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 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
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electric Knife It's easy to use,and clean! It's great to cut even slices and make your food look as good as it taste! Which is important to me. I love entertaining,and it' a great tool, it even looks great! I love to cut the meat right in front of my quest it is impressive and it's entertaining for the quest,I think they feel special and that is my goal! Thank you for making my party go so well!

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by All Purpose Knife Great knife I have 2 one for my kitchen one for food and one for cutting other items like Styrofoam,cut flowers,cardboard and many other items I use this knife for scissors and easier on my fingers and arms. It never gets dull either. Great knife every woman should have one." December 14, 2007
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
