You’re honestly better off paying someone to sharpen your knives properly. These do the job, but if you have a nice knife, it will slowly ruin it.

Or learn to use a whetstone!

I mean I assume the people who own $200+ knives (and I mean per knife) already know this. These machines do great at sharpening those $200 knife block knives.

Sorry what is the basis for this statement? From my understanding, every single high volume manufactured knife is sharpened with an electrical device... It's not like you can wear down the chunk of metal to a nub... As long as you have the proper angle, I see no issues. It just won't be as sharp as on a whet stone.

I have an older version of the Presto knife sharpener which was made in the US. I don't like it because while it sharpens one side of the knife smoothly, the knife chatters on the grindstone when sharpening the other side. This is for both the coarse stone and the fine stone.

(Mine has two stones while this one has three.)

Depends on how often you do it.
I have a couple slicing knives that are about 3/4 the original.
Even then it's years of use and continual sharpening.

So in essence I don't disagree with your statement (especially since I use electric sharpeners myself because I'm lazy) but you can for sure wear down your knife.
As long as you have the proper angle, I see no issues. It just won't be as sharp as on a whet stone.
To be fair, this is true on a whet stone too. That's why they sell angle guides.
Also if you're just starting with a stone, you're probably gonna dull your knife before you get good enough to actually sharpen it.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.
