Can a Knife Change your Life?
Last year I was lucky enough to work with Canada Beef as a Brand Ambassador. As part of that experience I received a beautiful set of Cutco steak knives. I refer to these as the knives that changes my life. Ok, maybe just a bit of an exaggeration but I assure you I had no idea just how inadequate my existing steak knives were until I started using the Cutco ones. The difference was night and day. And when I had the opportunity to to participate in the new Cooking with Cutco program I absolutely said yes!
Do you Know Cutco?
Cutco has been making knives for over 60 years. All of their products are made in North America and come with the Forever Guarantee.
“CUTCO stands behind their products with a FOREVER satisfaction guarantee. There is no cost, no registration and no receipt required. Performance is guaranteed, and forever means FOREVER. We want every CUTCO customer to be a satisfied customer FOREVER.”
They are the cadillac of knives, well except that, unlike a cadillac, they actually last forever. And that is not an exaggeration. Once you’ve used a Cutco knife you will wonder how you can cook without them.
The Cooking with Cutco Experience
What is Cooking with Cutco? Well it’s really pretty simple, and a lot of fun. I had the opportunity to host a dinner party where my guests actually got to not only enjoy some awesome food and fine wine but got to experience using Cutco products first hand. We learned how easy, healthy and even quick cooking nutritious meals at home can be. This is pretty important to a working mom like me!
Our menu for the evening included chicken (thanks to the support of the Chicken Farmers of Canada), a citrus kale salad, quinoa with fresh veggies, fresh bread and hummus, fresh fruit and some lovely Seven Generation wine from the Bosc family.
With the help of our awesome Cutco consultant, Nicole, my guests were able to see first hand how amazing Cutco knives are and how using the right tools really does make meal preparation quicker and easier.

I have to tell you this was a FUN evening! My guests all love to cook, which is why I invited them, and completely appreciated seeing these tools in action. I’ve hosted a lot of dinner parties but never one exactly like this. It was very hands on and the evening had a really great pace. We laughed, chatted, sipped wine and nibbled on food the whole time and everyone was genuinely impressed with the demonstrations and really appreciated being able to try out the knives for themselves. Quality knives are an investment and being able to not only hold but actually use them is really important.
And the Pitch
Yes my guests were given the opportunity to purchase Cutco products during our Cooking with Cutco event. But the best part, the easy part is – there was no pitch! Because my guests got to not only see but experience Cutco in action there was no need to try and “sell” them on anything. And it’s not just the quality. It’s also what happens after you buy Cutco.
CUTCO stands behind their products with a FOREVER satisfaction guarantee. There is no cost, no registration and no receipt required. Performance is guaranteed, and forever means FOREVER. We want every CUTCO customer to be a satisfied customer FOREVER.
This is big. And just another reason that every one of my guests ordered Cutco products that night. My husband and I even ordered a couple more knives for ourselves. Even the guest who walked away with this awesome carving set, donated by Cutco as a fun party giveaway, bought more knives:
Do You Want to Get Cooking With Cutco?
This was such a fun event that I have to tell you how you can get involved with Cooking With Cutco. There are a couple of options. You can sign up to host a dinner party like I did. A Cutco rep will come to your home, and help you and your guests prepare a delicious meal while learning about Cutco cutlery. And there are rewards for you! You can learn all about hosting a party on the Cooking with Cutco website. Or maybe you want to find out about becoming a Cutco consultant. Our consultant, Nicole, was awesome. She happens to be a fulltime working mother, like myself. One of the reasons she decided to become a Cutco consultant is to save money to take her kids to Disneyland! You can read all about becoming a consultant on the Cooking with Cutco website as well.
I’d love to know if you own any Cutco cutlery! If so what piece(s)?
Thank you to Cutco, Chicken Farmers and the Bosc Family for their sponsorship of this fun event. As always, the opinions expressed here are completely my own.
