I have been researching alternatives for flatware and cutware to avoid metal ones. For flatware I am looking for sturdy non-disposable plastic ones. Can anyone recommend a good specialized brand ?
For cutware, I have looked at Kyocera`s ceramic knives which are used by chef Ming Tsai, but then I saw that they are made of:
We utilize zirconium oxide, aluminum oxide, and other advanced ceramics to create products which combine elegance and strength. Ceramic products are perfect for general applications requiring superior edge retention or wear resistance. They are also ideal for special applications requiring chemically inert, non-magnetic, non-conductive, or non-contaminating materials.
Are these ceramic knives safe? My common sense tells me no, as Dr. Clark tells us to avoid aluminum and zirconium... If they are inert, then they would be ideal as alternatives to stainless stell chef knives...
