    Very nice product. i recommend it. It handles well heavy duty tasks, easy to handle and the size is good. Easy to clean as well
    I've had this slicer for about 2 years. Never had any issues. We use it daily to cut meat and cheeses. I would for sure buy again!
    Was uncertain before buying this product because always hesitant to buy a product that is expensive but so happy we went with this brand! slices the meat really well and is easy to clean.
    I am very impressed with this slicer. It is light weight yet tough - I have sliced cooked meat, cold-cuts (pepperoni and salami) and vegetables (tomatoes, onions).
    This slicer is fantastic for small, medium and large operations! We use a series of these in all of our operations! FANTASTIC PURCHASE! I would recommend for sure.
    So far so good. This slicer seems to work as well as the Hobart I've used in the past. It is manual, but if you are slicing most meats, especially delicate meats like roast beef, you need to be at the slicer anyway. It simply removes that temptation to set it on auto. I have a couple complaints, it could be easier to clean, but none the less, the slider comes off and the blade cover does too, so the only difficult place to clean is right behind the blade. We'll see how long it lasts. I'm sure it won't be as long as a hobart, but for this price point, it can't really be beat.
    decent unit for small operations or mobile food vendors. Bought this 2 years ago and still works good for my needs with no real issues. Some areas are hard to clean but overall straight-forward product.
    This slicer is great for our small food truck and other low volume operations. The blade easily slices meats however is not powerful enough for cheeses. I would have given it five stars but it is more difficult to clean than higher end models and it could be nicer it was not angled so high for the slice.
    I use this great machine to slice my beef. It has thickness setting that allows you to choose the right size for your meat. I use the spray to wash the machine so its relatively easy to clean
    This slicer works great, and is the perfect size for a smaller operation. The blades come apart to make cleaning easier, but there are some nooks and crannies that can be a little difficult to clean.
    I bought this slicer to make my life easier... unfortunately, it has done the opposite. It is very difficult to clean - even though I spent the extra money to get the cleaning kit. When slicing it spits product out the sides and the top that get caught up in the blade... truly a mess and truly messy. DO NOT BUY.
    We are sorry you are having trouble with this slicer, our Customer Solutions Team will contact you shortly!

    Lowest rating we have given a product. We researched slicers before purchasing this one. It was the same size blade, with a bigger motor than our last one. We use it for two fully cooked sliced meats and potatoes for chips. That's it. Not even 2 hours a day total. First of all, the tray was smaller than our old slicer with the same blade size, so we had problems slicing our brisket. We made it work, but it was a thorn in our side to start. Fast forward 3 months, the blade starts slipping so we have our equipment company come look at it. The motor is shot. Really sucks, I haven't even started the claim process yet, we had to have a slicer that day so I found one local and bought it, but even with the great price we got and the average use that all the onsite guides told us that a medium duty product would work it's just dissappointing to deal with the hassle. Even if I do a warranty claim, the biggest hassle was the small loading tray, and I already have a replacement. I guess it can be a back up. Read Less Read More
    We appreciate your review, James! Our Customer Solutions team will contact you shortly regarding warranty information.
    We bought this as a second slicer to use exclusively on vegan products. It is very small, and I would worry if we needed to use it a ton, but it is perfect for our needs. It is not hard to clean, and it doesn't take up too much counter space.
    Very nice, small and compact slicer. We will be using this to slice charcuterie, and I feel that it will hold up well in our small restaurant. The only negative comment is that cleaning it can be a bit difficult as there is a protective guard around the blade that catches debris easily.
    Perfect size for medium volume lunch. We serve cafe lunch and use 3 meats. Easy storage also since its small and light weight. Highly recommend for low-medium volume cafe that serves sliced meat.
    Amazing slicer I was hesitant about getting this because I wanted to use it to cut cheese and meats. I cut 6 ponds of provolone cheese and 5 pounds of mozzarella and then 3 pounds of sharp cheddar all about 1/8" thick and the slicer never bogged down or got boged down. I LOVE this slicer and cut paper thin slices of roast beef just freeze the ram meat for about 15 to 20 minutes and slice away works amazing. I highly recommend this slicer to any one.

    First let me say the customer service is 5 star. They are as close to a computer generated customer service response as you can get. I received two of these units and both where damaged and both returned. Extremely poor packaging and rough handling cased the problems. Not going to give it another try.
    Thank you for your review! We are sorry you received a damaged unit but we were glad to assist you in the return process!
    Awesome machine. Use to cut strips for beef jerky we make. Awesome generic machine is made great for the price you pay. Would def recommend
    We decided to try this slicer for 2 reasons, its compact design and its price. The compact design is absolutely necessary in our small kitchen, where work space is at a minimum. So far it had done a great job for us. It slices the meat well, and it is pretty easy to clean. The smaller cutting surface requires a few more motions when using but the saved space is well worth it. So far it powered thru anything we send at it. When we bought this initially we worried because slicing cheese is not recommended. We found it can slice cheese, just don't force it thru, and take a little more time to let it cut and it works fine. I would recommend this for any kitchen that is highly limited in space.
    this machine is pretty good but i didn't realized that it doesn't cut frozen meat. no problem, i just let it thaw out and cut it afterward.

    The slicer guard wedges the meat on the backside of blade, if removed it will throw the meat out the backside. It has a 1" inch block which prevents slicing all the product. Creates allot of waste.
    I'm having a bit of trouble with this meat slicer. I have another one, a different brand, and this one seems to "splash up" when slicing certain things so we rest a towel on top of it. Otherwise, it works really well and for the price, it can't be beat!
    This Avantco Meat slicer is perfect for our kitchen. We slice ham and swiss cheese and it works great. We can adjust the thickness and it is a quiet running machine. We highly recommend!
    Great low priced meat slicer. The price is right, but my only concern is difficulty cleaning the equipment components. Other meat slicers are designed to be easily cleaned and this one is a chore.
    good slicer , it does the job, little hard to clean it but I it does the work, easy to move it around and a good price
    This item arrived sooner than expected which made it even better. The blade is rather difficult to remove for cleaning. You have to take you time removing it and be extremely careful not to cut yourself because of the housing around it. I mean extremely careful. Overall, this is a handsome, well built slicer and exactly what I have been looking for.
    I owned a slicer made in Poland that I brought back from living in Prague, that lasted for more than 15 years. When the gear stripped and I couldn't get a replacement part, I found this slicer. This is a great value and high quality compared to the slicers sold in stores (it's not plastic)! Also look at the wattage of this slicer compared to the retail ones, to get this power you would be paying twice this amount. Great Product! Great Price and deliver time was also excellent.
    This is a nice slicer. We don't have a lot of slicing but it is really nice to have this slicer for a reasonable price. We didn't want to have to invest thousands of dollars to get a slicer for our Bistro.
    Good meat slicer, working as expected, good price, easy to use. However, we hope it can be easier to clean. So far so good :
    Solid slicer. For an economy item. Not heavy duty but we don't need a ton of work. Mostly prepping chips and cured meats. Easy to clean, Dummy proof
    Honest review for the price it's amazing as something to start off with the blade can be better but all in all it comes back to the price
    It's perfect for slicing a few blocks of cheese a week. It's definitely much more "powerful" than the slicer we were using and gets the job done much quicker. My only gripes are 1) there is a nut/bolt behind the blade that sometimes catches the cheese slice and tears it 2) there isn't a "tray" underneath to catch the cheese 3) cleaning this thing is kind of a difficult. The instructions (or lack thereof) weren't all that descriptive, and we can't really seem to figure out the best way to clean this thing. Our old slicer was simple to dismantle and we could run parts of it through the dishwasher, but we've pretty much been wiping this one down bc it doesn't really come apart. Definitely recommended for light duty, but wish it were easier to clean.
    Great meat slicer for a great price. Who says that deli slicers have to cost thousands of dollars? This does the job and does it well!
    Slicer is ok. Good buy for the price but not the best had to replace and fix couple of times. Wont last long just ok
    We use this meat slicer for our chicken and salami and it works out pretty well. There are times that the blade gets jammed, but it is easily fixed by cleaning up the area surrounding the blade.
    Great slicer for the price. We use it 2-4 times a week to slice meat and cheese for a coffee shop. Does the job and we would recommend it for lighter use.

    I am really disappointed of webstaurant store. I bought it more than a month ago, and I can't still use my slicer. By mistake, I bought a smaller slicer, so I request a refund. The personnel at my restaurant had opened it and test it, so they didn't made me the return, since the slicer was used (in their opinion because it was brand new). It was ok, I was going to use it anyway, so I request that they sent it back to me. But it arrived with bumps, scratches and with some parts broken. Instead of offering me too replace it, they offered me credit. My experience buying equipment for my restaurant at this website was really terrible. If you can, pay a little bit more at amazon or another store that has better customer service. But don't buy here. I will never buy here.
    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your slicer has given you so many issues. A Customer Solutions Representative will remain in contact until the issue is resolved.
    Great price, we have used several times already and seems to work really well. We do cut alot of cheese with it for our Burgers, with no issues.
    This slicer is amazing. Its super quite and works really well Its like a ninja slicing meat.. The best decision we have made by far.. We love this thing.. Will recommend to everyone
    Great little slicer. It is good for slicing deli meats, soft cheeses, and vegetables. I wouldn't recommend it for harder items such as frozen food or hard cheeses. Overall a great item for what I need it for. Will probably buy another slicer that is a little more heavy duty for the harder items.
    We received the slicer on time and in fine condition. We have only used it once and it worked like a dream, slicing roast beef. Far better than the other two slicers we had in the past. Great so far. Hoping it will continue.
    Good quality product, perfect for small kitchens like cafeterias. Constructed in a very strong aluminium, easy to wash, clean and operate. I recomended this product .
    Good slicer for the money. I don't slice a lot so it's good for minimal use. If you slice a lot I'd go with a bigger unit but this is worth the money for what I use it for.
    This is the best slicer for the money, great service from WEBstaurant Store, I have been in restaurant business for many years and say the ease of cleaning and use for the price can not be matched,
    The finding of this slicer was easy due to the information posted. Great slicer, Quality as expected, right size for the job. The price, shipping and attention is first class.
    This slicer was absolutely wonderful for what I need...not high volume slicing ...I usually do my cheeses for the sandwiches..a few hours a day..works great!!
    We are a coffee company that provides "box lunches" and other meats / cheeses for our guests. This slicer was the cheapest we could find but works well. While we know it isn't the best on the market, we feel like we got what we paid for. Be prepared for a messy work station and a bit longer cleaning process. It's good to go though.
    The Avantco SL309 (" Manual Gravity Feedmeat Slicer 1/4 hp. It is great for slicing your meats, cheeses, vegetables, and ect, just the thickness you like them for serving. We sre love ours. It is easy to clean.
    I have really enjoyed this Avantco Slicer, it has helped with the cost control and uniformity of cuts. I serve a lot of Roast Beef and it helps keep plate presentation the same. Would buy again.
    This is a great value! definitely worth the price and will surely pay for itself if you are working in a small deli or marketplace!
    What a great manual feed meat slicer! Great for small restaurants that want to prepare their own lunch meat! Good for slicing vegetables as well as some fruits!!!
    Great Value Commercial Slicer! Very sharp, light, easy to operate and clean. Perfect size for the unit of this kind. Very pappy and highly recomended....
    This is a great light duty meat slicer. Perfect for small operations like a diner or a mom and pop store. Heck, if you have a big family, why not get one for home use!
    My previous slicer broke down so I needed another quickly but at a price in the budget. For the amount of slicing we do, this a great deal. It even sliced firm roast beef without a problem.
    what a great slicer for the cost. low cost high value, works great cleans easy has been super strong for us. we use it several hours all day, and it keeps up with us.
    Wonderful product, used in the shop. Really easy to clean, easy to maintain, and very easy to train people to use. Product is efficient, and has great features.
    This 9" slicer by Avantco is perfect for catering. The slicer is light weight, easy to clean and maintain. It also has a built in sharpener.
