I've had ceramic knives from Aldi before, and they're great. I've bought quite expensive knives before, but never managed to keep a good edge on them. The ceramic ones, however, seem as sharp now as when I bought them. Recommended. Do keep them away from kids, and make sure they have the covers on if you keep them in a drawer.

Just been using some of the aldi ceramic knives this evening. Great everyday knife and a good price. Just be careful not to drop them as you will knock chunks off or shatter them.

I got these from Argos.

£9.99 Jamie Oliver.

But they're not even ceramic, big difference

In case anyone thinks they could get these through security scanners, don't, they have metal embedded in the handles so they can be detected.

Just saying.

If you've got £500 worth of Global knives, and the tools and ability to keep them sharp, you definitely don't need these. For anyone with £12.99 rather than several hundred pounds, these are a good alternative. You can also put them in the dishwasher, which Global say you should never do with theirs.

True, but I bought the Global set 5 odd years ago. Sharpen it once with a whetstone once every couple of months. Never regretted the purchase. Buying a 13 quid knife set will only last a short while before it's all but unusable. I had many many sets of cheap knives. You do get what you pay for.

Also yes, wouldn't dream of putting my knives in a dishwasher. Clean dry and re-rack immediately after use.

Are you a gangster? What idiot would care for such information?

I bought Global back in 2004 for just over £100 and they are still as sharp as the day I bought them.Yes I do use them at weekends only and have only had to sharpen them a couple of times. Best knives I have owned.:)

They are better than those ceramic things.

Ceramic ones? I do agree that cheap steel knifes are a false economy. I couldn't stretch to Global, but I spent nearly £200 on a "good" set of German knives, but it's always the Aldi ceramic ones I reach for now.

To be honest no, I've never owned nor used ceramic knives. Only steel. How do you sharpen them?

Says Who? Have you tried Them?

For info, I've had a few sets of cheap knives and decided to try ceramic, before spending a shed load of cash and not liking, I got a cheap (just over a tenner for a large chef knife) Chinese one from amazon. Blew away any other knife I've ever tried by a mile. I now have a full set of Kyocera ceramics that have made a massive difference.

Even if you don't like ceramic which you're entitled to, still doesn't mean you can compare a cheap steel knife to what is being offered here.

hmmm might try these as my Tesco ones are constantly blunt now after 6 years although not a bad outlay for 6 years of use.

so how are you supposed to dispose of old knives anyway?

also don't have an aldi near me so if I'm not happy with them any idea how aldi are with returns? thanks

I'm only posting so I can see the deal on my front page, so on Thursday I hopefully wont forget to pop over to Aldi

This site really brings out the idiots some times.

Each thread decends into a **** contest.

"These are crap, mine cost £500. If you can't afford that you're not as good as me or you don't like cutting things as much as me"

Get a grip (preferably a non-slip, dishwasher safe one)!

Ceramic knives are much better then the steel. However, I just wonder if it is fragile or not?

I bet they glide effortlessly through your Turkey twizzlers....

Damn I bought an electric blade sharpener from Aldi. Damn you Aldi!

"A ceramic knife is a knife made out of very hard and tough ceramic, often zirconium dioxide. These knives are usually produced by dry pressing zirconia powder and firing them through solid-state sintering"

You learn something everyday.

Ceramic versus Stainless comparison >

Just ignore the BS pseudo science about ion transfer.

Hmm not sure about ceramic knives after watching that, I can't be bothered to not put it in a dishwasher, not put it next to other knives, not wiggle it, and chunks coming out of the blade etc

Even though it says no need to sharpen, that's not exactly true >

As usual, they must be so bad being so cheap!

Only Aldi products are often well made and of good quality.

Not everyone has the money to spend £500 on a set of knives.

Heat.

Are these sharp enough to **** the film on a a ready meal?

Well that video doesn't do much for ceramic. He has to hack through that apple.

These Ceramic knives are great as long as you care for them but they are very hard to get properly sharp, and no they aren't properly sharp when you get them, but once they are sharp they stay that way unless abused.

FREEZIN WOLF I have to agree with your comment on that one.

I was thinking the same thing myself! It's not like an apple is exactly tough to cut either.

I wouldn't pay much attention to that video. "Ion transfer"? Complete rubbish, The reason the apple cut with the steel knife oxidises faster is because the cut is rougher, making more surface area for oxygen to reach. The sharper the knife (steel or ceramic), the slower the surface will oxidise.

Mine were sharp out of the box. Perhaps not as sharp as an expensive steel blade carefully and recently sharpened by an expert, but very sharp by any everyday definition of the word. And they go in the dishwasher and stay sharp.

At the end of the day, they're just over four quid each. No, they won't last forever. In two years time, you might want to replace them. It'll probably cost less than buying a sharpening tool for a steel knife.

My knives were made by Hattori Hanzō from the Kill Bill movie, and cost a million quid. He says global are 'pants'.

What a pointless comment. Like coming to a Dacia car deal suggesting their Porsche is better.

Anyway - I picked up the single Ceramics they had on offer 4-5 years ago (They were around 7.99 each I think) - Excellent quality and are still used to this day. Cant recommend them enough. Just watch your fingers..

Even if your claims were true, which I doubt. Its a sad state of affairs when you have to boast about your expensive purchases to complete strangers on an internet forum. Try going to a bar and flashing your cash in front of some super-classy bird, you might find something better to do with your time.
