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 idea for appetizers
Cheryl from Mount Bethel, PA – Verified Buyer
Have not yet used this, bought for our catering business. Seems like a very well built product. Look forward to offering some very creative appetizers with this.
Works very well
Jerry from Kirkland, WA – Verified Buyer
This is easier to use than I thought it would be. Clean up is no problem, just don't scratch it. I wouldn't let kids use it though.
Made hundreds of cones for a wedding
Susan the mother of the bride from Conway, AR – Verified Buyer
Used the cone-maker to make hundreds of mini cones used at a wedding reception. Cooked and made them during the reception festivities. Guests loved it. Some took a turn at making their own then went over to get the ice cream while the cone was still warm. The smell of the cones being cooked was wonderful. No problems were noted. Easy to use. Easy clean-up.
