Works wonders if you want to keep your knives sharp and I mean SHARP with very little effort this is the sharpener. Just follow the simple instructions and you should get years out of this product.

The Chef's Choice 130 is very useful and efficient. the only thing is I have to step down from 230v and the transformer that I use is big and heavy. Therefore it is rather inconvenient. Wish you have a 23v/50 hz machine.

This sharpener is wonderful! I've had our Wusthof knives sharpened professionally and this sharpener is every bit as good as what a professional sharpening service would provide. It is easy to use and fairly quiet.

By Dotti L. from Waterville Valley, NH

Now I can have sharp knives whenever I want, without fear of ruining a blade. Follow the instructions, and you'll always be able to slice tomatoes, apples, meat, or any other food. It's the best way to have sharp blades without wasting away the metal.

By Scott M. from Athens, GA
February 17, 2007

The Chef's Choice Model 130 performed exactly as advertised. Following the clear instructions, I was quickly able to restore a very sharp edge to knives that have not had one for years--both expensive and cheap ones. I previously had only limited success with manual sharpeners. The Model 130 also worked well for our serrated knife, which I had no idea how to sharpen any other way.

By Emily D. from Atlanta, GA
February 17, 2007

This is an excellent sharpener! It is very easy to use, quiet, and got my knives into the best condition possible. It is well worth the money, especially if you have a really good set of knives, and you cook a lot. Cook's Illustrated rated it as the best knife sharpener, which is what got me to buy it. They were right; it is the best!

By Mitch N. from Shreveport, LA
February 14, 2007

The Chef Choice Professional Sharpening Station does a great job in sharping all my kitchen knifes. It takes just a little practice to learn how to get the touch down. After doing couple knifes I was able to sharpen all my knives and can cut a sheet of paper.

This is a wonderful product! It is so easy to use. For the first time ever, all the knives in my kitchen are incredibly sharp and a pleasure to use. I can't believe I waited so long to own one. It's the best value for anyone's dollar!

By Duncan F. from Buffalo, MN
January 27, 2007

This is a great product!Be sure to read and follow the directions before using it and you will have some really sharp knives! In fact the manufacturer even includes a note advising new owners to be aware that their knives will be sharper than they are used to using. Their note is right!!! It really makes food prep easier!

By Diane M. from Newport, RI
January 26, 2007

The Chef's Choice #130 Professional knife sharpener is awesome. My husband and I love to cook. Our knives were so dull that we were becoming increasingly frustrated with cutting and chopping food. I read a critique of Chef's Choice #130 in "Cook's Illustrated" and knew that it would be my choice. We are greatly satisfied.

I purchased this sharpener as a gift for my husband. He used it right away and found it easy to use. He sharpened all of his chef's knives that had lost their edges. The results were knives that cut like new. Based on his satisfaction, I'd highly recommend this sharpener.

This sharpener has revived my dull knives! It is very easy to use and puts a nice sharp edge on all my kitchen knives. I didn't know how much my knives needed sharpening until I sharpened them. Now, they glide through everything!

By Chris B. from Farmington, MA
December 10, 2006

This is a big step up from the Chef's 110 I bought ten years ago. This is a tool for the serious chef who wants his/her knives razor sharp, every time, all the time. Very easy to master, heavy duty and quiet.

By John D. from Monrovia, CA

The only problem with this product is that I should have purchased this 20 years ago. I would have saved so much time and money. It's great!

By Bruce M. from Baileys Harbor, WI
December 5, 2006

Cooks Illustrated recommended the Chef's Choice #130 as being the best. I put the sharpener to work upon it's arrival. My knives are now the sharpest they have been in years. If you need a knife sharpener this is the one!

By Matt M. from Thousand Oaks, CA
October 7, 2006

This sharpener works great! It is the first electric sharpener I have purchased. In the past I have manually sharpened kitchen knives. Now that I have this Chef's Choice 130 sharpener it is amazing how fast I have a razor edge blade. Actually better than what I did by hand.I highly recommend this sharpener!

By Robert M. from Mountain View, CA
October 2, 2006

After a little practice to get the feel of each sharpening wheel and the steel, I am able to put a consistent edge on all of my knives, in a short amount of time. This is my first powered sharpener and it makes a great edge compared to all the manual tools I have used in the past.

By Deanne D. from Oklahoma City, OK
August 24, 2006

I bought the knife sharpener for my husband, and he picked the one he wanted. He seems to be very happy with it! He sharpened many knives and enjoyed how easy it was to use. It does take some getting used to and then you feel more comfortable.

By Craig Y. from Denver, CO

By Chet P. from Seneca, SC

Very easy to use and does a great job at sharpening. Once knives are sharpened with this device they stay sharp for a long time. Highly recommended. Great product.

By Wes R. from Omaha, NE
February 14, 2006

I was a little leary about the 2nd stage being a steel rather than a wheel but it works very well.

By Susan S. from Chicago, IL
February 10, 2006

I have been presured for over a year to buy a knife sharpener for my husband. After doing the research, the Chief's choice was the best on the marked. After my first use of it, I knew I was right. This is a great product and does such a wonderful job of sharpening my knives. It's like they are brand new.

By Ingrid S. from Lafayette, CA
February 5, 2006

We love this knife sharpener. Gourmet cooking is our hobby and we collect quality knives and have always sharpened by hand. This product is easy to use and sharpens as well as honing by hand. It was delivered much quicker than stated. We received it within four days of ordering.

By Chuck T. from Northern Virginia, Virginia

I'm a professional butcher and this sharpener is the best I've seen

By Mark M. from Huntington Beach, CA

You have to sharpen your knives to realize how dull they were... What a difference. A truly professional quality product. Easy to use and what a great job it does.

By Don S. from Cedar Rapids, Iowa
January 11, 2006

I have used all kinds and types of knife sharpeners and the chef's choice#130 is the best I've used to date. I have an old worn-out knife in my workshop that looks like it has been used to saw nails and the 130 even gave that thing a razor edge! Amazing.

By Judy H. from Rocklin, CA

Works very well

By John P. from Little Rock, AR

This sharpener is great. It makes it easy to get a good edge on your knives. The process is quick, painless (though a little loud) and seems to be relatively fool-proof. I would buy it again with no hesitation.

By Robert P. from Augusta, GA

We gave this as a gift. After our friend opened it we used it to sharpen all our knives! They came out great...

By Robert J. from Bryn Mawr, PA
January 13, 2007

I bought two of these as Christmas presents for my two adult daughters, so I can't say very much about them. However I did sharpen my own knives with one before I wrapped them up for Christmas and it seemed to work just fine. Now I guess I have to order a third one for myself!

By Paula G. from Sacramento, CA
November 28, 2006

I will learn to use it better. My knives did not have that professional edge but now they do and practice may make perfect!

By A. K. M. from Baltimore, MD
September 19, 2006

It sharpens well but awfully slowly.

By Bruce H. from Tracy, CA
July 5, 2006

It works well for "kitchen" knives, straight blades up to 1/8" thick or so. Thicker blades have a hard time passing through the guides. Blades with multiple angles won't work well. I'll keep it for the kitchen knives.

By Scott J. from Angel Fire, NM
April 23, 2006

Works largely as advertised, and is very quick. The three stations for different work on a knife edge are explained clearly, and the stations work quickly. A minor amount of practice is required in order to get the proper 'draw-through' and to get the timing right. As far as overall honing of a knife -- dramatic differences for very dull knives and for poor or cheap knives. Less of a noticeable difference on the really expensive knives. I haven't yet been able to attain the edge and cut that a professional sharpening gave my paring knife.

By Charles G. from San Francisco, CA
March 22, 2006

Very nice. Have only had this sharpener for a month or so and it seems to be just what we wanted. Still learning to use it with some expertise but very satisfied.

By Brady K. from Bedford, IN
March 17, 2006

Nice heavy-duty unit. It claims to be "foolproof" which is a tad overrated! After trial-and-error I found it to be quite capable of producing a sharp quality edge. I'm now glad I purchased it!

By Jack A. from Naples, FL
March 16, 2006

Seems to put a very nice edge on knives. I only use it occasionally and have to find the directions each time as I forget which slot to use and which not use etc.

By James L. from Ney York, NY
March 1, 2006

This was a gift for my wife, a rank amateur knife sharpening person and she is turning out very servicable edges in a few seconds. After READING the manual, I'd think anyone could do likewise. A good, handy, product.

By Joe W. from Mountville, PA
December 29, 2005

Great product. Sharpens knives as advertised.
