I bought this cleaver at Kitchen Pro a few weeks ago because...
Using the right knife also helps prolong it's life, a hefty knife also does most of the work for you
I discovered that our cook had been using our Zwilling chef's knife to cut through bone.
We've had this knife since Dada and I got married in 2007 and while it's still sharp in fairness, the idea of seeing it mutilated like this, well, nakakainis.
The upside lang, as I shared my woes to the sales staff at Kitchen Pro, was that they could re-shape and re-sharpen my knife for Php50 only. Now, that's customer service.
So I bundled up our old knife and brought it to Kitchen Pro to have it serviced. They told me lang that they were going to trim off the "bungi" part so the knife blade would become shorter, which was fine by me.
A few weeks later, I got it back. Kitchen Pro brought new life to my knife!
I know it pays to invest in good kitchen equipment, but it was truer that day more than ever. Not only did my Zwilling knives stay sharp for close to a decade and still going strong, I loved that the local distributor was able to help me take care of it pa, despite the use and abuse it has gone through.
So mothers, if you are looking for kitchen knives that can withstand the usual wear and tear, this has my stamp of approval. Get everything. Sulit yan. Zwilling knives are all forged from a single piece of high carbon stainless steel, which is ice hardened to improve stain resistance. Forging is intended to produce improved cutting-edge retention, weight, balance, and reduced opportunity for metal fatigue. The result is a knife that really cuts like a knife, for decades.
Next on my wishlist, this Mezzaluna. I can already imagine the smell of freshly minced herbs filling our kitchen! Even just the idea of shortening prep time for cooking, ang saya.
Zwilling does more than just knives, obviously. They have all these kitchen tools like pizza cutters, peelers, basting brushes and wire whisks.
They even have beauty and grooming tools and personal care accessories. In fact, here's one fun fact. Did you know that Zwilling owns Tweezerman? I only ever use Tweezerman for my brows, so I know the quality is superb.
I bought these thinning scissors and hair cutting shears actually, because Dada cuts our boys' hair and trims Berry's bangs himself. I figured, with all the money we've saved from hair cuts, this was an investment worth spending on. Scissors for life!
