How do the Chef’s Choice knife sharpeners compare to other knife sharpening options available?
Chef’s Choice Knife Sharpeners are high-quality electric sharpeners that can put an extremely sharp edge on just about any knife in 15-30 seconds. They are not a gimmick like many other sharpeners on the market today. There are two other quality alternatives available for knife sharpening that will give you a similar razor-sharp edge. The first is sharpening stones. While this is the preferred method for many, it is often less practical and more time consuming than using the Chef’s Choice Sharpeners. The second method of sharpening that we recommend is sending your knives out to be sharpened by a professional. While this method may provide you with a sharp knife, it has two major drawbacks, cost and time. Most professionals charge between $5 and $10 per knife. If you have 5-10 knives in your kitchen, that can mean a cost of between $25-$100 approximately every six months depending on your knife usage. The Chef’s Choice Sharpeners allow you to quickly and easily sharpen the knives yours
