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. That’s her on the right with her daughter Connie. 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!
