Create an incredibly like-new sharp edge with this electric multi-stage knife sharpener. Safe for use with high-quality knives, the unit can restore a 15-degree edge for Asian-style knives and a 20-degree edge for European- and American-style knives. It can also sharpen fine-edge or serrated blades, sports knives, pocketknives, and Santuko and traditional Japanese-style single-bevel edges, including the thicker Deba-style blades, as well as double-bevel blades. Its three-stage system produces a perfect edge. Precise knife guides automatically position the knife for foolproof operation, while 100-percent diamond abrasives and patented flexible stropping and polishing discs sharpen, hone, and deliver a microscopically polished edge. Other highlights include a simple on/off switch, stabilizing feet, and durable construction. Assembled in the USA, the knife sharpener measures 12 by 6-1/5 by 6-2/5 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty.
When your favorite knives start squishing ripe tomatoes instead of slicing them, it's time to sharpen your blades. This knife sharpener is remarkably easy to use on both straight-edge and serrated knives. Simply plug it in, turn it on, and feed knife blades through the stages. The first sharpening stage uses 100 percent diamond abrasive disks to hone the knife's edge while the second stage incorporates polymer disks to polish and strop the edge to hairsplitting sharpness. Straight-edge knives should go through both stages, while serrated blades should only be used in the polishing stage.
The internal elastomeric spring guides hold knife blades at just the right angle to the sharpening surfaces, making sharpening easy. The instructions are easy to follow, and maintenance is limited to removing the metal dust shavings from the clean-out tray once a year or so; no lubrication is necessary for the motor, bearings, or sharpening surfaces. Guaranteed not to detemper, the sharpener has a two-year warranty for home use. --Ariel Meadow StallingsSee all Product description

There wasn't much of a learning curve. Basically there are two sides, use the left side first, and the right side to finish. The directions are very clear. I turned it on and off when I wasn't using it so it wouldn't overheat. At one point the plastic cover came off on the right side. It was easy to replace, so no problem.
Most of the cheapo knives were able to sharpen up nicely. Some of the dullest, oddest knives didn't seem to sharpen no matter how many times I put them through the sharpener. None were nicked, so that wasn't an issue.
The next week the organization had a large food fair. Their knives were able to bone chicken, slice tomatoes and onions, and other foods very nicely. Nothing is more dangerous than a dull knife, and this sharpener made our knives useful.
After this, I sharpened all my own good knives. It did the job quickly, as my knives were in good shape.
I'm using the sharpener with my Chicago Cutlery 18-piece knife set (http://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Cutlery-18-Piece-Insignia-Sharpener/dp/B0016P3708/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1392396867&sr=1-1&keywords=chicago+cutlery+knife+set), which arrived in a crazy-sharp state. I've never worked with knives this sharp. Anyway, the sharpest knives will lose their edge, and these knives got dull, and I couldn't get them as sharp with the cheesy sharpener that is built in to the knife block.
An aside: Read the instructions! It's funny how superlative they make this puppy sound in the manual, like they're still trying to sell you on the product after you've already bought it. But read the instructions or you will not use this device correctly!
Back to my little story: I sharpened the knives, as per instructions, drawing the knives through slow and smooth and not pressing down too hard. I got the "burl" in the rough side as described, and honed it off on the smooth side, and my knives are dangerously sharp again. Couldn't be happier! There may be better sharpeners out there in the world, I don't know, but this one is more than sufficient, at least compared to the fairly lame sharpening that I could achieve with a hand sharpener. Quality achieved!
After reading the instructions and going through the motions it was easy enough and it did sharpen what were previuosly unusable knives relatively quickly compared to using a manual sharpener my only concern is that the motor did heat up somehwat after doing 4 knives in succession
