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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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 buy and trust anything by Hobart! Great products that are durable and last. These products are worth every cent you will spend! Outstanding!!
    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.
    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

    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!
    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
