I had a expensive one -don't remmber what it was- and it didn't last long. Purchased a $9.00 (at the time)Hamilton beach one 15 yrs ago and still going strong. I use for the usual meat cutting, it works great for cutting bread , Husband used it for cutting some styrofoam,( with out me know at first) figure I would be buying a new one. Still going.

I have a KA and like it. I think a less expensive one would have done a good job, as well, but the KA was a gift and I'm grateful.

I had the opportunity to use a B+D electric knife to carve a Christmas turkey Tuesday. I don't know the model number but it looked like the one pictured above.

I did not like it at all. The blades were too flexible and during the carving, turkey worked its way in between the blades as I carved. I wouldn't own it.
