Meat Slicer...why did I wait so long?

Really happy with the electric slicer I purchased a month ago, tonight we're slicing up left over rib roast for great french dip sandwiches.

Nice cooking toy to have around.

    Very nice.  Combing Craigslist for a couple of years in search of a Globe, Berkel, Hobart, Chefmate.  Haven't found one yet in my price range.

    I've been very curious about this too on a meat slicer.

  • With deference to the OP and his nice looking slicer, my Revel is easy to take apart and clean.

    My first job was at a deli washing dishes when I was 16, meat slicers like the one picture disassemble to several pieces and are relatively easy to clean. 
  • $389 on Ebay from China. I've been looking for quite a while.  We cook lunches for classes here at the shop, so we will use maybe 5/6 times a year.   Cleaning is a matter of wiping down, taking about 10 minutes.   Probably not good enough for professional use though(?).

    I got an inexpensive one (around $100) for x-mas and it works great for the 2-4 times a year I use it.

  • I was puzzled on just how much to spend on this type of kitchen item.   When we do use it, it will be for 20-25 servings so little more than simply personal use IMO.  Felt if I spent $100/150 it may crap out under such loads of work(?).  So jumped up in price to $350+ and hope it last for quite a while.  Meat slicers are expensive, can run $2/3k easy. 

     

    Who knows, it may crap out tomorrow...but tonight I'm happy with it. LOL

  • Krobertsmsn, is that slicer still for sale? If so, what make and model? Bob
  • Yes...I will post post info tonight. Also has spiral blade which I purchased extra $100 bucks if I recall correctly. Total package roughly $800. Commercial rig.

  • I was lucky enough to score one from my last employer.  It was just sitting around, so i asked, and he told me to take it.  It was labeled as "Intedge".  Made in Italy, 1/4 hp and it is very sturdy (10" blade).  The switch went out, and i found a replacement at Grainger for $36.00.  As near as i can tell mine is about 40 years old.  Had to completely disassemble it and free everything up.  It takes 10-15 minutes to clean.  Yesterday i sliced about 12 lbs of cheese with no problem.  You may want to check used restaurant supply places.

     

    If it was not given to me, i probably would not have bought it, as my use for it is limited.  Hopefully with more egg cooks that will change!
