Top Customer Reviews
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 I love the size and shape of a santoku, but it had gotten dull and was superceded by a Kasumi chef's knife I received as a gift.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.Read more ›
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 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.Read more ›
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.
