A good set of knives is one of the best investments a home chef can make, but quality cutlery can run you a pretty penny. That's why we're always on the hunt for a sharp deal on dependable metal. Of the many knife set sales we've covered, the Cuisinart 15-piece knife block set, which is currently down to $75 at Best Buy, scores some of the highest marks in verified purchase reviews. Right now, and for today only, the forged knife set is half off and includes a wooden block that spins lazy Susan-style to reveal a recipe book or iPad holder on the backside. Brilliant, right?

In addition to the nifty storage block, the Cuisinart set includes an 8-inch chef's knife, 8-inch bread knife, 8-inch slicing knife, 7-inch santoku knife, 7-inch utility knife, 3.5-inch paring knife, six 4.5-inch steak knives, scissors and sharpening steel. That's more than enough blade to get through any of one of our quarantine cookbook picks. Best Buy will also ship the set for free by Monday if your place your order today. By comparison, Target has the same set for $120 and it's $100 or more at other major retailers.

One other daily deal from the kitchen department is a $10 funky retro hot dog toaster which cooks up two dogs and buns to your preferred doneness in just a few minutes.
