Henckels Twin Sharp Duo knife sharpener is suitable for all knives with a fine edge, with the exception of coated knives. The stainless-steel sharpener comprises two modules, which are marked on the sharpener. The first module features steel wheels for coarse sharpening and presharpening, and the second module uses ceramic wheels for fine sharpening and smoothing. This sharpener works well for both right- and left-handed people, features rubber feet so it won't skid on the countertop, and measures approximately 8 inches across and 3 inches tall, so you can store it in a drawer or display it in a small space. To use, place the knife sharpener on a flat surface, pressing down slightly with one hand. Draw the knife blade with a little pressure towards yourself, repeating up to five times for the dullest blades. For very blunt knives, use the first module and then the second. Knives with a bit of bluntness may require only the first module to bring back the original sharpness. Check the results by cutting into a sheet of paper.

they'd be perfect. Love it. Expected More You deserve it. Perfect Gift Ideas!
For neglected knives, you simply draw the knife through the Rough slot a few times with only very slight pressure until you feel no more of the initial "roughness" there, Then you do the same in the Fine slot until it glides smoothly through that also. That's it. My 16 knives took a half minute each and each passed the final "slice the printer paper" test. Once you get them in shape, a couple quick times through the Fine slot returns a razor edge in seconds. Tap it in your trash can or sink occasionally to empty metal particles. No comparison to that timeworn method of stropping them using a round "steel". That said, if your knife blade is really bent over, you'll know it when you pass it through the Rough slot, so that's the time to use your round steel first to reset the edge before then sharpening it. Absolutely not for serrated knives or one-sided blades like santoku's with one edge or scissors, and undesirable for Asian-type knives, which have a sharper 14 degree bevel per side vs. American/German knives with a 20 degree bevel.
I don't think the electrics do anything much different since they have the same slot-with-sharpening-wheels design ... and you still have to pull the knife through the different slots, so they would seem to only add value for high-volume restaurant use sharpening of dozens of knives every day. I.e., why spend a $150 instead of $25, and another counter appliance to do the exact same thing?
