Whether it’s Asian or European, ceramic or serrated, it doesn’t matter... just adjust. Simply turn the large knob to the appropriate angle and both the coarse and fine sharpening slots adjust accordingly to factory quality edges. If the factory angles are not known, use the clearly marked angles for European, Asian, or Ceramic knives or review the listing provided in the owner’s manual. The two electric sharpening slots provide two stages of sharpening - a coarse slot for sharpening very dull or damaged double-bevel straight-edge knives, and a fine slot for
straight edge, Asian, serrated, and even ceramic knives. These coarse and fine slots feature KitchenIQ’s proprietary technology of diamond interlocking wheels in the coarse slot and ceramic overlapping wheels in the fine slot. Traditional electric knife sharpeners work in a combination of numerous steps and only sharpen one side of the knife at a time. They often scratch and damage the knife blade. The adjustable electric knife sharpeners from KitchenIQ deliver fast factory quality sharpening of both sides of the knife blade at the same time.
