It does a great job at cutting meat. We have used it to cut ham and meats. We have not been disappointed so far. Great addition to our home.

Great meat slicer. I have had mine for a few years with no problems. I would recommend it to any one in a restaurant. Cleans up fairly easy as well.

For the price this slicer is not a bad deal. If you are looking for a high quality slicer-this is really no it. There is not a lot of safety feature with this slicer as with some of the higher quality ones. For minimal amount of slicing and a low cost option-this is the best product out there.

Great slicer. We have been using it for daily deli. Works great and no issues. We aren't high volume with the deli meats, but do cut with it each day without any issues.

This is a nice Slicer, it last 2 years and 8 months the motor went out.. Dad's is open from 7 am to 10 pm. 7 days a week. We just got the next model up with the 1/2 HP motor. Hope to get 5 years or more out of this one.

Great item! I shopped around thinking that the price of slicers resulted in their quality and I was wrong. This slicer holds up to daily use at two different restaurants and has never had an issue.

Chris Evans from The Grumpy Monk

For the number of times that we use this slicer (which is about medium duty), it met our expectation for the price. It works great and is easy to clean. I would not recommend it for a business that needs a heavy duty slicer.

Works perfect for our daily use of slicing prime and other lunch meats as well as onions. Simple machine, easy to clean. And very affordable. The size is perfect, doesn’t take up too much counter space. Just wish the slicing options went a little higher for thickness, but hasn’t been a real big issue.

Tyler Smith from The Junction

This is one great machine right here! Cleans and works amazing! Cuts to any thickness you want, from lunch-meats to steaks to pretty much anything you want!

We are very popular with our lunch time deli meats. This slicer is very nice and slices a lot of product in a no time.

I purchased this a couple weeks ago, so my use of this deli slicer is limited. I love the quiet purr of the slicer when in use. I removed the little plate behind the slicing blade. I also left the sharpener off, so not to accumulate debris. It kicks up a little bit of meat debris, but it seems to only happen when using a very thin setting. This slicer is fairly easy to clean, assuming there is a way to let water and sanitizer to drain over it. Remember to remove the plate in front of the blade to get that clean and sanitized as well. In the online description, I thought it said for slicing cheese as well, however, the instruction booklet stated that the model I purchased does not slice cheese. :-/

This is serving its purpose in my small cafe, it replaced a more expensive machine, but we use it mostly for veggies , fresh beef roasts and not more than an hour a day..if you need a light duty slicer this is fine

Donna Hughes from

this slicer is definitely a great deal for what you pay. the blades are super sharp (and can be sharpened on the slicer) and it doesn't take up a large footprint. it slices everything as thin or thick as i need and is pretty easy to disassemble and clean.

Overall, this is a good slicer. However, the backing plate got bent and we were told by the company that we must have dropped it. We literally haven't moved it since we've bought it. Kind of lame. This isn't webstaurant.com's fault of course. The knob's handle is made of plastic and will break if tightened really well.

This meat slicer from Avantco has really helped us save money. We are able to buy large quantities of meat and slice it ourselves for our crepes. It is smooth and easy to use. Would recommend buying!

I think this machine would be great for light duty...we may have over used it because the motor seems to be slowing down...but to be fair it did say for light duty.

This is a decent slicer for the money. It has a built in sharpener and an adjustable size selector. Definetely does the job for the money.

I've been using this for the last couple months and its been perfect. Being able to adjust the thickness is great and the bigger tray size allows for bigger slices.

Slicer works as advertised and is pretty easy to clean up. I feel that there is more overspray when slicing than my other brand slicer.

So far we are very happy with our new slicer. I can already tell that we will not have a lot of waste with this unit. Fairly light weight so we've told our employees to treat with care.

Brought the slicer to to slice homemade slabs of bacon. No issues cutting through a frozen slab of bacon creating uniform thickness slices. I was even able to cut slabs wider than product tray by tilting the slab and feeding it into the blade.

It is a nice product. It works good, and is very easy to use. If you are starting your business it will good for you-expecially for the price-, but for professional use I don't recommend it.

This product is excellent so far. I own a 3 service restaurant, and use the slicer frequently I was a little worried at first about the heavy use of this machine, as i had a pretty large Hobart slicer prior. It has passed the test so far. My only complaint is there is a small crevice that is nearly impossible to clean unless you get a tool to completely remove the blade. I use a decent size "pip cleaner" style brush instead.

Nick Crawford from

The size options are really what i needed. The arm that is usted to cut the Meat is really smooth and Easy to put. Great machine for our restaurant.

I've only used this a few times so far, but it's been awesome. Slicing things super see-through thin and thicker with no problems. I almost got the bigger motor model but I think that would have been a waste of money and this guy works great.
