I have seen the Ronco Show time Knife set on TV several times and was curious as too how good they were, as I'm under the impression that a lot of infomercials are scam products.
I got this set back three years ago as a Christmas gift from my mother in law. For starters the size of the set is huge, there are 25 pieces, You get everything from carving knife to steak knives, boning knife, bread knife, cheese knife and so many more. Some of these knives I have never used or even knew that was such a knife, the handles on these knives were very comfortable to hold, and the blades were very very sharp, I have been using this set now for 3 years and I have never had to sharpen any of the knives. Mind you there are still some knives in this set that to this day I haven't used, but may do so someday when the need arises. I have never had a problem when slicing something that the food sticks to the knife when making my next slice.
This are suppose the be the one and only knife set you will need in your life time.
I have always done my dishes by hand. Not long ago my husband bought a dishwasher and this is were my only complaint comes in, since I have been washing these knives in the dishwasher I have noticed some of the handles get lose on the knives. They have a lifetime warranty on them so I will be contacting the company to see what they will do about this problem.
I think this set is wonderful all but the issue of the handles in the dishwasher and would buy it again for myself or as a gift for someone else.
