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.

...how easy is it 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 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
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!
