    slicer great meat price clean Easy slicing blade small works

    decent unit for small operations or mobile food vendors. Bought this 2 years ago and still works good for my needs with no real issues. Some areas are hard to clean but overall straight-forward product.

    from Spudz LLC Posted on

    This slicer is great for our small food truck and other low volume operations. The blade easily slices meats however is not powerful enough for cheeses. I would have given it five stars but it is more difficult to clean than higher end models and it could be nicer it was not angled so high for the slice.

    I use this great machine to slice my beef. It has thickness setting that allows you to choose the right size for your meat. I use the spray to wash the machine so its relatively easy to clean

    from Organic Fusion Teahouse Posted on

    This slicer works great, and is the perfect size for a smaller operation. The blades come apart to make cleaning easier, but there are some nooks and crannies that can be a little difficult to clean.

    from The French Press Coffee Co. Posted on

    I bought this slicer to make my life easier... unfortunately, it has done the opposite. It is very difficult to clean - even though I spent the extra money to get the cleaning kit. When slicing it spits product out the sides and the top that get caught up in the blade... truly a mess and truly messy. DO NOT BUY.

    Lowest rating we have given a product. We researched slicers before purchasing this one. It was the same size blade, with a bigger motor than our last one. We use it for two fully cooked sliced meats and potatoes for chips. That's it. Not even 2 hours a day total. First of all, the tray was smaller than our old slicer with the same blade size, so we had problems slicing our brisket. We made it work, but it was a thorn in our side to start. Fast forward 3 months, the blade starts slipping so we have our equipment company come look at it. The motor is shot. Really sucks, I haven't even started the claim process yet, we had to have a slicer that day so I found one local and bought it, but even with the great price we got and the average use that all the onsite guides told us that a medium duty product would work it's just dissappointing to deal with the hassle. Even if I do a warranty claim, the biggest hassle was the small loading tray, and I already have a replacement. I guess it can be a back up.

    We bought this as a second slicer to use exclusively on vegan products. It is very small, and I would worry if we needed to use it a ton, but it is perfect for our needs. It is not hard to clean, and it doesn't take up too much counter space.

    from Durham Co-op Market Posted on

    Very nice, small and compact slicer. We will be using this to slice charcuterie, and I feel that it will hold up well in our small restaurant. The only negative comment is that cleaning it can be a bit difficult as there is a protective guard around the blade that catches debris easily.

    from The Amsterdam Posted on

    Perfect size for medium volume lunch. We serve cafe lunch and use 3 meats. Easy storage also since its small and light weight. Highly recommend for low-medium volume cafe that serves sliced meat.

    from Rocky River Coffee Co. Posted on

    Amazing slicer I was hesitant about getting this because I wanted to use it to cut cheese and meats. I cut 6 ponds of provolone cheese and 5 pounds of mozzarella and then 3 pounds of sharp cheddar all about 1/8" thick and the slicer never bogged down or got boged down. I LOVE this slicer and cut paper thin slices of roast beef just freeze the ram meat for about 15 to 20 minutes and slice away works amazing. I highly recommend this slicer to any one.

    First let me say the customer service is 5 star. They are as close to a computer generated customer service response as you can get. I received two of these units and both where damaged and both returned. Extremely poor packaging and rough handling cased the problems. Not going to give it another try.

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry you received a damaged unit but we were glad to assist you in the return process!

    Awesome machine. Use to cut strips for beef jerky we make. Awesome generic machine is made great for the price you pay. Would def recommend

    Posted on

    We decided to try this slicer for 2 reasons, its compact design and its price. The compact design is absolutely necessary in our small kitchen, where work space is at a minimum. So far it had done a great job for us. It slices the meat well, and it is pretty easy to clean. The smaller cutting surface requires a few more motions when using but the saved space is well worth it. So far it powered thru anything we send at it. When we bought this initially we worried because slicing cheese is not recommended. We found it can slice cheese, just don't force it thru, and take a little more time to let it cut and it works fine. I would recommend this for any kitchen that is highly limited in space.

    this machine is pretty good but i didn't realized that it doesn't cut frozen meat. no problem, i just let it thaw out and cut it afterward.

    The slicer guard wedges the meat on the backside of blade, if removed it will throw the meat out the backside. It has a 1" inch block which prevents slicing all the product. Creates allot of waste.

    from Raymondo's Pizza & Summertime Treats Posted on

    I'm having a bit of trouble with this meat slicer. I have another one, a different brand, and this one seems to "splash up" when slicing certain things so we rest a towel on top of it. Otherwise, it works really well and for the price, it can't be beat!

    Posted on

    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.
