A blunt knife is a bad knife. Rather than throwing out your dull knives and splurging on a new set this year, a simple and cost-efficient solution is investing in a good sharpener. Luckily for you, we stumbled upon a $10 one that is backed by a whopping 12,000 reviews: Introducing the Kitchen IQ Edgeware 2-Stage Edge Grip Knife Sharpener.
Don’t let its size fool you. This bestselling tool is designed to quickly and easily sharpen dull knives with just a few pulls through its “Coarse Slot,” which features carbide blades at preset angles to quickly bring your knife back to life. The 2-Stage Edge Grip Knife Sharpener also features a “Fine Slot,” which polishes knives.
“I've bought five... One for every star,” says one five-star reviewer. “Worth every penny. Does a good job sharpening kitchen knives. I'm sure some pro sets could sharpen this under the grindstone, but for the size and ease of use, nothing can beat this.”
“It really does work! I was sceptical at first but this is one of the best purchases I made,” says another. “No need to spend tons of money on stones and systems. This little thing is pretty good for regular kitchen use. I tried on many different knives and it worked. Unless you're a sushi chef, this will do it.”
This miniature knife sharpener is also made with a unique feature called “Edge Grip,” a non-slip groove on the bottom that allows the sharpener to rest on the edge of any countertop. This is important because it helps avoid dragging the tip of the knife of a large knife across the countertop, which could possibly damage the knife and ruin your table or countertop. Due to its compact size, it is very easy to store and great for packing on camping trips and to the cottage.
