EC130: Professional Sharpening Station Model 130, White
Coddle your cutlery with, the Chef's Choice Professional Sharpening Station 130. It offers the serious cook, professional chef, or knife connoisseur "edge versatility" with a 3-Stage sharpening system that features Chef's Choice's renowned sharpening and stropping stages as well as the world’s most advanced steeling process.
Built-in precision angle guides in all three stages eliminate guesswork and produce consistently sharp edges every time. The Chef's Choice Professional Sharpening Station 130 eliminates the clutter of ineffective sharpening gadgets and provides in one compact appliance, the ultimate versatility of choosing the preferred edge for any cutting task. With the Chef's Choice Sharpening Station you can do it all, simply with the push of a single on/off button. And the astonishingly sharp, long-lasting edge is better than factory sharp, no matter which type of edge you choose.
Customize The Edge:
This unique sharpening station allows users to customize the edge for optimal performance depending on the cutting task. The three different edges (Fine Edge, Steeled Edge and Steeled/Polished Edge) can be acquired by using the station’s different stages. The revolutionary polished Fine Edge of hair-splitting sharpness will allow users to slice up fruit and vegetables with ease and create eye-appealing platters. Deboning meat and cutting through fibrous foods is a breeze with the controlled bite that the Steeled Edge offers and the Polished/Steeled Edge is perfect for performing the delicate tasks of filleting fish or thinly slicing smoked salmon.
The Different Stages:
Stage 1: Consists of rotating conical disks impregnated with 100% diamond abrasives that safely sharpen the entire edge of quality kitchen, household, Asian-style, sports, and pocketknives. It never detempers the knife blade and helps prolong the life of quality knives.
Features a super-hardened miniature steel that along with precision angle guides develop a shaving sharp edge with ultra-sharp microscopic serrations that provide a "bite" superior to professionally steeled edges. Stage 2 can be used as often as desired to maintain a consistent razor sharp-steeled edge until Stage 1 sharpening is required again. The sharpening angle of Stage 1 and Stage 2 are precisely set to optimize the sharpening steeling sequence.
Uses a flexible abrasive disk system — a high-tech version of the barber strop — to create a microscopically smooth, ultra-sharp fine edge. It can be used as often as needed to keep edges polished and maintained until additional sharpening is required. Stage 3 is also used for sharpening serrated knives. The ultra-fine flexible stropping disk straightens and aligns the serrations and sharpens each prominent tooth so it becomes an ultra sharp "micro-blade." It is excellent for serrated knives of any alloy, forged or non-forged, including so-called “never-need-sharpening” knives, which are serrated, and DO become dull!
How It Works:
The Fine Edge:
Use Stage 1 to sharpen and Stage 3 to hone and polish for a razor-sharp durable edge that is perfect for serving up decorative platters and precision slicing of more delicate foods.
Sharpen with Stage 1 and then steel with Stage 2 to obtain the controlled bite preferred by professionals for fibrous foods.
This is a superb edge of unprecedented sharpness, combining the characteristics of both a steeled and highly polished edge by sequentially going through Stage 1, 2, and 3. It’s ideal for precision slicing and elegant presentation of foods such as smoked salmon.
The 130 is ruggedly built, handsomely designed and molded from a sturdy, high-impact engineering polymer. Designed for safety, the sharpener is U.L. approved. Rubber feet hold the unit securely to the work surface. The sharpener requires no sharpening oils or liquids. The unit is compact enough (10 inches long by 4.3 inches high and 4.25 inches deep) to be permanently placed on the kitchen counter, so knives can be quickly resharpened.
This helps increase kitchen safety because sharp knives are much safer to use. Dull knives require the user to apply excessive force while cutting, increasing the risk of knife slippage and personal injury.
