Presto EverSharp electric knife sharpener will take your sharpening tasks out of the stone age and into modern times. Many reviewers were skeptical at first. Some of them felt like they were traditionalists and wanted to stick to their sharpening stones. But a few swipes through Presto EverSharp's electric knife, and they were converted. Happy reviews were pleased at how easy it was to use, and it made quick work of what is usually a delicate process. Presto EverSharp does more than simply make your knife sharper, it properly angles the blade making it sharper for longer. Presto also made this electric sharpener with versatility in mind. Most reviewers used this for their dull kitchen knives, but other reviewers were satisfied when trying the sharpener on their hunting knives, fillet knives, and even their ceramic knives. As long as it is a knife, and it is not serrated, the Presto EverSharp will be able to sharpen it.
While this electric sharpener may be easy to use, there is a bit of a learning curve. Reviewers advised to apply only a small amount of pressure when running your knives through. Apparently the motor is not powerful enough to withstand the pressure of your full weight. It is also evident that not all reviewers were pleased with Presto EverSharp. There seemed to be an equal amount of people pleased with this electric knife sharpener as there were people displeased. While it cannot definitely be said why some reviewers were unhappy, the learning curve and bias to traditional sharpening stones likely played a factor.
