[News] Work Sharp Culinary E5 Electric Kitchen Knife Sharpener

Hello Mi Fans,

We usually sharpen our kitchen knife with the traditional way by scrubbing the knife against sharpening tools but there are gonna be some changes in the traditional way. Give yourself the best tool for every recipe, introducing Work Sharp E5 Electric Kitchen Knife Sharpener. This device automates your knife sharpening experience with One Touch Programming. It's never been easier to shape, sharpen, and refine the cutting edge of every knife in the kitchen. Together with an 8" ceramic honing rod and built-in MicroForge™ technology, your knives will cut like new every time you start a culinary adventure. Check out how the E5 Electric Kitchen Knife Sharpener works:

Some years ago, Darex, an Oregon company that has manufactured sharpening equipment for four decades, jolted the world of knifery by introducing Work Sharp, an electric sharpener that employed abrasive belts, not wheels, so it would not burn your blades or tear off great gouts of steel. Most important, Darex took the need for skill out of the equation. The veriest dolt could now stick the dullest knife in a Work Sharp sharpener, and in a minute or so, come up with an edge that would give Jack the Ripper shivers of delight. But all was not perfect. The original Work Sharp machines (including a later, more sophisticated model developed by knife designer Ken Onion) looked like machines for sharpening knives, and so they found themselves banished from kitchens, where they could probably get the most use, to garages and workshops.

"A sharp knife is every chef's most important tool. We have created a sharpening system that will become an everyday routine. Work Sharp Culinary fills a gap in the marketplace for a simple, beautiful, sharpener designed to be used on a regular basis," explains CEO and acting Brand Manager, Matthew Bernard.

This lead to the to the ultimate transmogrification of the Work Sharp line, the E5 Electric Sharpening System. It consists of an electric sharpener which looks nice enough to keep in the kitchen, a ceramic honing rod and, if you want one, an upgrade kit which enables you to sharpen cleavers, and other fearsome objects. Not only is the E5 acceptable looking, but it’s completely automatic. All you do is push a button to either re-shape a blade to a rolled edge, sharpen a blade, or put on what Darex calls a MicroForge edge, with is sort of half-serrated and half straight and cuts savagely.

Push the button to program the E5, and keep sliding the blade through slowly until the machine stops. It knows when to stop because it’s smarter than you are. If your knife is not sharp enough to slice tomatoes so thin you can read a newspaper through them, repeat and it will be. The ceramic honing rod looks like a sharpening steel, but you don’t slap the blade down the edge. You put the rod end down on a hard surface, line the blade up with a built-in guide, and slide the knife down slowly.

Did you know, a sharp knife is actually safer than a dull knife? This revolutionary system uses flexible abrasive belt technology, the same method for making knives. The E5 Sharpener features sharpening guides, which produce a consistently superior edge every time you sharpen. In addition, you can also control the speed and select the function. The E5 Sharpener allows you to shape, sharpen, and refine the blade to your exact preferences. With the presets, you can simply press the button and let the machine do all the thinking. As an option, the E5 Sharpener offers MicroForge technology to create a long-lasting and durable edge. It also comes with a ceramic honing rod so you can maintain and refine the sharpness whenever you need. The E5 Sharpener gives your knives the integrity your food deserves.
