Edgeware Diamond Edge Gourmet Electric and Manual Knife Reviews
This unit has gotten a handful reviews and they are all really positive (The average rating for the Edgeware Diamond Edge is 5/5 Stars).
There are several things customers who took the time to review this product really seem to like. The first big plus that almost all the reviewers seemed to comment on, was how this Knife sharpener actually lived up to its promise of creating a true hollow ground blade. The hollow ground is basically the edge that really high end knife factories put on their knives and for this same reason almost everyone really appreciated this benefit.
The next thing that was positive about this particular knife sharpener was the amount of time saved because it sharpened both sides of the blade simultaneously. One user was quick to mention that he had often had problems with this feature with his previous sharpeners, but was impressed with how the Edgeware centered the edge correctly.
If you are considering how long it will take you to sharpen your knives with this model, we found one user who commented that he sharpened all his wife’s kitchen knives in just around 5 minutes. Most people seemed to agree that this product was in fact very fast and efficient. Furthermore they agreed that you will never have to get your knives sharpened anywhere else as long as you have one of these machines in your home.
One minor negative detail was that the scissor sharpener was in ceramic and therefore not up to the same high quality as the rest of this unit.
All in all, this product is definitely something we can recommend unless you feel that the ceramic scissor sharpener is too big of a flaw.
