Presto Pro Electric Knife Sharpener
The Presto EverSharp Electric Knife Sharpener
is known as being one of the best low-end electric knife sharpeners around. At $40 it is significantly less expense than other similar sharpeners.
The Presto EverSharp Sharpener is a two stage electric knife sharpener. The first stage coarsely grinds the knife and begins to sharpen it while the second stage finely hones it.
The blade guides on the Presto pro knife sharpener are also very nice, holding the knife at the correct angle while they are sharpened. It also uses Sapphirite grinding wheels, which Presto claims are the same as professional shops, though this isn't strictly true, but works well when sharpening alloy, carbon, or stainless steel knives.
Amazon currently has these on sale for $26.40, over $13 off.
