The Model 270 Hybrid Sharpener has 2 motorized stages for fast sharpening, and 1 ultra-fine manual stage for razor sharp honing.
The Chef's Choice Hybrid #270 Sharpener is a great value-priced 20° 3-stage sharpener capable of handling even the dullest knives. What makes it a hybrid is that it combines 2 electric stages and 1 manual stage. The feature that separates this unit from other 3-stage hybrid units is the CrissCross™ technology in the third stage. A proprietary design, the CrissCross™ technology creates a very fine edge with lots of "bite". This is the unit we rate Best Overall Sharpener among the hybrids.
3 Stage Sharpening
- Stage 1 - Electric Coarse Diamond for fast initial sharpening
- Stage 2 - Electric Fine Diamond for refining the edge
- Stage 3 - Manual Ultra-Fine diamond for polishing to razor sharpness
Chef's Choice Hybrid 270 Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener sharpens straight edge and serrated knives, kitchen and household, light sporting and pocket knives. The Model 270 has a white top, black bottom and brushed stainless steel knife guides.
To be a good value, a sharpener must sharpen effectively, yet be less expensive than other sharpeners in its same category. This is the best electric sharpener we've found for kitchen knives in this price range. The #270 sharpens quickly, but more importantly, the edge it creates is very sharp and durable.
The Chef's Choice #270 is engineered and assembled in the USA. 1 Year Manufacturers Warranty.
