The Presto electric knife sharpener provides an easy, automatic way to sharpen most non-serrated kitchen and sport knives to a razor sharp edge. With a special two stage system, it precision grinds a perfect sharpening angle, then fine hones and polishes the edge for professional results at home, anytime. 120 volts AC
All kitchen and sporting knives, whether professional quality or inexpensive, need a blade tune-up now and then. This electric sharpener produces razor-sharp edges using the same rapidly rotating Sapphirite grinding wheels used by professional shops. A two-stage system allows knives to be ground and sharpened on the Stage 1 half of the machine, and then honed on the Stage 2 half. Blade guides hold the knife at the ideal sharpening angle for each side of the blade, as it is drawn slowly towards the user and kept parallel to the countertop. The sharpener is suitable for knives made of alloy, carbon, or stainless steel; it is perfectly normal for sparks to fly when knives of high carbon steel come in contact with the Sapphirite wheels. Non-electric serrated knives that are only serrated on one side can also be sharpened with this machine. Three suction cups on the bottom hold the sharpener securely on a table or countertop, and two receptacles underneath catch metal filings for disposal. The sharpener measures 8-1/4 by 5-3/4 by 4 inches, and is covered by a 1-year limited warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri
Top customer reviews
Stage 1 & Stage 2: Both sides are the same stone, one with a slightly less steep angle. Real sharpening maintains the same angle throughout the sharpening process, but using different kinds of stones.
Shaky Slots: From the picture, it looks like the slots have nice firm edges to press your knife against and keep it steady while sharpening. But the slots actually stop 1/2" short of the wheel. This means your knife is free to rotate to any angle inside the sharpener.
"Too Fast:" This sharpener grinds the blades far too fast to give you a nice edge. It's like using 50 grit sandpaper - it works fast, but it will always be very crude.
I don't believe for a second all the top reviews that claim to be culinary pros swearing by this device. Now that I have this in my hands, all those reviews are VERY suspect. I'm giving this 2 stars because it's OK for people (like me) who had a very old set of already "ruined" knives (Chicago Cutlery, 10 years old). But I would never, ever put a nice knife in this monster. In other words, if one of your knifes costs more than this thing, run away!
