Ceramic cutlery is becoming very popular in kitchens across the country. A ceramic knife is a knife made out of a high-tech ceramic called "zirconia," a material second in hardness only to diamond. This hardness translates into an edge that won't roll or pit like a steel edge. Ceramic knives hold their edge up to 10 times longer than conventional steel blades. Ceramic is also pure, ceramic blades will never rust and doesn't react with acidic or other foods. This also makes the knife very easy to clean.
