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

Among many knives, I own this one: Wusthof Classic 8-Inch Cook's Knife It's aptly named 'classic' and I use it every day. Now I can't. A chef's knife's edge must remain convex, so you can rock the blade up and down in a pivot motion to effeciently cut food. Unfortunately, the Presto sharpener does not allow you to insert the knife far enough to sharpen the blade to the edge. As a result you end up with concave gaps on the knife's edge. I went to use my admittedly very newly sharp blade cutting green onions and noticed I was slicing effortlessly, but not all the way through the food. Here's why:
That picture is my Wusthof after sharpening. The heel of the knife is now above the sharpened egde and the resulting gap prevents straight, clean cuts when bringing the handle down on even easily sliced items. I tried again after realizing the issue but still could not get the knife into the machine. I'm headed to a professional sharpener to see if can be repaired.
If your knives do not have a thick heel at the handle end like above, this will not be an issue for you.
Slot 1 is great for taken worn down kitchen knives and making them sharp.
Slot 2 for me is good in theory for honing but not so much in practice.
The instructions states to pull the knife slowly through slot 2 for a duration of 3 to 4 seconds followed by a quick pass for the finishing move.
I found that slot 2's wheel is lose or not properly balanced on the shaft of the spindle leading to mass chattering when honing the knives.
This chattering takes what decent edge slot 1 places on the knife and leaves nothing put chatter bumps all the way down the edge.
I tried several different knife lengths, thick to thinner blades, and slow to fast pulls through slot 2 with the same results.
While the video does not show chattering my most certainly do.
Also this unit does not allow you to sharpen to the manufacturer's edge near the tang of the knife blades. This is not a deal breaker on large knives but on pocket it leaves a little bit to be desired to have a fully sharpened knife edge from tip to tail.
Nice for kitchen use but I won't be running my buck or other hunting knives through this thing for sure.
