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."
Pretty Good for What it Is

I have not used this slicer with its bundled serrated blade, rather I bought one of the accessory non-serrated blades, which is supposed to be better for fine slicing. This appears to work well for fine slicing of already cooked food, such as turkey breast. It works less well for raw meat (from my own experience), such as slicing partially frozen tenderloin for making Carpaccio of Beef.

I was extremely pleased with the quality of this slicer. I had a 3 day old piece of spoon roast in the refrigerator and this machine sliced it paper thin with virtually no effort at all. The unit is easy to clean as it disassembles and reassembles with ease. The price was more than fair and the shipping was free and arrived in just two days.
At home or camping

This food slicer has been amazing. It could be prepping a party at home for 20 or at the campground for 4. Slices everything from carrots, potatoes and tomatoes to any meat you have smoked or grilled. For the price and the usability it has been a 5 star plus for us.
Versatility is the keyword here.

We bake our own home made bread, and I was looking around for a decent quality electric knife for slicing it. In my online searching I came across a video demonstration of the Chef's Choice 610 model food slicer. Well, now you know what 'Serendipity' means, - we looked for a bread slicer, and found the best all round, (any) food slicer I have ever used. I was a little skeptical about its ability to do a good slicing job on bread, because of its varying textures, - I needn't have worried, - this machine will do it all; from Ham, Roasts, pork, beef, corned beef, bread, - you name it! Another added 2 bonuses, Excellent safety lock to guard the blade when not in use, and quick and easy dismantling for cleaning. Yes, Like I said, 'Versatility' is the keyword! It really lives up to its reputation and I would recommend it to anyone.
Nice price, great product!

This food slicer is exactly what I was looking for! It's not just for meat but can be used for much more-and the price was much less than others that did the same thing!
Does a great job

It does the job

My primary purpose for this unit was to cut homemade bread created in a bread maker. My research reflected that not all slicers do this well.
JJ from Deer Lake, NL, Canada– Verified Buyer
I only used this once so I don't have much experience with it. In fact, this is my first food slicer. I read many reviews and checked out a few videos and decided this one was the best of all the others I've looked at. This one is built very well and it is fairly easy to clean. It should be supplied with the non-serrated blade. This is the reason for the 4 stars. [...] buying from here was a little cheaper than buying from a Canadian retailer.
This is the best!
Susan from Monroe, GA– Verified Buyer
I bought this slicer for my husband, who loves to cook, this Christmas and he LOVES it! Easy to use..easy to clean! He likes the idea of the tray that catches the meat as its sliced in a uniform slice. The old slicer we had took nearly an hour to clean (which I did ) and.......he (yes.....he!) cleaned in about 5 mins.! The slices are neat and clean....we used it with a pork roast tonight and it was perfect! We do more meat than bread, so Im anxious to try other meats as well. If anyone is wondering how good this is....all I can say is my hubby is very pleased and looking forward to utilizing this tool with future creations! Thanks...this is a great product!
Chefs Choice Electric Food Slicer
daniel from charlotte, NC– Verified Buyer
We bought an inferior brand before this and I took 4 slices off of a ham and it died. I did a whole pork roast recently and the Chef's Choice worked flawlessly. Spend the extra money on the straight blade - does a much job than the serrated on meats. I highly recommend this product.
