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."

This is an authentic Belgian style waffle maker which works wonderfully, cooks perfectly and evenly, and makes for very little and easy clean-up. Potential buyers should keep in mind that Belgian style waffles are typically thinner with just a slightly crisp exterior - these will be considerably less "clunkier" that your average Eggo waffle. This waffle maker delivers on the traditional Belgian style stuff.
I didn't "waffle" on this one!

Actually we waffle with this one all the time. This was a gift for my husband who loves waffles. It works beautifully with its automatic heat setting and self timer. Makes breakfast or brunch a breeze.
Easy to use

This was a great buy, I got it on clearance and was expecting it to be somewhat beat up but it was still in the original packaging, arrived fast than I expected and I love it

I was so excited to get this waffle iron. It makes the thin waffles which are super hard to find and the recipe to change pancake mix to waffle mix is delicious. I would definitely recommend this.

This is my first waffle iron and I love it. I did not know that waffles could be so easy! We love the hearts too. The waffles come out very easily. Be sure and let the rest on a cooling rack so moisture does not accumulate on the bottom surface.
