E5 ELECTRIC KNIFE SHARPENER WITH CERAMIC HONING ROD AND MICROFORGE™ TECHNOLOGY
The E5 electric kitchen knife sharpener works with the press of a button. The sharpener automatically turns off at the end of a sharpening cycle—delivering professional results every time.
- Automated sharpening – it doesn’t get any easier
- Fast, simple, and gentle on knives – keeps them cutting and looking like new
- The included ceramic honing rod is ideal to maintain your edge between sharpenings and includes optional MicroForge™ edge for knives used for vegetables and utility work.
The Work Sharp Culinary E5 electric kitchen knife sharpener uses controlled speeds and timed sharpening cycles to shape, sharpen and refine all your kitchen knives at the touch of a button. Based on traditional belt sharpening practices, the E5 creates a sharp-as-new edge the same way manufacturers sharpen knives at the factory.
Precision sharpening guides, controlled speeds, and high-performance sharpening belts make the E5 knife sharpener easy, clean, and gentle on knives. A dual grit ceramic honing rod uses sharpening guides for consistent edge refinement, and includes a MicroForge™ port to cold forge micro-facets along the cutting edge. A MicroForge™ edge enhances cutting performance, extends edge durability, and improves knife control.
When you are ready to start preparing a meal, just a few strokes along the honing rod and your knives are ready to go. Honing preserves the cutting effectiveness of your knives, and extends intervals between sharpening. Maintaining your edges preserves the value of your cutlery, and lets you continue to enjoy the art of cooking!
Exclusive to the E5 series, One Touch Programming has the sharpening knowledge built-in. Push to Shape, Sharpen, or Refine, and the E5 automatically adjusts speeds and running time to match the degree of sharpening desired. Meanwhile, sharpening guides eliminate guesswork and uneven sharpening by applying the 17° Work Sharp Edge – a balance of the precise cutting ability of Eastern knives and the strength and durability of Western knives. The convex shape of the cutting edge created by sharpening with belts, your knives will perform like new or better, stay sharp longer, and continue to provide the value and integrity your knives were made to deliver. The E5 Upgrade Kit (sold separately) expands the sharpening capabilities of the E5 with 15° East and 20° West sharpening guides.
