1 people found this review helpfulI bought a Wixie digital protractor to measure angles a few years ago, before the Angle Cube became popular. The Wixie is rated at (at least) 0.1 degree accuracy while the Angle cube is rated (at least) 0.2 degree accuracy. My Wixie varied by a few tenths of a degree when I performed repeated measurements. It sometimes was sluggish to zero out. I wasn't very happy with it. Perhaps I got a defective one.
Recently I purchased the Angle Cube. I find I get much better consistency with repeated measurements. The Angle Cube zeros out much more quickly and consistently. Generally I find the angle measurements of the Wixie and Angle Cube to be within 0.2 degrees I have more confidence in the Angle Cube since it performs more consistently. One thing I like better about the Wixie is that the magnets are not quite as strong. The magnets on the Angle Cube are fairly strong and it takes a moderate amount of force to lift the cube off a knife.
The Angle Cube can be purchased from multiple sources such as Amazon. However, shipping speed and the quality of packing is consistently better from Chef Knives to Go. I live close to one of the main warehouses from where Amazon products are shipped and I am friends with someone who works there. Workers rush to get their work done, and some products are broken when they are carelessly handled and thrown into carts. Overall I like Amazon for their wide range of products, but merchandise is generally handled much more carefully at Chef Knifes to Go.
