Product Description

Product Description

Chef's Choice SteePro 470

Amazon.com

Many owners of fine knives are intimidated by home sharpening with a steel. The SteelPro takes the guesswork and intimidation out of sharpening, yet still uses the preferred steel method instead of abrasives to create a super-sharp edge. By drawing a blade alternately through one slot then another in the SteelPro approximately ten times, the edge develops micro-serrations that cut food exceptionally well. The guides maintain an angle of approximately 23 degrees. Professional sharpening will still be required periodically in the life of a high-quality knife.

Clever design features make this device a pleasure to use. Using a coin, the tops of the two miniature steels can be loosened and the steels rotated when a fresh surface is required. However, the steel is so hard that several thousand strokes are needed to dull it even slightly. The sure-grip handle is comfortable for either left- or right-handed users, and a ring allows the sharpener to be hung. The glossy, chrome-look base is actually a durable plastic but looks smart in the modern kitchen and stays put during use thanks to small rubber feet. Not for use with scissors, serrated knives, or ceramic knives, the SteelPro is covered by a one-year warranty and measures 7 by 2 by 2-3/4 inches. --Ann Bieri

Great tool for everyday use.

It's a good sharpener, but too noisy and too inconvenient to use frequently.

So after reading the one other review of this product I felt compelled to defend this little gadget.A Sharpening steel of course doesn't actually sharpen a knife.Rather it realigns the steel to the proper angle.Traditional sharpening steels require you to hold your knife at an approximately 22% angle and stroke down the steel.Then alternating sides each time maintaining the exact same angle.How many non professional people can hold this exact angle?This gadget helps the non pro get a perfect steeling through the use of angled channels in the device.Simply put you cant screw it up.I would agree the steelpro is not built like a tank but then again I'm not using it as a hammer.I did take off one star for cosmetic reasons.As you draw the knife out of the steelpro it's quite easy to mar the finish.

My husband and I have been very happy with this sharpener, which we've used for more about a year now. If you've let your knives go and they're quite dull, this SteelPro is NOT what you need. Get your knives sharpened, and then use the SteelPro to keep them that way...that's how a sharpening steel is meant to be used. I do have a Chef's Choice power sharpening station. It's a good sharpener, but too noisy and too inconvenient to use frequently. We use the SteelPro almost every time we use a cooking knife; we keep it right next to the knife rack, and give each blade a few strokes on each side before cutting or chopping. Since we started doing this, the knives have been in daily use and have stayed sharp. We do take good care of our knives, using appropriate cutting surfaces and storing them on a magnetic bar so they don't get dinged.

This is a terrific steel, very foolproof. I use this regularly on my chef knife that gets constant use, and it dramatically reduces the time between sharpens. For the money this item is tough to beat.

I can't really understand why another reviewer would call this item dangerous, while the device itself is lightweight, with firm pressure applied with one hand while straightening the knife with the other, I can't imagine a much safer process. This tool also grips my kitchen counters just fine.

I bought this item on-line and received it today and, of course, had to rip open the package and try it right away. First, I used it on my "1 Star" Henckels 4" paring knife. After the recommended number of strokes, I looked at and felt the edge and was very impressed; it was just what I hoped for. I have had this knife for about a year, and it has never been sharpened, so I was very pleased that a "steeling" product worked so well on it. The knife had a really nice "bite" and cut cleanly into a piece of paper. However, my "2 star" Henckels French Chef's knife was just too far "gone" for the steel to work and I will have to have it professionally sharpened, as I don't own a whetstone.

I am a graduate of one of the best culinary schools in the country, and have great "knife skills" in general, but have never really been able to use a steel well. I think perhaps it is because of my height, 5'3" and the length of my arms making it hard to hold the knife and steel far enough away from my body to make it feel safe, and effective, at the same time. Hope that makes sense!

Due to the number of times that I have had to have my Henckels French knife sharpened, I have become a recent convert to Cutco knives, and after much research, bought this instead of a knife sharpener because Cutco knives keep their edges for years and really just need to be steeled at home. (And no, I don't work for Cutco!) I am really looking forward to using this with my Cutco knives.

Just as a previous reviewer, I only gave this a 4 star rating, because of its "cheesy" plastic housing; I realized after I bought it that there is a heavier steel model available for approximately $20 more. I probably should have bought that one, but this one is just fine for the price I paid.

A professional knife guy from a renowned kitchen store sharpened our knives months ago and recommended we switch to this instead of the traditional steel that I was using due to the angle this product keeps your knife at while honing. Quality product at a decent price- I've used the classic steel and the Wusthoff brand that is similar but doesn't keep the knife at the 23 degree angle. I noticed an immediate difference after honing a couple of my Wusthoff Classic knives with this thing vice my traditional steel or the Wusthoff brand. This thing honed them faster than the other two and they certainly seemed sharper (although I know this doesn't sharpen). I recommend this to everybody who is looking for a honing instrument that gives great results.
