Chef´s Choice USA hybrid knife sharpener CC220. Contains an electric sharpening step and a handpolishing step, combining the efficiency of an electrical sharpener and the ease of a hand sharpener.
For long lasting sharpness of straight knives.
The knives are treated in two steps. In the first -electrical- step the cutting edge is sharpened. Each side of the blade is sharpened by its own 100% diamond covered sharpening disk. In the second -hand- step the blade is polished. As this is a handstep, you can use it ofen to keep your knife in top condition at all times.
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 (semi-)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 Chef´s Choice model CC220 can handle small and medium sized European style straight edged (double and single edge) knives. The diamond sharpening disks can handle even the hardest steel alloys.
Step 1-electrical: Diamonds create the perfect cutting angle and give the knife a sharp edge.
Step 2 - hand: 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
The sharpening disks are covered with industrial diamonds.
The CC220 has been designed for private and home use.
Chef´s Choice sharpeners are easy to use. Precision guide technology ensures the perfect sharpening angle. The CC220 has criss cross technology: this means you can alternately pull and push the knife through the sharpener. This makes sharpening even faster than in traditional sharpeners, where only pulling is possible.
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 CC220 is not suited for scissors,
Japanese or Chinese style knives as they require a different sharpening angle.
Serrated knives can be sharpened in the polishing step.
If you wish to sharpen long kitchen knives, like chef knives, slicers or carvers, or if you have intensively used knives, we recommend choosing a fully electrical sharpener like the model CC120.
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.
