he 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 for even the dullest knives. It is called a hybrid because it uses 2 electric stages and 1 ultra-fine diamond pull-though stage. The feature that separates this unit from other 3-stage units, is the CrissCross™ technology in the third stage. We have found that the CrissCross™ design creates a very fine edge with lots of "bite".
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.
Value 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.
