This electric knife sharpener gives your knives incredibly sharp, longer-lasting blades. It is designed to sharpen kitchen and most sports knives and will sharpen alloy, carbon or stainless steel blades.
Do not attempt to sharpen scissors, serrated electric knives or any blade that does not fit freely into the blade guide.
The sharpener WILL NOT sharpen electric serrated knives or knives serrated on both sides. It can, however, be used to sharpen single-sided serrated knives using the slots in stage 2, however over a long period of time the serration may be removed, leaving you with a blade similar to that of a utility knife.

Warning: Do not run your fingers over the blade of a sharpened knife – this could cause injury.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought one of these two years ago and it is the best knife sharpener I've used. Have previously used steels but not quite got the knack and they wear down, bought other expensive sharpening systems but results were terribly disappointing. This electric one sharpens perfectly without any effort or expertise. I definitely recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined two good quality knives. Despite three sucker feet which were moistened as directed, the unit vibrated and moved about on the worktop. It was not possible to use this sharpener without holding it down meaning that fingers were near the blade. Even light pressure stopped the machine. However I positioned knives in the first slot and however much or little pressure I used, the knife blades bounced about causing metal to be removed without sharpening. The sharpening wheels did not appear to turn particularly quickly. I may have purchased a faulty sharpener or they may all have the problems outlined above, I am not prepared to take a chance with my fingers or knives and am returning the sharpener for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too big for the average kitchen I bought 3 of these, one for me and one for each of my children for xmas present. Unfortunately I did not use mine until after xmas and what a disappointment. The knife guides are not adequate, especially the right hand slots, so it is difficult to control the movement of the knife as it passes over the grinding/honing wheels, for smaller paring knives it's not possible to easily sharper so don't bother. Also the knife 'bounces' across the honing wheel resulting in very poor sharpening. Would not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine I've owned and used one regularly for approx 4 years. Best thing I've ever bought, had steels which I couldn't get the hang off and other knife sharpening machines that were useless but this machine has never let me down. Never needed to secure it to work surface. Highly recommend.
