I got it because it was recommended by Cooks Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen and they did not steer me wrong. I have kitchen knives that I have had for over 30 years. This sharpener is easy to use and has made the edges like new. It is expensive; no doubt about it, but it is worth it.
The instructions for this knife sharpener are complicated, obtuse & difficult to understand. They are written as if the only people using the machine are professional knife sharpeners who have sharpened thousands of knives. The instruction manual could be significantly improved by putting in some pictures of knives & the machine in action.
The performance of the machine is excellent. My solid edge knives couldn't be sharper -- and perhaps even sharper than when purchased. I'm not so sure it does much good for the serated knives -- I don't see much difference. But then, perhaps, I don't understand the directions for serated knives (other than it says that it supposedly works on them).
This product put a better edge on my knives than they came with, and they are one of the top German brands. It is easy to use, and the automatic spring-loaded edge angle feature works as advertised.

As a former executive chef, I've used a variety of knife sharpeners in my years in the kitchen. Some of these cost over $500 and did a fantastic job keeping my knives sharp. I'm now retired but still cook every day and use my knives that are over 20 years old. I can't afford an expensive sharpener, but have found that the Chef's Choice 130 does a comparable job of keeping a good edge on my old knives at a fraction of the cost of the real professional model. It's the best home model I have used so far.
Compared to taking in knives for sharpening, this is a super option. It does the job and is so convenient! Compared to the cost of taking in knives for sharpening, this little device pays for itself in no time.
I purchased this product on the recommendation of Cooks Illustrated. I have 7 or 8 knives that I use regularly and sharpen them occasionally on the devices that came with the knives. After using the ChefsChoice only once, I threw away all the handheld sharpeners in the drawer. I had to read the directions a few times to understand the different use cases, but once I got the confidence to actually put the metal to the slots, I was sold. My knives have never been so sharp and there is no doubt that a sharp knife is a safer knife. I highly recommend the product and with a little bit of patience, time with the videos on their website, and confidence (let's face it, it is scary to grind the metal off a $200 knife) you will never want to use an unsharpened knife again. When I help friends and family in their kitchens, I can't believe they actually cook with such dull knives. Next time I am bringing my ChefsChoice with me!
Delivery was on time. Sharpener is tremendous. I had a couple of knives I was ready to trash and this sharpener brought them to precision sharpness in just a few strokes on the number one sharpening wheel and a few on the number 3 wheel. Very satisfied so far. This was top rated by America's Test Kitchen and they have never steered me wrong.
A friend of mine bought this and was kind enough to sharpen my knives. I could not believe the difference! I was keeping them up with a steel myself but WOW, after he ran them through the machine I was hooked, I had to get one myself.
This knife sharpener really delivers a fabulous cutting edge! I had knives that were ready to be thrown away, and now they are, once again, favorites! I cook with fresh fruits and vegetables ever day, which means a lot of pealing, slicing, and dicing. What a difference a sharp knife makes! I highly recommend this knife sharpener.
I have hand-sharpened my knives for years, and I do a good job. A very good job. Finally, after seeing the reviews for the Chef's Choice, I decided to take a rest and give it a try. Glad I did! As others have made clear, IT IS IMPORTANT TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! Having done so, I am pleased by the speed, and well satisfied by the ability to get a beautiful cutting edge on my knives. Sigh... Should have done it years ago.
Never have a dull knife again.I sharpened all my dull kitchen knives as soon as the White professional sharpening station arrived in the mail. You must becareful however, because the blades are so sharp that I cut myself several times because I was not use to cutting with a sharp knife.
I've been reading about the recommendations for this product for awhile but put off spending this much money. I finally took the plunge and I'm so thrilled. This product exceeded expectations and I will use it for many years to come. I cook alot and use my knives daily so they constantly need sharpening. My knives have never been so sharp! My husband is my knife sharpener and he loves using this so much that he eagerly jumps on the chance to use the sharpener so I haven't even had a chance to use it. It works so easily and well. Highly recommended!
The instructions are complicated if you are not familiar with the product. I do not have any steeled edge knife so that part will probably never be used. I wish this had been explained in the product information before I purchased it. the first and last station are enough for most home use.
I got this for myself because I can never get a knife sharpened really well. But my husband, who does the knife sharpening the old fashioned way ... when he gets around to it ... and so our knives are dull most of the time, found me working on the first knife, and he took over sharpening all the knives. In a fraction the time it usually takes.
