Pros:Cheap, most of is metal, gravity tilt

Cons:Some plastic parts, obviously something you may use that often, cleaning can be inconvient.

The Bottom Line: Buy this if you want a meat slicer for whatever reason. It's sturdy enough for that occasional party platter or big sandwich.


Hello!
Ok so I did it. I went to Bed bath and Beyond, used my 20% off coupon and got this baby for $80.
Ever since I saw a Seinfeld episode where Kramer was slicing meats in Jerry's apartment, I always wanted one. Wow, that be nice to make my own roast with my own spices and well doneness and slice them really thin for sandiwchs or wraps or whatever.
Performance:
Well, I'm not too verse in the capabilities of a meat slice, but it does what it does! It slices real nice. The thing is tilted so that gravity feeding is natural and the meats push naturally into the blade. The rolling/sliding mechanisim is kinda flimsy (basically a plastic ring sliding along a metal tube). It kinda as a little rocking to it and not solid feeling. Basically, it doesnt have that solid sprocket, ball bearing heavy duty fell to it. but hey its cheap , so what u expect. As for me, paying a whole lot for a kitchen tool admittedly I won't be using that often..I let this misgiving slide (pun intended! ha).

The thickness adjustment is really easy, done by a finger lever at the back. It's a pretty heavy device with suction cups on its feet to give u more traction. I think its heavy enough.

Cleaning is weird. The actual sliding tray cannot be removed. SO u gotta clorox it or just wipe it down. The blade can be removed...but u gonna need a screw driver and take out a few screws. The gears are screwed ontot the blade and currently fresh from the box has lots of lubricant on them. SO, if you were to wash the whole thing out, you may have to re lubricate the gears with something i have no idea...its thick stuff like toothpaste.

Overall, I wanted to buy a meat slicer just so I can tell ppl that I have one. I'll probably use a couple times a year for big sandwich. I think its a good home device for occaional use. For example, you wanna do a big meat platter for a party once a year?...then this will do the trick, especially if y have your own roats beef style or barbeque recipes.

hope that helps.
