A chef is only as good as his knife, as the folks at Mundial know. The 80-year-old cutlery company—established in Germany by esteemed metallurgist Paul Zivi—utilizes an exclusive high-carbon, stainless-steel alloy that improves the durability and resilience of its kitchen and craft tools. Mundial’s portfolio is vast, with options ranging from the popular hollow-edged Santoku knife to the FreeStyle cutting shears. Standout innovations include its Mundi ergonomic handles, which reduce cutting fatigue, and its specially crafted blades, which are designed specifically for Japanese cooking.
When you use high-quality cookware, your food doesn’t just come out better; it’s also easier to prepare. BergHOFF's pans, skillets, roasters, stock pots, and beyond (from top industry names) will inspire you to cook more — and better.
You don't have to be a chef to appreciate the breadth of BergHOFF's designs: There is something for everyone. For the prep master we selected a handsome set of forged knives. For your Thanksgiving pies, a professional Cream Whipper. And, for the honeymooners, a stunning 72-piece flatware set. As for us, we'd take the kitchen timer, the stock pot, and the sturdy bamboo cutting board.
