The Ultimate Edge 10N 10-Inch Standard Diamond Sharpening Steel – So-so

Work well with minimal effort.

Really good sharpens great last for quite awhile.

Worked great, did as i hoped. Coarse enough to sharpen my stainless knives, which are a pain to re-sharpen with fine sharpening steels.

I am writing a review after using this product for a few months now. Despite the self-proclaimed hype about sharpening knives, this steel does not work better than my other one from wushtof. The only thing i like better about this one is the fact that it is longer 12′ (compared to my 10′ wushtof). Also, this steel started to rust (yes, rust) at the top end near the plastic cap. Sorry, i wanted to like this but it definitely did not not meet my expectations from the other reviews and the product description.

Their was nothing to not like a out the product.

The diamond coating doesn’t last well.

  • Fastest Sharpener in the West and can be used on glass as well
  • Great edge tune up
  • works well but poorly built

It does the job and makes it easy to keep razor edges on my knives.

Though use to round vs oval, finally a coarse steel with great grit.

Very nice to resharpen knives.

Fine enough for honing and just coarse enough for all around sharpening. Plan to order other sizes and styles.

Edited 12/31/2011: my son has finished his apprenticeship, and he is now the head butcher in our local grocery store. He still uses this to sharpen his best knives. My son is apprenticing under the tutelage of a butcher, and his mentor recommended an oval sharpener. My son says it works well for sharpening the knives he uses during his workday.

This is the second purchase of this particular brand of sharpening steel. They do wear out after a while, but in comparison to other brands, this one seems to last and last. The 600 grit results in a fairly smooth cutting edge. I don’t use this diamond sharpening steel every time the knife dulls. Instead i use a metal sharpening steel to true the edge of blade. When that process no longer works to sharpen the knife, i then use the diamond sharpening steel to remove metal and put on a new edge. I’ve bought other diamond sharpening steels from amazon, but this is by far my favorite.

I gave this as a christmas present so i haven’t used it myself. The person to whom it was given was quite impressed with it.

I prefer the flat diamond steel over the round type; much faster blade restoration imo. I’m a personal chef and bought this to add to my traveling kit; it’s not as wide as the one i have at home but it does the trick. I do what one of my culinary school instructors taught me; every time i use my knife i give it 5 strokes on one side of the blade, then 5 on the other. Then 4, and 4; 3, and 3, etc.

I have inexpensive knives and this tool made them perform like those used by professional chefs. Only takes 6-8 passes to get a very sharp edge. Definitely makes cooking easier now.

Works just like it’s supposed to work. I’d definitely recommend it to a friend. Nice handle, puts a great edge on my knives.

I bought this for my husband for father’s day after he had used a friend’s. Thanks for carrying this item.

10 inch by 1/2 inch oval, 600 grit diamond

It was excellent and easy to use.

Inexpensive and easy to use. All my kitchen knives are now sharp as razors. After using it often for more than 10 years it takes a bit longer to obtain the edge i like so i just ordered a replacement.

I have lots of knives this works great, buy this rough one and just don’t push too hard to finish the job.

This is the first sharpener of this type for me. As with all sharpening getting right angle is important. The very fine diamond surface gives a good feel (feedback) so you can keep the angle more easily than with other sharpeners i have used. I just hope this thing lasts a while. Sometimes this sort of surface comes off too soon.

This product is awesome in my kitchen. This is the best knife sharpener out of all that i have owned. I actually bought three of them. Gave one to my boyfriend for christmas and kept the other as a spare for when i need a new one.

. This rod keeps my edges like razors. . I was somewhat disappointed with the quality of the materials used in construction. Everything from the plastic used in the handle to the grit itself. The entire piece just feels flimsy in your hand and i feel like if it slipped away from me and hit a hard floor it might break. The abrasive surface does an excellent job on my blades but for what little i use this piece, i already feel like it is wearing out and don’t expect this tool to last long. I don’t abuse it when i use it. I don’t want to be too negative.

Fits most standard knife blocks; made of microcrystalline diamonds bonded with nickel to oval steel shaft

I have used these for years in the kitchen and also for elk and deer hunting. The sharpener is small enough that you can carry it in the field when hunting and it also stores easily in the kitchen. I use only high quality knives and this sharpener keeps them razor sharp. I would recommend this to anyone who knows how to use a sharpening steel. The diamond works faster and better than any regular steel sharpener.

I have the fine edge sharpening steel and decided to buy this one. It definitely gets the job done and done well. I don’t know about the other ppl and them saying it doesn’t work. I’ll tell u this i’m a cook so i use my knife a lot and my coworkers all want to borrow it.

I cut meat for our local grocery store and know the importance of having a really sharp knife. I was told about the diamond sharpening steel by a coworker that had gotten his at ‘kiss the cook’ he paid $30 plus for his. Being on a tight budget right now due to rising gas prices i wasn’t able to go and buy the one he was telling me about so i searched amazon. I found this sharpener/steel and decided to try it. This item arrived today and immediately got out my work knives. The were super sharp in no time and it didn’t take much effort on my part at all. My arms will not get as sore now that i have the ability to keep my knives sharp. This sharpener is highly recommended.

Got this, a fine and a steel. Knives are so sharp you can shave with them. If you hate a dull knife as much as i do, i highly recommend them.

This is not sharpening steel, it is an amazingly convenient sharpener. Over the years i have used the laski system, hard and soft arkansas stones, but finally settled on a diamond stone/plate. When i saw this ‘steel’ i was intrigued. It is everything i’d hoped for. I run it under the water before each sharpening. When i am not happy with a knife, this steel is hanging right there. 10 seconds and the knife, big or little, is sharp again. As an additional benefit, the instructions noted that it can be used on glass.

Quick cutting – removes material fast — coarse edge is best on utility knifes.

Puts a great edge on some of my older knives. It’s a more aggressive steel which works well on knives that need to be re-edged.

Works with serrated knives; also files glass, crystal, and china

For the money, this sharpener works great and puts an incredibly sharp and lasting edge on all of my knives in a very short amount of time.

Already sharpened my knives and it is working great.

He was very happy to receive this knife sharpener and is very pleased with the results he gets when he uses it.

Very coarse fast cut which i wanted. You do need a finer grit to finish/touch up every day though. I also have one of these at my wood shop, much better than anything sold for woodworking on shaper knives.

Cook’s illustrated rated this sharpening steel as the best, and i think they’re absolutely correct. I have used this steel regularly for the past year or two, and my knives have never come close to staying this sharp before.

I use my knives every day and i don’t like them dull. If you want to remove a lot of metal, put on a bit of pressure and this sharpener will do the job. Barely touch the knife to the steel and stroke very gently to fine-tune. This performed better than i expected.

Lightweight, versatile and easy to use

I ordered 2 ultimate edges for friends since i already own myself. They used last elk season and were thrilled with how well and quick edge was brought back to life when skinning animals. Brings edge back with just a few swipes. I’ve carried and used for years as go to knife tune up when skinning elk or deer. It is always in my pack with knives for caring for game. One caution clean knife edge of meat or lard before touch up do to diamond surface will plug up with crud. Soap, water & sponge cleans diamond surface very well. One note if the cook of the house uses the sharpener you may need to buy 2 if you want one in back pack. I keep one in knife drawer at home, better than regular steel.

This is a tool i’ve been wanting for a while. I finally realized my flat stones and diamond sharpening plates wouldn’t enable me to sharpen all my knives, scissors, and such. This tool does and the cost was reasonable.

Treat it gently and it will reward you with sharp knives for a long time.

I used this item over the course of 1 week. It sharpens dull knives really quickly. Hope it last a reasonable time. Will review again in awhile. The ultimate edge 10nc 10-inch coarse diamond sharpening steel.

True diamond coated sharpener, fine enough, but for a razor edge,,,(to shave with) porcelain rods or the like will be needed to ‘hone’ a razor edge on your blade. This is a great sharpener though.

Black & Decker – Slice Toaster Oven – Toaster oven

Nice size not to small or not to big, don’t need to use my big oven, great for 1 or 2 people.

Like the size and the looks. Don’t like the fact that the wire shelf does not pull out when you open the door and have burned myself a couple of times. Guess i’ll have to get use to this. Also, the toaster range is skewed. Keeps burning my toast regardless of where i set it. Replaced an old old procter silex which finally bit the dust.

It’s like trial and error til you get it right great oven.

I purchased this product as i was looking for a white toaster oven/broiler. I like the looks of the product and it fits very well on my counter. The only issue is the toaster–you have to be careful about setting the timer for the toast. If you do not watch it, the toast may burn. My previously b&d toaster oven you just had to push the button down to toast. You did not have to set a time. However i am enjoying the product and i would recommend it.

It does a good job toasting and baking. My only complaint is the lack of resolution on the timer for setting the toaster time. The difference between the ‘light’ and ‘dark’ designation is only 3/8′ along the dial. After more than a month of use i still can’t rely that my setting will not either leave the toast un-toasted or burnt. I need to visually monitor the process.

Replaced an old b&d that was much smaller that i had for about 15 years. The size is perfect and for $39 you just cannot go wrong. Even my wife said i did something right for a change.

  • Black & Decker Toaster Oven Lives up to its name
  • Not badbut
  • Our second purchase of this model

No light makes it hard to see food cooking. There are too many settings to switch between baking and toasting. Wish it was a simpler design.

If, when this product was sent to my niece for a wedding present, the message i wrote had been included, i might know how this oven works. I just found out yesterday, after months since it was sent, that she had no idea who it was from. I do wish that for gifts, they were more careful to insert the messages.

I am really satisfied with my toaster oven…. Beats having to heat up the kitchen to heat a piece of pizza….

We ordered this to replace our previous toaster oven that died after 12 years. Really like the three dial system. You can set the time and temperature while keeping the type of cooking separate. Everything prepared in this toaster oven has come out perfectly. The only thing i don’t like is when you are fixing something that only requires 5 or 6 minutes to cook and you have to turn the dial past the 20 minute mark then move it back. That seems to put a strain on the dial. Wish i could just set the time and not worry about that. Well worth the money paid for it. Got the while finish, really could care less what color it is, as long as it works correctly.

This toaster oven fulfills my need for toast and baking small things like biscuits, but i have a few issues with it. This toaster has a bizarre setting for toast. The third dial at the bottom is where you set the timer for how long your bread will toast. There is a very small margin for where you will decide how dark you want your toast and can burn it easily if your not careful. I also have to flip my toast over and set it again if i want the other side to get brown, otherwise one side will burn and the other comes out about right(which also depends on which height your rack is set). You can also set the timer longer and flip it halfway through at the risk of burning yourself. I remove the silver tray for best toasting. You can cook chicken in this oven but if you do not empty the grease out every so often, the grease that splatters onto the oven will catch on fire. I still have’t been able to clean off the grease stain left behind from this flare up. I won’t be cooking chicken in it again but maybe just to heat up some leftovers at best.

Black and Decker Toaster Oven, TO1675W

Get Toasting!

Large enough for a 9′ pizza, this Black & Decker Toaster Oven (model TO1675W) is a great addition to any kitchen. Convection technology allows for fast, even cooking at up to 450 degrees across dual racks. Even better, its modest size (18.8 x 11.5 x 13.8 inches) allows it to fit in tight spaces.

Convection Baking

I love this toaster oven because it is compact, white, convection, and very sturdy. When my last one broke after 2 years of heavy use, i ordered the same one as a replacement.

Wonderful little toaster oven.

This works just a good as my regular oven for baking. Have to be careful with the toasting. No need to go beyond the lighter feature great for reheating leftover pizza.

I use this a lot for making casseroles that are made for one or two and avoid the big oven when i can.

The timer switch operation could be better. It’s a bit hard to turn and i would prefer the maximum time to be 30 rather than 60 minutes so that one could more accurately set the time as the markings would be spaced farther apart. Other than that, everything works well. I do wish the appliance were smaller, more the size of the black and decker toaster oven that it replaced.

Received on time and looks perfect for me.

Convection oven

Love this little black & decker toaster oven. It was a replacement for an oven that we just worn out.

I took a lot of time to research other toaster ovens before i purchased this one. So far we have baked turkey breast, cookies, chicken nuggets, made toasted cheese sandwiches and pizza in it all with great success. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this product. Thank you to everyone else that has previously reviewed this product. It helped me make my decision and i was not disappointed with it.

So far i have not haven’t had any problems with it.

My old one was burning the toast on one side so decided it was time for a new one. This one is the correct size for my kitchen, is very well built and is user friendly. I have ordered several black and decker products and have been pleased with each and every one. I had shopped in the stores and found none to be of my liking, for they were either the wrong color or the wrong size to sit on top of my counter top. I am very pleased with this purchase.

I like this small toast oven with the easy turntable controls, not like a newer model previously bought from b&d with three round trapezoidal twists that make turning also impossible. The designer should be shot.

This is the third black and decker unit i have purchased over the past ten years. I like the three controls and the size. I can bake 5 potatoes with no problem. I have made biscuits as well in this oven.

Fits up to 6-slices or a 9-inch pizza

The toasting is the weak point,it is real finicky to get toast that does not burn,but for the price it is worth it.

Hard to find toaster ovens at this size in white. Have cooked frozen pizza, lasagna, and have re-heated many other things in it and it works greatthe only complaint is that it is tough to find a good toast setting. The increments from light to dark are close together and it is hard to ‘fine tune’ the dial to get a good setting. Not a big deal, just need to monitor the toast to make sure it doesn’t burn.

I really shopped around before making this purchase and it paid off. I love all the features of my new toaster oven and it’s pretty too. It’s just the right size for counter top. As an oven, it cooks evenly and you can use the top as a plate warmer. And it shuts itself off automatically so you can’t accidentally leave it on longer than you want to. The price was fair too compared to other very pricey toaster ovens.

I am happy with this product at this price. However, the cord is very short, and it gets hot enough on top that it actually melted the bottom of my toaster. It is quiet and lightweight.

This oven is a great purchase. After 4 years of heavy use one of the heating elements burned out of our previous oven and i did not hesitate to buy another. It’s not fancy, but it does what it’s supposed to do and it’s not so large that it takes up an entire counter. It is easy to clean and yes, the top of the cabinet does get hot so don’t put a box of chocolates up there. You aren’t going to replace the oven in your stove with this but it does the job is was made to do. One negative observation: the broiler pan in the first oven was larger and of much heavier construction than the new one. Why do manufactures of just about everything go cheap on something like that?. They probably saved a few cents on each unit. Otherwise it is just as good as the first one.

Great to cook small foods and to keep them warm.

I do like this but i don’t like the fact that for toasting you have to set it past 20 minutes and then go back to your setting you want. I would have gave it 5 stars if it wasn’t for that.

Maximum bake temperature 450-degree f

I was looking for a small, inexpensive oven that can fit on the counter. This b&d toaster oven meets the above criteria. It has been 3 months since my purchase and i baked fish, yam, heated up bread without any issue. I haven’t used it as a toaster yet so can’t comment on that function. All in all, it is a practical compact size oven that serves the purpose.

Plenty of power and does a great job with uniform heat. Spacious interior to cook larger stuff. I cook two cornish hens at the same time with ease.

We had a white black & decker toaster oven for years that we loved, however, it came to the end of its life. Finding a new white toaster oven isn’t easy. Thought we’d give this one a try despite some of the ratings we read. Really like the size & look of this toaster oven, but it don’t like the features as much. Biggest negative is the toasting feature, which we use often. There is no setting for light/dark as our last one had. Also, we’ve only baked once or twice, and that didn’t seem to work so well either.

I live alone and using the big oven just didn’t make sense. My son and daughter-in-law just bought one and really liked it. So here i am enjoying the oven and toaster and not feel like i am using to much elec. The toaster works great on english muffins and bagels. Have used it to cook wings and made foil dinners several. Can cook two nice size ones at a time.

I really like this toaster oven for its versatility. There is even a convection setting which most ovens of this price do not have. There is only one thing i don’t like about it which is that the buttons are quite hard to turn. The raised part going across the middle of each button starts out fine, but quickly tapers to almost nothing so it’s very hard to push with your thumb.

I bought this for my 88-year-old mom. She has not had a toaster oven before. It works well, and she didn’t have any trouble learning how to work it.

60-Minute Timer

Just perfect if you don’t want to heat up your big oven – or your house. Capable of cooking most items you would use an oven for.

LOVATIC Primula Pike Pour Over Coffee Dripper and Carafe Set – Borosilicate Glass – For Light – Works well for hot and cold brew

I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. To be completely honest, i had no idea what i was reviewing when i received the opportunity. Then i opened the box and read the instructions. I felt like it was a lot to do for such little amount of coffee. (i drink several cups a day) then i had to buckle down and do it anyways because i promised to review it. Once i got started, i realized it’s not that difficult. It’s not as easy peasy as my drip coffee maker but that’s because you boil the water instead of your coffee pot doing all of the work. I had never really heard of unbleached coffee filters before and i’m still not sure if this is the cause of the flavor difference or the method of making the coffee that made it taste good but it tasted different, in a good way. I’ve never enjoyed a cup of black coffee before.

This pour over coffee maker is just what i needed to help start my day. Since receiving this pour over coffee maker i have made coffee each morning using this coffee maker. It is so easy to use and my coffee comes out nice and strong just like i like it. In addition cleaning this thing is a breeze. I especially like that i can make coffee in this thing and drink it right out of the pot or pour it into a mug. Furthermore, i also like that the pot contains a handle. This pour over seems to be made with quality materials. Overall i am very pleased with this pour over coffee pot. Note: i received this pour over coffee pot for free in exchange for an unbiased honest review.

I purchased this item because i am not a big coffee drinker, and feel that it would be excessive to purchase an appliance. I found that it makes a great cup of coffee (especially for those who are not experts on pouring techniques and the like), in addition to making hot coffee, i also use it to filter out cold brew coffee. I really like this product and would recommend it for anyone no matter their level of expertise as it is practical and convenient.

The filter holder does not seat firmly, but the coffee made in the all glass dripper tastes clean and fresh.

No tipping over while filling.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Works well for hot and cold brew
  • The filter holder does not seat firmly, but the
  • Stable to use. No tipping over while filling.

Primula pike pour over coffee dripper and carafe set – borosilicate glass – for light, non-bitter drip brewed coffee – easy to use – 20 ounces this is an old fashion way to make coffee but still one of the best ones. You can use it everywhere, very convenient. Great for office, camping, traveling, home, etc. Another good thing is not need energy, helping you to save money. I prefer my coffee very light and with this carafe is possible and taste amazing. Is not messy and with using the disposable paper filters is more easy to clean. I hope you find this review helpful. If you have any questions you can comment below and i will be more than happy to help you.

After receiving this product i was so pleased on the quality of it all. I first made my morning coffee then for afternoon used it to make tea. I love the size and how quickly it makes coffee. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family.

Takes a bit more work of your part to use one of these but the results are worth the extra effort. Pour over coffee drippers really are the way to go if you want to get the best and most flavor out of your coffeeyou can really cater the strength of your coffee to your personal preference and literally make the perfect cup of coffee every single timeit’s so easy to use. Add your grounds to the dripper and pour your boiled water in. I received this product for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I was neither paid nor sponsored for my opinions–positive or otherwise–and all thoughts reflected in this review are solely my own.
