If you’re in the market for an electric knife, this is one of our favorites.
When it comes to our electric knife reviews, the Black & Decker Comfortgrip is the most comfortable one we tested and the least prone to slipping, partially due to the rubberized no-slip strip on top of the handle where your thumb goes.
Loudness: 91 DB, comfortable but still somewhat loud
Bread: easily cut through soft bread and cut through hard breads with only slight pressure
Squash: barely able to slice the squash even with lots of pressure
Hard cheese: no problem
Poultry & meat: did a nice job slicing everything
Bones: took a fair amount of pressure to cut through the turkey bones
Handle: comfortable to hold with a slightly squarish handle that is best for large hands; it did get quite warm with prolonged use
Features: lock button, easy blade release, separate set of “bread” blades, wooden holder (not really necessary but a nice bonus), limited three-year warranty
Where to buy (buying from this supplier supports this website):
Since their earliest days as a small Baltimore machine shop, BLACK+DECKER has been a manufacturer of a variety small appliances, power tools and lawn care machines.
