This is a beautifully crafted food slicer made for commercial and slightly rigorous home use.
- Top Best 10 Reviews
Comes with removable parts. The blade and the guide can be removed for cleaning. This allows you to clean as much of the slicer as possible without having to actually open it up. It’s also very easy to remove the parts for cleaning; you can get it cleaned up fairly quickly.
- My Kitchen Advisor
It has a strong 180w engine, 8.7 inches in diameter blade and the design looks good.
- Kitchen Byte
The unit also has a control knob that can adjust to slice any food depending on the thickness you want.

It has an adjustable slicing thickness control knob for a 9/16 thickness. The knob helps you control the thickness of your slices. It also makes it possible for you to slice the food to your desired level of precision.

The slicer weighs 13.2 pounds and measures 15 by 10.5 by 11 inches. The good thing is that its heavyweight provides enough stability during slicing.

Also, cleaning the slicer is incredibly easy. I simply air-dried it. Wiping it with a wet cloth will also work.

What experts didn't like
180W motor needs a cool down period of one hours after every 10 minutes of use.
- BestReviews
The only unpleasant thing about this slicer is the wobbly blade that requires plenty of patience to get used to.
- Top Best 10 Reviews
A bit noisy. The motor driving the blade is noisy for its power level. It’s nothing too bad, but it can be annoying to use in a domestic setting.
- My Kitchen Advisor
This one is a bit odd; you can basically do everything with it. You just need to work harder than you should. Everything takes more effort than it should, and it started frustrating me quickly.
- Kitchen Byte
You cannot fit a very large piece of meat on the sliding tray.
- Tasty Kitchenn

The main complaint about the machine, among some consumers, is that it is not super-fast or powerful as perceived.

I haven’t tried it on cheese but you better not do that as well because bits of cheese might get stuck in the teeth of the blade.
