I bought this sharpener because it was a Cook's Illustrated recommendation. It's easy to use and it works well. I sharpened a blade that hadn't been sharpened in years; the blade now works as well as the day I purchased it.

This is not a flimsy, spot welded box grater. The metal is strong. The handle is solid. The catcher in the bottom fits snugly; it has a handle which makes for mess free removal. It costs a bit more than a cheap box grater, but your money will be well spent.
