Cuts meat nicely, but slicer is much louder than 30year old model 512. The meat grip does not hold the meats/cheeses in place b/c the 'spikes' on the grip are WAY to close together. When you pull back after a slice the product slips and moves and does not come back with the tray!! Going to have to have a machine shop cut out all the extra ones. Also makes a clicking noise on each slice due to the damper springs under the machine on the carriage bar. On previous models the springs are secured and padded. On this model they just hang loose. Used for a month now do not like this machine. Very aggravating to use. Also the end pieces of meats produced are much large than previous models.Have used Hobart slicers since 1976. Cannot recommend this model.

"What a great evolution of a classic slicer. This feels like the top of the line Hobart at way less. Even the safety features aren't annoying (Think mixer shields). Seriously, this is a great buy."Read More Reviews
Large Product Tray and Slide Rod
This model comes with an extra large product tray and slide rod extension so you can feed even the largest loaves of meat in a quick and efficient manner. It accommodates food up to 10” wide and 7 1/2" tall, and a wide, 11 1/2" carriage span allows for a smooth glide. This unit also operates with a 45 degree angle gravity feed that requires less mechanical pressure.
1/2 hp Motor
The durable poly V-belt drive system reduces maintenance without sacrificing the high-end performance you expect. The exclusive design extends the belt life while still producing optimal slicing, and the entire system operates much quieter than other standard slicers. Plus, the 1/2 hp motor provides added power for slicing cheese.
Carbon Steel Knife
The 12" chrome-plated carbon steel knife offers precision while providing several different slice adjustments. It consistently cuts meat, vegetables, or cheese from paper thin to 9/16" thick.
Easy to Clean
The anodized aluminum base features smooth, durable surfaces that are easy to clean, and since the base is one piece, there are no holes or crevices for food to collect.
A simple start/stop button with a protective seal is so user friendly, even your newest employee will have no trouble using it.
Removable Meat Grip
A removable meat grip with an ergonomic handle ensures that meat is secure in the slicer.
Features like the gauge plate interlock, carriage interlock, ring guard, and thumb guard all ensure operator safety during use and cleaning.

People Talk About:slicer great hobart best meat model clean easy meats price
This model replaced a 15 year old mid-tier Berkel, and we are highly disappointed with it. Three service calls so far, and it's only been a few months. We should have stuck with a Berkel, or Hobarts high end models.
Thank you for your review! A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact shortly. We apologize for all of the trouble, but if you are looking for a 12" Berkel slicer, our item number is 165827A.
This slicer is absolutely the best you can do for the price. Slices perfectly, easy to clean, and we’ve had no issues after quite a bit of use.
We've only been using the unit for about 5 months, but so far so good. Very easy to use and it performs great. We use it for cutting turkeys, hams and cheese. We tend to "shave" our meats, which it does a very good job at. Having the sharpener on board is great. A little bit of a pain to clean, but you'll get that with any slicer. Overall, I'd highly recommend.
I will not use anything but Hobart when it comes to a slicer. The EDGE-12 is a work horse that was designed to be used as a back-up, but is now a daily use.
Hobart makes a great slicer....but this one falls short of the Hobart name. I ordered two of these slicers to try them in 2 of our stores. They worked for 5 days...each. The drive motor sits very low in this unit. If you have someone that's liberal with a water hose, as in washing down a meat prep table, this motor will get wet. I does NOT have a protective plate under it like the higher end Hobart slicer. Yes, it's a good slicer, just baby it. Think about that before you spend the money.
We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry this didn’t work well for you! Please remember our Customer Solutions team is happy to help should you have any issues.
We've been using the slicer for a little over a month now. It's really awesome. I love it. Hobart is the best. The sliver works great for all of our lunch meat and cheese that we slice.
Great slicer. My butchers love it. It is powerful. We get large orders of sliced meats and this slicer gets the job done no problem.
This was perfect and the price was the best I found any were. Its the exact same model and the quality is very good. I will reccomend
This was perfect and the price was the best I found any were Thank you Finley Hobbs i will give youe Co. name to anyone I know that needs anything to deal with food
We purchased this Hobart slicer almost 2 years ago and it's still running strong. Easy enough to clean and doesn't take up too much space.
a great slicer!! Works great easy to clean. We are a light duty cafe. The staff has no complaints about it. Looks good and cuts big chunks of meat and cheese well
I will buy and trust anything by Hobart! Great products that are durable and last. These products are worth every cent you will spend! Outstanding!!
What a great evolution of a classic slicer. This feels like the top of the line Hobart at way less. Even the safety features aren't annoying (Think mixer shields). Seriously, this is a great buy.
This 12" hobart slicer is great for the price! I could not ask for more when using it the way we do. It is not the best of the best but if you're using it moderately it is perfect. After 9 months of use everyday, it is still cutting like it were brand new.
I bought this for my fire dept. It's a scaled back version of their cadillac but for a huge savings, it will work just fine for us!
