Hello friends! Happy Tuesday to you all! I am back to go over the Abundant Chef Ceramic Knives. I was asked to test these out and share my thoughts with you guys! Everything is in the video and below you will find more pictures and information to get entered into the giveaway! Hope you enjoy.
When I was contacted from Abundant Chef, I was able to pick out what I wanted to try. I went for the 9 piece Ceramic Knife Set to test out. It looked like the perfect set to try. It didn't take long before they were here. I thought the packing looked a little cheap for such nice knifes but it's nothing that really matters. Inside the package was 4 fruit and vegetable knifes and one ceramic peeler.
It came with a 6" Ceramic Chef's Knife. This knife is designed to perform well at many differing kitchen tasks, rather than excelling at any one in particular. It can be used for mincing, slicing, and chopping vegetables, slicing boneless pieces of meat. Unlike stainless steel knifes, these are not heavy. They feel light on the wrist and super easy to use.
It also came with a 5" Utility knife. This knife is smaller than a chef's knife but larger than a paring knife. It is a very versatile knife excels at everyday tasks, from cutting sandwiches to slicing meat. This indispensable knife is handy for smaller precision tasks like peeling, trimming and slicing small fruits and vegetables.
Here is the 4' utility knife in the set. This paring knife is great for peeling fruits and vegetables; slicing a single garlic clove or shallot; controlled, detailed cutting, such as cutting shapes or vents into dough; and scoring designs and patterns on surfaces of food.
The last knife in the set is this 3" fruit knife. Thisfruit knife is used to cut and peel fresh fruit at the table in formal and informal dining. Such as peeling an apple for lunch. This little knife is perfect for smaller jobs in the kitchen.
You can see the size difference between the 6" chefs knife on bottom and the 5" utility knife above and...
Here's the difference between the 4" pairing knife and the 3" fruit knife.
What I love about these knifes is they will not rust or turn on you when cutting fruits with a lot of acid. These held up well with daily use in our kitchen for the last couple of weeks. I have tested them out in every way and I am very impressed with how sharp they are and how easy they make the work in the kitchen. A dull knife will just make everything you do just feel so much harder than it should. These knifes are not to be used on any kind of meat with bones. They are ceramic and will break if you are try that. Also if you were to drop one on a hard floor, there is a good chance you could shatter it. So be careful!
All the knifes in this set cut like a dream. No joke. They are super super sharp and have held their edge well. But if you are not use to using really sharp knifes, watch out otherwise you will probably cut yourself. I would rather have a very sharp knife that I have to keep my fingers away from rather than a old dull knife that makes you do a lot of work to cut through something. You are not suppose to put these in the dishwasher because it could damage them. They are to be washed in hot soapy water by hand and you can use bleach and water also.
These knifes have quickly became my go-to set. I use them pretty much daily and for the price I think they are amazing. I might just end up getting a few for Christmas gifts for my family and friends. Since you guys are my " online family" I have a gift for you too!
