Verified Buyer Reviewed by Middle age student from Minnesota on Saturday, November 26, 2016This is really a neat little gadget. You use the handle on top to lock the suction cup so it doesn't slip while you're sharpening. When it's not being used, the handle blocks the sharp part on the top. And it's so small! The last thing I need is anything else taking up space in my teeny kitchen.
I only gave 4 stars because relative to high-end, electric knife sharpeners, this doesn't seem to get exactly the same results, but seriously, for this price, I don't care. I still end up with very, very sharp knives. It's not like I'm gunning for gourmet sous-chef level results. Also, I could probably do a few more passes and see if that changes things.
Oh, another small criticism is that the packaging doesn't say how many passes to make... How do you know you're done? (Rephrased: If you're a total amateur in the kitchen, your poor kids live on frozen "chik'n" nuggets, and cooking tools baffle you, how do you know you're done? haha).
Verified Buyer Reviewed by cappnormal from Minnesota on Monday, September 26, 2016This is a fantastic sharpener.
I've had this type of sharpener before. The ones I bought were much more expensive and also worked well.
The problem with this type of sharpener can be the suction. This brand has super suction. Sharpening blades work very well.
I purchased two more after trying the first one.
