I do a lot of cooking and one tool I always need is a sharp knife. It’s important to have a sharp knife so that it makes cutting easier. Dull knives actually lead to more injuries then sharp knives! Have you ever heard of ceramic knives? While I had heard of them, I never tried one until this past week. Shenzhen Knives was nice enough to send me a 3 piece set of their Ceramic knives, including a 6.5″ Chef’s Knife, 5″ Slicing Knife, and 4″ Paring Knife.
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.
THE SHENZHEN KNIVES ADVANTAGE: Shenzhen Knives is the leading online brand of ceramic knives. As a result of our e-commerce only sales model, we can make high performance ceramic technology available to everyone. Even though ceramic knives were first introduced over 25 years ago, the price has not changed much, even with improvements in ceramic technology and manufacturing. We soon realized that there were so many layers of marketing and distribution. At Shenzhen Knives we do not spend millions on celebrity chef’s endorsements, and avoid brick and mortar retailers who need to add their huge markup to cover their overhead.
The first knife I tried was the slicing knife. I wanted to slice some fruit for a fruit tray. The slicing knife cut right through the apples, pears, and oranges. I loved how the food didn’t stick to the blade and how easy the blade was to clean. I also love the fact that a ceramic knife won’t rust or stain and it won’t give your food a metallic taste!
Next I tried the ceramic Chef’s knife. I was making stir fry for dinner and needed to chop peppers, carrots, and onions. The Chef’s knife cut through all of the vegetables without any resistance! Another great feature of these Ceramic knives are that they keep their sharp edge better than a stainless steel knife.
So, while I was skeptical about how well these knives would work, they ended up being amazing. I can’t wait to use these as my fruit, vegetable, and cheese knives and they will have a permanent place my kitchen!
