When you go to a fancy steakhouse, they always make a big deal about presenting the knife you'll be cutting your steak with. But at home, you may use your steak knives for all sorts of meals — whether red meat's on the menu or not — which means they're likely well-worn and should probably be retired.
Now's the time to upgrade your steak knife set to something a bit sharper and sleeker — like this all-black, six-piece ceramic-coated steak knife set from Cuisinart, on sale right now for only $17 (we don't have to tell you that getting six knives for less than $20 is a super-good bargain, right?).
Of course, there's a lot of debate on whether ceramic knives are better than steel knives (read: 5 Things You Need to Know About Ceramic Knives), but with this set you get the best of both worlds. Crafted out of sturdy stainless steel, the knives are coated with ceramic to give you an ultra-sharp blade that's nonstick for easy slicing.
And although they have the word "steak" in their name, you can also use these as your go-to prep knives for slicing tomatoes and other veggies. Bonus: The ergonomic handles make extensive prep work easy on your hands.
