If you’re like most people in whose kitchens I’ve spontaneously had to pick up a knife and assist, your knives are likely… dull. But that doesn’t mean you’re dull and you can easily change things around with today’s Amazon sale on the Chef’sChoice EdgeSelect Electric Knife Sharpener. After the 21% discount, the sharpener’s going for $100 — its lowest price ever.
The EdgeSelect boasts more than 1,300 reviews and a 4.6-star average — and is in the top five best selling sharpeners. Its three-stage sharpening construct uses diamond abrasives to get any blade you have — serrated and not — to its best-performing sharpness. Best of all, if you haven’t sharpened your knives in a long while or are doing it for the first time, it’ll take all of one minute to sharpen it with the EdgeSelect, and then 10 seconds for maintenance sharpening.
When it comes to cutting stuff up, like slicing up juicy tomatoes for a Caprese salad, dicing up parsley for garnish, or trimming fat off a cut of steak or whole chicken, a sharpened blade makes a world of difference. And aside from all the obnoxious reasons that obnoxious people will list about why you should keep your knives sharp, the only one that should matter to you is that it makes things so much easier.
If you don’t have a knife sharpener or if the one you got years ago is in the back of a shelf collecting dust, now’s the time to change that.
