I received this product free in exchange for an honest review, but the opinions I state are all mine.
First the sharpener is lightweight so I liked that immediately. But would it sharpen a knife. I pulled out some cutlery that really needed to be sharpened. I followed the instructions in the manual that came along with the product. And it did sharpen the dull knife. I was pleased. But would it sharpen a knife that was already sharp. I tested a newer knife. I didn't really notice a big difference, but the knife was already sharp. And I don't own a ceramic knife. (But I would love one if someone wants to donate one to my cause.) So it definitely worked on a dull knife which really suited my needs.
As I sharpened the knife, the product was easy to handle. I really found that the rubber handle made it easier to hold onto. And the rubber bottom did stop the product from slipping while I was using it. I liked that.
I like that this product also provided a small manual with instructions on how to use it. I may not have used the product correctly without this manual. So it was a definite plus.
This sharpener is priced at $13.99, which was a little higher than some other knife sharpeners on Amazon, but only by a dollar or two. And it does come with Amazon Prime. Free shipping to those of us with that. Some of the other knife sharpeners did not have a rubber handle, which was something that I really liked about this product.
I do recommend this product to individuals who enjoy cooking. Frequent use of your knives dulls them. And this is an easy way to get them sharpened. Is it professional grade? I don't know. But it certainly met my needs, and I'm glad that I have it.
I knew I needed to sharpen my favorite knife when I had trouble cutting a tomato. I already own one those steel sharpening rods, but this is much simpler. With this sharpener, the only thing you need to remember is move the knife in one direction only - no back and forth. It's so easy to use and not to mention safer since it sits securely on the counter.
It has three slots: coarse, fine, and ceramic. Coarse is for blunt steel knives. Fine is to polish afterwards. And finally there's the ceramic for ceramic knives only. Never sharpen a serrated blade. Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase. I can maintain my knives with ease.

I love this knife sharpener!
My husband and I consolidated households when we got married 10 years ago, and we must have a good 20 to 30 kitchen knives between us. But we've never owned a knife sharpener and have never actually sharpened any of our knives. So, they have always been REALLY dull and we've always talked about getting a knife sharpener and working on them as something we "needed" to do.
Recently, I was offered the opportunity to try this knife sharpener at a reduced price in exchange for my honest review. So, of course, I jumped at the chance!
The first thing that impressed me is that the sharpener has three separate slots, clearly labeled with the intended use of each (ceramic knives, coarse knives, and fine knives). It also comes with an entire instruction booklet that helps you figure out which type of blade is which, and gives very detailed instructions on use and maintenance of the sharpener.
This is particularly impressive as the sharpener is very quality, well designed, and super easy to use. You simply put the blade into the sharpener, heel first, and pull the knife through a few times. It REALLY makes a difference; my husband and I had a great time doing "before and after"s on each of our knives as we sharpened them. They come out QUITE sharp afterward.
The other thing that impressed me a lot was the heft of the knife sharpener, and how well it fits in your hand and stays in place on the counter during use. Like I mentioned before, it strikes me as a very high quality product. I think it will last us for many, many years and knife sharpenings, and I'm so glad we got it!!
Our kitchen knives have been around for a loooooong time now - TOO long, really...they were so dull that I'm pretty sure that they no longer qualified as knives. As they're a "beginner" (ie, the first one we got when we were super young newlyweds and beyond broke) set of stainless steel knives, and I was ready to chuck the whole block after trying to cut up everything for dinner the other night - however, I am still not precisely rich (and, let me be honest with you here, I can err on the stingy side - hence owning this $40 full set of knives for 10 years), and took a deep breath to calm down just long enough to find this little sharpener and order it.
This knife sharpener is the perfect size - small enough to slip into a utensil drawer or tuck into a nook next to your knife block, but big enough to allow anyone the room to properly grip the handle, and allow for three sharpening slots (ceramic, coarse, and fine - the last two of which are for stainless steel). It's really light and easy to move around, but it still has a heft/weightiness to it that makes it feel super secure when you're in the process of sharpening - the base also assists in keeping in it place, both by having the non-slip pad on the underside, and by allowing you to lean your weight down (just a little, of course) onto the hand that is gripping the tool. It also seems to be of good good quality, as though it will last (although I obviously can't attest to this either way at this point).
As to the sharpening (I can only rate the coarse and fine slots, as I don't own any ceramic knives/tools) - WOOHOO! First off, there is a nice little instruction booklet that comes with this sharpener; it sounds silly to mention, but you'd be surprised how many gadgets (especially for the kitchen) show up without instructions, and you end up completely lost. So after running through the sharpening process, I tried out one of my dullest knives by attempting to cut up a tomato - an utter nightmare without a sharp blade (the sharper, the better!). That ol' piece of junk sliced through that sucker like a brand new more expensive knife! I mean, I'm not going to act like it made my knives magically sushi grade, or even chef's grade, or anything, but now my super duper cheap-o set from a decade ago is waaaaaaaay more than worthy for a vast majority of those using their knives around the home.
All in all, super fan of this kitchen gadget. Especially at this price point, I really can't recommend it enough! If your knives are new/not dull yet, I even recommend getting one preemptively. I seriously don't know how I lived without one for so long...should've got this years and years ago.

I did receive a sample of this product at a discounted rate, in exchange for my unbiased and honest review of this item. The views expressed in this review are my personal opinions, and your results may be different. I have not been compensated for this review, and would be happy to try answering any questions that you may have, based on my experiences.
I purchased the SimpleTaste sharpener to sharpen all my kitchen knives. I currently don’t have a sharpener and most of my knives are very dull. This sharpener looks very versatile in that it can sharpen both steel and ceramic blades. I use to have a Sharpener rod which did very well, but somehow I lost it a few years back.
The sharpener arrived in a purple retail box with a pictorial representation of the sharpener on the box. On the box it stated it was suitable for Stainless or Ceramics knives, has a non-slip base and ergonomic handle design. Also it notes that the sharpener is Not for serrated or scissors and should Not be put in the dishwasher. Inside the box was the sharpener in a plastic bag and manual. The manual discussed the introduction, Operation and Maintenance of the sharpener. The manual was very clear in describing how to use it. If the blades are very blunt then use the coarse groove. Using only slight downward pressure, run the blade from heel to its point through the slot. In order to polish and remove excess burrs, place the blade in the fine sharpening slot, and without using ANY pressure, run the blade from its heel to its point through the slot three to five times.
I sharpened all my knives using the instructions above and each one is now very sharp. Take note that there will be metal shavings on the sharpener and the knife when you are done. Make sure to wash the knife to ensure you don’t get metal fillings in your food. I tapped the sharpener on its side to get the fillings out of it. Remember Do Not wash the sharpener per the instructions. Also note that you may want to use a cutting board under the sharpener to prevent accidently cutting your counter. When the knife tip comes off the sharpener it tends to drop down and hit the counter. Another note, make sure your hand that is used to hold the sharpener is furthest away from the sharpening grooves to prevent accidently cutting your thumb.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this knife to others to purchase. I have found it to be very easy to use and way to bring new life to my old knives.

Review of SimpleTaste Non-Slip Kitchen Knife Sharpener 3-in-1 Manual System for All-Sized Household Knives, 3 Sharpening Process, Non-slip Sponge Mats and Ergonomic Design with a Black/Chrome Stylish Finish
I have two knife sets in my kitchen. I always wanted a knife sharpener and purchased this item from 1byone. I was hoping that this would sharpen my serrated knives, but the directions say this is not intended for that. However, I still have plenty of pairing knives that need sharpening.
I have had this knife sharpener for the past week. My husband has sharpened his pocket knives and is very satisfied. In fact, he has gone around the house looking for other pocket knives and scissors that he can sharpen. He has been having a blast with this sharpener. I worry that the blades are now too sharp, but we will just have to be careful.
I have used these on my kitchen scissors and pairing knives. This knife sharpener is so easy to use. I just simply put the rear of the blade in the sharpener and gently pull back. That is it! I usually repeat this process about four times since my knives are so dull. The bottom of the sharpener has a non-slip backing and it does not move while you are sharpening. In addition, there is a handle to hold on to. This sharpener has made such a difference. I can actually cut and slice with ease!
Overall we are thrilled with this Simple Taste knife sharpener. I was able to purchase this product at a slight discount in exchange for my honest opinion. I can assure you that you just got it! Good Luck!
For this simple taste non- slip kitchen knife sharpener my first word is "WOW". I Just pushing 4 to 6 times and my knife is like new even for me it is hard to believe my self. I was frosting buy many kinds of knife because after using few moths all knife are same does not matter how much I paid for them, all are blunt. Now I am happy I got this . I got this product on time. IN fact, just in three days with perfect package. There are four different different sharpener function.
Always hold the knife perpendicular to the knife sharpener while sharpening at an angle of 90 degrees.
Clean and dry the knives before and after sharpening.
Most Important thing:
ALWAYS SHARPEN IN ONE DIRECTION.
Lightweight but sturdy
Easy grip handle
Very easy to use
Worked very well on my stainless steel knives.
Easy to store.
I tried to cut a pineapple before sharpening and they were so dull that I couldn't cut through the skin. Once I sharpened them I barely even had to hold the pineapple to cut it.
