Don't first try it out on your favorite knife.
Don't press hard.
Do let the sharpener do the work (that's what you paid for).
Do keep the knife moving (back-to-front), even before you contact the stone.
It was a little noisier in operation than I expected after watching the demo video (search for it), but it's OK. I recommend watching the demo and carefully reading the instruction sheet.
Use some discretion with the first wheel - it is best for deep reshaping of the knife edge, like if your knife has the sharpness of a butter knife after years of slamming the edge into a cutting board. If you only have some small dullness, try just the second wheel (then strop).
Other than that, it does exactly what it says and your knives will be RAZOR sharp. It really did make my Chef's knife, which already seemed sharp, exceptionally sharp. Same thing for my Wusthof steak knives. It is great to have these little knives slice through steak like hot butter, especially with all the abuse they get constantly cutting on people's plates.
It's a bit pricey, but worth it. After all, if you take care of your Wusthof's, you'll probably never have to buy another knife in your lifetime.
That being said there is ONE MAJOR TURNOFF. To those who want to keep their knives looking pristine and shiny, this sharpener WILL cause small lateral scratches on both sides of ANY knife you put through it. My $160 10 inch chefs knife has 20-30 scratches running along the entire side of it. DO NOT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS IT COMES WITH. If you do follow the directions and draw the knife flat through the sharpener, it will scratch the sides the worst. I found out after trial and error with my mothers worn down Henckels Classic set (I didn't want to cause more cosmetic damage to the new Wusthof's) that the knife must be drawn back so it engages the grinding wheels but the handle is kept at a steep angle well below the horizontal grinding plane. This minimizes the contact of the sides of the knives with the grinding wheels and minimizes scratching. Remember to always start near the handle and draw towards you so the tip is the last part to touch the grinding plane.
I really only use the stropping wheels to maintain the edge. Maybe once every other week I run the knives through stage two.
My mother's Henckels knives needed to be ground in stage 1, 2, and 3 and I must say the magnetic insert to catch the metal filings is ingenious.Read more ›
I have tried other sharpening equipment and the Wusthof 3 Stage Electric Knife Sharpener is by far, the easiest and the best.
I've sharpened Wusthof knives as well as several other brands with a full range of hardnesses, all with equal success.
Keep the knife bottomed out in the slot, and follow the directions. It works as described.
The sharpened product is sharp enough to shave the hairs on you arm - it worked for me.
A great bargain for the price.
