Knife is very sharp. Wish it came with a sheath though. Handle is very long. This is our 3rd purchase from Chef Remi. We will be purchasing many more products from Chef Remi.

5 hours ago - Kitchen Whisk Set
Rachel Foutch said: Perfect whisks for any kitchen!

These whisks work to do an amazing job in the kitchen. I love all of Chef Remi's products, these whisks in particular are my favorite Chef Remi tools though. I whisk often when cooking, and they both did the job perfectly, they cleaned up easily, and even better they don't trap liquid inside of them like many others do. I have often been whisking dry ingredients with other brands of whisk and found them to start suddenly dripping some water out...this is not ideal of course when doing something that requires precision and also who knows how long that liquid has been there or that it's only water! I love my Chef Remi whisk and will never use another brand for this ever again. These cleaned up so easily with the silicone that everything just wiped and washed right off!

Eva Connover said: Must have spatulas

Super satisfied with this spatula set, each one is different shape and the material is not stiff but not too soft. The handle is sturdy and very comfortable to the hand. 100% recommended and the price cant be beat!!!
