Found 18th Oct 2013
Also had a ceramic peeler for £1.99 and a larger Chef's knife for £9.99.

Really nice quality and come with a blade guard. I've seen these regularly for £10-£15 in stores.

One has to be more careful what things are cut with a ceramic knife. They aren't designed for cutting potatoes , but I use mine for most things like tomatoes, onions etc and have lasted well.

why can't they handle potatoes? anything else they can't handle?

Because they are very brittle cutting through a potato will cause the vibration to shatter it, it's like cutting with a knife made of glass.
The benefits of ceramic is technically that they stay sharp longer than metal blades and don't absorb odours say like from garlic.
They do stand up to some abuse and can cut potatoes especially smaller ones, but just not worth the risk of breaking them.
Worth buying at these prices though, I got my first one from Aldi and it was a paring knife and chopping knife for £15, still going strong probably more than 12 months.

I bought the paring knife, I'm happy with it thanks

Oh yes one more thing, mind your fingers they will draw blood very easily ;-)

Sweet potato, coconut, any hard vegetable. They are amazing to use but use a wooden board never marble or granite.
Yams, turnip sweed etc best avoid cutting with these. Also nerver use them to crush garlic as you would with a steel blade.
Steel flexes ceramic snaps!

Superb cutting edge slices lemons, onions, celery etc...

Like most things right tool for the right job - Defo not for kids if you make a mistake these are not as forgiving as steel. they will slice through anything so TAKE CARE.
