Shenzhen Knives Review and Giveaway


"Shenzhen Ceramic Knives is the leading online retailer of ceramic knives and ceramic knife sets. Each knife you purchase comes with a 30-day money back guarantee."

I've always been so jealous of people that can peel a fruit, potato, or vegetable with a peeling knife. I remember, when I was younger, watching my grandmother peel peaches with her "favorite" peeling knife and being so jealous that I couldn't. Of course, as I've gotten older, I've tried and tried to peel things with a knife, but I end up taking huge chunks out of the food or coming close to slicing my finger off! 
Well, I received a ceramic peeler from Shenzhen to review and I love it!

It's so "modern" and classy looking. I know, that's the last thing you'd think to be hearing about a peeler, but I'm someone who likes all of her utensils and kitchen supplies to look nice and sleek. I noticed too, that when I use a traditional peeler, the peels from the food sometimes get caught in the blade. When I used this ceramic peeler, the peelings didn't get caught. It's also very light and comfortable to use. My finger doesn't end up hurting when I'm done peeling!

What are the advantages of ceramic as opposed to a regular blade?
  • They say sharper, longer and are harder than steel
  • They will not rust and are very easy to clean
When you do wash this ceramic peeler, be sure to clean it in a sink with soapy water. Why? Because the motion from the dishwasher might damage the blade. Ceramic is very durable, but not flexible. 
Not only do they have ceramic peelers, but they also have ceramic knives. You can also buy them on amazon. Be sure to check them out!

I threw out my mother-in-law's broken/rusty peeler, and she is upset about it. I like this one, because it is made of sturdy materials, and will not rust.

Jean said...

I learned...The material's properties make it particularly resistant to wear and tear, which means that a ceramic blade can hold its edge much longer than a steel blade without the need for re-sharpening.

Shenzhen Price Advantage

Unlike our name-brand competitors, who will spend millions on marketing or professional chef endorsements, Shenzhen Knives keeps marketing expenses to a minimum. In addition, most ceramic knives after production, have passed through multiple layers of distributors (who add their own price mark-ups) prior to arriving at the retail distribution point. Our Internet distribution model enables us to bring our ceramic knives DIRECTLY from the factory to YOU, the consumer at a significant price savings.
