We bought this mainly for slicing raw meat to have hot pot. We have used it twice so far. It gave very thin slices and the meat slices did taste much better than those you buy at frozen session in Asian grocery store. We also tried to use it to slice ham and cooked beef chunk. Very nice results as well. The machine was not heavy at all. Except the blade, most parts are plastic. I do not like the washing (after use) part, but very bearable since we slice meat only once in a while... We did look at some more expensive machines (in the range of 200-300 dollars), but decide to buy this one given the price and frequency of use. We do not regret.

This is an wonderful asset to my kitchen. Although it is a little tough to clean, especially under the blade adjustment, this is minor. The benefits far out weigh the difficulties. I've been making eye round roasts and slicing it for sandwiches instead of buying deli lunch meat. Much healthier than packaged meat. The slicer slices the meat VERY thin for wonderful sandwiches. It also slices thick for larger portions. I've only sliced meat, but it looks as though it could slice anything.

Great value here on Overstock.com compared to other sites. Make your own deli meat and cheese trays in no time and far cheaper than buying precut trays at the grocery store. highly recommend!

Our family goal was to get away from purchasing meats from the deli, pricey and loaded with preservatives and sodium. Now we roast our own meats and slice them ourselves. We use it to slice bread and cheese also. The 9-inch blade is nice as it handles a normal size roast without having to cut it in half to slice it. The slicer is easy to clean. The blade comes off with a turn of the locking mechanism. We keep the slicer out on the kitchen counter, as we use it frequently. We're happy with the slicer.

Purchased this item over 2 years ago. Was advised to buy a more expensive brand. I use it from early Spring through fall regularly and intermittently the rest of the year. it's a must have for any gardener.

Our previous home slicer has always felt unsafe to me... you need to use two fingers on your left hand to press buttons at the same time so that it will operate while you are slicing (using a guard) with your right hand. I realize the purpose is to quickly stop the blade if something causes one of those fingers to release a button. I just haven't felt comfortable slicing with one hand. I am thrilled with this new slicer; it has a larger blade and the guard holder tips out so you can really get it clean. It is fairly heavy and doesn't move around, but the really great thing is that it has two side buttons - ON and OFF so you are able to use your right hand to push the guard against the food you are slicing, creating lovely, even slices and use your left hand on the handle. It feels so much safer! I just wish I had bought this before I wasted money on the old one.

We ordered this for ourselves and were so happy with it that the next day we ordered another one for my parents. It was the best price around and easy to use.

Check with an In-Store model first. Takes over 12 hours to properly dehydrate bananas.

This is the first sealer I have used that you don't have to wait minutes between each package you seal. So far it has worked great.I would like to do a review after a year as most items fail after the warantee has expired.

I have owned other retail vacuum sealers, and worn them out. I stumbled onto this machine on the recommendation of a well know tv show. The price was a bit over the top, but as I unpacked this unit I could see where the money went. This is a commercial (professional) grade, whatever adjective you want to apply to it, machine. It is large, I can't store it in a cabinet, it is heavy, but it is efficient and performs like crazy. I don't regret having it on the counter, I use it daily. If you have the cash and get the use out of a vacuum sealer, do it and stop buying cheap plastic junk. I'm looking forward to hitting the farmers market this year.

used it to slice an almost frozen 3lb. rump roast forsteak sandwiches had no real trouble except machine slid on counter when I tried to push it too fast other than that all sliced nice and thin and cleaned up in about 20 min instead of an hour or so with a good knife

We have been using this for a few months now. Don't know why we did not buy one earlier. This works great. Cleaning is easy, slices well thin or thick.

We have not had the opportunity to even take this item out of the box to inspect it or try it. Box is still unopened in the garage. Doing the review to stop getting annoying emails to do so.

A very nice slicer - much easier than making my jerky by hand. Thickness adjustment knob is a little tight but works fine. Very easy to use and to clean.

I have worked in a deli for over 30 years and this slicer scared the hell out of me, It slid all over the counter and I couldn't get it to slice one clean slice of meat. All it did was tear and shreed the meat. I couldn't wait to get it cleaned up and shipped back. DO NOT BUT THIS MACHINE IF YOU TREASURE YOUR FINGERS.

Did some research on sealers and while there's a wide range, many/most only work for short storage. This one is an exception. A quality product that works well. One caution is that is large and weighs 20+ pounds so better to have a permanent place for it,

I purchased this food slicer as a gift for my husband. I did alot of research and found this Weston HD 9" to be a great value. When we received it he couldn't wait to start slicing! My husband has a degree in agriculture, specifically the animal side and we purchase alot of wholesale cuts, which we slice, ground, and freezer pack to save money. He was very pleased with the performance of this slicer and commented on how easy it was to clean. I highly recommend this slicer to anyone.
