Looks good, sounds good, but haven’t actually used it yet only tested it.
This is an amazing piece of technology especially for people with low mobility. There is no need to apply pressure while cutting, just hold and lead the knife in order to carve your meat. Works great on my home made bread as well, i usually have difficulties getting even slices with a normal knife. This electric knife cuts perfect slices from my bread with minimum crumbs.
This is going to sound ridiculous but this is the first electric knife i have owned and i was looking forward to trying it out. It’s reasonably light and as long as you don’t force it, and allow the knife to do the work it’s a breeze to use. However, the one thing that really annoyed me was how small the handle gap was. It was fine when i was using it but the hubby had real problems as he has bigger hands than me, and he ended up using the normal carving knife.
If you’ve used electric knives before there’s not much to explain here. I’ve had a wahl knife previously and this one is similarly solidly built and will no doubt last for years. That said the handle is a little awkward, my hands aren’t overly large and it can be uncomfortable to hold, it must be near impossible for anyone with truly big hands.
- Good have been much Better
- good electric knife.
- Not sure it’s worth the faff but cuts well!

I’m almost disappointed with this, you would have assumed james martin wouldn’t let his name to be used on inferior products, but the fact is this is actually a bit naff. The main issues are that it is fairly flimsy and that the gap in the handle for fingers is far too small. This result is the device is hard to hold, not exactly ideal on an electric knife. As such, i can’t give it more than three stars, even if the actual knife function is very good – it even comes with two blades, one for frozen and one for non-frozen products.
It doesn’t like its blades in the dishwasher. Those two little black grips have dropped off.
Wall is a respected brand (as is james martin) but i’m not convinced that the quality of this lives up to expectation. I have arthritis in my right thumb so thought this would be more comfortable to use. It is really, a padded handle helps but the handle is too small for my hand and so using it for any length of time was uncomfortable. That said it coped well with a large shoulder of porki’m not sure it is worth the faff; i don’t have an electric point near my kitchen table so the joint had to be cut away from the table and whilst it was easy to wash, it’s not as easy as an ordinary carving knifei may be wrong in thinking this won’t last as long as my wahl hair trimmers (15+ years) and will update this post once this knife has been put to work long time.
Only used this once since we got it. Have to admit that if it hadn’t come up in the vine programme i wouldn’t have got it. I’m perfectly happy carving with knives. I mainly got it for my wife, who’s less keen on carving up the roasts. The issue of the small aperture of the hand-hold is a problem for me, but not for teresa. Whilst the knife seems ok at first glance, build quality looks and feels rather cheap on actual use. We’ve only used the ordinary blade so far, so bit tried the one intended for tough/frozen meats, nor have we tried changing the blades, which judging from other reviews here isn’t as easy as it should be. So, all told, not hugely impressed, and not sure how much use this kitchen carvery gadget will actually get in our home.
While this is not the most necessary of products, i must admit it is very good at what it has been designed for. It comes with two sets of blades, one for cooked meat and one for frozen. It performs it’s tasks well if a bit noisily. The handle could be a bit larger as my fingers only just fit into the grip, but it wasn’t a serious problem. I must admit, i doubt i would ever have paid for an electric knife, as a regular knife has served me fine for many years. That said, i cannot fault this product – it does exactly what it is meant to and does it quite well.
I bought this to replace an old one. My first thoughts were that it looks good and comes with different blades one for ordinary slicing and one for frozen products. Upon using it the handle has been made quite small so that my knuckles just fit the handle , and can be quite annoying , the second thing is that the blades although are of good quality the teeth are quite far apart and do not make cutting meat very smooth and in fact the blades leave saw marks on the meat. Having said all that it it is a quality product with just a few niggles.
Brilliant product for fish meats and bread and easy action – dont press down-let the knife do the work and cutting.
I had my original electric carving knife over 40 years ago, and based on this present incarnation little appears to have changed in their design since then. As with that original knife this one comes with two sets of blades one of which is for use on frozen items. This knife works well enough and is not too noisy, but i find the space between the hand grip and the main body rather small, and after a short period of use my finger knuckles are beginning to suffer (my fingers maybe long but they are very slender). The button release for the blades requires quite a bit of pressure to operate. Not sure what happened to the original caring knife, probably was consigned to the loft as, like many novelty devices the fad wore off, although i did try to find it recently as with a now arthritic wrist i though it might be helpful. So the arrival of this one is timely, although for obvious reasons the difficult to press release button is a big drawback. Build quality going by appearances is not impressive. The body parts do not align exactly and the edges of the mouldings are a little rough.
Wahl james martin electric knife 150w is a good source for carving my sunday roast. I found the actual knife comfortable to hold mainly because it has a rubberised handle which i found was slip proof which is important to me personally as sometimes my hands might get warm and slippy when cooking. The actual knife is supplied with two sets of blades, one for ordinary carving i. Cooked food plus a set of blades with teeth which are spaced further apart which makes it ideal for cutting frozen food. The knife is an excellent cutter, if you hold the knife and let it do the work, do not put pressure on your knife as it seems to slow the blades down which makes the meat not be cut as neatly or as quickly. Simply hold the knife on the meat or whatever food your cutting and the blades will cut while you allow your hand to direct the electric knife as the food is carved. If you follow the instructions the meat can be carved neatly and i was able to cut nice thin slices which personally my family prefer as it makes the meat easier to eat and cut up especially for the children. The actual hand area is quite slim but i was able to hold the electric knife firmly and safely by the simple positioning of the fore-fingers in the loop and gripping hard using the index finger as the director as well as the thumb for a firmer and easier hold. My fingers do swell due to arthritis but i still was able to hold the electric knife using a very comfortable and safe grip.
