sliced thru a partially frozen Publix ham effortlessly. Yes, the rotation speed is low, but I spent 7 minutes of
cutting time slicing 6# of nearly perfect slices. It sliced so thinly, I actually set it a bit thicker.
The real key is cleanup. Gadgets that are a pain to clean sit in the box. This unit is easier to clean than any
commercial unit I ever used. Only 3 parts. Motor/base; food tray/pusher and blade. Tray/pusher flips to the right and is removed with a push on a spring-loaded button. Blade removes with the twist of a locking knob and you're left with the motor/base. Cleanup takes 5 - 7 minutes. Wipe/airdry for 15 minutes, 1 minute to reassemble and re-oil, back in the bag and box and you're done.
I saved 1/3 or more of the purchase price with the cost of my 6#'s of sliced ham, and the ham has much less salt, and isn't water added. The 6# of ham cost me $7.50, not $40 - $50. RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!
First I must express my positive views about this product. I had been using a 10” MNT slicer (which is a lemon), so I was skeptical about using a smaller less powerful model.
When I first turned it on it ran so slowly I didn’t think it would cut, however it does a wonderful job. I easily cut through salami, and two hams.
So far that is all I’ve done.
It is a snap to clean. The other slicer took more time to clean than the cutting job I had.
Light weight is another plus; the MNT weighed about 80 pounds. This one is about 15 pounds and it doesn’t take up a lot of space.
Instruction say: Do not operate the appliance continuously for more than 10 minutes. Allow the appliance to cool down for one hour before second operation.
I set a timer so not to exceed the limit, however handling the cut products and getting them prepared gave me plenty of down time between uses. So I was able to complete the tasks without completely shutting down for any time.
Cons: Instruction say: The Food Carriage and Slicing Guard must always be used. The slicer tray will only support a 5 inch item with the food carriage handle in place. I opened it and used a quart plastic jar cap to push the meat along the tray until it was small enough to put the carriage handle in place.
Even thou the blade is 8.7” it only has 6.5 “cutting height. So I have to cut large items to fit.
The blade is a little tricky to reline up with the blade housing holes but still a lot easier than most.
Overall I am more than satisfied and very impressed with the performance of this unit. If Nesco made a 10” model like this I would buy it.
I recommend this slicer for new users and anyone needing a home use slicer.
So the question is what are you going to use this for?
As others say, the blade moves VERY SLOWLY. The slider is not smooth and doesn't grip the food well. Allows the blade to pull the meat down from the gripper.
And the blade is serrated, so you dont get that super clean cut.
On the pro side, it is pretty easy to clean.
So..what's it good for?
- Jerky ? Yay. It'll do great!
- Pho? Phorget about it. never go thin enough
- Proscuitto? Not even close. A hammer will do as good a job as this.
- Salumis? Depends on how thin. I like thin, cause then i can eat 20 slices
Bottom line is if you want to slice thin, this isnt' your unit.
One pro and con about it is how light weight it is. I like that it is light so we can move it around when we aren't using it. However, when cutting with it, it can slide around on the counter a bit since there is not much weight resistance. This is easily fixed by placing a dishtowel against the back side of it.
