Some really good stuff in this package: I hated to click the Meh button, wish there was a “Wow” button. The knives look stupid though, and I already have most of the things included. Love the divided glass storage containers…
Can the people knocking this deal elaborate a little more on why I should NOT buy these? The knives have pretty good reviews but very few. The bakeware looks standard. What specifically is wrong with these things?
The knives look like crap. Knives with the cutouts like that are poorly balanced and the cutouts tend to make slicing things more difficult. Also, for most kitchen duties a sharp straight edge is much better than a serrated one.
The divided storage pieces are a pain in the ass for storage when not being used, because they don’t stack at all.
I do like the silicon grip and lift thing, and that would get used often by me.
The rest is either cheap filler (refrigerator mats), stuff that will likely not get used much (steamer pans), or stuff that’s easy and cheap to get elsewhere (the bakeware).
All of that said, for the price, if you need a couple of these things, go for it. Also, this is just my opinion and some people might like some of the things I don’t like.
@phaedrusnyc I have the bakeware and use it all the time. It is very heavy duty and really easy to clean. I’m considering getting this deal for some of the other products and using the bakeware set as a future gift.
@phaedrusnyc@yoda133113 I bought some of these items on previous deals. I didn’t buy the knife set for reasons similar to what @yoda133113 says (Yoda always has great wisdom.) Seems like a $20 knife set with a “gimmick” of the open blades.
The glass compartment containers are nice quality. It’s true that they can’t stack due to the divider system. But they are well-made.
The fridge mats are just basically what you expect them to be – you can buy rolls of the material, usually for less, which you can cut to size. However these offer the advantage of coming in fun colors. They actually did fit my fridge drawers (just had to trim length a bit, but width was perfect). So overall I guess I’m happy with them.
Ordered the bakeware set also but that one hasn’t arrived yet.
Honestly if I hadn’t already bought the major items, except the knives, I would have jumped in on this deal for a bit more than I paid for 1/2 the items.
