With its three-stage, high-speed polishing system, this Chefs Choice electric knife sharpener keeps all household blades hair-splitting 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 microflute cutters. Together, these processes combine to create Chefs Choice patented 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 non-skid feet keep it stable in use. It also includes a rocker power switch, durable housing, and a manually activated cleaning/dressing tool to clean the honing disks in stage three. Measuring 9-3/4 by 4 by 4-1/4 inches, the sharpener carries a three-year warranty. --Emily Bedard
