Diamonds happen to be the hardest known material on the planet. The majority of Chef's Choice sharpeners use 100% diamond abrasives which speed up the sharpening process and make it more efficient. They will sharpen more aggressively and quickly without overheating and damaging the sharp edge. No lubricants or oils are required to maintain the diamond coated conical disks. Pretty impressive for a machine that sharpens at the challenging speed of 3,600 RPM. EdgeCraft, the company behind Chef's Choice, have done nothing short of mastering the manual and electric knife sharpener. The goal of the company when they were founded in 1986, the very reason for their existence, was to create THE best knife sharpener in the entire world. They accomplished that feat and continue to top themselves through the Chef's Choice brand.

I was very pleased with your product. It meets all the needs we have. I'm glad it was featured on Americas Test Kitchen, as I tend to trust their testing on devices.
I have never used such sharp knives. I have a set from Cutco that I bought primarily because they included free sharpening for life, but you have to pack them up and pay for shipping. The Trizor is a much better deal, so if you are on the fence about purchasing this, I say go for it.
Does a great job for what it is designed.
I used this to sharpen my so of knives to great success. I haven't tried it on my new width off knives as yet. But it seems to be worth it.
The sharpener shipped the day I placed the order. It is producing the sharpest knives I've ever owned. I've used it for both 15 degree edge Japanese knives (Global) and 20 degree edge European knives (Henckel). The European knives took more passes to convert the edge angle but ALL came out razor sharp.
