What customers say about "Key Specs"
Chef's Choice 1520 Angle Select Electric Knife Sharpener
  • Hooray! At last I have found an easy to use sharpener which does an excellent job.
  • This little machine does a superb job without maybe the mirror finish edges. I have now sharpened about a dozen knives,carbon steel, stainless steel, European and Asian style.
  • It puts a very good edge on even my hardest Japanese knives.
  • Thanks to this item you can get knives back to factory sharpness quite easily although you have to spent a little time polishing the edge to make it shaving sharp.
  • If you want a great, reliable, easy to use sharpener that works every time, get some other sharpener and not get one of the Chef's Choice Electric sharpeners.

What customers say about "Sharpening"
Chef's Choice 1520 Angle Select Electric Knife Sharpener
  • Two angles of sharpening. Actually more if you want to sharpen only on one side for sashimi.
  • Consistent quality sharpening. If you are doing it like it is mentioned in the manual, you will obtain a satisfactory sharpening quality.
  • Perfectly restores the edges on my high quality Shun knives, which use the 15 degree angle. And having the 20 degree angle option lets me sharpen my other spares and knives for friends.
  • I am also worried about the thin plastic blades that push the knife blade in the abrasive discs. Just doesn't look right!
  • The only point of note that the blades are a tiny bit serrated after use due to the strong abrasives.

What customers say about "Features"
Chef's Choice 1520 Angle Select Electric Knife Sharpener
  • Easy use. It takes a little bit to understand that you do NOT need to press hard on the knife blade. Just press with a finger on top and don't wiggle the knife inside the sharpener.
  • Clean operation. No extensive water/oil and cleaning need after the sharpening.
  • If you have badly dinged knives the 1520 will remove a LOT of metal fast to a straight 15-20 bevel.
  • It sharpens serrated knives as well. Would recommend it!
  • The bevel will have a different look compared to the original.
