Hello Foodie Friends!  A sharp knife is a cook’s best friend.  This is evident with the use of a ceramic knife that offers tremendous ease and saves time as we cut up the vegetables.  Ceramics are a very fun and interesting breed of knife that are deceivingly sharp.  Professionals and home cooks use ceramic knives due to their sharpness, strength, density, and precision making it a great tool to add to your culinary collection.  Kyocera ceramic knives are the perfect compliment to your cutlery at home. As soon as you pick up a Kyocera ceramic knife, you will be intrigued with the benefits of using ceramics. The knife is light in weight yet balances perfectly in your palm. It is excellent for slicing fruits, vegetables, and boneless meats. The blade is ground to razor sharp perfection and holds their edge 10 times longer than other professional cutlery. Ceramic knives will not brown foods or transfer a metallic taste or smell.  Ceramic is impervious to acids, oils, and sales. The blades will never rust. 

Ceramic knives are intended to complement, not replace your cutlery. Use steel for carving, prying, and boning product.  Ceramic knives come in a variety of sizes making them perfect for all types of culinary tasks. Because of the manufacturing process, the blades of a ceramic knife are flat and free from waves. As a result of this technological advantage, the edges need to be ground with a diamond wheel or diamond sharpener.  Traditional knife sharpeners cannot sharpen a ceramic knife. Kyocera has a lifetime program for sharpening their ceramic knives.  You can also purchase one of their sharpeners made specifically for their ceramic knives. 

Caring for your ceramic knife is important to ensure proper care and the prolonged life of the knife:

• Please exercise the necessary caution when working, as the blades are very sharp.

• Ceramic knives are intended for the cutting of food. They are unsuitable for hitting and levering.

• Ceramic blades are not shock resistant! Do not allow the knife to fall onto a hard floor or similar surfaces!

• To ensure that the blade remains sharp over a long period, we recommend the use of a cutting surface made from wood or plastic.

• Never try to cut hard objects such as frozen food, bones, metal, etc!

• Never hold the knife in an open fire (high conductance of heat)!

• Never clean with a wire brush!

• Clean with a mild detergent after use.

• Store the ceramic knife in the supplied protective cover.

• Cleaning in a dishwasher is not recommended, unless it can be ensured that the knife cannot come into contact with other objects.

• Store out of the reach of children!

Ceramics are a cutting edge technology that can help make your culinary prep easier and fun.  Stop by Compliments to the Chef in Saratoga Springs for an assortment of Kyocera Ceramic knives.  Remember: “Life Happens in the Kitchen.” Take Care, John and Paula
