So I saw an infomercial for this and I was intrigued! Per usual, I looked up the reviews on amazon to get the real scoop, and to my surprise, they were mostly positive! I REALLY hate cutting with dull knives and now that my kids are helping out in the kitchen, I really need the safety of having sharp knives around (dull ones just make it hard to cut and people tend to cut themselves more!!!) Now, I admittedly do not have the highest quality/costing knives and I know enough that if you spent $200 on a knife, this might not be the best choice to sharpen it. But, if you are like me and have a dozen dull paring knives floating around a drawer, this is a life saver! It does take up a bit of room, but it is easy to use and sharpens a knife to a very usable sharpness in just a few passes. Five stars for me!
This sharpener has taken my cooking to a whole new level. We have had Cutco knives for years and I have been trying to keep them sharp on a traditional stone. Using that method, I'm finding that I don't do it often enough to keep the edge on the knife. When I do sharpen them, the edge is too far gone for the time i have to sharpen them.
I used this sharpener on each of my knives (serrated included) for 10 minutes or less and it made a world of difference. 10 minutes sounds like a long time, but the knives were in horrible condition. Now they're cutting excellently! I'll spend a few minutes here and there with this sharpener because it's so easy and keep my cutlery in tip top shape now!
We do our own butchering. We have a large group of friends who get together, so we use many knives that have to be sharp. This worked great!!!
This knife sharpener is priceless to me. I couldn't find one that seemed to help but this one does the job.
Works OK. Useful
Can�t believe I didn�t buy this sooner. My knives were getting so dull because I�m lazy and put them in the dishwasher. I bought this hoping it would work. And wow was I surprised. Simply passed the knife through here 5-6 times and BAM it was sharper than I could ever imagine. Sharper than the day I bought them new. This is now the most important tool in my kitchen. Don�t hestitate BUY IT NOW
I love it! It�s also a conversation starter when seen on the counter. It sharpens with ease. I haven�t tried a serrated knife yet, because these knives never seem to need sharpening. Just follow the directions (very simple) and never squish a tomatoe again . Being so easy to use ,and on the kitchen counter, I just swipe my knives in it before use and voila....
