Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny and more! I have owned the Cuisinart CEK-40 Electric Knife for several years now and I couldn't be happier with the quality and performance. It has been used to carve roasts, turkey, ham, chicken, and even slice bread. The blades never seem to need sharpening. When I first purchased this knife I thought it was a bit over-priced but after years of hard use, I know otherwise. This knife was built to last and last and last! Spend the extra and get the best. I have bought two more of these as wedding gifts and the couples I gave them to are just as impressed as I am with the quality and performance. December 22, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great knife Great electric knife. Perfect for slicing fresh bread. Great for slicing roasts. It's a bit loud, but functionally works great. The stand is a little clumsy with how it puts together and holds the cord. October 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Knife, fair value I bought this primarily for slicing fresh bread and it works very good. The wood storage block is a nice touch but the plastic stand doesn't like to stay put when removing or storing cord. The "ergonomic" handle? not so much. September 23, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electric Knife.... This the best electric knife I have ever had. I cut up a turkey that I had roasted, and my knife cleaned that bird so well I only needed to cook the bones for soup. I love the bread knife for cutting not only bread, but bundt cakes and angel food cakes, it does not crush the cakes. This knife also looks really good on my counter. This knife is so versitile that I would not have any other. January 18, 2007
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Broken The trigger switch broke in the middle of carving a turkey. Not a very reliable product. March 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovin It We placed this in our trailer on the wall. It is great for cutting meat and bread. The size is great and the holder is great to place on the wall. May 1, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great knife for carving Has bread and meat knife attachments. Very easy to use and handle especially for someone with arthritis. Handle is not slippery when cutting a Turkey for Thanksgiving. Cuisinart makes good products. December 24, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst appliance they ever made This is the second one I have owned. This one is about 7 years old and I use it twice a year. Both of them stopped working and the switch fell off. I am so disappointed with this knife. December 5, 2013
