Ceramic vs Steel Knives
Should I buy Steel or Ceramic Knives?
Enjoy the natural taste and smell of food with a ceramic kitchen knife.
A ceramic knife is about half the weight of an equivalent steel knife, chopping and cutting tasks also become much easier. The knives also benefit people with wrist and arm injuries or arthritis.
The handle is made from a high quality bio-degradable material derived from corn. The design makes it easy for use in repetitive food preparation and is made from PLA (polylactic acid).
Ceramic is not a metal therefore will not react in contact with acidic foods or water.
The ceramic blade is made from a material called Zirconium oxide, not steel, which means no oxidation occurs allowing your food to keep the living enzymes even after being cut. The ceramic blade (Zirconium oxide) stays sharp for up to 10 times longer than steel blades.
With a simple rinse under the tap, all smell such as ginger and garlic are removed from the blade.
