Suddenly ubiquitous, ceramic technology is upgrading our home-product repertoire. With a surface (almost) as hard as diamond but as smooth as silk, ceramic lasts longer than plastic and metal and achieves unprecedented results: Instruments made with ceramic won’t rust or corrode, and ceramic knives won’t leave a metallic taste on food. Even better, the blades rarely need sharpening — they maintain their edge for months, even years. Ceramic hair products act  like Teflon, emitting reflectives, which smooth and shine hair. Ceramic also withstands high temperatures and ensures that products don’t burn out before their time. And when used in an innovative design, such as for the ball of a fountain pen, ceramic introduces a new standard for age-old objects.
