Being the faster sharpener isn’t enough to help the SunrisePro Supreme compete with the PriorityChef. The latter is an all-rounder that offers a more efficient sharpening experience.

The SunrisePro has a strong, solid build, but its suction base keeps threatening to loosen its grip. The base of the PriorityChef isn’t exactly its selling point, but it’s much more tolerant of various kinds of surfaces; plus, with its substantial size, this sharpener is easier and safer to work with.

Both sharpeners are among the top in our sharpness and speed tests. With tungsten carbide blades for the abrasives, the SunrisePro was slightly faster. However, it peeled off a lot of steel, leaving the knife's edge thin but rough. The gentle grinding by the PriorityChef’s diamond-coated discs proved to be more sustainable for your delicate kitchen knives.
