When I found out that the store that sharpens my knives closed, I was thankful I remembered that Cooks Illustrated had recommended this model as a best buy and I can see why. While I am not a professional, I appreciate a sharp knife and this does the job. I was able to easily use it straight out of the box and was very happy with the results. The directions are easy to follow, the edge of the blade is very sharp; trying it out on an apple yielded that lovely "shush" sound you get when slicking cleaning through a hard object. This morning I sent out an email to my girlfriends offering my sharpener up for their holiday preparations and I hope they take me up on it.
