Our Gift Pick of the Day: 16-Piece Knife Block Set

For the freeloader who really needs to learn how to cook

Knife Block Gift Pick

 

Everedge by Henckels 16-Piece Knife Block Set
There’s an unspoken rule among chefs: If you do the cooking, someone else does the cleaning. This, however, can turn you into a full-time cook if your roommate (or, ahem, your significant other) is totally content washing every dish and cutting board in the kitchen each night. The best way to convince them to put down the sponge and pick up a sauté pan? A set of shiny new knives that dice a tomato and mince garlic like it’s nobody’s business. Just make sure you have a convincing and motivational speech to go along with it.
