These are a very nice of quality set of four ceramic knives and a peeler( that can be used on vegetables and such). They come with an acrylic knife block that needs to be assembled. These knives are not stainless steel like most traditional knives, they are ceramic which are more advanced, the blades never need to be sharpening, they have an ergonomic grip to make it more comfortable when working with them. The long-lasting never need sharpening blade rates in hardness second only to the diamond, the wear resistance is 60 times that of steel and will hold an edge longer than a steel blade. It will not cause any reaction with foods like fruits, and helps maintain the pure taste of food. The weight of the knife is balanced, lightweight, and weighs less than half the weight of steel knives, which helps relieve fatigue and pain when preparing large family meals with repetitive cutting. There are some factors you have to be aware of with ceramic knives ,One of the main ones is Do Not drop them on a hard surface, they will break!, shatter, or chip. Do not sharpen them on your own, if you find that they aren’t as sharp as they were when you first got them a professional who knows how to sharpen ceramic knives and who guarantees their work, that way if something goes wrong you are covered. Do not use plastic or wood cutting boards, or on marble, stone, glass, plates, or title. Do not use to carve, pry open anything, debone or cut anything frozen or cut cheese, use your regular steel knives for these jobs. These jobs require the knife to be able to twist, flex, or just be a more flexible material than the ceramic is. Do not turn the blade on it’s side and smash garlic or any other items. Do not wash the knives in the dishwasher, hand wash only. Washing in the dishwasher will dull the blade, you should never place any good knives in your dishwasher for this reason. If you have some discolorations on the knife blade that are not removed when you wash it by hand, you can clean the blade only (not the handle) with a mild bleach solution. Do not place the blade in an open flame because ceramic conducts heat.
These ceramic knives are really nice. It comes with four different size knives, a peeler and an acrylic knife block that will fit into most any kitchen. This is a very professional set, you will just have to be mindful of the warnings when using ceramic knives. I love them because they are super sharp and stay that way. Just don’t drop one on a tile floor, I did my first one (from a previous purchase) and it shattered, so I no longer have that one, but I know from first hand experience that they will shatter, chip, or break. When these became available for me to try I was happy to see if they were as good as my first ones. I was happy to find these are even better. I recommend these for anyone who is wanting to update their knives. They will help you make cooking even easier. When you are comfortable spending the time cutting up everything then cooking is more fun.
