I received this set last Christmas from my husband. The price is outstanding for the number of knives and the cutting board is a nice plus. Now it's April, so for three months these have been my go to knives. Outstanding. I can slice very thin and the cutting board is really nice to have. Peeler is great too. I don't use conventional knives anymore, just these. I've bought two more of this set to give as Christmas gifts this December. Buy this, you won't be sorry. But watch it, these knives are sharp and it's easy to cut yourself.

Cuisinart 8 Piece Ceramic Knife Kitchen Prep Set with Cutting Board - Red

I received these knives as a gift from my wife. I do a heavy amount of cooking and have drawers full of knives. This set has replaced all of my favorite ones leaving no comparisons. They are unreal-sharp, and slice through anything with ease. They seem to be much more sturdy than your typical ceramic knife, but I like them so much I am not going to put that part to the test. They come with a 5-year warranty, so feel free to test their durability!

Note: These knives are especially effective for cutting meats. It makes cubing/slicing chicken breast, pork, or beef a much more simple task than it has ever been. You literally only need the weight of your hand to make cuts, no extra force necessary. ENJOY!

These knives are awesome! I thought we had nice knives before but these knives far exceeded my expectations. I plan to buy several sets for Christmas

Although they cut well through soft veggies, etc, they are definitely not made for steaks, or other hard items and the handles are too wide for my medium sized hands to hold easily. Unable to use the smaller one for paring, only for dicing, etc. Wouldn't recommend them

I bought these knives because I recognized the Cuisinart name and assumed they would be of high quality. The middle sized knife broke at the junction of the blade and handle on the first use. To date the recipient has had no luck gluing it back together. I am particularly disappointed since I gave these knives as a gift.

To be fair, I must say that I own a very good brand of carbon steel knives that I have used for years, keep well honed and which can still cut a clean slice through a single sheet of paper. As well, I have been cooking for about 40 years and am considered to be an accomplished home chef.

For a while I have been curious about ceramic knives but didn't want to invest just to find out how they compared to good quality steel blades. I decided to check out this set ($30 at a local "warehouse" retailer) since the cost was so low. The feel, grip and balance of each of the knives was excellent. I especially liked the fact that each knife came with its own "scabbard" to protect the knife and (no doubt) its users.

I first tried the Santoku knife slicing various vegetables. Not nearly as effortless as my steel knives. Slicing carrots took 2-3 times the effort of my current santoku, onions and apples about twice the effort. Slicing celery with the utility knife gave the same results (it did, tho', make very clean cuts through a soft bundt cake).

My recipe also called for my apples to be peeled. Now I have used the same peeler (a well known brand with a stainless steel edge. I don't know about you, but I peel in two directions. Doing apples, I turn the fruit away from me with my left hand while holding the peeler's edge towards me so the continuous apple skin coils away from me. Potatoes I tend to peel opposite my body so peeling fall away from me. I can do this as my peeler has an cutting edge on either side allowing me to peel in either direction.

The peeler included in this set had a cutting edge on only one side that let my peel only away from my body. To peel apples as most people do, I had to remove the swivel blade and reverse it to get the single cutting edge to peel towards me. Again, the peeler took twice the effort of my 8-year old stainless steel peeler. The paring knife, on the other hand, worked great in the same task and felt great in my hand. Very happy with this one knife.

The Cuisinart package claims their ceramic knives are sharper (than what?), stronger (than what?) and more durable (again; than what?). I suppose that if one has old and dull knives, these would seem a Godsend; otherwise, no. Add to this the fact that ceramic knives require specialized (and not inexpensive) sharpeners, and I cannot see the allure.

I have a friend who is setting up a new household and needs all sorts of kitchen tools. As I will not be using these again, I think he'll be happy for the gift. I'm just glad that I didn't spend big dollars to learn about what I believe is an inferior product. I recommend that you put your money into a few similar Wusthoff carbon-steel knives to last a lifetime.

I gave this set to my 35-year old son who loves to cook. He is really enjoying them for vegetables. I just have one which I also use for vegetables and I love mine.

I have one Kyocera ceramic knife but it is a bit too large for some of the uses I have (very wide blade) but I couldn't bring myself to spend that much for another one so I decided to try these out. They are all pretty good. I find I use the paring knife and the medium sized one the most (the large one is fine, but more like my Kyocera. The blade covers are useful as these don't fit well in my knife block. The knives cut great and clean easily.
