Because those who are die hard sharpening stone enthusiasts frown upon this device, and down vote it each time it is posted.

The average person doesn't care how their knives get sharpened, they just want them "sharp". This accomplishes that purpose. At the expense of extra metal? Yes.
Does it really matter, not really because the majority of houses don't have quality knives anyway.

Anyone who has professional chef grade knives, will always sharpen them by stone. It is just something you must do as part of the trade. Your knives are you, and taking the extra time to do them by stone is just part of it. In addition to the fact quality chef knives can run you $300-$2,500 a knife. Some are up in the $5,000 range each.

This is a great price, buy it if you want it.

Just be aware this sharpens it to a 15 degree (per blade side, 30 in total) angle instead of the traditional 20ish. This make the blade cutting edge more susceptible to breaking or chipping on extremely hard items, bone as an example.
But once again really of no consequence to the average home owner.

Obviously people are thumbs downing this? Why? Reviews seem fairly solid. What am I missing?

I'm confused by the reactions (and FakeSpot rating) as well. Wirecutter (previously the Sweet Home) recommended this model in their Knife Sharpener roundup - https://thewirecutter.com/reviews...ning-tool/ . I don't always agree with the final rankings from the Wirecutter, but their reviews are well-elaborated and honest in the sense that they'll pull a recommendation and look into things if they hear about a lot of problems with a specific model.

The Trizor also gets mentioned in a lot of other Top Sharpener lists.

Also, I got one off of E-Bay a few years ago for about the same price. The thing is really easy to use, intuitive, and takes about 1-2 minutes. Afterwards, my chef's knife was able to cut through tomatoes and a sheet of paper with very little force. So, at the very least, I had a positive experience from this.

I'm just bitter that I paid this much for a used model now.

I got a lower model from home goods for 60 bucks. Worth it! This is a great price. I have fancy knives and makes it super sharp. I tried to use the sharping block but it takes forever. I did all of my knives in less of the time it took to do one knife on a block.

I am confused...but not too surprised as well.

Chef's Choice has been the top selling brand of electric sharpeners for many years. I am on my third (just because I like the newest stuff and wanted to try Trizor) and have this model that I got on Amz Deal o the Day in May for $99.

Love it. It converts even my old knives to a modern variable cut angle.

But in the last 2 years there has been a huge increase in skepticism about everything posted on media. I do see that review meta and the reviewindex give the Amaz reviews a "Pass" rating. They must use different algorithms.

But it is also one of the very easiest to research because they have been around so long.

Great Deal.

I've had one of these for a few years and absolutely love it. This is a great price as well, as these very rarely go below $110 or so. Thumbs up from me!!!

Great sharpener. Paid much more than this and was still worth it. You don't need to eat into the metal all the time and make a new edge. Just sharpen the edge after the first time.
