Best electric knife

The Cuisinart CEK-40 is everything you need in an electric knife: powerful, comfortable to use, and loaded with features. The handle and two blades -- one for meat, one for bread -- store in the included butcher block. Blade safety locks insure that fingers aren't imperiled by an accidental activation. This electric knife also works for both right-and left-handers.

Quick Take:

No experts review electric knives, possibly because they're simply not as popular as they were in the past. Still, an electric knife is handy to have on hand for many kitchen tasks. They quickly and precisely make short work of larger cuts of meat and can slice through bread like a hot knife through butter -- leaving fewer messy crumbs. And, if you have hand strength issues or suffer from arthritis, you'll appreciate how little effort an electric knife requires. The Cuisinart CEK-40 not only checks all those boxes, it's also covered by a three-year warranty.
