I don't have any resin knifes, how do these compared to the ceramic?

@theoneill555: Oh, you will be hunting me down and smacking me for this. I posted this because I want the cutting board, and quality cutting boards cost more than $19, all by themselves.

These knives are stainless steel, and then resin coated (which you probably already knew from reading the description). They're Farberware. Not fabulous, but decent. True knife aficionados (which I am not) wouldn't look twice at them. I think they're very pretty.

I'm trying to decide whether I want one or two. I use the cutting boards when I can (I set jars on them while they're being filled), and these are practically perfect for me.

@shrdlu: I was also thinking about getting it for the cutting board, myself, the knives would be a little bonus.

These I would leave in the front of the knife drawer for the boys to grab. I lose knives like crazy at my house and if I didn't know where the boys were 24 hours a day, I would be worried.

Only $4.95 shipping (it gave me a $2 discount) - :)

Plus, you can never have too many cutting boards! I like to have a variety of sizes and surfaces.

@faughtey: Heya! I have multiple wood cutting boards, but I've been using some cork backed place mats for my canning, and these will be nicer. I won't think about it too long, though (the number to get), since I've seen this site sell out of something once or twice.

No deal for me - glass cutting boards are dangerous. They can chip, leaving slivers of glass in your food. At the very least, they will dull your blades faster that other surfaces.

@sgruff: It's tempered glass, and those are resin coated knives. I've never heard of a tempered glass cutting board leaving slivers of glass in anything. Sure, they can break. I have also broken wooden cutting boards. Nothing's forever.

When tempered glass breaks, it breaks into thousands of pieces... The knives look almost like the Kuhn Rikon knives I buy. Those knives are the best I've had.

I'd definitely haunt the person who stabbed me with a pink knife.

To second sgruff, glass/marble cutting boards are hell on your knives. I wouldn't worry about slivers, but you will likely cost yourself more effort and money in the long run with glass, especially if you have nice knives that you care about.

There is no point to these knives. There is a reason you never see colored blade; they make no sense at all.

Just save your money, and get one good kitchen knife.

Alton Brown says glass cutting boards are evil. Good enough for me.

Well Just make sure you do not set Tempered glass cutting boards on a cooktop of any kind THEY EXPLODE WHEN THEY GET HOT!!

No I didnt do it my son desided to try and dry something off by putting it on the cutting board then sticking it on a burner.I have never seen anything like it Shattered GLASS EVERYWHERE he was very lucky to be in the only place where pieces of the cutting board didn't land. The hot Glass melted my carpet all over the kitchen.Also made a sound like a gun shot that rocked my little house. Who knew a glass cutting board would do that??

That said I still have these as conter savers my kids were constantly putting hot pots on the countertops this just saves them from burn marks. I use the plastic cutting boards that are germ free you get a better grip on food that you are cutting-on Glass food slides around.-Love the knives with covers so they stay sharp in drawers to me this is a good deal!!

Glass cutting boards destroy knife edges- skip this.
I have one for chicken since it is "safer" germ wise- big mistake- Alton was right. Totally dulls knives in no time.

Ask any chef out there, and they will tell you to stay away from any glass cutting boards. They dull knives and are more prone to self-destructing then any other types of cutting boards.

Climbs on the dead horse, waves his vorpal sword and says ...
Glass cutting boards are evil. EVIL!
My wife had gotten a few 'cause they were "cute" and decorative.
So, not only did I have to worry about breaking them, I then noticed I was sharpening the knives a lot more often. A LOT more often.
A little google-fu later, and TADA the boards stay decorative.
Besides which, a little bleachy water the night before, and my plastic and wooden boards are bright and shiny the next morn.

Are these brightly colored for the kiddies?

@xerobull: I wonder if Brandon Marshall's wife had this set??

This whole kit is nothing but FAIL. Bad knives with a worse cutting surface.

When I saw the deal on the main page I thought it was a kids "My First Stabbing" kit or something.

There are a plethora of composite or wood cutting boards you can get for this kind of change as close as your local Wal*Mart, Target, or Dollar General.

As an amateur chef and instructor of a basic kitchen knife skills course, glass cutting boards are killer on knives. However, check out the poster's original comment: "I use the cutting boards when I can (I set jars on them while they're being filled), and these are practically perfect for me."

I don't think glass cutting boards are hell on jars. ;)

Knives are kind of interesting but you couldn't talk me into using knives on a glass cutting board. Though I guess a glass cutting board makes a great serving tray.

@theoneill555 The resin refers to a powder coating that is applied to a metal blade, usually used to prevent veggies or fruits from sticking. Without the resin this is just a standard metal knife and still not anything like a ceramic blade. The color is purely decorative.
