Utilising modern technologies and materials, each piece from this Cuisinart professional knife set is created to ensure they perform consistently at their best. The knife is forged from high quality German stainless steel, individually hand crafted, ground and honed for a razor sharp edge.
It is then ice hardened, meaning the entire blade is extremely strong, requiring less sharpening and improved resistance to stains. Cuisinart knives are ice hardened to improve stain resistance. Ice hardened knives utilise a propriety cryogenic hardening process that improves upon traditional heat treat processes. Unlike surface treatments that can wear away, cryogenics harden to the core by minimising soft metal and creating more hard metal resulting in a product that is more consistently hard throughout. In the process the temperature is reduced down to minus 80°C for 3 hours and then heated to 180°C for 4 hrs.
The ergonomic handle ensures maximum comfort in hand as well as superior usability. These handles are then triple riveted to maximise strength. Keep the blade edge sharp too with a diamond sharpening steel that offers maximum performance for the ultimate in sharp edges. Backed by a lifetime manufacturer's warranty, the Cuisinart professional knife set is certainly a set packed with functionality and usability.Read more
