Why is it a good Black Friday deal?

Not only are you saving nearly 70% with this price chop, but the knife sharpener itself will save you some serious dough by allowing you to restore your old knives rather than shelling out for new ones — and for a mere $10 (an all-time low price), it's a no-brainer.

Why do I need this?

If you own a set of knives, there's a really good chance that they need sharpening. Even if you use a sharpening steel every time you cut through a tomato or chop celery, each slice slowly dulls the blade. You could take your knives to a professional, but not everyone has the time or money for that.

How does it work?

The Kitchellence sharpener looks like a handle with three notches in it. It's ergonomically designed for comfort and lets you control the device. It sharpens your blade in a three-step process: You pull it through the first slot to take care of the big dents and grooves with the diamond-grit rod; the next slot returns the blade to its original V shape; and the third slot gives it a good polish. It also comes with a cut-resistant glove to keep you safe.

What reviewers say

If you've been thinking about chucking your knives for a sharp new set, know that many of this gadget's 20,000-plus five-star reviewers were considering the same thing.

One satisfied cook shared: "I've had my poor chef knife in a drawer and over the last year it's gotten dull and has a small dent on the blade. I just got this sharpener and used the three steps. And I've gotta say I'm impressed. I managed to cut through paper after doing the three-step sharpening. It's like the knife is brand-new. For the price and ease of use, I would recommend anyone get this for their home."

"It made my knife set that I was ready to throw away come back to life," reported another rave reviewer.

"I had dull knives until I bought this sharpener," shared a happy shopper. "It does the job quickly. I liked the glove providing protection from accidental cuts."

"I love this so much," wrote one self-described "obsessed" reviewer. "I held off buying a sharpener for years because I thought it had to be electric and expensive. Well, this thing surprised me. ... It works SO WELL with only a couple of pulls in each slot. I have a whole new set of knives!"

"Just for kicks, I decided to take my old pocket knife and dull it on a rock before using this thing," said a final fan. "It actually restored it to working order pretty fast. I only did 10 pulls through each slot to see how well it would perform. I took all of my kitchen knives to it, and it got them incredibly sharp real fast. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't work on serrated knives, which is a downer, but if you're looking to sharpen up standard kitchen knives this thing works wonders." (Psst: This highly rated Orange Ninja 4-Stage Knife Sharpener has a setting for serrated knives, if that's of importance.)

This nifty gadget has over 20,000 perfect ratings, and no wonder: Reviewers say it keeps their trusty old blades working like new.

Over 11,000 Amazon reviewers have given this knife set their five-star seal of approval, and you're gonna love it too!

"Finally sharp (and safe) knives," said one happy home cook. "I have been used to ordinary knives until my brother, who is a chef, convinced me to upgrade to Henckels. I must admit I was a bit nervous at first, worrying about cutting myself, but the grip on these knives keeps my hands from slipping. They are extremely sharp and do a great job in the kitchen."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Aside from their fab price (over 40% off!), we love the real-time power readout on the front of the case of these earbuds, making it so much easier than pulling out your phone and swiping to find out how much charge is left.

With its 6-quart capacity, this gorgeous air fryer can hold enough food for five to seven people, yet its small footprint won't take up too much space on your counter. Its patent-pending TurboCrisp technology helps ensure quick, even cooking with that crunch factor we all crave (though you'll be able to cook with as much as 75% less fat than deep-frying). The user-friendly touchscreen lights up while in use and features time and temperature settings (from 90-400 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers.
