Sure, it’s fun to have cooking contraptions of all kinds (can anyone ever own too many novelty waffle makers?), but ultimately, it always comes down to having quality essentials. And that starts with owning top-notch knives. Truly the foundation of any kitchen, a good knife will be with you for the long haul. While that typically means an investment, luckily, Zwilling’s Memorial Day Sale is offering a fantastic selection with deeply slashed prices (up to 75 percent off!). The major markdowns are due to the fact that the knives have minor visual imperfections, but that won’t affect their performance at all. Below, we rounded up our favorite knives, but be sure to check out their entire sale that includes deals on Staub’s iconic cocotte!
