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 a handy gadget to have in a fully functional kitchen. It's especially good at saving money at the deli by allowing you to slice your own meats, at home, to your personal specifications. It is also the finishing touch to professional level projects that require a smooth, even slice like Italian roast beef, smoked brisket, and roasted turkey. It is a cinch to clean with a minimum of design flaws that allow food to find a hiding place. I give it a 10 for ease of use. It slides smoothly with a minimum of effort. I entertain often and I want a finished, professional look to platters and, for that, this is ideal for slicing tomatoes, cucumbers, and any vegetable. It has smooth action, very good design, and does a superior job. The only way that I can see to improve this slicer, is to make it a bit more compact. It's a very good investment.
I love it for slicing meat for jerky. It was hard to keep it at the same thickness. Had to keep adjusting it.
Started to smell smoke after using it hard for 10 minuets. Let it cool off and it worked fine. I think I would spend more money
next time and get a bigger motor. It is a lot better than slicing with a knife.

The product sounds great, however one item that should be in the details is whether or not the motor is removable from the rest so the food area can be cleaned well, the slicer I have now you cannot separate the motor from the food area, except the blade and I don't feel it cleans well if you have to try and keep the motor dry. Does the motor separate from the rest of the slicer???mstrgrdnr on Nov 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
