PRO's: Not all that noisy, even when drawing a knife across / If you follow the directions, recommendations, sharpens very well
CONs: Does not use oil or water to help with the sharpening and leaves a "rough" blade (Still sharp, so be careful) / Because it's a dry system, will leave dust from the wheels and the knife blades / Did NOT secure very well to my counter surface, so I had to also hold the machine while I was drawing the blade during sharpening / The sharpening angles won't work if you don't pay attention to what you're doing, and you can damage a blade if you put too much pressure (Or any at all, actually) when drawing the blade across during sharpening
Last Thoughts: I've experimented with this a little; I used a damp cloth with water to "moisten" the blades prior to sharpening; seemed to work ok, but still a good deal of dust. Also tried some sharpening oil on a cloth to wipe on the blades prior to sharpening in the Presto: I noticed less dust and no realy discernible difference in the blade sharpness, but did notice that the blades weren't so "rough" after sharpening with the oil, and also, using the oil, there was a little less dust.
I had knives that were completely dull, useless, you couldn't cut yourself with them if you tried. Ran it through all stages like three times and it worked very well. Like another reviewer posted, you now have a noticeable dip from the heel, it easily removed like 1-2 mm of blade width. The first stage does this.
I had other knives that were dull but not completely useless, ran them through the 2nd and 3rd stage and they are back with no noticeable dip. Very nice.
Now, this works and i will likely use it with some regularity, using a water stone is just a pain, plus if you haven't done it several times before and learned, you'll probably ruin the edge of a couple of knives. I got pretty good at it, but it is just a pain. That said, you will not get that nice polished edge from this grinder, but you can grind a knife in 2 minute versus 10-15 on a stone + 20 minutes pre-soaking a dried stone; + several hours learning if you've never used a stone.. so yeah, this works, its easy, its not messy, and the blade gets reasonably quite sharp,
Could the edge be sharper? yes, but this works.
The closure setting won't stay and is too large even on the smallest setting. I have a Chef's Choice sharpener and this is not even close to the same. The worst part is the final wheel, it should be a strop like soft material but it is a hard grinding, non sharpening wheel like the first 2.
DO NO BUY THIS PRODUCT, GO GET A CHEF'S CHOICE FOR QUALITY.
Which is why I tested it. My dad has one and he said not to use the sharpener on the far left because that’s for chipped or damaged knives to restore it. He said it takes a lot off of the knife. If that’s true I ended up having to use that part because my knives were so dull that running it through the second grinder alone 3-4 times wasn’t going to cut it.
It worked after while but I’m not sure if it’s the quality of my knife set or if it’s the quality of the item.

This Presto unit just arrived so I got out my cleaver, chef's knives, paring knives and even my father's old pocket knife. The results have been uniformly fantastic. Now I need to warn people using my kitchen that my knives are damn near surgically sharp!
Tips: Use a light touch and smoothly draw the blade through while angled tight against the guide. You can do this best by eye-balling the sharpener and blade from directly above. Any steel "dust" created during sharpening can be easily cleaned up by wrapping a magnet in a tissue and passing this over any accumulation. Don't want that stuff in your food. As a final step, because I'm particular, I ran my freshly sharpened blades through the final "finishing" slot on my manual sharpener.
Don't tell my neighbours I have a Presto please...
Stay away from those cheaper 1 or 2 slotted versions of this sharpener - buy this one. Can't go wrong!!!!!
