This is a review of the Kuhn Rikon Colori Titanium Knife Set and a reader giveaway at the end. We tested these knives, everyday, for 2 weeks at Steamy Kitchen. Review includes PROs and CONs.
Kuhn Rikon Colori Titanium Knife Set Review
If you’re on a budget and need a new set of razor-sharp knives for everyday use, the Kuhn Rikon Color Titanium, made in Switzerland, might be the perfect match.
Kuhn Rikon was founded in 1899, and is a family-owned company with headquarters in Rikon, Switzerland. They make some of my most-used and trusted kitchen tools:
- These peelers are inexpensive, super light-weight and crazy sharp (but need to hand wash)
- We use this silicone pot lid every single day – it prevents spills and splatter, and it goes right into the dishwasher.
- Ratchet mill is the best pepper grinder that I’ve ever owned. It works fast and and there’s no twisting for my poor tennis elbow.
Kuhn Rikon Colori Titanium Knives
There are several different types of Kuhn Rikon Colori knives. We’re reviewing the Colori Titanium knives, which are Japanese stainless steel knives coated with Titanium. These knives only come in the gray/black combo (vs. the other Colori knives which come in all colors of the rainbow).
Each knife comes in a separate package, with a durable plastic sheath to protect the blade.
PRO: All of the Kuhn Rikon knives are lightweight, which means they are easy to handle, and lightening fast. These are the best knives for cutting fruit, vegetables and seafood.
CON: But because they are lightweight, I prefer my sturdier, heavier knives for meats. I find that heft makes it easier to cut through thick meats (and other thick objects like squash, watermelon)
PRO: The non-slip handles are SO comfortable!
PRO: The blade!!! The Kuhn Rikon Colori Titanium knives are razor sharp. They slice through soft tomatoes with ease.
Do you want to see how sharp and precise the blade is? I’m holding the big chef’s knife. Where’s the blade?
PRO: Even though the blade is so thin, the Japanese stainless steel and titanium coating ensures the blade is strong.
CON: But, that doesn’t mean the blade is indestructible. Do not wash in dishwasher (I recommend hand-washing ALL your kitchen knives, anyways), and don’t drop the knife on a hard, tiled floor. You wouldn’t do that, right?!
The paring knife is a perfect size.
Want to see how thin this blade is?
Why I like having a thin, sharp blade: For slicing, mincing, chopping fruits and vegetables, a thin blade means absolute precision. I found myself reaching for these knives over my expensive, fancy knives when working with fruits and vegetables. The knives stayed crazy sharp and they were just so easy to use.
PRO: The price is unbeatable.
$14 for the paring knife, $28 for chef’s knife and $18 for the utility knife.
Even if I have to replace these knives once every couple of years, it’s absolutely worth it.
