Ceramic knives have become widely popular among home chefs, as not only do they keep their edge for a long while, they are also not prone to stain. This makes these knive easy to maintain, and allow you to eat more instead of tending to knife maintenance.
This review is on the Dalstrong Ceramic Knives Set. This knife set by Dalstrong includes two knives, a 6.5 inch Santoku knife, and a 3.75 inch Paring knife. These two knives are essential in the kitchen as they perform many of the basic chores. The Santoku is similar to a chefs knife, which is the kitchen workhorse. It is mainly used to slice, dice, and mince foods. The paring knife is normally used for the smaller more intimate tasks, such as peeling fruit and carving vegetables.
The blades on these knives are very sharp, and slice through chicken breasts like butter, however they should not be used on harder objects such as bones and frozen foods. It should also be noted that since ceramic blades are more delicate than steel, they may break easier if dropped. One of the benefits of ceramic blades is that they don’t absorb the scent or flavor of the food you just cut, as steel knives do.
The handle on these knives are very comfortable to hold, and the overall knife is lighter than a steel knife. This helps prevent stress to the hand, especially when cutting large amounts of food.
The knife is aesthetically pleasing too. The mirrored finish on the blade looks fantastic, as well as the silver cap on the tip of the handle. The included sheaths are a big plus, as they are needed with such delicate knives. I normally wash these knives by hand, as I don’t want to risk them breaking in the washing machine.
I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review, and these are my unbiased thoughts on the product.
