Picking out the right commercial meat slicer for your business is an important choice. That’s why we’ve broken down the key factors to consider when shopping for the one that’s right for you. First, consider how frequently you plan to use your slicer. For light duty work, about an hour or less per day, an entry level slicer will work fine. The next step up is our mid-tier models, which offer more power and durability for several hours of use per day, at a price point affordable for most businesses. Finally, premium meat slicers are the best of the best, in terms of strength, durability, and consistency, giving you unmatched power that will stand up to constant daily use. Next, find whether you need an automatic or a manual slicer. Automatic units move product back and forth against a blade for safe and efficient high volume slicing. But for the average deli or sandwich shop, a manual meat slicer will do the trick. These units are probably what you’re most familiar with, requiring an operator to manually slide products across the blade for slicing. Other factors to consider when shopping for a meat slicer include blade size, horsepower, and ease of sanitation. We offer models with various blade sizes and power options, including many that are NSF listed. If you’re looking for more deli or butcher shop products, take a look at our selection of food paper wrap and deli take out containers.

    The slicer worked great for 13 months and then the motor went out. As we use it 5 days a week, we needed a replacement fast. Good luck with that, all the sites including Webstaruant were out of stock on this motor. The motor is expensive. So, looks like you have to buy a whole new unit since you cant get the motor in a reasonable amount of time. I would not recommend. Unit 1 month out of warrantee.
    Thank you for your feedback, Thomas. We are sorry we do not currently have stock of the replacement part you need. We should have stock in a few weeks. Thank you for your patience.
    The Avantco slicer has a lot of power for a small slicer. Great for small commercial kitchens and restaurants. Highly recommended!! Great for moderate use
    I purchased this a couple weeks ago, so my use of this deli slicer is limited. I love the quiet purr of the slicer when in use. I removed the little plate behind the slicing blade. I also left the sharpener off, so not to accumulate debris. It kicks up a little bit of meat debris, but it seems to only happen when using a very thin setting. This slicer is fairly easy to clean, assuming there is a way to let water and sanitizer to drain over it. Remember to remove the plate in front of the blade to get that clean and sanitized as well. In the online description, I thought it said for slicing cheese as well, however, the instruction booklet stated that the model I purchased does not slice cheese. :-/
    Great for the price, been using for 2 years and its still holding strong! Would buy again if we were in need of another slicer
    Great slicer, easy to use. I have never ever used a sliced. Frankly I was very scared i cutting my finger off. But this slicer is great for beginners. Its simple to use, very safe and easy to clean. I havent lost a finger or hand yet!
    Avantco SL312 12" Manual Gravity Feed Meat Slicer - 1/3 hp is very good product. Brand is very good. webstaurant store cutomer service is very good.
    This product is excellent so far. I own a 3 service restaurant, and use the slicer frequently I was a little worried at first about the heavy use of this machine, as i had a pretty large Hobart slicer prior. It has passed the test so far. My only complaint is there is a small crevice that is nearly impossible to clean unless you get a tool to completely remove the blade. I use a decent size "pip cleaner" style brush instead.
    Great price for this product. We have been using it for almost 4 years and it still works great. We are a very busy restaurant so it gets used a lot, highly recommend.
    Avantco SL309 12" Manual Gravity Feed Meat Slicer - 1/3 hp is a solid tool. We are happy to have this. It is reliable and still works well for us.
    Great meat slicer. I have had mine for a few years with no problems. I would recommend it to any one in a restaurant. Cleans up fairly easy as well.
    Works perfect for our daily use of slicing prime and other lunch meats as well as onions. Simple machine, easy to clean. And very affordable. The size is perfect, doesn’t take up too much counter space. Just wish the slicing options went a little higher for thickness, but hasn’t been a real big issue.
    this slicer is definitely a great deal for what you pay. the blades are super sharp (and can be sharpened on the slicer) and it doesn't take up a large footprint. it slices everything as thin or thick as i need and is pretty easy to disassemble and clean.
    We spent a lot of time finding a meat slicer within our budget and we are so happy we got this one, easy to clean, great thin slicing, very please with this machine,
    We've head this slicer for about 6 months now. It works well for the amount of items we slice on it and is very smooth. Good slicer for medium usage.
    After using hobart and globe brand slicers in the past, this machine handles any job just as good as the other brands. I will be the same one in the future!
    This meat slicer from Avantco has really helped us save money. We are able to buy large quantities of meat and slice it ourselves for our crepes. It is smooth and easy to use. Would recommend buying!
    Fine piece of equipment here, we use it for a bunch of different items, never has failed us. Easy to clean and by far my favorite slicer made! Great buy!
    The size options are really what i needed. The arm that is usted to cut the Meat is really smooth and Easy to put. Great machine for our restaurant.
    This is a decent slicer for the money. It has a built in sharpener and an adjustable size selector. Definetely does the job for the money.
    It is a nice product. It works good, and is very easy to use. If you are starting your business it will good for you-expecially for the price-, but for professional use I don't recommend it.
