If you own a set of quality knives, this is a "must have" item. I shopped various consumer resources before choosing this sharpener. I am glad to have chosen so well. A sharp knife does the work for me and is so much easier to use. The guides and three stages allow me to sharpen without any guess work. This is so easy and satisfying to use.

Let The Edge Do The Work

A dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp one. This sharpener restores that fine edge quickly and with surprisingly little effort. Just follow the instructions and you will spend about 90 seconds putting that great cut back into your knife.
It is great working with fine edges again. Now my knives do the work instead of my arms and wrists. This sharpener lets stamped knives cut like forged blades, and keeps forged knives in top condition.
This purchase offers no regrets.

You will soon discover that this is the most versatile pan in your kitchen. Oven or stove top, you will use it more and more. Soon you will say "That's why they call it an "Everyday Pan". From bacon and eggs to braising short ribs this pan is the one you'll think of first. I ended up getting an extra because my first was so often in the sink.

This product has well earned its top rating in "Consumer Reports". It is an absolute pleasure having a drawer full of well honed knives. If one takes the time to follow the instructions, this sharpener actually extends the useable life of your knives.
Food preparation is much easier with properly prepared tools. I would recomend this sharpener over taking your knives to a professional. Professionals charge by the piece. With this tool in your home, you can put a great edge on those knoves that you would never bother taking to a pro.

Is this a kitchen tool or kitchen art ? It is great for grinding spices for salad dressings. On my counter it is quite the conversation piece for my guests. I have been asked more than once if it is a sculpture.

They should not call them "mixing" bowls. You will find a hundred uses for them. They are great for transporting food to a party. They are great for reheating in the oven, They are great for serving. The flat bottom keeps them stable and my dishwasher cleans up perfectly. I am glad I purchased them.
