Cuisinart Knives

Anyone had a bad experience with these? My knives are crap and these are on special for a really good price. My pans are Cuisenart and I love them. They list at $200 but are on sale for $40. Just wondering if I might be being taken or if they are decent knives for the average home cook.

Never had them, never used them, never knew anybody who had them or used them, so you can disrigard my opinion. But why would you buy a knife from a pot maker?

Charlie, would you buy pots and pans from an electrical appliance maker? You shouldn't assume a product is not good because the manufacturer makes other products as well.

Charlie, I do disregard your opinion. I was questioning why you made it.

The tone of your statement above suggests you don't think it's very good idea.

The company I was referring to is Cuisinart. They make cookware, cutlery and electrical appliances for the kitchen - blenders, grills, food processors, etc.

Viking makes stoves and cookware.

Calphalon makes cookware, cutlery and cooking utensils.

Braun makes electric shavers and kitchen appliances.

Multiple product lines is more common than not.

Ok, fine if you want to be thAt serious, yeah, I do not like cusinart knives, or calphalon for that matter. But hey, like I said, you can disregard my opinion.
Now by the same token, knifes are only as good as the care you take of them.

There are a number of websites that review knives. I suggest you google something such as "review of kitchen knives" and read through the results.

Yes. I bought my mother one and it wasn't sharp out of the package and dulled right away.

I wouldn't recommend them.
