If you were looking for electric knife sharpener reviews you came to the right place. I’ve built this site specifically to look at knife sharpeners because I feel that they are a very valuable tool that will pay for themselves many times over throughout the course of their lifetimes.
While on the homepage I have compiled a database of different knife sharpening products to make it easy to compare them to each other, on this page specifically I want to focus on the most popular electric knife sharpeners.
1. Chef’s Choice 15 Trizor XV EdgeSelect Electric Knife Sharpener
This knife sharpener comes up any time electric knife sharpeners are discussed. It is considered, at least currently, to be as close to perfect value as you can get in the middle price range, about $150.
It is extremely consistent, mainly because it’s so easy to use. This makes it very accessible to beginners who are trying to be more involved in the kitchen. As with most electric sharpeners it can handle just about any type of knife, serrated included, and has a solid 3 year warranty.
The only ‘complaint’ about the Trizor XV is that it will take off a substantial amount of material if you use it on a knife too often. As long as you don’t overdo it however it shouldn’t be a major issue.
2. Presto 08800 EverSharp Electric Knife Sharpener
The Presto Eversharp is the ultimate electric sharpener for cheap (~$30). BUT you need to know that it does not work with serrated knives. If you need an economical option for serrated knives move on to #3.
As far as quality of the sharpening goes it’s more than you could ask for from such an affordable option. Obviously it won’t be as good as the leading mid-range models, but it is actually just about as good as some of the worse mid-range models, for a heck of a lot less out of your pocket. All in all this is a good product if you have a lot of regular edge knives, but if you plan on sharpening expensive or exotic knives at all it would be a good idea to move a step up in price range.
3. Chef’s Choice 220 Hybrid Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener, White and Brushed Stainless Steel
When you’re looking at electric knife sharpeners two companies always come up at the head of the pack, Chef’s Choice and Presto. That’s why it shouldn’t be that big of a surprise that the next highest rated sharpener is another Chef’s choice model, the 220 Hybrid Diamond sharpener.
The biggest difference between this and #1? This sharpener was made for people who wanted a more economical model. It may not be 100% as good, but still does a very good job, especially when you consider it’s only around $40.
Just like the Trizor sharpener it can handle serrated knives along with most other kinds. The reason it’s called a hybrid sharpener is that it has 2 slots that are electric powered, which contain diamond abrasive wheels, but it also has one slot with a manual hone to use as needed.
