Kyocera makes a razor sharp line of ceramic kitchen utensils and knives that, only second in hardness to diamonds, retain their sharpness up to ten times longer than stainless and high-carbon steel blades. They never corrode, rust or transfer metallic flavors to foods. If you're not ready to invest in a new set of knives, consider one of the new eye-popping utensils such as the Wide Julienne Slicer, which will produce perfect string cuts. We also love the Ceramic Mega Peeler, which is great for peeling large and difficult-to-peel fruits and vegetables like squash and melons and can also be used for shaving chocolate or parmesan cheese. Both products are dishwasher-safe.
