Key Features

Razor Sharp High-Quality Blades

Oh my! This electric sharpener has the best quality blades. It can be felt when you lift the product itself. Blades are tightly fixated on the housing and they look very sturdy. However, because of their sharpness, it is important to take care of the grinding process. If there is too much of the vibration you should switch off the machine unless the knife is thick.

It has three stage sharpening mechanism

When you have three stages you expect the knife to get good sharpness. Same is the case here. The first stage of the sharpening process is grinding where the dullness will be treated. After that, the knife will pass through the honing process. This is the second stage. Once this is done, the third stage will be the polishing or stropping process to give better edges.

Durability

It is lightweight for sure. One of the concern is because of its material it may generate a lot of friction. Sometimes this will lead to blade vibration. This results in a reduced level of tightening. But, it will last long for sure. It may require a little bit of tightening and a bit of maintenance. Parts are free from BPA.

Easy to Use Design

When you consider the design, you feel that the product has made everything easy for you. All you need to do is just pull through the knife a few times in each stage to get the desired results. You can even monitor the effect after each stage. If the knife does not need honing and polishing you can skip the process.
