Knife Sharpener and Cabinet Lighting Reviews
If you're new to my blog, welcome! If you're new you may not know that I've been to culinary school and I love to cook. So when I got the chance ot review a knife sharpener from E-Prance, I jumped at it. My culinary school knives have only ever been sharpened with my steel (the long thing chefs use with their knives). But it was time for them to get a better sharpen. Plus, my steak knives were starting to get really dull. So I was excited to try this out.
It has three slots, emery, steel and ceramic. The emery is for rough sharpening, the wolfram steel is for mild sharpening and the ceramic is for fine honing. The entire device is made from ABS plastic, and offers a firm grip to make sharpening easy. The entire device is very ergonomic and fits nicely in my palm. It seems to be pretty durable. It claims to sharpen all sorts of knives from kitchen knives, camping knives, pocket knives and hunting knives, just to name a few. Of course, I've only used it for kitchen knives.
You can check it out here on Amazon..
The company also sent me a LED Cabinet Lighting which is portable. It can be placed in a cabinet, closet, or anywhere you want extra lighting. It has motion detection, so we figured it'd be perfect for the kitchen. It takes 3AAA batteries (of course they aren't included). So be wary how often the light is used, as the battery could wear out fast (especially if you use a cheaper brand of battery).
It has three modes, on, off, and motion sensing. The light comes with a detatchable holder, which can be used to hang on a nail, thumbtack, small cabinet handle, etc. It will notice when someone walks near it and it turns off after 30 seconds of no movement.
I have to say, my kids decided to take this into their room one night and played with it. I haven't seen it for a few days. So I don't have photos of my own to share! I am planning on buying a few. They're reasonably priced so they'd be perfect for hallways and bathrooms, too!
Check them out here on Amazon.
I was sent both of these for free in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.
