For me, cooking is lots of fun, but the prep work? Not so much. Slicing, dicing and chopping can be time consuming- not to mention tiring. Plus, no matter how hard you try, I mean, I try, I can’t chop like a pro- I can hear those pretty, perfectly diced vegetables on the Food Network laughing at me.
Well, now it’s my turn (yours too), to have the last laugh, because there is a way to make prepping and presenting quicker, easier, and a whole lot prettier: an electric knife. These knives allow for great control and precision, all while cutting down (literally) on effort, for a smooth experience.
My Best Electric Knife review and buying guide will help you understand what these knives can do and help you choose the one that is right for you. Trust me, these gadgets will transform how you cook- and have family and friends swearing Bobby Flay is in your kitchen.

Now it’s time for the fun part: reviewing the best electric knives on the market. Each of these models has something different to offer, but they all are top quality and come at different price points to work with any budget.
Of all the models on this list, the CEK-40 from Cuisinart is the best option, thanks to multiple blade options and a superior quality design that takes convenience to a whole new level.
This plug-in style knife has everything you can think of, starting with quality stainless-steel blades for precision chopping, dicing and slicing. There is a carving blade and a bread blade, so you can quickly slice French bread or filet a fish without mixing flavors or tearing delicate meats.
There is also an ergonomic handle that gives you a stable, comfortable grip, and a solid wooden chopping block to hold the knife and blades, for easy and safe storage.
Speaking of safe, there is a safety lock to keep it off when not in use, plus, the blades pop on and off easily and there is an on/off button for quick start and stop: it won’t automatically start when plugged in.
A do-it-all model that is great for those who cook often and for a lot of people.
This model is definitely the best value for your money, with a high-powered blade that cuts through bread, bone and more for under $15.
The blades are also stainless-steel and dishwasher safe, so maintenance and care is simpler than ever.
In addition to the strong blades, this model has an extra-long cord for no-tangles and a non-slip, contoured plastic handle that fits in any size hand. There is a safety lock so it won’t accidentally start and there is a carving fork included so you can hold your bread or meat easily while cutting.
A bargain price for a durable blade that makes this a great value in any kitchen.
