Product Description

This professional electric knife sharpener is another sharpening breakthrough. It incorporates conical 100 percent diamond-coated disks in stages 1 and 2 and a revolutionary stropping and polishing disk in stage 3. In just seconds, an edge of unprecedented sharpness and durability is obtained on fine-edge (straight-edge) and serrated knives. The flawless, highly polished fine edge can be customized to suit the cutting task. High-precision, elastomeric angle guides eliminate all guesswork. Three-year limited warranty. Made in the U.S.

With its three-stage, high-speed polishing system, this Chef's Choice electric knife sharpener keeps all household blades hairsplitting sharp, honed, and polished. The machine quickly sharpens gourmet kitchen knives, butcher knives and cleavers, hunting and sporting knives--it even sharpens serrated knives. Using 100 percent diamond abrasives of differing grit, the sharpener creates two blade facets in the first two stages. The third stage strops and polishes, completing the sharpening with a micro bevel and micro-flute cutters. Together, these processes combine to create the patented Chef’s Choice Trizor-Plus edge.

A compact unit, the sharpener features three separate sharpening platforms with left and right slots and internal springs to guide knives securely. The weighted base and nonskid feet keep it stable when in use. The sharpener also includes a rocker power switch, durable housing, and a manually activated cleaning and dressing tool to clean the honing disks in stage 3. Measuring 9-3/4 inches by 4 inches by 4-1/4 inches, the sharpener carries a three-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

    I was very suspicious of this guy, but having actually used it I can only recommend it.

    We've had one in my house for quite some time. My mother bought it because she is not interested in learning the ins and outs of knife maintenance and read several great reviews of the 120.

    I was suspicious, mainly from bad experience with cheezy knife sharpening gadgets, but also because my mom's knives, which had been through the Chef's Choice, always had crappy edges. I had made something of a habit of looking sideways at the Chef's Choice 120 on our kitchen counter.

    I finally read one too many good reviews of this product (when I wasn't even looking for them, they just seem to pop up here and there if you read enough about cooking and cutlery), I decided to give it a shot on a Henckel's 5-star Santoku that had lost it's edge. I love the size and shape of a santoku, but it had gotten dull and was superceded by a Kasumi chef's knife I received as a gift. I figured the worst thing that could happen was that a knife I wasn't using would remain unusable.

    First off, I Read The Freakin Manual. Do not underestimate the importance of this step. If I had just bought it based on good reviews and ripped open the box, I might have done this, but since I was already suspicious of it, I read through every word of their instructions. If you don't read the manual, the way you assume it works may be wrong (the big mistake might actually be overusing it). More on that later.

    Next, before I turned it on, I did a few practice pulls with the power off. Get a feel for pulling the knife through smoothly and evenly. Make sure you keep the knife blade properly aligned with the wheel (i.e.

    I have had mine for 3 months and it's greatest item I've bought. I sharpened old knives that I had put in the back of drawers becuase they were so dull from other hand sharpeners.
    Now, it brought to life all my knives and even the serrated knives and the cleaver. My husband is a charter captain, he fillets large salmon and trout that his customers caught He uses the electric serrated knife and had been sending them in to be sharpen, but found buying new blades was cheaper. So, I gave it a try and sharpened 3 sets that were dull. He's amazed how well it cuts now. Use the last slot for serrated edges.

    I currently own the professional Chef's Choice model (which I highly recommend, by the way), but previously used this model made for home kitchens (don't let the word "professional" in Amazon's description of this model's title fool you--it's just a gimmick, there is a real professional quality Chef's Choice electric sharpener).
    I purchased a Chef's Choice after reading good things about this electric sharpener in "Cooks Illustrated" magazine. It definitely made a world of difference. I was starting with good knifes--Wustof Trident and Henckels--which may have something to do with my success, but the Chef's Choice really does make home sharpening possible, and easy, in my experience. When a knife seems dulls I run it through the whole sharpening process (once every 4-6 months with a high quality knife that gets a fair amount of use), but to keep my knives constantly razor sharp--which is what I really love about the Chef's Choice--I just run them through the second stage a few times as soon as they're washed. That way they're always ready to use.
    My only negatives would be ... 1) That I've had no luck sharpening serrated knives (like a bread knife), which the Chef's Choice claims is can do. Because serrated knives hold their edge a LOT longer than other knives, this isn't a major concern for me. To sharpen your serrated knives I suggest taking them to a professional--look under "knife sharpening" or "cutlery" in the yellow pages. It only needs to be done once a year or so and most will do it while you wait for around $3-$5 per knife. 2) My second caveat for the chef's choice is that the "third" stage on this model has little or no effect as far as I can tell.

    I have had this model for some time now, and it has preformed without flaw. This particular model (#120) was highly rated in the last issue of Fine Cooking. There is very little metal loss and the edge is far better than a factory one. I think so much of this that I am buying another one for a birthday gift. You will not be disappointed.

    I have several nice Sabatier kitchen knives that were dull from years of use and abuse. I tried a manual ceramic disc sharpener from Wusthof but only managed to completely destroy the edge on one of the knives. There are several pages on the internet which have good discussions on knife sharpening. Many of the pages mentioned the Chefs Choice sharpener (note most of them mention the 110 or the professional model). Since I felt that I would not be able to use a whetstone or one of the angled rod systems I went for this sharpener.
    After practicing on a couple of "junk" knives, I used the sharpener on my Sabatier knives. Since my Sabatier knives were extremely dull, I used all 3 stages. After a few test cuts, I concluded that my Sabatier knives were at least as sharp as my brand new F. Dick knives. I also ran my serrated Sabatier steak knives through stage 3. As with other reviewers, I'm not sure whether there was any improvement or not.
    To sum it up, the Chefs Choice Edge Select 120 is easy to use and allows an average person to put a very sharp edge on a straight edge knife. I would recommend that you practice with some knives that you don't care about first. You need to pull the knife slowly and smoothly through the sharpener to get good results. I definitely saw my results improve as I progressed through my knife collection.
