There is no doubt that this tool is an extravagance -- both in cost and in storage space. But if you want to produce finely cut meats or melons, there simply is no other way, regardless of your knife skills.

At 80+ pounds, you won't be lifting this beast out except for special occasions or large parties. But when you want to achieve paper-thin slices of meats, etc., this will do.

The materials are one of the big differences between this and lesser brands. This is aluminum throughout, not painted to look like aluminum. It is cast.

It has a 1/3 hp motor, which is just fine; and a 12" non-serrated knife (blade), which also works just fine. It comes with a top-mounted, fully removable sharpener. One distinction between this and lesser brands is the angle of feed, which is about 35 degrees. It makes gravity feeding possible, whereas other brands curiously do not angle the feed trays as acutely. Frankly, I don't know why. Perhaps doing so binds less-powerful motors. Dunno.

If you're wondering how this could be 4-6 times better than many so-called "professional" slicers in the $300-$500 range, the main difference is accuracy and consistency. The precision is what you're paying for, along with intelligent design and materials that make cleanup a 15-minute job instead of a 45-minute to 1-hour chore -- if, as on some, it can be done at all (I'm talking to you, Chef's Choice 667 International Professional Electric Food Slicer with 10-Inch Diameter Blade).

I wish there were a knife-removal tool available, but haven't found one.
