    Slicer Easy great slices clean quality works meats price light

    For the price this slicer is not a bad deal. If you are looking for a high quality slicer-this is really no it. There is not a lot of safety feature with this slicer as with some of the higher quality ones. For minimal amount of slicing and a low cost option-this is the best product out there.

    from discovery Village at Naples Posted on

    This is a nice Slicer, it last 2 years and 8 months the motor went out.. Dad's is open from 7 am to 10 pm. 7 days a week. We just got the next model up with the 1/2 HP motor. Hope to get 5 years or more out of this one.

    from Dad's Bar & Grill Restaurant in Empire La. Posted on

    This slicer was way better then expected, I bought it 4 years ago and its still going strong. Works great for my pizzeria cutting various cold cuts. Lowpriced but very good slicer.

    from Bacio Pizza Posted on

    Great item! I shopped around thinking that the price of slicers resulted in their quality and I was wrong. This slicer holds up to daily use at two different restaurants and has never had an issue.

    from The Grumpy Monk Posted on

    For the number of times that we use this slicer (which is about medium duty), it met our expectation for the price. It works great and is easy to clean. I would not recommend it for a business that needs a heavy duty slicer.

    from Buon Amici Winery Posted on

    After searching and searching on different websites. We were happy to find exactly what we were looking for. And it's brand-new and a wonderful price point. This meat slicer will serve our diner for a long time

    from Lake Street Diner Posted on

    Works great

    This slicer is light weight and easy to go from place to place. Perfect addition for off site events. Easy to clean and store. Worth the money.

    from Epting Events Posted on

    Purchased this for my new deli and love it, so easy to use and clean. Would totally recommend this product, can not beat the price and quality.

    from Triangle Store & Deli Posted on

    I've only used this a few times so far, but it's been awesome. Slicing things super see-through thin and thicker with no problems. I almost got the bigger motor model but I think that would have been a waste of money and this guy works great.

    Posted on

    I've been using this for the last couple months and its been perfect. Being able to adjust the thickness is great and the bigger tray size allows for bigger slices.

    Brought the slicer to to slice homemade slabs of bacon. No issues cutting through a frozen slab of bacon creating uniform thickness slices. I was even able to cut slabs wider than product tray by tilting the slab and feeding it into the blade.

    This product works as it should. Webstaurant's prices are by far the best around! I am a huge fan of all their items, so happy to have found Webstaurant!

    from Pomodoros Cucina Italiana Posted on

    this 12 inch slicer is very easy to use and operate. The shipment came in very quickly and with no damages. I would recommend this slicer to everyone

    from Kendall's Bagel & More... Posted on

    Great slicer. We have been using it for daily deli. Works great and no issues. We aren't high volume with the deli meats, but do cut with it each day without any issues.

    from Charleston Sports Pub Posted on

    This is one great machine right here! Cleans and works amazing! Cuts to any thickness you want, from lunch-meats to steaks to pretty much anything you want!

    from Tightline Connection Posted on

    This is serving its purpose in my small cafe, it replaced a more expensive machine, but we use it mostly for veggies , fresh beef roasts and not more than an hour a day..if you need a light duty slicer this is fine

    Posted on

    the cost was very affordable and worked as if it was very expensive.. the quality is very sturdy. I'm really glad that I decided to purchase this slicer

    from nikki's take out and catering service Posted on

    this meat slicer should be taken of the market or priced reduced greatly. i would have returned this item but i tried t make it work due to the fact that the meat slicer that i was replacing was 15 years old and had seen better days. and it is sad to say that it does a better job than the this one that i bought to replace it with. Money not well spent and thrown down the drain. this machine was very hard to get to the parts that needed cleaning daily but i could have dealt with the little extra work. it was the actual usage of the machine that i was and still am very very disappointed with. the spin and hold on the meats would waste, shred, tear up and make some of my meats not presentable and even unusable. if i could return it i certainly would. but i tried using it past my point of return. it would waste at least a pound of meats on each loaf. i highly recommend removing this meat slicer from your inventory. i now have money. plus sitting in the corner of my store. sincerely disappointed: LYN WILKERSON

    from Glendale Country Store Posted on

    Thank you for the review. We're sorry this slicer has not held up to your uses. We do not recommend using this for more than one hour daily.

    Overall, this is a good slicer. However, the backing plate got bent and we were told by the company that we must have dropped it. We literally haven't moved it since we've bought it. Kind of lame. This isn't webstaurant.com's fault of course. The knob's handle is made of plastic and will break if tightened really well.

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    This slicer slices hams effortlessly. It is so simple to operate, that even first timers can get the hang of it and slice perfect slices.

    from El Habanero Posted on

    So far we are very happy with our new slicer. I can already tell that we will not have a lot of waste with this unit. Fairly light weight so we've told our employees to treat with care.

    from Monster Subs Posted on

    Quality product at a real good price. Slices what we need to be sliced. Easy to clean. Also got the cleaning kit to keep it working right.

    Posted on

    Slicer works as advertised and is pretty easy to clean up. I feel that there is more overspray when slicing than my other brand slicer.

    from The Weekday Cafe Posted on

    I think this machine would be great for light duty...we may have over used it because the motor seems to be slowing down...but to be fair it did say for light duty.

    from bridgemans Posted on

    Strong construction, very high quality knife. Easy to wash, clean and operate. High quality aluminium construction. Perfect for bakerys, supermarket, cafeterias and all commercial kitchen.

    from Colon Restaurant Supplies Posted on

    We ordered this slicer for our grille room. We are more than pleased with the price and function for our purpose. Glad for the websites suggestion, it saved us over 200 bucks over the other choice.
