Knife Block Sets
Whether you’re a big fan of cooking or not, kitchen knives are one of the items in your cupboards that get used the most. And having great ones can make chopping, peeling and cooking, in general, much easier. Our kitchen knives are in daily use, paring, peeling, chopping and dicing, and what would we do without a serrated bread knife to cut a slice from a fresh, crusty loaf? Or the perfect vegetable knife to prep for the heartiest of meals?
Because we use them so often, it makes sense to keep them to hand, so a smart knife block on the worktop is the obvious option. It's also safer than rummaging in a drawer where exposed blades can pose a threat to fingers. Even more convenient is a magnetic or wall-mounted knife rack, just like those seen in professional catering kitchens! Here, you’ll find a wide range of our best knife blocks and kitchen knife sets for all types of kitchen décor and cooking styles from a great range of brands. Don’t forget the rest of your kitchen essentials, also available at Lakeland online.
Why use a knife block?
As well as for safety and reducing the chance of coming across an exposed blade in a drawer, knife block sets will help keep blades in tip-top condition too. Some knife blocks even have a built-in sharpener – as buying a set of knives is a real investment, you may find that a knife block with an integrated sharpener is the easiest way to ensure ongoing sharpness.
Choosing to store your knife set with a block also just looks great and can be the perfect final touch to your kitchen’s work surfaces.
Types of knife block sets
We know kitchen knife sets are best stored in a block but how do you choose between all the different options? It really depends on the kitchen knives you use and the style of your kitchen too.
In the Lakeland range, you’ll find both classic wooden knife sets as well as modern magnetic sets. Magnetic blocks help you to keep your knives exposed rather than hidden for super quick access while also avoiding any sort of dust build-up when not in use. From brands like Joseph Joseph, you’ll find contemporary knife blocks like carousel or slimline blocks, that are perfect for more compact spaces. We also have plenty of Tramontina wooden blocks for a classic and luxurious look.
If you’re just starting out with your kitchen knife collection, you’ll need to stock up on the basics. From steak knives to the perfect vegetable knife, the range is packed with knife sets to get you through every meal and cooking session like a professional chef. Find a selection of styles, colours and designs each with the highest quality and sharpest blades for the very best results with minimum chopping effort.
We choose knife sets and blocks for different reasons. Some knife sets are supplied in a block, but if you already own a mismatched collection of knives, perhaps an empty, universal block that takes any size would be better. Looks count too, and knife blocks are available in many styles from wooden and stainless steel to a stylish black finish. Our latest Lakeland range has it all. And whilst you’re here, head over to our chopping board collection to find the perfect board to use your knives on safely.
