Excellent wear properties – the Ceramic Knife needs far less sharpening and Meyer’s advanced Ceramic Knife, even less!
Stable and flexible strength – the strength of Zirconium, a colorless mineral is far greater than steel
Very fine particle size – gives a sharper edge to the blade
Ceramic Knife is 8.5 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, compared to 4.5 for normal steel and 7.5 to 8 for hardened steel and 10 for diamond. It is 2nd to diamond in terms of hardness! Therefore, the blade has a hard edge that stays sharper for longer duration when compared to conventional steel knives. In fact, the sharpness lasts even longer than professional blades and high-carbon steel.
Ceramic Knife VS Steel Knife:
Ceramic knives are comparatively harder than steel knives and will not corrode in harsh environments, unlike the latter. You don’t even need to sharpen ceramic knife as often as you need to sharpen its counterpart. In addition, it is much easier to clean a ceramic knife than a stainless steel knife as it is very dense and non-porous. A quick rinse in warm water will make a ceramic knife much cleaner than a thorough scrubbing of a metal knife. Further, strong smells of fish, garlic, onion and etc. are easily washed up just with warm water.
1. Immune to Rust:
As it is non-reactive, non-magnetic, it doesn’t corrode in harsh environments.
2. Super Sharp & Sleek:
Don’t get deceived by its fancy appearance as it is meant to slice through food with super precision. It is razor-sharp and meant to last long! So, this knife is bound to be a your favourite ally in your kitchen and an integral part of your cooking pattern!
3. Light like a feather:
Manoeuvring your knife will be extremely easy as it requires no effort at all, unlike its steel counterparts. The average ceramic knife is about half the weight of a steel blade, which makes them very easy to handle, therefore, when chopping large quantities of food, it is a lot less tiring to use a Ceramic blade. The ergonomic handle reduces fatigue, while the lightweight and good balance make cutting nearly effortless.
It is scientifically proven that Ceramic Knives are immune to acids, juices, salt or other substances which are known to cause stains. Thereby, the knives will not affect the taste of the food or its healthy properties – hence, an ideal choice to prepare food for young babies. It doen't even absorb odour from food ensuring that the taste remains unadulterated.
5. Perfect for details:
Ceramic Knives are great for delicate tasks, like peeling tomatoes or making super-thin slices of vegetables for garnishes, along with all of the typical paring tasks. The serrated edge produces wafer thin slices of fish, fruits/ veggie, then slides gently through the soft interior. Though grounded to minute precision and polished to perfection, Ceramic Knives are not meant to chop all kinds of food. Everything has their own uses and should be used specifically for that. These knives are designed to cut through soft vegetables with accuracy and comfort and shouldn’t be used in cutting hard materials such as frozen food or bones, otherwise they may crack or chip!
Words of Caution:
Do not scrape or bend the ceramic blade and subject it to extreme temperatures. Do not drop the knife on hard surfaces including sink. Avoid cutting on marble, glass, plates, tile or hit against china or flatware.
