If you live in Canada, and frequent home and garden & interior design shows – you may have gotten to know the products of Keramikos Kitchen. And if you haven’t, well – you are about to find out! Keramikos kitchen manufactures and sells ceramic kitchen knives from Vancouver.
What a better way, then to just show you. So, here is a great demonstration of the Keramikos Kitchen products, taken at the Calgary Home EXPO this year.
It perfectly explains what ceramic knives are all about:
~ So…Why Ceramic? ~
Ceramic is second when it comes to harness, the first is natural diamond!
For such a high quality and hard stone, it’s so surprisingly light
They will never need sharpening (r if they do, it’ll be 10 years from now) But also they will never rust
to food acids – which means that they won’t stain
use and health benefits of ceramic knives.
- Chemically Inert
this is a fancy way of saying that they won’t make your foods taste like metal like steel knives will.
What does this mean to the everyday cook?
Since they are such long-lasting and durable products, you won’t have to buy new ones for such a long time. It seems like everyone that I know, will invest in a great set of high-quality knives. And, ceramic is a great choice when it comes to knives.
I got 2 Keramikos Knives to review. And, this was the first time that I have used a ceramic knife, so I was really eager to see what all the commotion was about.
I have the 6″ Ceramic Santuko Knife (white ceramic with blue handle) and the 6″ Ceramic Chef Knife (black on black). They both cut amazingly well, they are nice and comfortable to hold and work with. They each slice food with ease, from fruit to meat (but, do not cut through bones!). And, I like being able to cut lettuce without the leaves turning brown (which results from cutting with steel knives) Keramikos kitchen makes fantastic knives that any chef…or SAHM would appreciate.
