The common knives are made of steel. But there is a new kind of knives appear, they are the ceramics knives. I am very curious to it since it seems it is easy to clean them. However, I wonder whether they can be broken easily. They are much more expensive than the steel knives. So I have to think it over before I buy the ceramics knife.

Hmm i think it depends on people some prefer use steel others ceramic knifes. As I am planing to study as cooking chief I will use knifes with what will be easy to work and which will be resistant. But, if you have doubts just try ceramic knifes and you will know how good they are.

The first time I saw people use ceramic knife is at Masterchef Junior Australia. At first I wonder what type of knife is that, then I made a research about it. I saw the price at the market and it way too expensive for me. 1 ceramic knife will cause me around 3 very good steel knife.

Well I think the advantages of ceramic knives are in the power of the material, which can defeat the power of this material is pure diamond. Ceramic materials certainly harder than iron and the sharpness will be sharper than steel, hard material will not easily blunted. Compared with the steel, ceramic knives are much lighter, usually a half times lighter than similar knives of the same size. These advantages sure will help if you frequently use a knife. Also the ability to avoid stains are the specific advantages of ceramic knives. The acidity of food often leads to iron blade changes color. Ceramic blade does not absorb acids so it may be contaminated materials cause stains.

I have been considering buying a ceramic knife. I am more convinced now based on the information you provided. My only concern is, despite the material, I am liable to break it as I often do expensive things, klutz that I am. But maybe the weight will prevent injuries for me too as I have cut myself by accident several times.

Youless, i ever saw this kind of knives being sold in the supermarket. But, at this moment i still prefer to use the steel type of knives. I am not sure whether it can last as long as the steel knife. I think it will break if we accidentally drop it since it is made of ceramics. Besides that, it is much more expensive than the steel knives. Are you going to buy any ceramic knife in future?

Ceramic knives are very expensive, but i think they are very good to be used. I have often seen these knives being used in cooking shows and they have sponsored even the kiddie master chef in the Philippines. If you can afford it, maybe you can try it out. cooking and utensils and stuffs you need to use in the kitchen are personal experiences and whatever works for me may not be your preferred kitchen utensils. =) have a great day and happy discovery! :D hehe

Hi youless, from the image attached the ceramics knives look like steel knives exactly. I would like to take a close look at them after posting this. I hope I can see them more clearly in the bigger image. I haven't seen any ceramics knife before. If they are displayed in any kiosk here in the shopping mall. I will try to use it to see how nice it would be. I believe the salesperson will tell me whether it's easy to break like the same type of cup and bowl we use. It's wise for customer to know more about the stuff, especially those are costly before buying We can learn more about ceramics knives by surfing web Happy posting

Some people like to use ceramic knife for certain tasks, as far as i am concerned, steel knife is good for me, it get the job done. I only use my knife for cutting meat and lite works, i don't need a ceramic knife that cost me more for the time being, i think i will pass this one out for next time.
