The Waring WEK200 cordless electric knife is a complete cutting system offering a long-lasting battery pack, an adjustable slicing guide and plenty of safety features in an innovative design.
This cordless slicer comes with almost everything you need in an electric slicer. The knife comes with a long-lasting lithium battery that recharges quickly with the included AC adapter, and it won't lose its charge while it is being stored and not in use. Because the battery pack is built in, if the charge runs out while you are in the middle of a job, you have to wait until the unit charges before you can continue. You can't swap out the battery for a new one and keep going.
This Waring electric knife set comes with two separate serrated blades, which makes the device versatile. Both blades are stainless steel, so they resist corrosion and rusting even when you wash them in the dishwasher frequently. The bread blade slices smoothly without crumbling the bread, and the meat blade carves even the largest cuts of meat with precision. The knife also has an adjustable slicing guide, so you can makes sure all of your cuts are equal.
One unusual feature of the Waring cordless electric knife is the integrated LED that improves visibility when you are carving meat in dimly lit areas. If you are dining by candlelight, you don't have to spoil the mood by turning on all of the overhead lights in order to slice the meat. The appliance also comes with a hard case that protects your electric knife and keeps all of the parts together while you aren't using the knife. The case also has a handle to make the knife easy to carry.
The knife has an ergonomic handle. The power switch is integrated into the handle and prevents you from turning on the knife accidentally. You must hold down the power switch firmly to engage the blades, which can be taxing. However, it should prevent young children from accidentally activating the knife.
The Waring WEK200 is a state-of-the-art carving knife with a variety of options for carving and slicing. The knife is simple to control, is lightweight and recharges quickly.
