New! Try our kitchen knife-sharpening service
When we visit to clean your oven, why not take advantage of our professional knife-sharpening service. Over time the cutting edge on any set of kitchen knives will naturally fade and they will need to be sharpened. If a knife is blunt, it is important to sharpen it with a high-quality sharpener to bring back the edge. This creates a smooth honed cutting edge, not a torn jagged one, like most domestic sharpeners.
During knife sharpening, we remove burrs and reshape the cutting edge, setting the angle of the cut to precisely to 34⁰ (17⁰ each side), which leaves the blade with a smooth but sharp edge. Regularly sharpened plain edge knives cared for by the OvenMan are so sharp that they can slice bread better than a serrated or scalloped bread knife, leaving virtually no crumbs, and creating a really smooth slice with the minimum of effort.
Sharp knives are a pleasure to use and offer the following advantages:
- Safer to use, as the high cutting pressures needed by blunt knives can cause them to slip and cause injury.
- Less stress and strain on your hands, wrists and arms.
- Less waste of food, with more precise cuts.
- Longer blade life.
