KitchenIQ Electric Knife Sharpener
KitchenIQ is proud to offer an easy to use and effective electric knife sharpener
that incorporates both mechanical and manual sharpening elements in one unit.
This unique combination provides a broad capability to easily sharpen dull blades
and maintain razor sharp edges.
The mechanical sharpening slot features a diamond coated sharpening wheel and
blade guides to hold your knife at the correct angle during mechanical sharpening.
The micron-sized, monocrystalline diamonds used to coat the sharpening wheel
are selected for their unique cutting performance and are applied to the surface
of the wheel by a highly technical process that guarantees longer wheel life,
uniform cutting, and minimum heat buildup so that damage or distempering of
your blade does not occur.
After sharpening both sides of your blade with the diamond sharpening wheel,
KitchenIQ recommends using the crossed ceramic stones in the manual finishing
slot for final edge honing. Crossed ceramic stones create a preset sharpening
angle that lightly hones both sides of your blade at the same time. Ceramic
stones remove any burrs left on your blade from mechanical sharpening and put
a razor sharp edge on your blade. They can also be used for a quick touch up of
an already sharp blade or to sharpen serrated blades.
Your KitchenIQ Electric Knife Sharpener will sharpen knives of alloy, carbon, or
stainless steel. It is designed to sharpen kitchen and most sporting knives. Do
not attempt to sharpen scissors or any blade that does not fit freely in the blade

Step 1. Clean all food or dirt off your blade. Never sharpen a dirty knife blade as
this could cause the sharpener to malfunction or damage to the sharpening wheel.
Step 2. Insert the plug on the end of the power cord into a standard electrical
Step 3. Place the unit on a flat, sturdy surface and turn the unit ON by pressing
the ON/OFF switch. You will notice two sharpening slots for electric sharpening,
one for each side of your blade. Select the sharpening
Fig. 1
slot you would like to use first.
Step 4. Hold the knife securely by the handle as you
would in normal usage and position the heel of the blade
over the selected sharpening slot. Insert the blade into
the upper portion of the sharpening slot then rotate the
handle of the knife down (slightly raising the tip of the
blade) until the heel of the blade contacts the sharpening
wheel (Fig. 1).
As soon as contact is made and you hear the distinctive
Fig. 2
grinding sound, pull the blade at a consistent speed
through the sharpening slot using light, downward
To sharpen all the way out to the tip of the blade, lift up
on the knife handle slightly as the curved portion of the
blade is drawn through the blade guides. (Fig. 2).
CAUTION: Always sharpen your knife blade from the heel to the tip of the
blade. Never insert the tip of the knife blade into the blade guide first or push
your knife blade through the sharpening slot. This could damage the knife
sharpener and/or your knife.
NOTE: Due to some handle designs, you may not be able to sharpen the
entire length of the blade using the mechanical sharpening wheel. KitchenIQ
recommends using the manual sharpening slot in these limited cases.
The speed at which you pull the blade through the sharpening slots will
determine the amount of metal removed from the edge. A very slow pass will
remove more metal than a quick pass. When drawing the blade through the
slots, allow approximately one second for each 25 mm of blade. For example,
if sharpening a knife with a 152 mm blade, you should take approximately six
seconds for each pass.
Step 5. Move to the other sharpening slot and repeat this process to sharpen the
other side of your blade.
Step 6. Continue alternating passes between the two slots at the recommended
speed until your knife blade is sharp. For best results and to reduce excessive
wheel wear, do the same number of pulls on each side of your blade. Normally
10 passes on each side of the knife will sharpen a dull knife blade, however:
knives made of extremely hard steel may require additional pulls on both sides
of the knife blade to achieve sharpness.
Step 7. Pull through manual finishing slot 10 times or until the blade is sharp.
(See Manual finishing/honing instructions below.)
Step 8. Check the sharpness of your blade by cutting a piece of paper or a fruit
or vegetable.
If additional sharpening is needed repeat process until sharp but make sure to
clean your knife before continuing. If not turn off power to the machine.
Manual Finishing/Honing - Straight or Serrated Blades
Your KitchenIQ electric knife sharpener includes a manual finishing slot that
enhances the flexibility of the mechanical system. This sharpening element
can be used independently from the mechanical sharpening wheel to achieve
a renewed edge or in conjunction with the mechanical sharpener to speed and
refine the results. For example, a blade may benefit from just a few pulls through
the manual finishing slot to touch-up an otherwise sharp edge.
KitchenIQ recommends using the manual finishing slot to touch-up already
sharp knives, polish the edge of your blade after sharpening with the diamond
sharpening wheel, or sharpen serrated edges. The manual finishing slot has two
specially shaped triangular ceramic stones that are designed to lightly hone both
sides of a straight edge blade or sharpen serrated blades without damaging the
serrations. The ceramic stone will follow the shape of the serrations on your
blade as you pull the knife through the slot. The characteristic scallops of a
serrated blade are usually only ground on one side of the knife blade. For this
reason, it is not recommended that serrated blades be sharpened on both sides
using the mechanical sharpening wheel. This will considerably alter the original
geometry of the blade.
When using the manual finishing slot for a quick touch-up of already sharp
blades or to polish the edge after sharpening on the diamond sharpening wheel,
the crossed ceramic stones will align your edge and lightly hone both sides
of your blade with each pull through the sharpening slot. We recommend
always using the manual finishing slot to complete the sharpening process after
sharpening your straight edge blade on the diamond sharpening wheel.
Step 1. Hold the blade straight up and down and center the heel of the blade in
the bottom of the crossed ceramic stones.
Step 2. Starting at the heel of the blade, pull the blade
through the crossed ceramic stones while applying
light, downward pressure (never back and forth). Lift
at the end of the stroke to sharpen the tip of your blade
(Fig. 3).
Step 3. Repeat this process 10 times or until the blade
is sharp.

Maintenance & Care
There is little maintenance required with your KitchenIQ electric sharpener. To
clean the exterior housing, unplug the unit from the electrical outlet and simply
wipe with a damp cloth.
• Do not use a powdered abrasive cleaner to clean sharpener.
• Do not use any lubricant or water to clean the abrasive wheel.
• Do not use a lubricant on any other component.
Periodically, the clean out door on the bottom of the sharpener should be opened
and cleaned. Also try to clear any remaining particles from the collection area
inside the housing before replacing the door.
Cleaning or Replacement of Ceramic Stones
The ceramic stones should be periodically cleaned to refresh their abrasive
qualities using a scrub brush and common cleansing kitchen powder. If after
cleaning you feel the ceramic stones are still not sharpening properly they
should be replaced. For replacement stones and installation instructions contact
KitchenIQ customer service department at (+1) 501-321-2244 or visit

Symptom: The sharpener will not start when initially plugged into electrical
Cause: Sharpener or electrical cord could be damaged or malfunctioning.
Solution: Return your sharpener and receipt to the place of purchase for
Symptom: Sharpener stops running while in use.
Cause: Sharpener has a built in motor thermostat as a safety feature. It protects
sharpener from overheating if left on accidentally for a long period or if being
used improperly.
Solution: If the thermostat shuts down the motor, unplug the sharpener and wait
about one hour for the motor to cool down, and the sharpener will restart. If
motor still will not re-start, return sharpener to place of purchase.
Symptom: Diamond wheel stops removing metal.
Solution: Diamond Break-In Period – The initial aggressive cutting speed of the
Diamond Sharpening Wheels will slow with use. At the same time, the abrasive
finish will improve. Do not be confused by this break in process because it
is normal and should be expected. The diamond wheels are breaking in, NOT
wearing out.
Symptom: Ceramic stones stop sharpening.
Cause: The ceramic stones will lose their sharpening ability over time, thus
reducing their effectiveness.
Solution: Ceramic stones should be cleaned or replaced. See the Cleaning or
Replacement of Ceramic Stones section of this manual.
Q: How often should I sharpen my knives?
A: Sharpen your knife before each use if you want to maintain a razor sharp edge.
After extensive use, if you have honed the knife blade and it no longer slices food
with ease, use the electric sharp­ening wheel plus the manual finishing slot to put
a new razor sharp edge on your blade.
Q: How can I tell if my knife is sharp?
A: Use it to slice food. If the knife does not slice food with ease, it needs additional
Q: My knife is not sharp and I’ve gone through the whole knife sharpening
process. What am I doing wrong?
A: Although unusual, there are times when you have to repeat both sharpening
stages more than once or make more passes through the mechanical sharpening
slots. This may occur during the first sharpening of a knife or if a knife was
sharpened incorrectly by another process. It may also occur when sharpening
blades made of tempered steel, which are extremely hard, such as some hunting
You can use the KitchenIQ electric knife sharpener to sharpen these type of
knives, but you may have to repeat the process several times or make numerous
passes through the mechanical sharpening slots (in excess of 20 times or more
for extreme cases). This extended process will only be necessary the first time
you use the sharpener for this type of blade. Thereafter, you will be able to
sharpen the blade following the normal sharpening procedures.
Q: Sometimes the sharpening wheel stalls when I am drawing the knife through
the blade guides. What causes this?
A: The knife sharpener is designed so that very little effort is needed to draw the
blade through the sharpening slots. If excessive downward pressure is applied
to the knife as it is being pulled through the sharpening slots, the sharpening
wheel will stall.
Q: How do I get an even edge on my blade?
A: Always do an equal number of strokes on both sides of the blade for best
results. Always sharpen from heel to tip, never back and forth. Remember to
lift up slightly on the handle as the curved por­tion of the blade is drawn through
the sharpening slots.
Q: Occasionally I see sparks when sharpening my knives. What causes this?
A: At a professional knife sharpening service, certain blades with high carbon
content (usually higher quality knives) sometimes will spark or produce a stream
of sparks when they come in contact with the sharpening wheel. Your KitchenIQ
Electric Knife Sharpener uses the same type of sharpen­ing wheel that the
professionals use. Therefore, you can expect to see similar sparking when you
sharpen blades with high carbon content. This is normal.
Q: Can I sharpen serrated blades, scissors, or other blades with my KitchenIQ
Electric Knife Sharp­ener?
A: Your KitchenIQ electric knife sharpener will sharpen straight edge blades of
alloy, carbon, or stainless steel in either the mechanical or manual sharpening
slots. It will also sharpen serrated edge blades, but only in the manual sharpening
slot. Do not attempt to sharpen scissors or any blade that does not fit freely into
the sharpening slots.
Q: My sharpener produces a loud vibrating sound. Why is this?
A: Your KitchenIQ Electric Knife Sharpener uses a rapidly rotating diamond
coated sharpening wheel to sharpen knives. Because of the speed of rotation, a
vibrating sound may be heard. This is normal and to be expected.
