Wondering what ceramic kitchen knives are all about? Made of strong materials such as aluminum oxide and zirconium oxide, ceramic knives are durable and have sharp edges that do not require to be sharpened for years. This feature makes them a favorite with many chefs who find is easier to use them to cut extreme thin slices or cut with precision.
Ceramic knives are a great option for people looking for a knife that can help them slice vegetables, fruits or boneless meats conveniently. However, although the ceramic blade is more strong than steel, they tend to be more fragile and can break or chip if you use it to cut frozen foods or bone or accidentally drop it.
A great advantage of ceramic knives is that they are lightweight. This not only helps reduce hand fatigue, but also requires you to use less effort to do certain slicing tasks. Unlike metal knives, ceramic blades do not pit, rust or leave metallic taste on foods. However, since these knives are sharp and brittle, it is recommended that you store them in a custom box or sleeve.
