I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Calphalon. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation

Two weeks ago I came to the scary relization that I had been using toy knives to cook for the last 25 years.

Ok, let me back up.  So two weeks ago I was sent the Calphalon Self-Sharpening Cutlery Set.  I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve ever had a grown up, professional set of knives and I finally connected how much time I had been wasting in my kitchen with my old set.

Seriously, I went from spending 20 minutes cutting vegetables, fruit and meats to 10 minutes flat. Cutting through chicken was like cutting through butter.

Want to see what I’m talking about? Watch this video showing how to cut an onion with these amazing knives

Did you see how simple it was for him to chop through an onion. It wasn’t just skill, it was raser sharp knives that made the work as easy as pie. By the way, you can check out more Knife Skills Videos here.

Another feature I love about this set is that they are self-sharpening! Seriously, built into the stainless steel block are cermaic sharpeners  so that the simple act of  removing the knives from the holder, sharpens the knives. Yes! No more special trips to see a knife-sharper, which, come on, who has time for?

The knives are made with high-carbon, no stain forged stainless steel and,  let’s just say it, are plain sexy.

So, I knew I had to create a fun recipe with these knives so I whipped up some Gluten-free Pineapple Fried Rice.  I did a lot of chopping, dicing and cutting but it was fast, fun and easy.

  1. I’ve never had my knives sharpened, yikes! I try to keep up with the maintenance at home but it’s SO easy to forget to do it. :-\

  2. Thanks for a fantastic giveaway! I’ve never had my knives professionally sharpened! And the little handheld sharpener in my kitchen drawer doesn’t often get used because the knives don’t hold their edge and need to be sharpened every. single. time. Blech!

  3. Thank you for a great giveaway! I have never had my knives professionally sharpened. I sharpen my knives sometimes at home but I am sure they aren’t as sharp as they could be!

  4. I have one really good knife that I have had for years and the rest are cheap. I would love a
    professional set to make my prep so much easier!!

  5. Howdy y’all! My hubby sharpens my knives as often as I need them done! The last time was about a month or so ago… I also keep knife sharpening tools around for quick little touch ups just before a difficult cutting job. 🙂

  6. I have never had my knives professionally sharpened because they are the cheap-o kind. I do have a sharpener that I try to use, but am not consistent with it! Great recipe and giveaway! 🙂

  7. I have self-sharpening knives, but I don’t think the sharpener does a good job. So, I regularly (but not often enough!) sharpen with a device. It’s time-consuming to find in the drawer, then adjust the dial back to the first position (because I left it in the second position the last time I used it), sharpen the knife, then put it in the next position and sharpen again. There’s nothing like a sharp knife – I just wish I didn’t have to go through such a hassle.

  8. I misplaced my stone, so it’s been at least 7 months. I still can’t find it :/ Thanks for the chance!

  9. This will sound crazy. I actually have a really expensive set of knives (Wusthof) but I always find myself using a cheap self-sharpening knife instead, because I’m just not skilled at keeping the Wusthof knives sharp on a regular basis. Now, to have a quality set of self-sharpening knives – seriously would be a dream come true.

  10. I’ve never had them sharpened, bought a knife sharpener one time, put it in a drawer and have never found it again. DUH

  11. We sharpen out knives often but they are so old they have chips in them so not much use. We are in desperate need of knives. Thanks so much 🙂

  12. My knives are ancient, dull and never sharpened. I have good knives at the top of my Christmas wish list. Thanks for the intro to these.
