This Chef’s Choice Commercial Knife Sharpener model is quite a bit expensive than the other home edition. I was attracted to it because of the added features and the durability that came with it. It was guaranteed to provide at least 500 cycles of use.
A cycle is one knife sharpening session. So, if a person uses it for only once during the month, that would be a great deal. Compared against other models, the durability is far more superior. You can sharpen four to five knives a month and still not wear your unit out.
Pons Of Chef’s Choice Commercial Knife Sharpener
The advantage of this Chef’s Choice Commercial sharpener is that it can give you different kinds of edges. Some edges can be formed by using only certain grooves on the device. This is the major difference between the Chef’s Choice Commercial models and the home models. The home models are only limited to creating one kind of edge.
However, if compared to the skilled hands of a person who sharpens knives manually, these machines are considered as obsolete. Anyway, for home users like us, it doesn’t really matter as long as it sharpens our knives to perfection. That would be good enough.
Having a home sharpener at home is still better than having to send your knives to the shop for regular maintenance. It’s a cost saving method to sharpen your knives at a satisfactory rate at the comfort of your own home. You would only need to pay once for the Chef’s Choice and have your knives maintained regularly. All you need is a little practice.
Make sure that you wash your knives before and after sharpening to avoid damaging your machine with bits of leftover food. Washing after sharpening also ensures that your food will not be contaminated by unseen flecks of microscopic metal, left embedded after the sharpening process.
So, all in all this is a good product if you will need to sharpen plenty of knives at a regular rate. If not, the durability of the other home editions will suit your needs, as this is more expensive than the other Chef’s Choice knife sharpeners.
