This is one of the higher priced electric models currently on the market, and for a good reason. It is one of the most professional models intended for restaurants kitchens and for chefs’ extraordinaire who want all their blades to be razor sharp! It is important to get familiar with the device before using it, so we suggest that you read the manual before you proceed on sharpening.
One of the advantages of this model is the fact that it is very silent, so there will be no unnecessary noise disturbing you or your colleagues at work. This sharpener uses SteelPro technology that ensures that all your blades are professionally sharpened and honed to perfection each and every time.
This sharpener is extremely easy to use, but there is a slight learning curve in action here. Because of the fact that not all three sharpening stages are required for every knife, it is important to know which knife to sharpen and how. The aforementioned three stages are another thing that set this sharpener apart from the others. The first stage is a 100% diamond abrasive that is best used on dull blades as it helps remove any kinks in the blade itself. The second stage is hardened steel medium, and the third stage features a flexible stropping disk that is used primarily for honing the blade and applying the finishing touches.
The sharpener also has professional guides on each of the stages that help guide the blade and sharpen them in a correct angle. Every stage has double guides, used to precisely sharpen blades from both sides.
While this is quite a pricey sharpener, it is our opinion that it is worth every penny! Chef's Choice 130 Professional Knife-Sharpening Station is one of those sharpeners that will be a welcome addition to all restaurants and professionals, but also to those home kitchen enthusiasts who want their blades razor sharp in matter of seconds! Make sure to buy it if you want a quality sharpener that will last you for years!
