Ceramic Chef Knives Stand the Test of Time

Ceramic Chef Knives

Ceramic Chef Knives

How often have you bemoaned the cruel fate that leaves you sharpening that chef knife once more? It can seem as though you have to sharpen it almost the second you’ve made a cut. In fact, if you’re using a steel chef knife, you might just be sharpening it every few cuts. Ceramic chef knives can help you avoid this horrible fate and find more time in the kitchen that doesn’t involve a whetstone.

Ceramic chef knives offer some startling benefits over their steel brethren. The first benefit is hardness, which is the quality that allows ceramic blades to keep their edge longer. Ceramic knives have a hardness rating of about 8.2 (steel comes in around 5.5 or so), which means that they can hold an edge ten times longer than a steel chef knife.

Ceramic chef knives never discolor, won’t rust or corrode and you don’t have to worry about the blade being etched by certain types of food. Therefore, these knives are far more enduring than an equivalent steel blade. Because you will not have to worry about the knife corroding over time, you can enjoy the unique beauty (and lots of use) that comes from these blades.

Ceramic chef knives also offer other benefits. For instance, you will find that ceramic blades are denoted as chemically inert. You will not find this with steel blades. What this means is that the blade has a tightly closed microscopic structure (unlike steel). Why is this important? First, you will not have to worry about transferring the taste of one food to another. Second, you won’t have to worry about cross-contamination. Finally, you won’t have to worry about that metallic tang that steel knives leave behind.

If this sounds appealing, then you should certainly consider purchasing one of our many quality ceramic chef knives available in our online store at www.keramikoskitchen.com.
