Chef’s Choice 120 Diamond Hone Pro EdgeSelect Electric Knife Sharpener

This Sharpener's Solid Construction Handles Years of Use

Featuring three-stage precision sharpening, this electric sharpener can sharpen chef's knives, butcher knives, sporting knives, and serrated knives. Stage 1 consists of coarse 100% diamond coated discs to sharpen very dull or damaged knives. This section of the sharpener is not used often and has a removable cover to make sure you use it only when absolutely necessary. Stage 2 consists of finer diamond discs to hone a micro-edge bevel on your blade. The stage 2 slots can be used for routine sharpening and re-sharpening. Stage 3 is for polishing and produces an even finer micro-bevel and superb sharpness. Stage 3 is also the only stage used for serrated knives. Unlike other electric sharpeners, the EdgeSelect 120 has a feature that allows you to clean and re-shape the sharpening discs themselves.

I was surprised at how dull my serrated knives were. Before sharpening, I cut a French baguette on one of the hard ends. After sharpening, I cut the other end of the baguette. Now I have a sharp serrated knife!

To operate the sharpener, you turn on the unit, put the knife blade into one of the slots on the appropriate stage and pull toward you. For an 8” knife, you pull for about 4 seconds. As you pull, built-in springs hold the knife securely against the angle guides in that slot. To sharpen the other side of the blade, you use the other slot in that stage, and pull the knife toward you again. Usually 1-2 pulls through Stage 2 and Stage 3 will sharpen or re-sharpens any knife. This sharpener is expensive, but you should never need another sharpener and it keeps a variety of knives super sharp. Warranty: three-year household warranty.
