Slice Tools: High Fashion. High Minded.


By Cari Martens

Can a kitchen cutting tool make a fashion statement?

Slice apparently thinks so. Slice is the name of a company that makes sharp ceramic cutting tools for kitchen and office—and these tools truly are sharp in both senses of the word. The kitchen tools include a veggie peeler, a y-cutter and a grater, and they are probably unlike any other slicing tools you have in your drawer today.

The implements were all designed by Karim Rashid, a well-known designer in the fields of product, interior and furniture design. His work has been exhibited at major museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

All Slice cutting tools are made with a high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide. According to Slice, it’s the one of the most durable substance on Earth, second only to diamonds. The ceramic blade won’t rust or brown foods.

The peelers, cutters and other Slice tools are designed for safety as well as aesthetics.

Purchase Benefits Autism Research

One more thing that makes a Slice tool cool: a portion of all sales helps fund autism research. Each purchase helps find a cure for the millions of children and their families who live with autism every day.

Slice products are available at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Linens N’ Things and other retailers nationwide.
