Priority Chef's Premium Knife Sharpener is a two-stage sharpening system with coarse and fine sharpening. It's really easy to use - For completely dull knives, pull 2-4 times through the coarse section. For light sharpening, just pull 2-4 times through the fine sharpening section. Both sections are easily labeled so there's no guesswork involved.
This sharpener sits on a counter or tabletop and has a handle with a rubber grip. This keeps it stable while pulling knives through the sharpening sections. It's very quick and easy to use -- I don't know why I never sharpened my knives before! Mine were so dull, but I guess that's what you get when you buy a knife block set second-hand at a garage sale... (Because knife sets are expensive!) I went ahead and sharpened all my knives using both the coarse side first and then the fine side of the sharpener since they were so dull and old. I'm telling ya, I don't think my knives have ever been this sharp. (Who knew - sharp knives making chopping and cutting a ton easier!)
If you're a cheapskate like me, using a sharpener is an affordable way to bring your dull knives back to life rather than buying a whole new set. It's quick, easy, and small enough to store in a kitchen drawer or cabinet. Or store it next to your knife block set - The black and silver design looks sleek enough to sit out on the countertop.
