I have some exciting news! CeraKook have recently launched their new website www.cerakook.com and have now brought their amazing brand in the UK – I am so excited to be apart of their launch.
CeraKook’s main aim is to make ceramic knives affordable to everybody while keeping a great quality. Their knives are excellent to cut and slice fruits and vegetables as well as meat and fish without bones…
Perfect for getting fruit & veg ready for your little ones during the weaning process – We are currently trying baby lead weaning (BLW) which isn’t going too bad so cutting up the fruit & veg for Hayden is a must… And no better other way then with these gorgeous ceramic knives.
Here are a few questions that I’m sure are floating around your heads.
What are ceramic knives made of?
Ceramic knives are made of an advanced ceramic called zirconia. This material, which is second in hardness only to diamond, was originally developed for industrial applications. Zirconium oxide is extremely hard and wear resistant. It has a hardness of 8.2 mohs vs steel at 5-6 mohs and diamond at 10 mohs.
The blade goes through a high-pressure molding process before being heated over several days of temperatures in excess of 1000c. Finally, we grind on a diamond wheel and polish the ceramic blade to form an edge and the final shape.
What is the difference between a black blade and a white blade?
The zirconium oxide blade undergoes an additional firing process, turning it black. This makes the black ceramic blade harder than the white ceramic blade – and thus more expensive. However, both ceramic blade types are very hard and resistant so choosing the black blade over the white should be more a question of taste and design than extra durability.
Can I put my ceramic knife in the dishwasher?
Although they are technically dishwasher safe, we do not recommend washing ceramic knives in the dishwasher for several reasons. First, it’s dangerous if someone forgets about the knife or reaches in the wrong way. Second, objects have a tendency to rattle and shift during the dish washing cycle and this puts your ceramic knife at risk of damage. Finally, ceramic knives are very easy to clean since food does not stick to the surface, so simply rinse with warm water or mild bleach solution.
What can’t I cut with my ceramic knife?
Ceramic knives are for slicing purposes only and should not be used for any other purpose. NEVER force the cut, NEVER cut bones or frozen food and NEVER strike a hard surface with the ceramic blade as it can cause it to chip or the tip to snap off.
Will my ceramic knife break if dropped?
Any knife is at risk of damage if dropped on hard surfaces. Like a steel knife, you can break the tip if the knife lands on it. Depending on the scale of the damage, the tip may be partially repaired. We recommend seeking a professional for any repairs or sharpening work.
CeraKook’s website is ready, but you’ll only be able to pre-order the knives and they will deliver them at the end of November.
To say a big thank you for your patience, they are reducing their prices up to 15/20% on all products so you really don’t want to miss out as it’s only valid till the end of November.
Excited to get my hands on a set of these – Eeeek
