Chef´s Choice USA professional electric knife sharpener CC1520 for european and asian style knives, straight and serrated edges.
Using this sharpener you can sharpen both European and Asian style knives with their own characteristic cutting angles of about 20 and 15 degrees.
The CC1520 has three stages. In the first two stages the european and asian style edges are formed and sharpened using 100% diamond covered sharpening disks. In the final step the blade is polished.
The Chef´s Choice sharpener gives the blade a durable arch-shaped edge. The diamond sharpening disks ensure that only a minimal amount of material is removed at a low temperature. So there is no excessive material loss or heating of the steel. Diamonds are extremely hard, so the Chef´s Choice can sharpen even the hardest steel alloys.
Precision holders in the sharpener ensure you get the perfect cutting angle over the complete length of the blade.
Chef´s Choice knife sharpeners are used by professional and hobby chefs alike
Chef´s Choice sharpeners are safe to use for your precious knives
Chef´s Choice sharpeners are most likely the best sharpeners that can be bought today. The knives are sharper than those sharpened using a steel, sharpening stone and even professional sharpeners.
The Chef´s Choice model CC1520 can handle straight edged (double and single edge) and serrated knives. The diamond sharpening disks can handle even the hardest steel alloys.
Step 1 Asian Knives or Step 2 European knives: Diamonds create the perfect cutting angle and give it a sharp edge. This are the main sharpening stages.
Step 3: Flexible polishing disks, polish the knife. Use this stage also instead of a steel, when the knife is still sharp, but has lost its bite. The polishing disk removes nearly no material, but it is essential to produce a razor sharp edge.
Use only step 3 for serrated knives. The teeth of the serrated knife are realigned and sharpened. You will immediately notice the difference.
The Chef´s Choice polishing disks replace the need for a sharpening steel. In fact once sharpened and polished in the Chef Choice, a steel will reduce the sharpness.
The sharpening disks are covered with industrial diamonds. The CC1520 has been designed for use in a home and (semi)professional environment.
Dependent on the kind and condition of your knives, you can sharpen about 1500 to 3000 knives. Also afterwards it is safe to keep using the CC1520, however you will notice an increase in the time required to sharpen your knives. In that case you can replace diamond sharpening disks.
Chef´s Choice sharpeners are easy to use. Precision guide technology ensures the perfect sharpening angle. You only have to slowly pull the knife through the sharpener.
The electromotor requires no service. You will have to clean the sharpening unit from time to time. Metal particles may cover the diamond and polishing disks, which might reduce their effectiveness.
The CC1520 is not suited for scissors
Small (1 mm long) scratches may appear close to the edge. Therefore it is not recommended to use the Chef´s Choice knife sharpeners for decorative knives.
Please guard your fingers. A sharpened knife is much sharper than you might expect!
