KitchenIQ 50009 Edge Grip 2-Stage Knife Sharpener
The KitchenIQ Edge Grip Knife Sharpener is a no-fuss way to keep the bladed tools in your kitchen razor-sharp. It features a sturdy construction and a simple yet thoughtful design. One no longer has to be a master of the knife-sharpening trade for him or her to keep kitchen knives as sharp as possible. The gadget is compact enough for on-the-go knife sharpening.
The secret to a successful chef or home cook is knowing how to use the basic kitchen knife set. And while you may have the best-looking set of knives on the planet, it will still be nothing if you cannot keep them sharp. That is why knowing how to sharpen one’s knives and keeping them razor-sharp are very important skills for any artisan in the kitchen.
You do not have to learn the secrets to effective knife sharpening anymore. KitchenIQ already devised a very simple solution that is as easy as passing any knife through one of two slots in the gadget. The Edge Grip comes with a two-stage knife sharpening mechanism that simplifies the process of honing the cutting edge of your blades.
KitchenIQ created one slot for dull and damaged kitchen blades. The coarse sharpening slot features carbide blades that can return the full cutting-edge sharpness of your knives and blades. One only needs a few strokes through the system and the sharpening is done.
There is another slot that’s dedicated to the polishing and finishing of knife edges. It functions more like your sharpening rod that chefs use to keep their blades razor-sharp. It’s a system that allows for the fine-tuning and the touch-up of their knives that are already sharp. This second slot features ceramic rods; quite different from the carbide blades in the other slot.
This KitchenIQ product also comes with the Edge Grip design. Other knife sharpeners require placement on the countertop or table. Gliding the knife through the sharpening slot can damage either the knife or the countertop if the knife overshoots the edge of the slot. As such, by placing the KitchenIQ on the edge of the countertop, you can avoid such incidents. You get to retain the integrity of the knife and the countertop or table.
The Edge Grip Knife Sharpener from KitchenIQ is small. However, it has some of the kitchen world’s biggest features that simplify the process of sharpening knives. It keeps the integrity of your other kitchen items, too.
