This review is from: Waring FS150 Food Slicer (Kitchen)
This is a great tool. I've used it to slice meats, cheeses and vegetables all thick or paper thin with consistently good results. There is a learning curve, for example a very hot roast straight out of the oven will be difficult to slice. Let oven hot meat stand fifteen minutes (which should be a regular practice) and it will work just fine. As with any new tool, it takes some practice and effort...it isn't automatic. The upside is that you get to eat the practice material. I've read many reviews by folks whining about cleaning this tool... yes I said whining. I don't get it. Remove the blade and plastic food guide and wash in the sink (be careful the blade is sharp), wipe any debris in the blade housing (there's usually very little if any), wipe the whole unit with a damp paper towel to remove any food particles, spray the whole thing lightly with windex wipe dry and reinstall the blade. The whole process takes 3-4 miuntes.
