Ceramic knife care
The sharpness of ceramic blade lasts really long time. However, needs to be met special ceramic knife care:
STORAGE of ceramic knives
As ceramic blades are not magnetic, you can’t store ceramic knives on magnetic holder. Also if you put it into drawer withouth pocket, I guarantee the blade will damage after some time.
That’s why I recommend to store ceramic knives in knife block.
CLEANING of ceramic knives
The washdisher is not a good idea. The high pressure water can cause the knife to rattle against other items in the machine, causing it to chip. Ceramic knives can be cleaned just manually. If you cut vegetable or fruit, it’s enough to clean it just in warm water. For proper cleaning after meat you can rinse it with a mild detergent can cause the knife to rattle against other items in the machine, causing it to chip.

MANIPULATION with ceramic knives
When you manipulate with the ceramic knife, you should pay attention. For example, if it falls on the ground, can be damaged easily. So if somebody tells you that nothing can happen to ceramic knife, don’t believe him. Despite of fact that ceramic is the second hardest material right after diamond, it’s also very fragile. For example, in comparison with the steel knife – the steel knife is less ‘destroyable’.
USAGE of ceramic knives
I recommend to use ceramic knife only to softer materials – for example for slicing boneless meat, vegetables, fruit and bread. If you slice into meat where is a bone, you can easy get small chips that make the edge dull.
After some time – also despite of good ceramic knife care- could happen that your ceramic knife will get some chips on it’s ceramic blade and will be not sharp enough to cut your favourite food.
Here is described the best way, how you can get your ceramic blade again sharp.
