I love my birthday and this year I have even more reason to love it because this year I get to give one lucky reader a gift. As you know I’m always on the lookout for new kitchen supplies and tools. I recently had the chance to try out a ceramic knife from Shenzhen and I can honestly say I was really impressed. When the box first came I was ready to hand it off to M to use in the kitchen – that would have been a bad idea. It doesn’t look like much of anything and I thought for sure it’s cutting abilities would be minimal. I was wrong.
Honestly I didn’t know much about ceramic knives so here are some fun facts;
Ceramic knives are rust proof and have a non-stick surface for easy clean-up.
They are made with zirconium oxide that is harder than ordinary steel and almost as hard as diamond.
Because of this ceramic knives can hold their edge longer than a steel blade.
I had shared this picture last week with a great soup recipe I had made. It was the first time I’d used the Shenzhen knife. It sliced through the potatoes with no resistance and the softer zucchini with the same precision. I have a lot of knives ranging from very cheap steak knives to $100+ knives. For cutting vegetables this knife was great. A few things however to keep in mind. This isn’t the knife to use if you’re cutting through any kind of bone. This blade (like a steel or metal blade) can get knicks and chips in it. If that happens you will need to have it re-sharpened. The directions I got with mine cautioned me to avoid sharpening with a metal sharpening stick.
