Chef’sChoice Model 130 Knife Sharpener Receives Top Scores from Industry Leaders

chefschoiceAvondale, PA– The Chef’sChoice Model 130 Professional Sharpening Station  has earned the “The Best” rating in the 2013 electric sharpener category from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute “because it produced the sharpest, most resilient edges.”

The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute analysts ran knives across a cement block 100 times and then sharpened them with each sharpening model tested. Analysts cite the “Chef’sChoice Model 130 ground edges that chopped spaghetti squash with little effort and sliced smoothly through sheets of paper, unlike lesser sharpeners that created edges that required great force to penetrate squash and cut paper into ragged slices.” The Chef’sChoice Model 130 “also sharpened serrated knives that cut easily through cardboard, far superior to lesser models that could not sharpen any toothed blades. It was also one of the quietest models.”

This best-selling and top-rated electric knife sharpener is also critically acclaimed by America’s leading test kitchen and cooking publication, dubbed ” as the  reigning favorite” and the  “Rolls-Royce of sharpeners, with spring-loaded blade guides that make sharpening foolproof.” Consumers who want to quickly and easily sharpen their knives with a product that they can trust can find out more information on this his industry tested, top-rated electric knife sharpener at or call 800.342.3255.


About the Sharpener: The Chef’sChoice® Professional Sharpening StationÔ M130 provides the ultimate “destination” to professionally sharpen, steel or strop all brands and types of knives, including straight edge or serrated, kitchen, sports and pocket knives.  The secret resides in the three separate, highly specialized stages. The first stage, using 100% diamond abrasives sharpens the edge.  In the second stage a super-hardened miniature steel develops a shaving sharp edge with ultra-sharp microscopic serrations that provide a “bite” superior to the professional steeled edge.  Or, a superior sharp microscopically smooth edge can be created by going from stage one to stage three, where a revolutionary flexible stropping disk polishes the edge to hair-splitting sharpness.  Stage 3 is also used for sharpening serrated knives.   Built-in, high precision user friendly, elastomeric angle guides coordinate to optimize the sharpening, steeling and stropping steps to ensure better than factory sharpness time after time. Available in white for $149.99 for white molded casing to $179.99 for brushed metal.
