Henckel versus Wusthof knives

I've listened that Arcos (a spanish manufacturer) manufactures knives for Zwilling. Zwilling bought a part of the Arcos company because both manufacturers was in competition.

Asking about zwilling knives

I think that Arcos (Spanish) manufactures some series to Zwilling although nobody have assured me that it's like that. And I think that Arcos has enough technology to manufacture the Zwilling knives. Look its products here http://www.arcos.es/en/index.php
Wusthof Cassic looks more comfortable than Zwilling Profesional S, but Zwilling Cuisine looks more comfortable even.

I'll wait for the christmas offersm but I probably buy Zwilling or Global. These are the trademark easy to find for me because I would like to feel and see the knive before of buy it.

Thank you to everybody for your replies.

Asking about zwilling knives

2 mens means Zwilling, 1 man means Henckels international.
I think too Henckels is manufactured in China or Taiwan.
But I know that some Zwilling series are manufactured in Spain. But I don't know which.
If I buy a set it will be a set of three knives (chef, paring and slicing).
Forschner is Vistorinoz in Europe. It's a good trademark but I don't know where to find kitchen knives of this trademark.

Asking about zwilling knives

I've seen that Global is cheaper than Zwilling, at least here in Spain.
But Zwilling does offer for Christmas. So I'm waitting to see these offers.

I don't know the Shun knives or where buy it in Spain.
I like the shape of the Japanese knives blade, is slimmer that the German knives.
Thank you.

Asking about zwilling knives

The German knives are better than the Spanish one. I already have Spanish knives (Arcos forjado aleman), and I'm looking for any better.
The Japanese knives are very expensive for me.
So I'm thinking in buy some German knives, and the shops that I know told me that for Christmas, Zwilling does promotions and I could buy a set cheaper.
For Wusthof I would need to look for any shop that sell it.

Asking about zwilling knives

I need to know the differences in quality.
I know that the logo is different.

Not all the series of Zwilling are manufactured in Germany. Some of them are manufactured in Spain, but I don't know which are manufactured in each place.

Paella Burner and Stand

I think the burners are cheaper is Spain that there.
I'm from Spain, but I live in Gandía, near of Valencia.
Here in Spain there is gas bottles of butane. With this bottles, you can take the burner where you want.
If you have looked the link that I've put before, you can see that the burner has three short legs, so the flames aren't near of the surface where you put the burner.
This burner can be used in many places: on the cooking top (if it's done of steel or stone ), on the ground, on the glass ceramic,... The surface must not be done of any inflamable material.
Is advisable to use the burner in a place ventilated because the propane or the butane consume the oxygen, and it is dangerous in small and closed places.

I'm sure that in Sevilla you will find any burner. Just ask for 'ferreterias' (shops where tools are sold) or 'hipermercados' (large supermarket) in Sevilla. Tell them that you want to buy any 'paellero' , don't confuse with 'paellera' because it's the pan where the paella is done.

Paella Burner and Stand

My parents have a paella burner, but without legs. Like this http://www.demenaje.com/Bienvenido/ta...
Our burner work well and can be used with any pan designed for gas, in fact these burners work with gas.
The burner that you show has wheels, so is possible that displace while you're cooking.
As the legs are openned, i think it's stable. 30 inches tall, 25 inches wide: is almost as tall as wide.

I think the burner you've found is a bit expensive.
In spanish is called 'paellero'.

Asking about zwilling knives

Do you think Wusthof is a better option than Zwilling?
Which of each one has better quality-price ratio? (I don't know if this question is done correctly, if you don't understand that, tell me).

Thank you for your reply.
J. A. Henckels has a model forged, it's 'classic'.
I know that J. A. Henckels is lower than Zwilling but why? The materials, the finish?
Zwilling has also models stamped. 'signature' for example.

Asking about zwilling knives

I would know the diferences between the trademarks J. A. Henckels international and Zwilling J. A. Henckels.
And I would like get some opinions about the knives of these trademarks.

I've seen on the internet that Arcos (a spanish company that manufactures knives ) manufactures knives to Zwilling. Is it true? If it is true, what series manufactures Arcos?.

Sorry for my mistakes, I'm spanish and my level of English is low.
