As I mentioned in my last post about trying to complete my lineup of the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Cuisine line, the meat fork has been very difficult to find!
had pretty much given up hope after my father-in-law had done an
extensive search online, and even called the manufacturer over
Christmas. When I recently launched my new quest to complete the set
ASAP, I looked again. All these months of searching (maybe even a
year), and now I was finally able to find it!
I present to you, the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Cuisine Fork!
didn't tell hubby that I had ordered it, holding my breath that it
would actually show up. I was a little skeptical since the site I found
it on was in the UK, and looks less than professional. But I do have
to give a shout out to http://langtoninfo.co.uk/.
Placing my order was pretty difficult. I wanted to pay by CC, and the
site said it took PayPal or CC, but every time I tired using my CC, it
bounced me back to PayPal and gave me an error and told me to wait 15
minutes. Imagine how frustrated I was becoming after 4 attempts and
still no luck. In finally caved and used PayPal. Once I got that all
set up, everything else went smoothly. I placed my order, got a
confirmation that it was in the system, got a confirmation the next day
that they had received my order and began processing it, and it shipped 3
business days later with an additional email notice. I emailed them to
find out how long I should wait for the package to arrive in the
states. They promptly emailed me back the next day (quite timely given
the time difference!). They were always informative with timely
updates. I think I was told to give it 3-4 weeks. It arrived only 5
mailing days later! Imagine my surprise when it wasn't even on my mind yet since it had just shipped and we were walking in the door from our Memorial Day Chascation when there it was. WOW! The box was a bit beat up, and in German, but
the fork is in perfect condition and hubby was so surprised and
impressed that I obtained it.
difficulty - the bread knife. I've attempted to order it from 4 sites now,
and all have failed. I wish these companies would take out of stock items
off their websites. :-/ But I will continue trying to find one of my
last few knives that I need!
After that, we hope to get a set of steak knives. One thing at a time though... these babies don't come cheap.
