Ever wonder how those celebrity chefs chop through their veg and herbs at the speed of light? It isn’t just technique you know. If your knives are looking a bit on the blunt side, you don’t need to buy new ones, just give them some TLC. Sharpening knifes can be a pain though, especially with those cheap rods and sharpening blocks that seem to take forever to do the job. This three stage knife sharpener from Scanpan has been specially designed to take the stress out of sharpening by breaking down the process into three simple steps!
If you know anything about knives, you’ll know that you have to be careful not to alter the shape when sharpening them. By covering the three stages separately, this innovative unit makes those perfectly sharp knives as easy as 1,2,3.
First, you remove any faults and nicks in the knife with the robust tungsten carbide sharpener to create a smooth surface. Then, you move on to the second stage, the diamond sharpener. This creates a more defined edge on the blade before moving on to the final stage. At last, you use the ceramic plate to really give your knife a cutting edge that’s ready to go. In a few flicks on the hand, your knife will look like new again, making it a great gift idea for any keen chefs.
