The process was very quick. There is a coarse and fine sharpening step. I ran each knife first through the coarse step. You place your knife in the slot, and gently pull towards you 2-4 times. Then repeat with the fine section. WooLah! Sharp knives.
Apparently some of my knives were very dull, and I did suspect that. It took more like 12 times to pull it through the coarse section before fine tuning the edges on the fine section. But hey, my knives are sharp now, and it save me not only time, but money too. This little gadget is great.
So with Christmas coming up soon, you may want to get this for those on your list, like yourself, who may have dull knives. And don't forget one for you too.
Pros: Works quick and slick. Knives are very sharp. Impressed.
