I am putting this disclaimer out there for those of you that know me in person. I was very careful when testing these knives!
We all can agree that having the right sized knife and one that is sharp sure helps with the preparation time for meals. At our house, we have a standing joke that mom needs to be reminded that the knives are sharp. I do seem to get my fingers in the way a little more often than most people I know. That said, let me tell you about the set of ceramic knives I received to test and offer my opinion on from Shenzhen Knives.
In short – THEY ROCK!!
Here is the Product Description:
This set includes the 6.5″ Chef’s Knife, 5″ Slicing Knife, and 4″ Paring Knife. The 3-piece set covers all cutting jobs.
THE CERAMIC ADVANTAGE:
Imagine paper thin tomato slices or perfectly diced onions, Shenzhen Ceramic Knives give you precision slicing every time due to ceramic’s special material properties. The blade is made of an advanced ceramic called zirconium oxide that is much harder than steel, and second in hardness to only diamond.
STEEL KNIVES VS CERAMIC KNIVES:
Unlike ceramic blades, steel blades are porous, and they can sometimes leave behind an after-taste or residue on the food you’re cutting. And due to its softer material, steel blades lose their edge much quicker than a ceramic blade, and they need to be re-sharpened often. Properly cleaning steel knives to prevent rust is a must as well, as they will corrode eventually, unlike ceramic knives.
Because you can’t use ceramic knives to chop or cut through bones, cheeses and other hard foods, ceramic knives will never fully replace the steel knife in the kitchen. You will still need to use your steel knife for heavy duty cutting, but Shenzhen Knives are a perfect complement to your steel knives for slicing fruits and vegetables and other precision cutting tasks. Make sure you read the care instructions that come with your set, or visit their site to learn the best way to maintain your knives.
I love them! My girls and I have been slicing fruits and veggies just to have an excuse to use the knives. Slicing through the apple was like… slicing through soft butter. Amazing!
