Electric Knife Sharpener

An electric knife sharpener provides automatic blade sharpening for your kitchen or hunting knife to keep it in top form.

Most people will have a range of kitchen knives available to assist in preparing food while cooking. When used over a prolonged period of time the blade on these can become dull and this can make them harder to use. However, it is possible to get the blade of a knife back to its best, and an electric knife sharpener is a simple appliance used for this purpose.

An electric knife sharpener is a small kitchen appliance which is used to extend the live of kitchen knives by re-sharpening a dull blade. They generally include a set of sharpening wheels made from hard material such as diamond abrasives which turn at high speed when the device is switched on to effectively sharpen a blade. In many of the higher quality machines, a knife will be polished as well as sharpened and this can improve the appearance of the blade and return it more to its original pristine condition.

The obvious advantage of having an electric knife sharpener is that it can keep the knives used for cooking in better condition and ready for use. In many cases a full set of kitchen knives can be expensive and purchasing an electrically powered knife sharpener can be a cost effective way to keep these in good condition and extend their useful life for as long as possible. Keeping knives sharp also makes them a lot easier to use and this can make preparing food when cooking a quicker and simpler job.

There are a number of good quality electric knife sharpeners on the market these days. An affordable option that gets good reviews is the Chef’s Choice Diamond Hone Multi-Stage 110. It can be found on the market for around $85 and features three sets of diamond hone abrasives, with each one sharpening at a slightly different angle. This enables it to sharpen quickly and effectively, although it can only be used for knives with a straight edge.

A higher quality electric knife sharpener from Chef’s Choice is the 120 Diamond Hone 3-Stage Professional Knife Sharpener, which costs around $150. This is capable of sharpening both straight-edged and serrated knives. The first two stages sharpen the knife, while the third polishes it to get it looking its best and the device is considered one of the better options available.

Other manufacturers that produce electric powered knife sharpeners include Smiths Abrasives and Presto. Costs can start at around the $30 mark for some of the basic knife sharpeners powered by electricity, with an example of this being the Presto Pro EverSharp Knife Sharpener. However the cost can increase to around $150 for some of the higher quality appliances on the market.

Keeping the knives in a kitchen sharp can make them easier to use when preparing food. An electric knife sharpener is a simple appliance designed for this purpose and they are generally easy to use. There is a variety of choice available, which should enable someone to find a suitable electrical sharpener for the knives they have in their kitchen.
