As far as vacuums, you gotta get a dyson. ๐Ÿ™‚

Personally, I wouldn’t get a knife block. Get individual knives like a good, all around one, serrated one, paring, etc. Store them with knife shields in a drawer. I had a knife block that I ended up throwing away. It took up too much space and wasn’t worth it.

I don’t know about reasonably priced but we have a ginsu knife block and Dyson vacuum. The knives we had before we were married so I don’t even know if either of those places carry the brand but I would HIGHLY suggest a Dyson if you don’t mind registering for something a bit pricey. You could go with the DC-24 non animal ball for like $400 but if you have pets, definitely think about the DC-24 animal which will be a bit more expensive but totally worth it.

Vacuum: Dyson

Knives: Henckels

Both are kinda pricey.. Not sure what you were looking for in terms of “reasonably priced” since that’s subjective ๐Ÿ˜€ but In My Humble Opinion these brands are TOTALLY worth it!

@coyote:  Exactly this.


My parents have those knives and I smile on the inside everytime I get to use one. The dyson vacuum makes me WANT to vacuum. It’s that good.

I got a nice set of KitchenAid knives for Christmas from Future Brother-In-Law. They are awesome! As for the vacuum, I just got a Bissel, and I am loving it. It’s got a turbobrush tool that makes me want to vacuum out the furniture and stairs!

Check out consumer reports. Darling Husband was just saying they just did vacuums and the Dyson actually was like 4th-5th or something. Can’t remember what was #1.


Darling Husband picked out Victorinox/Forschner for our knives after a lot of research. I really like them. He originally wanted Wusthof but they are really pricey and he decided he liked the others better.

Someone just bought us our Wusthof knife block (it was an 18-piece set). I’m so excited! We don’t have it in our hands yet (they just bought it today) but Wusthof is amazing – highly recommend! We had originally registered for individual knives as Fiance is super particular about what he wanted, but my mom didn’t think it was a good idea (like people might feel weird about just buying a knife…whereas a knife block is pretty standard). You can always add individual knives in the future if there is something you want that doesn’t come with the set.

And as other have said, Dyson for sure. I LOVE vacuuming with my Dyson and I really hated vacuuming before we got it ๐Ÿ™‚

I love my Henkel knives! There are various levels of the knife and we got the mid-level kind, so not something a resturant chef would use but also not junk. It’s wonderful!

Dyson for vacuums, they are God’s gift to pet owners.

As for knives I LIVE for my Cutco knives. My family has been giving me a piece at a time for all birthdays, anniversaries and now bridal showers. I love watching my collection grow and they are the best knives (and serving utensils) on the planet. They have the black handle and what I love the new white pearl handles.

  We have a Riccar vacuum and I love it! It works really well on any surface. The only downfall is that it is not a bagless vacuum. I am weird and like seeing everything that my vacuum picks up…makes me feel like vacuuming was worth my time ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve talked to a few people who have had problems with their Dyson vacuums, however, you could probably say the same for any brand.
