As others have already said my mother had one of these (50 years ago) and it worked great for her and she liked it. We have lots of kitchen knives and I have many systems to put a razor edge on them. My wife could never seem to make any of the sharpening systems work. I saw this and bought it and she is in heaven. It works great and she can do it herself without having to ask me to do it for her. Amazing it's still around after all these years and it still works! - Marc
Have you ever tried to cut up some meat or veggies for dinner and every clean knife you find are all so dull, they wouldn't cut anything, but maybe your finger. I bet you have! I know I have. Would you want to shave with a dull razor? Ouch! How about cutting your grass with a dull lawn mower blade? We all know how effective that is and how much harder it is to cut the grass. Then why would you ever cut with a dull knife?
Wouldn't you like to have a nice clean, razor sharp knife to use, but who has the time to stop cooking to sharpen knives? Who knows where the old knife sharpener is or if you still have one? It's probably in the bottom of, one of your the kitchen drawers somewhere. But which drawer? Who knows!
We attached this sharpener to the inside of our cabinet door and it works wonderfully. It sharpens super fast and it is always right where I need it. All growing up my mom had the exact same sharpener and for at least 25 years it worked great and was always attached right to the cabinet door. It took be a couple years for me to find one like it, but I did. I recommend it fully. - Matt
The New York Times, writes on several knife sharpeners tested: "You will always know where your sharpener is if you attach it to something. Installation is usually simple, with only a screwdriver. Do not attach a sharpener to a surface that would be damaged by knife cuts, like wallpaper or a fine countertop. I tested three of this type. The aladdin sharpeners fasten to a wall at eye level. Aladdin's plastic white oval housing would be unobtrusive in any kitchen decor. I liked all of the sharpeners tested, but found that the Aladdin, always in a fixed place, was the one I tended to use the most". - Denise Landis, The New York Times

"My mother used your knife sharpener for years. When I bought my own home I purchased one and introduced my wife to the value of the product. Subsequently we have moved nine times and have always bought a new sharpener for each new home. When I got to MO., I could not find your product and had to rely on a friend in MA. to forward sharpeners to me for my home, and lake house. Now that I can get your product on-line I'll not have to rely on others.Please do not try to improve your product. It's simply perfect the way it is". K. Kruger - Missouri.
There is simply not a better or easier to use knife sharpener to be had. I've had mine mounted of the inside of a cabinet door for probably 40 years. Always at hand, always ready, always a good job, and no hassle. I've just bought 4 for my children for Christmas. Their generation always goes for the high tech. Time to learn that simple can be best. - Trooper
I had no idea these had been around so long, but we've had one for about a year, and it has had an incredible effect on making kitchen work easier, faster, and safer. I have been searching stores without luck, because I want to buy them for our children's homes as well. Turns out they are available widely online. I can't understand why stores don't stock them, but I highly recommend getting a couple at once because you will definitely want more than one when you see how well they work. - R. Barron

I've had several electric knife sharpeners over the years, some of them very expensive, but they're all gone. For the past 30 years I've had, like many other reviewers, this tiny sharpener inside the pantry door. A couple of swipes of the knife is all it takes to keep it sharp. My father used to say there was nothing more useless than a dull knife and I'm always surprised when I find dull knives at friends houses. The few reviews of this great tool are just another indicator of how few people keep their knives sharp, mostly because the fancy sharpeners are hard to use. This is so quick, easy and foolproof that it's actually fun to use. You will never regret this purchase. - D. Steiner
