I’m delighted to announce that I’m going to be doing some work with CUTCO.
Recently while working with Canadian Beef I was given a set of CUTCO steak knives. I love knives and I’m quite particular about them. In fact, part of my “how Gerry and I met” story includes knives, but that’s another story for another time.
I hadn’t really heard much about CUTCO before. I assumed from the name that they made knives, and they do. CUTCO makes kitchen knives, cookware, utensils, flatware, hunting knives and garden tools. To my knowledge I had never used one of their knives. But when a set of steak knives show up at your door, looking like the knives you get at a high-end steak house, you know what to do! You crank up the barbecue, throw a couple of West Side Beef Co steaks on, and open the wine. And that’s exactly what we did.
We were both really impressed with the quality and hand-feel of the CUTCO steak knives and after many, many uses, how well they kept an edge. Gerry says “… they really elevate the experience of eating a steak.”
Those knives started a conversation with CUTCO, which has evolved into an upcoming giveaway (more on that soon); an upcoming series about testing their kitchen knives and cookware; and an exciting event which I worked with their team to create – a custom-designed knife skills evening hosted by yours truly (more on how to attend that).
I’ve heard about the student entrepreneurship program that CUTCO has used since 1985 to get their knives into people’s hands and their new Cooking With CUTCO program. I’ve talked to home cooks, CUTCO consultants and Chefs who use their knives. I’ve spoken to friends who love their knives and swear by their kitchen shears.
Do you have a beloved CUTCO knife? Do you have a CUTCO story? I’d love to hear about them.
