This is a superb knife sharpener - Cooks Magazine rated the Chefs Choice absolutely the best electric model. It puts the kind of edge on your old knives that makes you realize you'd forgotten the true meaning of "sharp".
There's only one flaw in their basic model, though. If your knives have gotten very dull, or you want to be a hero once in a while and put a better-than-new edge on a friend's knives, buy the model 110 instead. That model adds a heavier "grinder" blade (seen on the far left of sharpener in the picture) that can take off more metal quicly while creating the basic, third bevel on their "trizor" edge. Once you have that 3-beveled edge, touch-ups with the lighter grinding wheels seem to keep the knife sharp indefinitely.
You never need this more than once for all but the most neglected knife, but when you do it's nice to have. I've used it to sharpen a cheap fish fileting knife we bought while camping that turned out to be so thick and dull you could barely cut cheese. Now you could shave with it...
It gives an acceptable edge as long as you use it according to directions. It is convenient, as it can sit on your counter or be pulled out of the cupboard in a jiffy. So you tend to keep your knives sharp. The problem with hand sharpening is that it is finicky work that takes time. This is faster and easier, so you tend to do it oftener.
A sharp knife is actually a safer knife as it cuts easily. If you force a dull knife, it can slip and make a nasty cut. (The worst cut I ever saw was with a knife too dull to cut wax. It had no edge, but made a nasty, torn gash. The user was forcing the dull edge through wax and got injured.) So keep your knives sharp and in a block and use them with respect. This sharpener will certainly help you do that.
If you like sharp knives and either do not have the skill or the time to do it by hand get yourself one of these.
The difference after being sharpened on the 310 was very significant. The test was slicing tomatoes thinly and they all worked much better than before.
Operation is simple. Felt slightly awkward on the 1st knife, but you get the feel of it pretty quickly, and once you do, the process goes very smoothly.
With a product like this, who needs to spend a fortune on knives? Some time ago I bought a KitchenAid santoku knife at Walmart for ... I'm going to say ... $15. First use was a disappointment and it's been sitting idle since. Ran it through the 310 and now it's a winner ...
I read a post here saying the sharpener was loud and sounded like the bearings were loose. I bought my girlfriend one and the same thing happened. I knew it was not right because mine ran smooth I just returned it and got a new one.
