Ozeri OZK1 Elite Ceramic Chef’s Knives Set

I make no secret about spending a lot of time in the kitchen, and I’m always game to try new things there. I was very curious about ceramic knives, and tried a set earlier this year that had some serious issues for all-around usability. So when Ozeri decided to let me try their set, I was 100% on board. I’m glad I did, because these knives are superior to my last set in every way.

Ceramic knives are a great alternative to stainless steel knives. They stay sharper much longer, are much lighter, and can usually be had for a fraction of the cost of a good, traditional stainless steel knife. They are made of 100% ceramic, which makes them impervious to rust and corrosion, and moisture, oils and acids found in foods. They’re well balanced, perform well for a variety of tasks, from slicing, chopping, dicing and paring. They’re easy to clean have ergonomic non-slip handles that make your kitchen tasks a breeze. This set includes a 5 & 1/2″ Chef’s knife, a 5″ utility knife, and a 2 & 3/4″ paring knife. They are polished to a mirror finish whuch makes clean-up a breeze. The form of the non-slip handle encourages a proper grip on the knife and the angle makes all cutting tasks no trouble whatsoever, and because they are so light, there’s no hand or arm fatigue if you’re doing a lot of kitchen prep work.

I would very much like to see a larger chef’s knife in the set, as well as a larger paring knife. While the paring knife is 2 & 3/4″, it looks and works much smaller. There’s also the fact that as sharp as ceramic knives are, you can’t resharpen them like traditional stainless steel knives. And, even though they hold an edge up to 10 times longer than steel, ceramic knives can be brittle and chip easily with improper storage (Not a problem with these Ozeri OZK1 Elites, as they come with a protective plastic sheath for each blade) and cutting through things like bone or hard pits. Also, you can’t use the edge to crush garlic like I do with my steel knives.

These Ozeri OZK1 Elite knives are a great addition to my kitchen “arsenal”, and I’m glad to have them. They’re very sharp out of the box, plenty so for any and all kitchen tasks both big (carving a pot roast), small (chopping up veggies), and delicate (thinly slicing tomatoes without squishing them). You know you’re getting a quality kitchen tool set, and Ozeri stands behind everything they sell 100%. As they say, “Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed”. And they mean it.
