The Wüsthof Gourmet 3 Piece Starter set is a compact and convenient collection of knives that cover the basis, providing plenty of multi-purpose use from just a few knives. This set of three essential knives includes a 4.5” Utility Knife (4045), and an 8” Bread Knife (4143), and an 8” Cook’s Knife (4562/20).
The Wüsthof Gourmet 4.5” Utility knife offers a blade longer than a paring knife, but is more narrow than a chef’s knife. This versatile little blade provides control for detailed tasks but can also handle some larger chores. Excels with paring, peeling, slicing, mincing, cleaning and cutting vegetables, and is ideal for herbs and small cuts as well.
With its sharp, serrated edge, the Wüsthof Gourmet 8” Bread Knife best handles thick crusts and tough rinds without crushing soft, delicate foods within. Lengthy enough for large loaves and big sandwiches, this blade performs well with all kinds of bread, crusty, crunchy, fresh and soft. This blade is also great for cakes, fruit, and fried foods, with a triangular tip that can assist with other varying tasks.
The Wüsthof Gourmet 8” Cook’s Knife is among the most popular of blades in both style and size, a vital for any chef. This indispensable kitchen companion, is ideal for meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, effortlessly slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping virtually any food. The front portion of the blade readily manages detailed chores, while the rest of the long blade is perfect for larger chopping and cutting tasks.
Wüsthof precision-cuts the cutlery of their Gourmet line from a single piece of Chrome-Molybdenum-Vanadium steel, and employs state-of-the-art laser technology to form Gourmet blades. The blades then undergo an advanced grinding and polishing procedure to deliver a flawless taper from tip to bolster. With cutting angles verified by laser-testing, their razor-sharp edges offer easy maintenance. A full tang in the longer blades delivers notable balance for your slicing and chopping. Wüsthof Gourmet knives are dishwasher safe, but hand-washing results in longer edge retention.
Crafted from a durable, synthetic polymer, each contoured and comfortable handle is triple-riveted for strength and secure construction, and features the celebrated Trident logo with pride.
The cutlery of the Wüsthof Gourmet 3 Piece Starter Set each carry a lifetime guarantee.
