It is very easy to clean that maintains its longevity. The easily removable blade makes it trouble-free process for any novice user.

The slicer is easy to clean thanks to the die-cast aluminum housing. The other reason why we like this slicer is that it can handle a large quantity of food.

In terms of construction, the housing is made of die-cast aluminum, and all carriage components and trays are made of easily washable plastic.
- Home Verge
It's also great that you can easily come up with a perfect slice for cheeses and salami, fruits and vegetables at any time you want. It saves you a lot of time trying to cut even slices of cheese for a sandwich.

What experts didn't like
Its only flaw may be the fact that it has a very noisy motor that may be a bother to some users.
- Top Best 10 Reviews
Can’t cut food that’s under a quarter of an inch thick. The construction of the slicer means that the food it slices needs to be at least a quarter of an inch thick, which can cause issues. Even if you start out with a thicker piece of food, you can end up with a stub at the end that won’t get automatically sliced.
- My Kitchen Advisor
Motor is relatively loud.
- BestReviews
It may heat up soon when used for large amount of food materials.

Though it is durable, any major issue can damage its blade and motor as well.
- Food Gear
It’s noisy when operating.

More plastic than I like to see in anything that will be used for any high volume kitchen work
- Home Verge
Though this is a great meat slicer, it cannot handle slicing bone. The blade will dill and will definitely damage your food slicer if you do

An Overview On Meat Slicers

There’s just something about having a meat slicer on your counter that says “chef at work.” It’s a staple on any deli counter, but it can be just as much of a time-saver at home — and no, you don’t need to be a chef to use one.

The basic design of the meat slicer hasn’t changed much over the years. Essentially, there’s a rotating steel blade with some sort of guard plate covering it. A carriage carries the meat (or other food) over the exposed sharp edge, cutting it into slices that drop on the other side. You can generally make those slices as thick or thin as you need with the use of a knob on the side that lowers or raises the carriage. Needless to say, it’s a vast improvement over the budget alternative of a simple knife, cutting board and elbow grease.

In the last few decades, we’ve seen electric slicers come into prevalence for home units as well as commercial use. Meat slicers, like the Chef’s Choice Electric, make the whole process even easier, thanks to an electric motor that moves the carriage back and forth. Just put the food in, turn it on and it slices in seconds. Still, some prefer the control of a manual slicer, where the carriage is moved by hand — especially with tougher meats that might need additional pressure to cut.

While the catch-all name is “meat slicer,” these devices are by no means limited to one job. Depending on the household, meat slicing might not even be the primary use. They can be used to cut onions or tomatoes for a salad, cheese slices for sandwiches, homemade potato chips and more. You’ll get slices down to the last sliver of food, each one cut to a uniform thickness and as thin as you need. And since uncut veggies, meat and cheese cost much less than pre-sliced packages, you’re saving money as well as time.

Review Melt Fun Fact

According to Guinness Book of World Records, the title for the longest meat-slicing marathon was won in — where else? — Paris, France. Spaniard Noé Bonillo Ramos set the record over three days in February 2015 at Les Grands d’Espagne, slicing away for 72 hours, 13 minutes and 8 seconds. That blew past Gregorio Perez Fernandez’s previous record of 40 hours the previous year.

What’s even more impressive is that Ramos cut more than 150 kilograms of ham during the attempt and did it all with a traditional, hand-held blade. No meat slicer involved. (Guinness doesn’t say who got to eat all the sandwiches that resulted from Ramos’ run, but the meat was donated to a local charity.)

The Meat Slicer Buying Guide

  • When you’re buying this appliance, the first thing you want to ask yourself is what you’ll be slicing. Despite the name, many households will use their meat slicer just as much for cutting veggies and cheese, if not more. If that’s the case, there might not be a need for a high-powered machine. In terms of wattage, meat slicers can range from a 120-watt motor to as much as 300 or more — though slicers in the latter range will be primarily for commercial use. If you’re expecting to slice roasts or ham on a regular basis, the higher wattage units might pay off in the long and short run, delivering an easier cut and higher durability.
  • The same considerations apply when selecting a blade size. Most commercial slicers have a 7-inch diameter saw, like the Continental Electric. That should be fine for vegetables, cheeses and most meats, but consider a 10″ blade if you’re cutting large slabs of roast.
  • The next thing you’ll want to look at is the future home for your device. There’s no getting around the fact that slicers are fairly bulky, weighty pieces of machinery — and that’s for safety as much as anything else. But if counter space is at a premium, the relatively svelte Chef’s Choice series is a good, compact example.
  • Be on the lookout for cheap materials, too. For obvious reasons, you’re going to want a surface that won’t rust or stain easily, which is why most slicers of any quality are made out of stainless steel. Some may have plastic accessories such as blade guards or handles, but ideally, those will have some kind of waterproofing.
  • Speaking of messes, you’re going to be cleaning that meat slicer after nearly every use. Make sure that process is as painless as possible, literally as well as figuratively. You’ll find that most slicers have detachable parts that might include the blade guard, blade, carriage and meat tray. Ideally, those parts can all be removed easily. If not, a sharp saw blade is not something you want to fumble with. You may also want to check which parts, if any, are dishwasher safe. It’s a feature that cuts down on hazards as well as cleaning time.
  • Cleaning aside, how safe is your slicer in general? Meat slicers can be powerful time savers, but it’s best not to forget that you’re dealing with a whirling sharp blade. A good blade guard is key, but there are other safety features to consider, especially for those with young children in the house. An often-overlooked feature is the base. Are the legs of the slicer bare metal? Rubber? Suction-cupped? A secure, non-wobbly surface is crucial – especially for manual slicers – and can make sure there are no slips while you’re pushing your food across the carriage. Many models also incorporate a safety lever to lock the carriage when it’s not in use, such as those in the Chef’s Choice series.
  • Again, most every slicer has an adjustable thickness knob, but you’ll want a nice sharp blade for consistently thin cuts. Make sure you sharpen the blade at regular intervals, as directed by the manual. Some models such as the Best Choice Products’ Commerical include whetstones specific to their blade types.
