I have bought your hams for many years and they are delicious. But the stand that you supply with it has become increasingly bad!
- The metal bolt for the cradle is not cut to the right length to allow the cradle to be fully secured with the nut so the ham could fall off.
- The non-slip patches on the base have stained my wooden kitchen worktop which has now been ruined.
If you charge me so much money for the ham I think you can provide me with a decent stand.
I have written before: your knife is NO good, and the stand is ridiculous! we have wonderful stand, solid and heavy. we do understand you cannot prepare this kind of stand for free, but in my personal opinion better give one item only, for instance a good knife, instead of two lousy items. fortunately the ham is sooooo good!!
They came free with the ham and we were not expecting them to be any good, so w made the mistak of purchasing another knife. Wrong! The stand is of good quality and very attractive and ghe knife is perfectly adequate and doing a good job so far.
The Holder is fine but the knife is pretty basic and not very sharp. I would advise getting a better quality knife and a protective glove to avoid the knife slipping and catching your fingers.
Not a Super holder worth over 100 Euro, but it does its work.
The knife is better than expected if you remember to use a sharpening steen on it now and then.
I didn't expext a freebie to be very good, but I was wrong. The holder was surprisingly steady an does its job as well as a pricier one.
The knife is good as well as long as you remember to use a sharpening steel regurarly.
The construction of the ham holder is good. The problem with it is that the non-stick pads on the underside stain my kitchen work top. I now have many black circles all over my wooden worktop that I cannot remove.
Knife struggles to cut through harder bits of ham. Holder is probably too small for large hams, but is excellent and does not move around.
This ham holder and ham carving knife came with the Serrano ham that we ordered and it was perfect for the job. My husband is very particular about using good knives when cooking or preparing food and was a bit dubious about whether the knife would meet his high standards, however, it was perfect for the job and he is still using it. He is a stickler for a sharp blade and so I'm sure he has sharpened it more than once, but then that is what he does with all our knives! The ham was not only held securely in place and at the perfect angle for carving, it also looked fantastic too. Excellent product.
The knife no longer holds its sharpness in the way that it used to. It is now of a poorer quality
I had a choice of olive oil or the ham holder and knife. I did not expect any thing of the ham holder but thought i could copy the design if nothing else and make a better one. Once received the holder was functional and did the job. The knife looks cheap and is very very sharp and perfect for the job, very pleased i did not have the olive oil.
Holder works well to hold the ham and the knife is very very sharp and keeps sharp for long time.
Bearing in mind that these 2 items came free with my Jamon i was not expecting much but upon taking delivery i was in for a suprise. The ham holder was of a better quality than previous ones which i have received free along with purchases from other companies and of ample size for my 7.5kg Jamon. The carving knife was by far the sharpest one which i have received and once you manage to get through the initial layer of hard fat it slices wafer thin slices with ease. Just be careful of those fingers!
It does the job : it holds even a large ham in place. Easy to assemble (5mins).
If I were ordering a ham every month, I would choose something which has a heavier and larger base plate - this one did wobble a bit when making difficult cuts into hard outside skin bits.
I'm sure there are plenty of better holders and knives out there, but this will definitely do the job.
The wood is stable enough and easy to assemble. It is a *bit* on the small side for the longest hams. One criticism is that the vice at the top does not screw into the wood fully at the top. This is negligible though.
Decent flexible knife, needs a good sharpen though.
Especially considering that I received the holder and knife as a freebie with my ham order, I think that the items are of very good quality! The holder is very sturdy and easy to use, the knife is sharp and slices the ham perfectly.
Excellent value, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them (and in fact I already have recommended the entire ham bundle to friends!!)
the holder is plenty good enough to help in this cutting and sliceing process.the knife once sharp is super.its a free item so dont expect something made with high quality,but as i say it is plenty good enough to help us novices at sliceing.
thanks for great service from this company
A perfectly good ham holder and knife set. Tighten all the bolts to hold the ham securely and sharpen the knife on delivery and after every serving and you will have a very good set that will last you for years.
Considering it was free with the ham I can't really complain, but you get what you pay for!
It does the job of holding a ham, but it's not very sturdy. The cheap allen key that came with it stripped immediately; I recommend using a better tool to screw it together tight, or the stand will be very wobbly.
The knife seems OK as long as you keep sharpening it.
This set came at no cost with the ham we ordered and we didn't expect it to be the best in the market but it is so bad I would have rather spared the disappointment. The knife blade is completely blunt and the ham holder's screws are so loose that you can't achieve any stability at all.
its easy to assemble, does the job well and comes free with your ham. what more could you ask of it? excellent!
We were very happy to receive the ham holder and knife with our Jamon - it has made it much easier for us to get to grips with our first experience of having a whole ham. It was extremely easy to put together and does a great job of adding a bit of rustic authenticity to our kitchen.
I can't really comment on the knife as we've yet to get to grips with the ham, but it was very sharp when tested on a Christmas gammon.
I received the ham holder and knife, free with a ham that I bought. The ham holder does the job very well, and the knife is acceptable for the job, but I would prefer a knife of better quality, which I will buy in the future, but that is just a personal preference.
This ham holder is easy to put together and is essential for carving a ham. However it does wobble a bit as you carve, but given that the item is free it is a good piece of kit.
