This electric model is a knife sharpener from National Presto Industries, and their newest addition to an already large line of excellent knife sharpeners. It features a sleek, modern design that fits excellently into every kitchen, be that a new, stainless steel type kitchen or a more traditionally fitted kitchen.
It uses a two-fold system that is designed to perfectly sharpen your blades, and give them that razor sharp edge. You have to keep in mind that this is designed for use in the North America, so it will only work on 120 v power. This coupled with the fact that it is relatively affordable, makes it a perfect addition to ever kitchen.
As we already mentioned, sharpening your kitchen knives is a breeze with this sharpener. It is a two-step process, so the first run is used to grind the imperfections from a blade, preparing it for the second stage, where all the fine tuning takes place. First slot is made from tungsten carbide, and the second one uses a ceramic grind.
The great thing about this sharpener is the fact that it has slots, guides that allow you to sharpen the blade in a pre-set angle. As incorrect positioning is usually the greatest sharpening problem this is an excellent way to avoid unneeded headaches. Both grinds have to positioning slots, allowing you to sharpen both sides of the blade evenly and quickly. The best part us that sharpening is done in under two minutes!
When it comes to the final say on this one, we believe that this is a great, affordable product that will make your kitchen knives razor sharp after every use. Presto 08800 EverSharp Electric Knife Sharpener is great for use in the kitchen, but not best suited for serrated or hunting knives, and maybe not the best choice for knives made of hard steel, such as hunting knives.
