After several months of use we like the performance of this slicer for light duty applications. All things considered, cleaning is relatively easy. We would recommend this product.

Solid slicing power even through cheese. Sliced for 2 hours straight with no issues. For a lower to mid price unit this does the job well. If slicing very large cuts like brisket or long cuts like genoa you will have to cut the meat in half. That is to be expected fro a slicer of this size.

Slices great and is easy to use. I have not yet been able to figure out how to take the slicer deflector off to properly clean it. The instructions merely say to take it off to clean. They don't say how. I'm sure I"ll figure it out eventually. If the cleaning instructions were more helpful I'd give it 5 stars.

One problem after another. handle just broke still waiting for them (avantco) to help me fix it, Why cant they call me back?impossible to clean, and you have to tighten the bolt constantly to make sure you don't get metal shavings in your meat or cheese because blade is always hitting the arm of the unit.

For being a low priced meat slicer, we have had no issues with this model. We purchased in in June of last year for our new store when we brought deli meats in. Greatly cut down on our prep time (vs. hand sliced meats) and gave us a new avenue of sales.

Recent acquisition for a serious home cook. I cure my own bacon amongst other items and wanted a slicer that would be up to the task. This definitely does that. I cold smoke my bacon, so would recommend chilling the bacon in the freezer for about 30-40 mins pre slicing. It then slices beautifully. I chose this option as I wanted a tray capacity for a reasonably sized rasher.

Awesome slicer! We've had it for a month and it is so easy to use. We tuck a piece of wax paper underneath to catch the meat an fit works like a charm. Great buy!
Viktor L. from Euro Food Posted on 11/12/2013
Not only does this slicer look clean and polished in my catering business, it holds up to the hundreds of pounds of meat we slice weekly in the peak season. When we are ready to add on another it will be the Avantco SL512
Steven C. from Country Club Catering of WNY Inc. Posted on 06/11/2013
Fantastic buy at a price we were very happy with. Service is fantastic. Contact people were helpful and had good attitudes. Shipping was timely and they even helped unpackage our equipment.

This slicer is not the best! It does not have the catch tray for the bits of meat and cheese,It is very hard to clean and not easy to take apart

Avantco builds their slicers to serve the entry-level customer. Their slicers are hundreds less than their competitors, which help a great many folks get their business off the ground. To compare them to cars, these are your "people movers", designed to get someone from point A to point B--and they do that well. The other brands are similar to luxury car brands with the fit, finish, and features you'd expect from a product that costs at least fifty percent more. For busier, established businesses, it may serve you well to step up to one of those premium brands. Our Slicer Buying Guide is a great resource for choosing a slicer and our Slicer Cleaning Kit is a great set of tools to help you clean your slicer more easily. As far as a catch tray, not even the premium brands include that.

We been using this slicer for about seven months. A bearing went after a couple months in the table that slides back and forth, it still works fine. It just makes alittle noise.
