For home cooks, where do you store your Japanese knives? I imagine not the blocks because of different sizes?

I put them back in the box, then in a cupboard. Or my knife bag for work.

Then bang for buck cookware...
Lagostina 3-Ply 13-Piece Cookware Set | Canadian Tire
This is the best deal on cookware I've seen. Tri-ply.
I have 2 sauciers from the same line, works great.
I plan to get the dutch oven today as it is 70% off at Canadian Tire.

I was also wondering with the cookware set you suggested, is there something that this set can't do?

Lastly, what type of knifes do I need for everyday use? I would like to get the Japanese knifes but there is so many to choose from.

The type of cooking I do is things such as steaks, chicken, fish, stews, soups, scrabbled eggs, pancakes, etc

I think all that stuff at Canadian Tire has warranty.
So make sure you keep the receipts somewhere safe.

As for the stainless set, the Lagostina doesn't actually have a fry pan...
It looks more like a wok. High sided is less messy. But more difficult to grab, flip and turn stuff.

sonick suggested the the Tramontina set from US Walmart.
- Their sauce pan (small pot) has high sides.
- The 12 and 14 piece sets come with a 10" and 12" fry pan.
- And while I use a 10 qt stock pot, I would be ok with 8 qt.

If Cooks Illustrated suggested it, it's definitely a solid buy.
And after reading the Serious Eats review on their fry pan...
I think I might have to take back my suggestion.

The set comes with a sautee pan (the vertical sided fry pan). Rarely touch mine.


So while I haven't see it in person.
It looks to be the best set I have seen on paper.
I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on it.


As for what it can't do?
- Giant massive batches of soup.
- Scrambled eggs.
I would still budget about $35-40 for a non-stick. Scrambled eggs done right is a crowd pleaser.


Also, depends how much you like your steaks.
I use a carbon steel pan for my steaks (De Buyer mineral carbon steel)
I used to use my cast iron (Lodge)
But this might just be because I don't have a really good stainless pan.
Hoping the other experts here can shed some light on that.



As for knives?
1 good Chef knife is the most important thing. 210mm or 8" is pretty much the standard suggestion.
I am currently using the Tojiro DP 210 Gyuto.
The Shun Sora 8" Chef has just caught my eye.

To any normal person, they won't need anymore more than this.
The performance of VG-10 steel is plenty good enough, even for me.
After that, you're moving into carbon steels and powdered steels.... And that's a whole different ballpark.
But don't forget maintenance.
A honing rod is a must $25-30
And then a cheap aliexpress stone (3000 grit) for $25 would be good enough.


Then in descending order.
- Paring knife
- Bread knife
- Cleaver (if you work with bones)
- Filet/boning knife


I have yet to get my way to the boning knife.
I'm going to get a nicer paring knife first.

For that price, I'd rather go to costco and pick up the kirkland branded one that's made in france. They stock them periodically.

I have the TruClad version and I would say if you have the extra $150, go for that one.

Glasses- home sense ? . I bought 12 beer sleeves/ glasses for $10 a while ago. They have sales a lot.
