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."
super & high quality hot pot!

This is a superb stainless steel kettle and exactly what I was looking for in a hot pot. I had seen remarks that the lid didn't fit right, but those postings are quite old. So, I called the company, and they assured me that the lid works well and they've had no returns or other issues. I ordered it with assurance that the warranty is good for 1 year. I'm very happy with the Hot water kettle & would recommend it to anyone looking for a stainless steel kettle. It was on a deal, and the company offered free S/H in addition. HIGH MARKS!

This pot works, heating water quite fast, and the opening is quite big, but it could be better. The plastic lid feels flimsy and it is a bit hard to open and I'm concerned about durability. The auto-stop works, but that means also that the pot doesn't keep the water boiling long. There is a hole inside to show level of water on a clear gauge (on the side of the pot where the handle is).

Heats up very fast - better than stove or microwave. A little sloppy pouring - that just might be me!
excellent & perfect pot!
care4u from San Luis Obispo, CA
This is a superb & quality pot & stainless steel interior! The former reviews on the web are old and obviously from a former model - as the lid opens & closes perfectly. The pot doubles as a great item in our camp kitchen for quick 'Cup a Soup'! Highly recommend this cooker.
A pot suitable for college student's dorm life
NC Mom from Charlotte, NC – Verified Buyer
It is good and convenient for making a last night quick meal or soup, especially during the cold winter days. The only concern is, it is a bit too noisy while cooking ( might wake up roommate...).
