Electric Knife Sharpener

An electric knife sharpener is a small kitchen appliance dedicated to keeping your blades sharp and ready to use at all times.

Technology is great and helps us in our daily lives in many different ways. Advances in technology improve our ability to do tasks more quickly and save us time.

Some gadgets may seem unnecessary until we use them and they become indispensable. Take for instance an electric knife sharpener or an electric wine bottle opener.  

Both tasks seem simple enough to do manually but when you think about it, sharpening a knife properly can take 5 minutes of your time. An electric knife sharpener does the job in seconds.

Opening a bottle of wine with a standard corkscrew can be hit and miss and sometimes requires real effort to extract the cork from the wine bottle.

With an electric wine bottle opener, the same chore is instant. Both of these gadgets are a real boon for those of us with busy lifestyles.

What Is An Electric Knife Sharpener?

Sharp knives are essential in the kitchen. Slicing meat and vegetables precisely and effortlessly speeds up the cooking process and if you have ever tried peeling a potato with a blunt paring knife you will understand that the struggle is real. 

Just switch on the power and run the blade through one of the slots and it is instantly and painlessly rejuvenated and like a razor-sharp brand new knife.

A quality electric knife sharpener will also sharpen scissors. The best electric knife sharpener will have diamond coated abrasive sharpening modules that make short work of sharpening all types of blades whether straight-edged or serrated.

What Is An Electric Wine Bottle Opener?

An electric wine bottler is simply a device to remove the cork from your favorite bottle of wine either by the standard method of drilling into the cork and then removing it by drawing it from the bottle or by suction.

The suction method works by forming an airtight seal around the top of the wine bottle and creating a vacuum and literally sucking the cork free with the satisfactory “pop” that we are used to hearing.


Another very important aspect to consider and a huge plus point for both of these small but useful kitchen appliances is safety.

Sharpening a knife by hand comes with many risks that are fairly obvious. One slip could lead to a fairly serious cut when dealing with a sharp knife or scissors.

If you don’t want to deal with this, you can have a look at our food processors which automate the process of food preparation.

Opening a wine bottle (especially in front of guests) can also be tricky. Struggling to hold the bottle while gripping it could result in an accident.

 Sharpening with an electric knife sharpener eliminates these risks, as does popping cork with an electric wine bottle opener.
