With only two slots, this sharpener is very compact, which makes it easy to handle and use regardless of whether you have large or small hands. One slot is for coarse sharpening, the other for fine. The manufacturer recommends running knives 6 to 12 times through each slot, depending on the dullness of the blade. As with many other sharpeners, diamond coated wheels do the work. The small size and low weight allow this sharpener to be stored in a kitchen drawer and carried along on a road trip. The ergonomic handle and non-slip cushion on the base make it stable, comfortable, and safe to use. Often sold for under $20, this sharpener is a bargain yet does admirable job of keeping your knives sharp. Warranty: 60-day 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back.

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them.

It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.
The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
