This is the first food slicer that I've owned but I have used commercial ones before. I was surprised at how slowly the blade turns but it cuts everything I've thrown at it with ease. The slice width adjusting knob is nice and tight and doesn't move when pushing meat against it. I really like the 9" blade as compared to the 7.5 inch models. I can't comment on longevity as I've only owned it a month but it seems like it'll last a while. I am very picky and clean it right after each use. Should keep the crud out of the key components. In my opinion, it cleans very well and easily. Nut that holds the blade in comes off easily yet stays when in use. Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase.
