Solid Sleeveless Matching Midi Light Blue Sling Dresses Review
Richard Morrow "el viejito": I expected to be able to use this sharpener to get a very good sharp edge to a knife. Unfortunately the edge I have been able to get is marginal at best. I've found that to get a truly sharp edge I have to use a hand stone and steel. I've been quite disappointed in the results.
Richie E. "Richard E.": A very good investment. Just follow the instructions. My knives are sharper then new. Have only sharpened my knives once so far. They are still very sharp.
Robert Traub "Robert Traub": I had purchased a Sabatier knife sharpener some years ago, recommmended by a Bloomie's salesperson/ knife aficionado. The unit had one slot, and kept a reasonable, but not great, edge on my Henckel knives. When I finally mangled my Henckel serrated bread knife to a completely dull edge with that sharpener (silly me), I had a dilemma. My current knives needed sharpening, and I wasn't getting the results I wanted with the Sabatier. I wasn't about to buy a whole new set of knives, either. I read some of the reviews here, and decided to take the plunge with the Chef's Choice. Good move!The sharpener took my dull knives and brought them back to life, as I would have hoped. My 8" Chef's knife is sharper than when I first got it. I have to be extremely mindful when using it now, as it can slice carrots and lop off a finger with ease.My serrated bread and tomato knives, which had less cutting ability than a butter knife, are much better after numerous passes through the serrated blade slot. While not what they once were (I have myself to blame, using my old sharpener on both standard and serrated blades), they at least provide some service now, versus none before. I am happy to report that the three-stage process in this model has the separate slot for serrated knives, which is great.One could argue a moderate set of knives is less expensive than buying this sharpener. However, if you believe it better to use what the pros use, and have invested in world-class knives, as I have, then this sharpener will keep them honed to an edge you will appreciate.
Senor Zoidbergo: I've been looking for a good knife sharpener for my parents, ever since I purchased their first pair of classis Wusthof knives. I've read about the Chef's Choice in Consumer Reports, the Google BBS rooms, and all the reviews on Amazon and Epinions. So I took the plunge and ordered it.3 days after ordering (thanks for switching to UPS Amazon!) I received it, and was quite pleasantly surprised. While some people have complained about the sharpener leaving a mark on their nice Wusthof/Henckels knives, I found this to be not a problem. Yes, it does leave a mark on your knives, but the mark is barely half a millimeter tall, and hardly visible. It's a small tradeoff to make to get wickedly sharp knives without having to go to a professional to get it sharpened at several bucks/inch; it will pay off in the long run.As for the people who have had problems sharpening their knives, well no offense, but you'd have to be blind, and/or a moron to not know how. The instructions are written plainly and clearly, and easy to follow, with advanced tips for specific types of foods.I do have one question- Chef's Choice manufactures a cheaper 3-stage sharpener, I wonder how good that one is. Probably not diamond coated though.Well, all in all, an excellent buy. The machine looks sturdy and strong, and it's such a relief to have a home sharpening kit. I could never properly sharpen with a whetstone and spindle-thingy.
Spingrinder: I used to use a Spyderco sharpener which provides great results, when used correctly. This does almost as good of a job at a fraction of the time. I don't know enough to tell whether or not it is doing any long term damage to the knifes or not but it does put a very nice cutting edge on my Wusthof's.
