Elegana Ceramic Knives
Elegana Ceramic Knives are the ideal knives for most any job. The are wonderful for cutting and slicing up fruits and vegetable, meats and fish. The knives are ultra sharp and keep their sharpness longer than conventional knives. The knives themselves are crafted in a state-of-the-art facility using Cold Isostatic Pressing technology at 2700 degrees Fahrenheit sintering and handle injection. When this is complete the knives are hand polished and the sharpness is tested. Finally, a series of number is laser engraved into the knives. This makes for BPA free knives that have a mirror blade finish that are beautifully shiny and extremely germ resistant. The knives are FDA and LFGB certified.

How to use Elegana Ceramic Knives
The Elegana ceramic knives should always be used on a plastic or wooden cutting board to keep the blades working their best. Before each use check the blades to be sure they are not chipped or damaged. Use the proper knife for the job at hand. When finished using clean properly and place back in their protective sheath. The ceramic peeler is great for both right-handers and lefties as the blade can be switched by pushing the top of the blade holder to release the blade and turned around and placed back in the handle.
How to Clean Elegana Ceramic Knives
After each use, the Elegana ceramic knives must be properly cleaned. It is recommended that the knives be hand washed in warm soapy water being careful to not drop the knives in the sink. The knives can be washed in the dishwasher, but they must be in the top rack only and they can not touch other items.
My Thoughts on the Elegana Ceramic Knives
I love how lightweight and comfortable to the hand these knives are. I really love that the blades are extremely sharp and slice through things easily. I’m partial to things that are germ resistant since I just loathe getting sick. Overall, I’d say that this set of knives is a must have for any kitchen, from the newbie to the chef. They are an absolutely gorgeous set of knives.
Be careful with these knives as they are extremely sharp (well, that should go without saying but……) The Elegana ceramic knives should not be used for prying as the blade will snap. They are not good for cutting hard or frozen food for this same reason. Do not drop the knives on hard surfaces as they can be easily chipped. The knives are brittle so care must be taken.
