Kyocera Wins Over Italian Chef Scenna with Ceramic Tomato Utility Knife
Summer is here, and with it comes the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables from your garden or the farmer’s market. To me, there’s nothing better than a tomato picked right off the vine. We use them in salads, sauces, sandwiches and salsa. But we’ve learned the hard way that having a good sharp knife to cut fresh tomatoes is essential, or you’ll wind up with a mutilated, pulpy mess.
Kyocera’s micro serrated utility knife is perfect for tomatoes. It’s lightweight with a razor-sharp ceramic blade (made from zirconium oxide) that lets you make clean, precise cuts. It won’t rust, and it’s impervious to acids, oils and salts so it doesn’t alter the taste, smell or appearance of food. Besides tomatoes, Kyocera’s serrated knife is great for slicing any foods with a waxy skin and soft center. For a clean, uniform cut every time, nothing beats it.
“You can use it for so many different fruits and vegetables because it doesn’t discolor [the food] and it won’t give an aftertaste,” says Teresa Scenna, an expert in Italian cooking who tested Kyocera’s knife for Daily Grommet. Those of us who were in the office that day hit the culinary jackpot — we got to enjoy Teresa’s superb insalata caprese. Buon appetito!
