The Wüsthof Gourmet 2 Piece Cook s Set contains two of the most fundamental and multi-purpose kitchen knives, the 4 Utility Knife and the 8 Cook s knife.
The Wüsthof Gourmet 4" Utility Knife offers more length than a paring knife, but is more narrow than a chef s knife. With its pointed tip and compact size, this knife is useful for small and detailed tasks, while still long enough to manage larger work. It can also be used with herbs and small cuts of meat, and is ideal for peeling, paring, slicing, mincing and cleaning vegetables and fruit.
As a vital tool for any chef, the Wüsthof Gourmet 8 Cook s Knife ranks among the most popular of blades in both size and style. This blade makes slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping virtually any food effortless, this essential kitchen companion, is ideal for meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs. The front portion of the blade manages detailed jobs deftly, while the rest of the long blade is adept for your larger chopping and cutting chores.
Each knife of the Gourmet line is precision-stamped from a single piece of Chrome-Molybdenum-Vanadium steel. Wüsthof employs state-of-the-art laser technology to cut each blade, which then undergo advanced grinding and polishing procedures that provide the blade with a flawless taper from tip to bolster. With each cutting angle verified by laser-testing, the razor-sharp edges offer easy maintenance. A full tang delivers remarkable balance as you slice, dice, mince and chop. Although Wüsthof Gourmet knives are dishwasher safe, hand-washing will result in better edge retention.
Triple-riveted for strength and secure construction, each contoured and comfortable handle is crafted from a durable, synthetic polymer, and proudly features the distinctive Trident logo.
The cutlery of the Wüsthof Gourmet 2 Piece Cook s Set each carry a lifetime guarantee.
