    slicer great price easy meat clean slicing slicers cheeses cheese

    This Avantco Meat slicer is perfect for our kitchen. We slice ham and swiss cheese and it works great. We can adjust the thickness and it is a quiet running machine. We highly recommend!

    from Havana Nights Café & Bakery Inc. Posted on

    Great low priced meat slicer. The price is right, but my only concern is difficulty cleaning the equipment components. Other meat slicers are designed to be easily cleaned and this one is a chore.

    Posted on

    good slicer , it does the job, little hard to clean it but I it does the work, easy to move it around and a good price

    from panaderia emanuel Posted on

    This item arrived sooner than expected which made it even better. The blade is rather difficult to remove for cleaning. You have to take you time removing it and be extremely careful not to cut yourself because of the housing around it. I mean extremely careful. Overall, this is a handsome, well built slicer and exactly what I have been looking for.

    from MM&M CATERING Posted on

    I owned a slicer made in Poland that I brought back from living in Prague, that lasted for more than 15 years. When the gear stripped and I couldn't get a replacement part, I found this slicer. This is a great value and high quality compared to the slicers sold in stores (it's not plastic)! Also look at the wattage of this slicer compared to the retail ones, to get this power you would be paying twice this amount. Great Product! Great Price and deliver time was also excellent.

    This is a nice slicer. We don't have a lot of slicing but it is really nice to have this slicer for a reasonable price. We didn't want to have to invest thousands of dollars to get a slicer for our Bistro.

    from Red River Inn Posted on

    Good meat slicer, working as expected, good price, easy to use. However, we hope it can be easier to clean. So far so good :

    Solid slicer. For an economy item. Not heavy duty but we don't need a ton of work. Mostly prepping chips and cured meats. Easy to clean, Dummy proof

    from West Edge Restaurant & Lounge Posted on

    Honest review for the price it's amazing as something to start off with the blade can be better but all in all it comes back to the price

    Posted on

    It's perfect for slicing a few blocks of cheese a week. It's definitely much more "powerful" than the slicer we were using and gets the job done much quicker. My only gripes are 1) there is a nut/bolt behind the blade that sometimes catches the cheese slice and tears it 2) there isn't a "tray" underneath to catch the cheese 3) cleaning this thing is kind of a difficult. The instructions (or lack thereof) weren't all that descriptive, and we can't really seem to figure out the best way to clean this thing. Our old slicer was simple to dismantle and we could run parts of it through the dishwasher, but we've pretty much been wiping this one down bc it doesn't really come apart. Definitely recommended for light duty, but wish it were easier to clean.

    Great meat slicer for a great price. Who says that deli slicers have to cost thousands of dollars? This does the job and does it well!

    from Das Biergarten Posted on

    Slicer is ok. Good buy for the price but not the best had to replace and fix couple of times. Wont last long just ok

    from Genos giant slice Posted on

    We use this meat slicer for our chicken and salami and it works out pretty well. There are times that the blade gets jammed, but it is easily fixed by cleaning up the area surrounding the blade.

    from Simply Natural Cafe Posted on

    Great slicer for the price. We use it 2-4 times a week to slice meat and cheese for a coffee shop. Does the job and we would recommend it for lighter use.

    I am really disappointed of webstaurant store. I bought it more than a month ago, and I can't still use my slicer. By mistake, I bought a smaller slicer, so I request a refund. The personnel at my restaurant had opened it and test it, so they didn't made me the return, since the slicer was used (in their opinion because it was brand new). It was ok, I was going to use it anyway, so I request that they sent it back to me. But it arrived with bumps, scratches and with some parts broken. Instead of offering me too replace it, they offered me credit. My experience buying equipment for my restaurant at this website was really terrible. If you can, pay a little bit more at amazon or another store that has better customer service. But don't buy here. I will never buy here.

    from Roccan Corp Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your slicer has given you so many issues. A Customer Solutions Representative will remain in contact until the issue is resolved.

    Great price, we have used several times already and seems to work really well. We do cut alot of cheese with it for our Burgers, with no issues.

    from GREEN ZONE B & G Posted on

    This slicer is amazing. Its super quite and works really well Its like a ninja slicing meat.. The best decision we have made by far.. We love this thing.. Will recommend to everyone

    from Saucys Pizzeria Posted on

    Great little slicer. It is good for slicing deli meats, soft cheeses, and vegetables. I wouldn't recommend it for harder items such as frozen food or hard cheeses. Overall a great item for what I need it for. Will probably buy another slicer that is a little more heavy duty for the harder items.

    from Temecula Catering Posted on

    We received the slicer on time and in fine condition. We have only used it once and it worked like a dream, slicing roast beef. Far better than the other two slicers we had in the past. Great so far. Hoping it will continue.

    from Rene's Doggie Treats Posted on

    Good quality product, perfect for small kitchens like cafeterias. Constructed in a very strong aluminium, easy to wash, clean and operate. I recomended this product .

    from Colon Restaurant Supplies Posted on

    Good slicer for the money. I don't slice a lot so it's good for minimal use. If you slice a lot I'd go with a bigger unit but this is worth the money for what I use it for.

    from Michael's Pizza Posted on

    This is the best slicer for the money, great service from WEBstaurant Store, I have been in restaurant business for many years and say the ease of cleaning and use for the price can not be matched,

    The finding of this slicer was easy due to the information posted. Great slicer, Quality as expected, right size for the job. The price, shipping and attention is first class.

    from The Boardwalk Posted on

    This slicer was absolutely wonderful for what I need...not high volume slicing ...I usually do my cheeses for the sandwiches..a few hours a day..works great!!

    Posted on

    We are a coffee company that provides "box lunches" and other meats / cheeses for our guests. This slicer was the cheapest we could find but works well. While we know it isn't the best on the market, we feel like we got what we paid for. Be prepared for a messy work station and a bit longer cleaning process. It's good to go though.

    from EVOKE Posted on

    The Avantco SL309 (" Manual Gravity Feedmeat Slicer 1/4 hp. It is great for slicing your meats, cheeses, vegetables, and ect, just the thickness you like them for serving. We sre love ours. It is easy to clean.

    I have really enjoyed this Avantco Slicer, it has helped with the cost control and uniformity of cuts. I serve a lot of Roast Beef and it helps keep plate presentation the same. Would buy again.

    This is a great light duty meat slicer. Perfect for small operations like a diner or a mom and pop store. Heck, if you have a big family, why not get one for home use!

    My previous slicer broke down so I needed another quickly but at a price in the budget. For the amount of slicing we do, this a great deal. It even sliced firm roast beef without a problem.

    from ACES Cake Shop and Baker's Supply Posted on
