I was recently sent a gorgeous 9 Piece Ceramic Cutlery Knife and Peeler Set from Abundant Chef in exchange for a review and it’s my pleasure to do just that.
I’ve enjoyed these ceramic knives – as well as the ceramic-bladed vegetable peeler every single day since they came in the mail. I was attempting to time my review closer to Father’s Day and Mother’s Day, because these would make exceptional, useful, original, and beautiful gifts for Mom or Dad.
Benefits of Ceramic Knives
As far as I’m concerned, no kitchen knife collection is complete without at least one (preferably more than one) ceramic knife. I’d go so far as to say they’re essential.
I have varying sizes of steel-bladed knives that I use for meat, but I wouldn’t think of using them for my vegetables or fruit. That’s where the ceramic knives come in.
In addition to being extra handsome and light-weight, ceramic knives are a must have when it comes to slicing vegetables. Ceramic knives don’t contain “metal ions.” Without turning a review into a science lesson, this means that ceramic knives (and ceramic bladed peelers) won’t brown your vegetables or fruits.
Ever cut lettuce for a salad only to find that, after a few hours in the refrigerator, the cut edges are brown and ugly. It then gives a whole new meaning to “tossed salad” when you have to toss it into the trash!

While the fact that ceramic knives keep my vegetables and fruit fresher and prettier is the main reason I love ceramic knives, I also love the fact that they’re lighter than most other knives. This may not be something most people notice all the time – it’s something you definitely notice around the holidays, when you and you’re knife are working at a furious pace!
Many people also list durability and the fact that they’re easier to clean as benefits of ceramic knives.

Why I Love Abundant Chef’s Ceramic Knives
Speaking of durability, Abundant Chef’s Ceramic Knives are made of “an advanced, high-tech zirconium ceramic material. According to thickness comparisons, these ceramic knives are second only to diamonds. Zirconium is extremely hard, wear resistant, and can never rust.”
Talk about durability!
Abundant Chef’s knives are also uncommonly affordable. The set that I was sent, the 9 Piece Ceramic Cutlery Knife and Peeler Set, is only $29. That’s FOUR Ceramic Knives (with adorable “apple cut outs” on their covers!) and a Ceramic-Bladed Vegetable Peeler.
- 6″ Chef
- 5″ Utility
- 4″ Paring
- 3″ Fruit Knife
- One Peeler – Black Handle and White Blade
- 4 Sheaths
I’d pay $29 for just one of the knives.
I’m over the moon in love with these beautiful knives and I highly recommend clicking through and checking them out for yourselves. In addition to ceramic knives, Abundant Chef also has some really great looking cutting boards, a great “in drawer” Bamboo Knife Storage Block, grilling gloves, and cutting board oil.
Everything comes with VERY agreeable price tags.
