Who wants some stuff? General ramblings and a giveaway - scroll to the bottom to see what it is...


Wusthof knives are good and good people need good knives so you can imagine that I would want my good readers to get in on this cherry of a deal. Thats right one lucky reader will be the proud owner of The Grand Prix II Two-Piece Herb Set in Green - this set has a $60 dollar value and is available only at Bloomingdales. What does all this mean? It means that someone who lives in the United States will not have to go to Bloomingdales to get one because they will be getting one right here. One entry per person, no extra entries. You should be following my blog and following me on twitter already and now you can "like" me too- if you arent then get on it. You need to check out the links and then leave a comment there and then one over here on the blog post and you are entered. One winner will be selected on Monday August 22 with the use of Random.org and Wusthof will mail you your prize so that means contact information will be required.

Combining two essential tools to easily cut, chop and mince parsley, sage, dill, cilantro, thyme, chives and other fresh herbs, the new Grand Prix II Two-Piece Herb Set includes Wusthof's top-selling Come Apart Kitchen Shears in vivid Green (model 5558-G) and the perfectly sized, precision-forged, full-tang Grand Prix II 4.5-inch Multi-Prep Cook's Knife (model 4585/12), which sports an apropos Green colored handle.
An essential tool for the kitchen, and ideal for snipping both delicate and hardy fresh herbs, such as tarragon and rosemary, Wusthof's Come Apart Kitchen Shears offer razor sharp blades that easily "come apart" for thorough and easy cleaning, as well as re-sharpening.  The Come Apart Kitchen Shears is universally designed for both right- and left-handed cooks.

A cross between the cook's knife and a paring knife, the Grand Prix II 4.5-inch Multi-Prep Cook's Knife features the rounded straight edge blade of a typical cook's knife, which allows for rapid fire chopping with a pro-style rocking motion on a cutting board. Unlike cook's knives, which tend to have long blades, typically 8-inches or more, the diminutive Grand Prix II 4.5-inch Multi-Prep Cook's Knife delivers precise control - the hallmark of smaller paring knives. The Grand Prix II 4.5-inch Multi-Prep Cook's Knife features the collection's signature slip-resistant, pebble-textured handle with a contoured shape that ensures a comfortable and sure grip. The handle's new vibrant Green color adds zest to daily food prep and entertaining.

If you scrolled all the way down to see what the deal was - you missed it - now go back and read the post!

I've always wanted a 'real' set of knives, just never had the extra $ to splurge on them. To me, good knives in a kitchen are like a man having good tools in his garage...a must have!

Christa Williams said...

Good knives are like good men...When they get too dull and worn out, you have to trade them in for newer, and sharper ones. I would to have these knives!

Merry Graham said...

I love my Wusthof knives. The day that I saw my dad headed out to the back deck with my paring knife in his hand so he could use it to clean between the boards was the day I almost tackled the man. Winning this would be especially nice because I have no idea where the closest Bloomingdales is to me.

nice giveaway - what are those little teeth that form a circle in the handle of the scissors to be used for? I already am following you on twitter and your blog.

East Village Eats said...

My set of Global knives are getting duller than my book club, where should I go to get them sharpened Christo? Broadway Panhandler?

Vickie said...

That is the cutest green color! I'm in.

Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family said...

I love the green and the fact this could be my first real adult cutlery (I have gone cheap for the items I own now).
I like you on Facebook and left a comment on Wustof's facebook site (with a link back to your giveaway). Hope that I am the lucky one to get these :)

Lulu Carmichael said...

My herb garden is growing like crazy and these tools would be awesome! I have a few Wusthofs in my drawer but they need company!

Mexico in my kitchen said...

So nice of you to share these tools with the rest of us.

I have my eyes set on one of those knives for long.

Good luck to everyone.

Take care,

I would really love to have a knife like this one and the kitchen shears are lots better than the ones I have now. Unfortunately I don't twitter, but do have facebook.

I recently realised after decades of cooking assiduously that my knives are always dull and my pans always in poor shape; this will help me remedy the situation and is a great gesture from you to your readers.
