Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Professional-grade performance at a home-appliance price point. Stainless steel and die-cast aluminum. Easy to take apart and clean.
The primary feature that we really enjoyed with this food slicer was how easy it was to clean it down. It takes literally seconds to pull it apart and wipe it down so you can transition between foods easily and without contamination.
The best part of this slicer is that it is electric and hence doesn’t require any manual input in it.
Talking about sturdiness or flexibility, this one has it all.
Runs quietly. The engine on this machine is quiet given its power. It’s great for use in a home or apartment where you want to prepare food without alerting everyone in the building.
Whether you want to cut large pieces or small ones, the slicer boast adjustable precision cut control for thin deli cutting.
Its precision is high thanks to the precision thickness control. Therefore, you can have from deli-thin slices to one-inch thick slices of meat.
The tilted big food carriage will make for the most effective and time efficient slicing experience – and you can actually slice quite a chunk at a single go.
The good thing is that it can still chop different sizes of meats ranging from 3/4-inch steak to deli-thin meat. Besides this, it can also slice other food types such as bread, veggies, brisket, cheese etc..

What reviewers didn't like

7" blade is smaller than some other slicers (but still incredibly effective).
The one design flaw in this Chef’s Choice meat slicer is that the feed tray has a gap between it and the blade. If you’re cutting softer items, this tends to feed food products into the gap and have them rotate around the blade.
The blade is a little on the smaller side. The seven-inch blade will suit people cooking for smaller families, but if you want to slice large items or use this slicer in a business setting, then you’re likely to find the blade to be too small.
Removing all the parts of the slicer when cleaning and putting them back isn’t as easy.
However, the 7-inch serrated blade is relatively smaller than what is found in other top models.
