Cuisinart Contour Ceramic Knives
Welcome to the cutting edge of cutlery technology, Cuisinart ceramic knives. Their advanced construction and break resistant ceramic material hold clear advantages over common steel knives. Forged from zirconia, the second hardest material on earth, the resulting break resistant ceramic blade is extremely durable, unbelievably sharp and will not wear out. In fact, ceramic knives offer the absolute sharpest cutting edge available, and they retain their edge longer than steel blades. As a result, the ultra sharp edge slices through food with little effort, so you can create paper thin slices like a pro. Cuisinart ceramic knives are also more durable and less prone to chipping than traditional ceramic knives, and they have a 5-year warranty. Ceramic material is also lightweight, which greatly reduced fatigue during repetitive cutting tasks. The knives are perfectly balanced and ergonomically engineered to feel like a natural extension of your hand. In addition to being lightweight, the ceramic material is also extremely strong. Ceramic is both harder and denser than steel. Because of these properties, ceramic knives resist bacteria and germs, do not retain colors or odors and are impervious to acids, oils and salts. This makes ceramic knives extremely sanitary. A quick rinse under warm water will get these blades much cleaner than a thorough scrubbing of a steel blade. Ceramic knives are also dishwasher safe, which is something no steel blade can claim, and the ceramic blade will never rust, stain or oxidize. Ceramic knives are the perfect complement to any existing cutlery set, and they will soon become the star of your collection.
