Passion Gusto Ceramic Knife Set Review

Passion Gusto Ceramic Knife Set Review

I tried my first ceramic knife two months ago in May, and I was immediately hooked. Until now, I had use only stainless steel knives for chopping fruits, vegetables, and more as I prepared meals for my family. However, I quickly discovered the ceramic knives cut better and remain sharper for longer. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a set of ceramic knives from Passion Gusto in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add to my kitchen cutlery collection.

Price

The Passion Gust ceramic knife set currently retails for $49.95 with a sale price of $29.70 on Amazon. The set comes with four knives in a foam try in a gift box. My other ceramic knife set cost around $20 and came with sheaths for each knife. Other ceramic knife sets cost between $15 and $25. I thus find the price a bit high for the Passion Gusto set. However, the current sale price is much more reasonable for such a high quality set of ceramic knives.

Design

Made with extra strong ceramic and packaged in a deluxe box with magnetic closure, the four-piece premium ceramic knife set from Passion Gusto features rounded tips for increased resistant against breakage. Many ceramic knives are relatively thin and break easily, so Passion Gusto created knives with an extra thick cutting surface run through a complex prolonged burn process that is ten times sharper than conventional stainless steel knives. The ceramic blades also remain sharper for longer compared to metal. Constructed with extra hard ABS plastic, the ergonomic non-slip handle design sits comfortably in the hand. The knives have white blades and black handles. Unlike many ceramic knives, this set of four is dishwasher safe. Passion Gusto offers a 100% money back guarantee within fourteen days of purchase.

Performance

My new set of four ceramic knives from Passion Gusto makes preparing fresh fruits and vegetables for my family super easy. I recently made the switch to ceramic, and, although I do still use my stainless steel knives, I reach for my ceramic ones first. As promised, the Passion Gusto knives are super sharp. I can cut zucchini, tomatoes, plums, carrots, potatoes, and more with ease with the super strong and super durable blades. Unlike my metal knives, these ceramic blades do not dull as quickly. I usually have to sharpen my stainless steel blades every few weeks depending on use. Even after almost four weeks of use, my ceramic knives are still as sharp as brand new. I am therefore highly impressed with the sharpness.

Although sharper than metal, ceramic is more brittle and prone to stains. I personally do not care if my kitchenware becomes stained because I actually use my kitchen to cook for my family and believe that used kitchenware can look used. I wash my Passion Gusto ceramic knives almost immediately after each use, but I have noticed some slight discoloration on the white blades. Tomatoes in particular have left a slight pinkish hue on the smallest knife. The white color will eventually discolor depending on the types of foods you cut, but, again, I honestly do not care if a knife that I regular use shows that I regularly use it. My bigger concern is that I am rather clumsy, and ceramic can chip or shatter if dropped. If I were to drop one of these knives in my kitchen, the blades are sure to shatter on my ceramic tile floor. However, that ceramic is more brittle than metal is not a flaw, simply a fact. With proper care, these knives can last a long time.

I do love that my Passion Gusto knives are dishwasher safe. I have an extra third rack in the top of my dishwasher that works perfectly for these knives. The knives come out sparkling clean at the end of the cycle and do not bounce around at all while lying flat. While I usually hate hand washing dishes, I am also happy to clean these knives in my sink with soap and warm water. As I already mentioned, I almost always immediately wash these knives after use. I use my regular dish detergent and gently wipe down the blades. If you let food dry on the blades, you can use a soft sponge to gently scrub off the residue. I also use a towel to dry the blades after washing but sometimes allow the blades to air dry in my drying rack. I then store the knives in the included box with magnetic closure to protect both the knives and my hands.

Final Verdict

I am extremely impressed with the ceramic knife set from Passion Gusto, which comes with four durable knives packaged in a deluxe box with magnetic closure. The ceramic blades are white, and the extra hard ABS plastic handles are black. The ergonomic non-slip handle design sits comfortably in the hand. Unlike my metal knives, these ceramic blades do not dull as quickly. Even after almost four weeks of heavy daily use, my ceramic knives are still as sharp as brand new. I usually wash my knives immediately after each use, but I have noticed some slight discoloration on the white blades. Tomatoes in particular have left a slight pinkish hue on the smallest knife, but I honestly do not care about the slight discoloration. I do love that these premium blades are dishwasher safe, which makes cleanup a breeze. If you are shopping for new knives, I highly recommend the Passion Gusto ceramic knife set.
