery about agreeing to it, then finding out the product wasn't right. Thankfully, they really do work!

    1. My husband who used to be a chef told me that Ceramic knives are always sharpest! He was actually shocked I didn't know this. Anyways, I think these are a great value for something that works well! My only fear is that I will slice myself :D

    1. I tell you, knives are under rated! Everyone should have at least two good ones. One big, and one paring knife.

    1. None of mine did! I was hesitant to even mention that because it seems so ungrateful which I was not. However, it just proves how hard it is to find quality knives, especially at affordable prices!

    1. They actually work really well. The fries you see cut in the picture were actually cut with these knives. The knife slices easily through potatoes, and I have used them for multiple things since and they cut just as well! You can win a set to try for yourself under giveaways

  22. WHO would have thought, indeed ceramic??? I knew they had begun to use space age ceramics in cars and such, knives were a puzzlement to me.. HOW can it get sharp????? I would love love to try them. Knives are the ONE thing that my kitchen lacks! I have everything high-quality in pans, etc, but never have bought a good knife set to date.

  28. I have wanted ceramic knives for the longest time. I think the only thing that has really stopped me is that I've heard they are really, really sharp and I'm afraid I might cut myself. I know it seems strange, but I'm a little clumsy. :)

    1. Actually, Marti, I am not surprised at all. Once I realized how sharp they are, I keep them put away where the kids won't accidentally get them. I don't mind the older two helping a bit, but NOT with these knives! I am always afraid I am going to slice and dice myself, but my husband just whizzes into cutting like it's no biggie

      Delete
  29. It's actually easier to cut yourself with a dull knife, because you have to press harder to get it to cut, and end up slicing yourself instead. I can speak to this from personal experience. Thanks for the review- I hadn't heard if this brand.

    1. I think the cuts are always worse too because they are "hacked" rather than a clean slice like a sharp knife does. I still hide the sharp knives from the kids though lol

  31. I have never used ceramic knives - just Henckels and Wusthof. There is nothing better in the kitchen than a really good set of really sharp knives. Thank you for the review - I love hearing about your experience with ceramic knives.

    1. I have Henckels, Wustof, and believe it or not Cutco. Cutco are serrated, so I love them for a different reason, but before these ceramic knives, I always go to my Henckels for slicing or cutting. I agree, knives are super important in the kitchen!
