These two knives were purchased for gifts. I have one that I use quite often as a boning knife, and as a vegetable knife. I have not seen these knives on the market recently, and I thought I would take advantage of the opportunity now.
A few years ago Ameruca's Test Kitchen rated Four Star knives the best valie of the year.

The new Kitchen Aid mixers do not come with a 3qt bowl which I consider essential for recipies that call for beaten egg whites or whipped cream. I have two for my own use.
I bought this one for my daughter who has recently aquired a Kitchen Aid mixer.

Henkel's four star cutlary was rated the very best by Cooks Illustrated a few years ago. I bought a set for my daughter, and now I am buying a set for my grandson who will marry soon. I have the knife in my collection, but not the fork.

I bought this wisk for a young lady who is just starting to learn to bake. I think it is important to have quality tools to work with because they make the job easier, and they help make the results more reliable. This wisk will last her a life time.

The cruets were a disappointment in that they did not have covers on the spouts thus allowing the vinegar to evaporate, and the olive oil to turn rancid. I will be returning them.
