The new 6-Piece Knife Block Set serves as a sleek kitchen countertop essential, and features the same iconic retro form consumers have come to know and love. The full set includes six knives: a Vegetable Knife, a Utility Knife, a Meat Knife, a Santoku Knife, a Bread Knife, and a Chef’s Knife, each featuring a German stainless steel blade and handle. A matching 6-slot acacia wood base holds the set together, which is wrapped in a powder-coated, carbon steel body with anti-slip grip, and is available in Cream, Black, and Pastel Blue colorways. The Knife Block Set is available all-together, while the knives and blocks are also available for purchase separately.

Inclusive of a refrigerator and freezer combination, the 18 cu. ft., EnergyStar®-qualified FAB38 is over 3 inches wider, deeper, and taller than the FAB32 model, standing at over 27 inches wide, 33 inches deep, and 80 inches tall. The new model is ideal for the consumer looking for extra storage space, and features a Multiflow cooling system with electronic temperature controls, four shelves, innovative “No Frost” technology that prevents icy build-up in the freezer, and more.
