Taking ceramic chips off the menu
24 July 2022
CERAMIC KNIVES may look modern and hygienic, but in fact they are a complete no-no for the food industry.
Why? For a start, they can splinter, creating ultra-sharp shards. Secondly, ceramic shards are undetectable to metal scanners, so will go unnoticed. This type of foreign object debris is as hard to spot as it is lethal.
Chilling isn’t it
When we pointed this out to a food manufacturer during a site survey, they immediately asked us to replace their ceramic knives. We recommended two MARTOR metal detectable knives, to best suit the two very different cutting tasks they have.
For any food manufacturing environment, we apply our super-safe do’s and don’ts to any knife.
