$299.99 via mail-in rebate with $16.99 s&hEXPIRED
Lowest By: $83

Is It Worth It?: If you've already got a set of knives but they can't even cut through butter, then check out the 1-2-3 Miracle Sharpener. The 3-slot design sharpens knives in three steps: the first slot prepares the blade, the second sharpens, and the third slot finishes the edge for clean cuts. At $11, it's tied as the lowest price we've seen for this sharpener.
