When it comes to comparing options for making an important purchase, the sheer amount of choice can be overwhelming. With hundreds of conflicting Amazon reviews for every product and review websites that offer competing advice about which products actually work, it can feel like an uphill battle to find reliable information on which to base your purchase decision.
Here at WiseGeek, we’d like to make this process a little easier by presenting our annual Wisest Buys Awards. Each year, we select our favorite products in a number of popular categories.
Our team of reviewers has tested the most popular knife sharpeners, coming to our own conclusions about which product is the absolute best for your kitchen.
To decide on our award winner in the knife sharpeners category, we considered the following criteria:
- Easy for beginners to use
- Includes safety features
- Precise sharpening angle
- Works quickly on all knives
- Won’t scratch or damage knives
