Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 74275R

Electric knives are carving but not all are created the same.

The Hamilton Beach Classic was the loudest of the electric knives we tested. It cut bread and cheese well but had problems with tougher items like squash and turkey bones. It is also too large for most hands and produced heavy vibrations.

Loudness: 94.5 DB, the loudest knife we tested with an irritating grating sound

Bread: easily cut through soft bread, had to press hard to cut through hard breads and tilt these breads to cut through bottom crust

Squash: didn’t cut it

Hard cheese: cut a decent slice with some pressure

Poultry & meat: sliced everything nicely

Bones: cut through chicken bones but had difficulty cutting turkey bones

Handle: too large for most hands (I have big hands and it was even too big and round for me); the handle became slippery very quickly and got quite warm after a dozen or so cuts

Vibration: more vibration than the other knives, especially after long use, as the blades seem to grate together

Features: no lock button, inconsistent and difficult blade released located on the top of the unit, plastic storage case, bonus meat fork (not really necessary), one year limited warranty in US (5 years in Canada)
