28 kitchen utensils and gadgets that people swear by

Each knife is made with matrix powder steel and a fused design, which means the handle and blade are one solid piece. The first time you cook with these, you’ll know the splurge-worthy knives truly stand above the rest. I own two Hast knives and I have to say they have made me a real knife snob. I had no idea how hard I worked preparing vegetables/meat/bread before. Now that I have light and sharp knives, I can really feel the difference. My wrist doesn’t get tired and the prep work is done much faster. Whether you want the whole collection or, like me, start with a few and expand on them, I highly recommend getting Hast Knives into your home.

Promising results: “This knife is so amazing to use. It’s comfortable to hold in my hand and it’s so incredibly sharp that it will slip through anything. Whether I’m cutting onions, tomatoes, carrots or other vegetables, it slices them all with ease. It doesn’t look dull with use, like most knives do. It is also very easy to clean, just rinse it after each use and you’re done! —Michelle W.

*Set includes chef’s knife, bread knife, utility knife, boning knife, paring knife, custom ceramic sharpening rod and cylindrical glass knife block.
