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."

I love waffles and I wanted to purchase a quality waffle maker as a "gift" for my wife. (The gift that keeps on giving to me). America's Test Kitchen rated this waffle maker with their highest recommendation. After several uses I can see why. It makes perfect waffles and the cleanup is very easy. The only drawback I can see is I wish there was a holder for the cord built into the base of the machine, but that would be very nit-picky.
Waffle's at there best

I really love this waffle maker. I own another type of maker but this one is the best. I did some research and found a friend who owned one before I made a decision to buy. I have to say it was great to sample a waffle cooked on the product before buying. I'm really pleased.
So glad I chose this one!

I have never had a waffle iron before and after reading reviews all over the internet I finally chose this one. I am glad I did! The timer, lights, and beeper work just like they should. The adjustable dial works just right, as well. I have to agree with one commenter who said it is not a real belgian waffle. If you want a thick one like you get at a make-it-yourself hotel buffet this isn't the one. For a belgian waffle, it's thin. But it is still delicious, and perfectly cooked. I find it easy to clean. The only way it could possibly be easier to clean is if you could remove the plates. Honestly, though, just a wipe with a paper towel will take off anything. It's also quick and quite solid to store upright on its side without tipping. Cord storage is tedious, however, even for someone like me who usually enjoys little things like that. I've been refusing to twist it up in the storage area because I'm frankly afraid of what it will do to the cord and possibly render it useless before its time. I would definitely recommend this waffle iron to a friend.

The new one works great. The first one had a manufacturer defect. I chatted with someone in your service department and I got a new replacement right out.

I wanted to smell sweet waffles getting crispy in my own house, so I ordered this waffle iron. I read lots of reviews about lots of waffle irons all over the internet, and this was the one for me. Im so glad I did my research. We love it! The variable settings are great for our big family. Everyone gets a waffle just the way they want it.

Light and easy to use. Waffles could be deeper and larger, more like my 35 year old maker that finally started sticking. Overall satisfactory.
90 seconds is absolutely correct!

As a B&B owner, I need to have breakfast items ready on time, and this waffle maker does exactly what the manufacturer says it will do. I'm especially pleased that I can switch from crisp outside/moist inside to crisp all the way through, depending on what my guests want. It's a perfect waffle every time, and I don't have to condition it before each use!
Adequate description, but wordy

the best I've used, and although quick it is small.
Do not buy.

I was not impressed with this product at all. I do not understand the high ratings it received. It makes thin waffles and if you put too much batter in, the batter spills all over and the design is ridiculous to clean. Buy the Waring Pro Waffle Iron, much better.
