Always enthralled by knife sharpening, Friel included in his list the invention of a truly effective electric knife sharpener that would work on a wide variety of knives, particularly, fine quality gourmet knives. He rescued a 20-year-old set of Gerber knives from a closet. They were a present from his wife June, and to his great frustration, he had never been able to put a satisfactory edge on them.
With fierce determination and a personal deadline of three years to show himself adequate progress on the project, Friel set to work in a basement laboratory and then sought the assistance of other professionals. "They were the nucleus of the EdgeCraft team," recalls Friel. He created thirteen prototypes before he came up with one that satisfied him. Soon after its introduction, the Chef's Choice Diamond Hone Sharpener earned the acclaim of food experts and chefs worldwide, including Pierre Franey, Jacques Pépin and the late Craig Claiborne.
Friel compares the day he left DuPont to follow his second career to the day he walked away from Johns Hopkins University after earning a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering."Unlike the day I left Johns Hopkins, when I left DuPont I could proceed with the knowledge and confidence gained from some 40 years of hands-on experience," Friel recalls. "I saw a need and I had the confidence that I could deliver."
Great waffler with minor cons!
Diane from North York, ON – Verified Buyer– Top 500 Reviewer
Got this waffler expecting a Belgian waffler. It is NOT. The squares are a lot more shallow than a classic Belgian waffler. BUT it makes great tasting waffles , PERFECT waffles. It is very sturdy and well built. Latch is strong and non stick coating lives up to an A+ grade. It consumes 900Watts and makes two larger waffles which turn out restaurant grade.. The stainless steel is easy to clean and the latch is strong. What could one ask more out of a waffle maker? Not so quick. The back of the waffler has a material and coil/spring coated wire. Not great if you get a spill on it. The latch is the same. Arm yourself with a cotton swab if you put too much batter and tonnes of patience as the latch is difficult to clean. I still gave it a 5 star because the waffles turn out perfect BUT I still feel the maker could change the construction of the latch and back to avoid wasting time for cleaning them up after use. I wish this waffler had deeper squares. I am keeping it as my present waffler has a flimsy latch and if it gives in this one will be the replacement and backup. .
hard to find

Most waffle makers are Belgian waffles now. This is not as good as my old faithful waffle maker, but it gets close
Best regular waffle maker

I've been looking for a regular waffle maker. It seems most are belgium waffle waffle makers. This waffle maker fits the bill exactly. The non-stick finish is high quality. The entire appliance is first rate quality. I have no cons to report.
