Chef'sChoice Professional 130 Platinum Electric Knife Sharpener

A major breakthrough in sharpening technology, this award-winning design provides all your sharpening options in one compact appliance. It professionally sharpens, steels or strops all brands and types of kitchen knives--straight-edge, serrated, Asian-style-as well as sports and pocket knives. Three-stage electric sharpener obtains a "better than factory" edge quickly and effortlessly. Stage 1: using 100% diamond abrasives, sharpens the edge. Stage 2: a super-hardened miniature steel develops a shaving-sharp edge with ultra-sharp microscopic teeth, providing a superior edge "bite." Stage 3: a revolutionary flexible stropping disk polishes the edge to hair-splitting sharpness. Using these stages in different combinations produces custom edges suited to particular cutting tasks. User-friendly angle guides guarantee foolproof sharpening. Assembled in USA.

Excellent Product
May 3, 2015
Wore out my diamond stone and read reviews for this specific product in Cook's Illustrated as part of the researching process to find a quality automatic sharpener. I don't own the Platinum, but I did buy the 130 'normal' version at a W.S. store in OKC. I own several name brand high quality cutlery pieces and every one of them, including the serrated blade, were near factory sharp after having followed the instructions exactly as they fall in the manual. I have only used the sharpener once or twice (let that be a testament to its quality since I have not NEEDED to use it often) so I can only think that as I get better at using it I could get the knives closer to factory / 'scary' sharp again, but honestly I don't require that level of precision for my needs and experience level.
I strongly recommend this product.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality

Versatile Excellent Sharpener
September 13, 2014
This sharpener is designed to sharpen all types of knives, including serrated blades. Will either put a very sharp or steeled edge, depending on whether you desire an ultra sharp slicer for soft fruits or or a blade that will cut through fibrous vegetables. Did a remarkable job quickly sharpening blades that had not been sharpened in over a year.
Pros: Quality, Sharpness

Expensive, but so are good knives
August 25, 2014
This sharpener has done a very good job of keeping a factory-like edge on our mostly Wusthof Ikon knives. It's fairly easy to use, cleaning out the shavings isn't difficult and it works well for straight blades. I'm not, however, convinced that the one slot that can be used for serrated knives actually does anything. I can neither see nor feel a difference in the blade of a bread knife or serrated utility knife after use of the sharpener. For straight edges, it's a very functional addition to the kitchen and makes those "investment" knives work as they should.

We have some good knives but they definitely needed some help after much use. This was the answer, and we found out about it on Cook's Country or America's Test Kitchen. It was tested and reviewed and they were right!
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Store
