If you’re someone whose love of cooking maybe outweighs the size of your wallet, trying to load up your kitchen with high-grade crookery and appliances can be a bit difficult. However, if you’re patient and willing to do your homework, you can find some great deals on essential kitchen gear.

When it comes to knives, most of us happy to stick with whatever is included in a cheap cutlery set. Which is fine for some, but if you’re someone who seriously loves cooking you know how important it is to have a high-grade knife, or two, or ten.

While some fancy knife brands can set you back a couple hundred dollars for a single blade, there are a few, like Global, that offer high quality cuts at a more reasonable price. Those prices become even more reasonable when they’ve been slashed.

Global Knife (20cm) and Sharpener Starter Set ($119.95, save $159.05)

If you’ve never owned a fancy knife before, this is a good place to start. You’ll get a 20cm chef’s knife, which is a great all-purpose blade, along with a two-stage ceramic water sharpener to maintain it.

You can grab this Global starter set for $119.95 and save yourself almost $160 here.

If you’ve been looking to grab yourself some high-grade cooking knives, but trying to piece together individual essentials has been a bit tricky or straining on your budget, this might be the deal you’ve been looking for.

This Global knife block set is currently on sale for $339, which is an enormous discount of $616 from its usual $955 price tag. It includes six types of Global knives, all of which are great kitchen essentials.

This set includes:

  • Paring knife (8cm)
  • Utility knife (11cm)

The long blade of this knife is flexible, giving you an extra degree of dexterity when cutting and filleting your meats. Removing those hair-thin bones from a salmon fillet couldn’t be easier.

Global Minosharp Plus 3 Ceramic Knife Sharpener ($55, save $60)

Image: Global

Ideally, you should be using a whetstone to keep your knives sharp, but a good pull through sharpener is a much more convenient option.

This Global Minosharp Plus 3 knife sharpener uses three ceramic wheels – coarse, medium and fine – to help bring a sharp edge back to your dull blades. It also cycles water through the wheels, to keep your knife’s temperature cool while also helping to wash the metal shavings from it.

The Global knife sharpener has had $60 shaved off its price tag, and is currently on sale for $55.

If you don’t own a knife block, a magnetic wall rack is a great alternative. If counter-space is at a premium, a magnetic rack helps eliminate the chunky knife block from the occasion, while offering an incredibly easy access.

Compared to throwing your knifes into a drawer or an improperly sized knife block, a wall rack is also a better way to care for your knife’s edge.

Just make sure it’s properly secured.

You can grab this magnetic knife rack for $149.16, down from the RRP of $279.
