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 sharpen my knives only haphazardly, whenever it seems like it really isn't cutting right. But many of my knives are simply not sharp enough. I would love to try the Shenzhen ceramic knives. I have heard that they are wonderful. Thanks for a great giveaway.

I buy cheap knives and never sharpen them. They get dull and they get tossed

I have a small, handheld knife sharpener that I use for my knives. It's not the best thing for them, but it's better than a dull knife.

My husband sharpens our knives pretty much every 3 months like clock work. He seems to enjoy it. It's just about the only task that doesn't involve a power tool that I don't have to hassle him about doing.

50 Frugal Science Gal December 1, 2010 at 3:18 am

We have never sharpened ours...:-(
