Product Description

The horizontal Ceramic Peeler utilizes the same ceramic blade technology as our knives. It is delicate enough to peel a tomato skin, but also sharp enough to cleanly peel a potato. The lightweight design and ergonomic, easy-grip handle makes it a pleasure to use.

THE CERAMIC ADVANTAGE Imagine paper thin tomato slices or perfectly diced onions, Shenzhen Knives ceramic blades give you precision slicing every time due to ceramic’s special material properties. The blade is made of an advanced ceramic called zirconium oxide that is much harder than steel, and second in hardness to only diamond.

Ceramic blanks are produced by dry pressing zirconia powder and subjecting the blanks through an advanced heating process called, sintering. The ceramic blanks are then sharpened and honed to a razor sharp edge and attached to the knife handle. This results in an extremely hard blade that maintains its edge approximately 10-15 times longer than steel blades. That means your ceramic blades can be used longer without going dull.

Ceramic is also non-reactive, which means ceramic blades will not rust and are easy to clean. Because of their resistance to strong oils and acids, they won’t absorb flavors or odors from foods; which won’t leave any after-taste residue on foods that you slice. It also keeps fruit and vegetables from browning as quickly.

THE SHENZHEN KNIVES ADVANTAGE Shenzhen Knives is the leading online brand of ceramic knives and ceramic blade utensils. As a result of our e-commerce only sales model, we can make high performance ceramic technology available to everyone. Even though ceramic blade technology was first introduced over 25 years ago, the price has not changed much, even with improvements in ceramic technology and manufacturing. We soon realized that there were so many layers of marketing and distribution. At Shenzhen Knives we do not spend millions on celebrity chef’s endorsements, and avoid brick and mortar retailers who need to add their huge markup to cover their overhead.

We felt that such a great product –that doesn’t need to be sharpened as often as a steel blade, and knowing the blade won’t rust – should be in everyone's kitchen.

BUY ONE, GIVE ONE While we are in business to make a profit, we also decided to position Shenzhen Knives as a company that would not only sell consumer products to make a profit, but to also do good. When you buy a knife or knife set, we will donate a meal to needy children.

And while our manufacturing costs are still higher than the bigger brands, by relying mainly on our e-commerce model, bypassing distributors and eschewing flashy marketing campaigns, this helps keep our operating costs and prices low. More importantly, this allows us to re-direct some of that savings that would have gone to middlemen or celebrity chefs, to both the consumer and people in need.

OUR PROMISE TO TREAT CUSTOMERS FAIRLY At Shenzhen Knives, we do not have a 100-page customer service policy handbook. Instead, we live by the simple motto of “treat customers how you would like to be treated”. And that is the mandate that guides our interaction with customers.

And while most companies don’t want to point out their mistakes, we invite you to look at some of our negative reviews and see how our customer support measures up to other companies. It’s our belief that customer support doesn’t mean much when you like the product or the product works perfectly. It’s only important when something goes wrong, and the measure of a good company is how they react to dissatisfied customers or mistakes.

And while we strive to have 0% defective rates on our products and 100% satisfaction, we realize that mistakes do happen from time to time, and when that happens, please let us know.

SPREAD THE WORD! Please write a product review to let others know about our product. As a business with a limited ad budget, word-of-mouth marketing is our life blood and our company relies heavily on them. Thank you for your business!

I love to cook but hate peeling vegetables. I heard about ceramic peelers but never tried one. The price was right so thought no harm done if I don't care for it. After using it for a while I can tell you that it actually makes peeling vegetables fun. Even the wife loves it.

A very well-designed, excellent peeler. Found the handle very sturdy in accordance with the general build of the peeler. Made short shrift of all the vegetables and fruits I have been peeling.

Once you have this peeler out of box, it looks cheap, but...once you use it, you feel the perfect work, the perfect peel of potatoes and carrot, and other vegetables. Got new kitchen? tired of steel (and rusted) peelers? get this one for good!

This peeler is of very good quality and very sharp. It peels like a breeze. The handle is made of plastic, but it is sturdy. The only thing I don't like about it is that the peelings are at least two to three times as thick as with other peelers. To determine the waste, I did a simple experiment. Tools used: One Shenzhen Knives Ceramic Peeler, a precision kitchen scale (accuracy +/- 1 gram) and one average sized carrot. To begin, I weighed the carrot. The un-peeled carrot weighed exactly 70 grams. I then peeled the carrot with only one swipe around the length of the carrot. I did not peel twice on any part of the carrot. I then weighed the peeled carrot. Results: Carrot now weighed 47 grams. From 70 grams to 47 grams is a loss of 33%. To me, the waste is excessive and unacceptable (especially if one buys pricey organic produce.) Those who own this peeler know what I'm talking about. If one doesn't mind losing over 1/3 of their produce to waste, then this peeler is the bomb.

Now, lets talk about the Shenzhen Knives company itself. Shenzhen Knives takes a disparaging comment on their products VERY serious. Shortly after my original post, I was contacted by the company (via the comment section), who offered to exchange or refund the peeler. Due to the low price, I did not wish to go to the time and trouble. Leaving no other options to satisfy a customer, the company told me that they had purchased and shipped a competitors ceramic peeler to me. Personally, I was shocked that a company would go the limit to ensure that their customers are happy.

Now, I admit that I have never owned a ceramic peeler until now. Maybe they all peel the same way and thickness. I guess I'll have to wait and see, if and when the new peeler shows up. I'll keep this review updated.

This peeler is surprisingly effective. Great for peeling potatoes, cukes, apples, lemons ... even for shaving cheese. It is dishwasher safe whereas metal peelers would rust, and holds its edge well. This tool makes metal peelers obsolete. A kevlar glove is advised to prevent accidents.

My wife got this as a gift for Christmas and she said it was the best peeler that she had used. Cleans up easy and no worry about rust.

The Shenzhen Peeler, does take some getting used to for a couple of reasons:

1) Horizontal blade. Normally there is a vertical blade in steel peeler, however I actually like the horizontal alighment as it makes it easier to peel potatoes (you don't have to bend your wrist as much or twist the potato)

2) Lightweight. For those who are used to the heavy rubber steel peelers, than this peeler is not for you. But the lightweight design makes it more maneuverable

Not sure what the other reviewers are complaining about when it comes to thick peels. I noticed no difference between my steel peeler and ceramic peeler. It's actually very thin and not at all thick peels, but I think one person was a very picky foodie type (you can't please everyone I guess!) And not sure if the other reviewer was correct in his assertion that 1/3 of the weight was peeled off, as intuitively, 1/3 of the weight is an awful lot of peelings and doesn't make sense to me personally. It might be where they are using too much pressure when they peel, as this peeler is very SHARP, so you can use a light stroke and still get the job done.

The peeler is light and well-made. It took a little bit to get used to the weight, but once I did, it was easy to control. I would recommend this peeler.
