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.

We just ordered it late May this year and it already stopped working. It has been only 4 months. We only use it 3,4 times a week.

Grelma I. from Grelma Bakery on 09/22/2020

This is an awesome slicer and it accommodates my needs. It has come in very handy especially during these lock downs, it has allowed me to be creative and also produce of outstanding cold cut sandwiches at home.

Samuel T. on 01/31/2021

It does a great job at cutting meat. We have used it to cut ham and meats. We have not been disappointed so far. Great addition to our home.

Yadira H. on 09/06/2020

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

John S. on 07/04/2020

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. :-/

Jennifer L. from Boxcar Bistro on 05/08/2020

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

Kali G. on 04/12/2020

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!

Vicki from Fergy's on 04/09/2020

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.

Muhammed Y. from Low Price Supply Inc on 02/24/2020

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.

Nick C. on 01/19/2020

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.

Brienne H. on 01/04/2020

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.

Distribution W. on 11/30/2019

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.

Carlene G. from Galbreaths Country Buffet on 09/30/2019

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.

Tyler S. from The Junction on 06/05/2019

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.

Elliot A. from Whole Health Dentistry on 05/30/2019

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,

Ioana H. on 05/26/2019

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.

Marion B. on 04/14/2019

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!

Jeff P. on 04/08/2019

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!
