THE EGG™ Knife set – the ultimate gift for those who love to cook.

THE EGG™ Knife set – the ultimate gift for those who love to cook.
Please note, this is a paid post in partnership with House.

When House contacted us to ask if we could try their latest kitchen innovation -THE EGG™ – I was thrilled, as I knew it would make a stunning gift for a certain person who has a birthday in November. If you follow our food posts, and the Daddy_cooks_food Instagram channel, then you will know that great food is a huge part of our lives. You will also know that it is a particular passion for my husband, Matt, who takes his cooking skills far beyond a hobby, even while juggling a full-time teaching job.

When you are serious about cooking, I am told, really good knives are an absolute must. THE EGG™ includes some of the best knives available, hand-crafted from the finest quality Japanese steel. THE EGG™ itself also features a slick and contemporary design. It is a beautiful statement piece that can turn cooking into an art – both the food and your kitchen!

Not only do we have the opportunity to review THE EGG™, we are also pleased to announce that we have a stunning Cuisinepro Damashiro Emperor 3 Piece Santoku Knife Set, Value £199.99, to give away for one lucky reader. Check out the Rafflecopter below in order to enter.

The Egg knife set


THE EGG™ includes six essential Cuisinepro iD3 knives fitted with Microdot technology for enhanced grip. They are Rockwell 53 tested and ice hardened for superior endurance, and sharpened to a precise 15-degree single bevel for unrivalled cutting ability. Each set inclides:

  • THE EGG by Cuisinepro
  • iD3 Knife Block
  • Paring Knife
  • Utility Knife
  • Santoku Knife 12cm
  • Santoku Knife 15cm
  • Chef Knife
  • Bread Knife
  • Velvet Storage Bag


Knifeinfo sheet Cuisinepro

These are knives strong, precise and beautiful. They should last you a lifetime. Cuisinepro agree to just that – the knives come with a lifetime guarantee.

THE EGG™ itself includes a push-button handle at the top, to avoid leaving finger marks on the steel when the lid is lifted off, creating a show-stopping reveal each time the knives are used. Steven Lew, Executive Chairman of HOUSE, says

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Cuisinepro to launch THE EGG™ in the UK. HOUSE stores have been able to secure all available stocks for a pre-Christmas launch.”

THE EGG™ is a beautiful object. It is so perfectly shiny that it was hard to take photos without me in the reflection! It also comes packed in a luxe black velvet storage bag, and is a perfect gift for Christmas, weddings and engagements. I let Matt try out his early birthday present for the purposes of this review and he was very impressed and delighted to recieve such a beautiful and useful gift.

    My cirtrus juicer. I love starting each day with freshly squeezed orange juice. I have found that it is better to have an appliance that does one thing really well, rather than a so-so job of lots of things, like the machine I used to use, which was quite messy and not very efficient Plus my new juicer is easy to disassemble and put in the dishwasher, so I never worry about whether I should use it or not.
