Always on the lookout for products that will make your life easier, HandStands is pleased to introduce the latest in cutlery advancements: ceramic.
And if ceramic brings to mind stressful childhood memories of Grandma calling out, “Slow down or you’ll break my priceless ceramic vase!” (pronounced ‘vaus’ of course), you’re thinking of the wrong thing. This is not your grandmother’s ceramic. This ceramic is tough enough to withstand being thrown across the room or onto a hard floor (which by the way we don’t recommend, especially with knives). In fact, Keuken Ceramic Knives are not recommended for the dishwasher, but only because they could damage your other valuables.
Keuken Ceramic Knives retain their original sharpness up to 10 times longer than most household steel knives. The ergonomic handle provides smooth slicing, and allows you to maintain a strong controlled grip. Impervious to food acids' discoloration, the Keuken Ceramic Knives leave no metallic taste or odor, and help to maintain the freshness of fruit and vegetables.
This modern innovation is easy to clean, simple to use, and promises to be the perfect kitchen companion. Try an individual piece, or one of our convenient knife block sets.
