12 Days of Christmas: Shenzhen Knife Set (4 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on November 28, 2010 · 1,225 comments

I'm excited to offer another fun 12 Days of Christmas series at Deal Seeking Mom. Each day through 12/7, I'll post a new 3-day giveaway! Browse all of the giveaways here.


I love kitchen gadgets of all kinds, so I was excited to try out the Shenzhen Ceramic Knives after reading about the many benefits that ceramic knives offer over traditional steel knives:

  • Ceramic knives stay sharper longer. They're harder than steel and will hold their edge longer.
  • They will not rust and and are easy to clean.
  • Ceramic knives won't affect the taste of food or cause it to turn brown.
  • They're lightweight, making them easy and comfortable to use.

So what's my verdict? They certainly are every bit as sharp as their website says. My finger can attest to that, LOL. The only drawback I can see? Because ceramic knives are very delicate, they can't be used for more aggressive chopping and deboning, so you will still need to have several steel knives on hand for these tasks.

The good news is that Shenzhen Ceramic Knives are a fantastic price for the quality compared to many other highly recommended ceramic knives. So if you're looking for a good set of ceramic knives at a bargain price, this set fits the bill!


Four Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a 3-piece Shenzhen knife set (chef’s knife, slicing knife and paring knife) and peeler.

To enter, tell me how often you sharpen your knives. Do you just buy them and that's it, or do you bring them in to get sharpened on a yearly basis?

I have never sharpened a knife; that may be the reason why I have to keep buying new ones :)

22 Denese S. November 30, 2010 at 2:08 pm

I never sharpen my knives...

27 Jeanne November 30, 2010 at 2:36 pm

I sharpen my knives about twice per year, although I should probably sharpen the chef's knife more often. I just sharpened them prior to Thanksgiving.

28 Jeanne November 30, 2010 at 2:38 pm

I'd love this! I follow DSM on fb.

29 michelle November 30, 2010 at 2:41 pm

I've never had nice enough knives to need to sharpen them. I actually tried to sharpen my Dollar General knives and messed it up worse! Never try to sharpen DG knives ladies...... it does not work well at all! lol, These knives would be stellar!

30 Tawna November 30, 2010 at 2:45 pm

I have never sharpened my knifes, even though they really need it! These would be great!

31 katie November 30, 2010 at 2:45 pm

My husband sharpens my knives when they start to get dull.

34 Cori Westphal November 30, 2010 at 3:13 pm

I sharpen just whenever I notice they are getting dull. And usually just the knife I'm using at the time. And I just have an electric sharpener that works alright. I'd love these though! And my mom just told me she wants these for Christmas so this would be a fantastic win!
