Cooking.com has launched Chef Knife Guru, a new online store focused exclusively on cutlery with a comprehensive knife buying guide. The store is Cooking.com's first specialized category store with companion content destination to help educate and advise shoppers both new to and familiar with cutlery. http://knives.cooking.com/guide/ Visitors to the store can easily find more information on top brands and recommended items in the guide, and likewise, visitors to the guide can easily purchase featured items directly in the store. Chef Knife Guru is branded as an authority within Cooking.com, offering top-rated kitchen knives for a range of budgets and lifestyles, from industry-leading brands like Wüsthof, Shun and Global.
Tracy Randall, CEO of Cooking.com, had this to say: "We chose to create this cutlery-focused store because we found cutlery to be an area where shoppers often desire education and advice before purchasing. This new store integrated with buying guide offers an added layer of customer service built right into the shopping experience."
