Thawed raw meat is too flimsy to effectively put through a slicer, it moves around too much, and little pieces tend to sling around. I don't thin that is specific to this model, its just a consequence of how these things operate. Put the raw meat in gallon zip lock bags, half to two thirds full, oriented in the direction you want to cut. Freeze it solid, then let the outer ¼ inch thaw (test by pushing your finger, you want about 1/4 inch of squishy). That’s how you want it when slicing. It cuts fairly easily, and there is a lot less slinging. See below for suggested modifications for how to further help slinging. I expect any firm meat product(summer sausage, pepperoni, etc) shouldn’t be a problem, but I haven’t tried.
Cleanup is about what I expected. If you want an easy to clean meat slicer, stick with a knife. If you have a lot of meat to slice, and especially if you want it sliced precisely and thin, you'll like this. The blade cover and carriage come off easily and can be put in the dishwasher if you want. Then remove the blade and clean it. Yes, you must remove the blade. Then wipe down everything still attached to the machine. Or better yet (after removing the blade!) a dog’s tongue is extremely flexible and well suited to removing little pieces of meat in hard to reach places. Then follow up with Clorox sanitizing wipes. (see photos for a highly trained cleaning beagle in action).
I bought this for personal use. I was having trouble justifying the purchase, until I considered that it’s less than the cost of having a butcher process 3 deer. I want the deer sliced for jerky (see recipe below), so that's something I can easily do myself with this machine. I wouldn't want to slice multiple deer with those flimsy little slicers, but this one does a nice job.
I bought the 10". The size is about right for me. I do not make use of the entire blade for the size of meat I slice, but I do make use of the entire carriage travel. As I understand it, with the smaller blade, you get less carriage travel – that is why I would not want the machine with a smaller blade. According to the manual, the carriage travel is only 165mm (6.5 inches). On my machine, I measure carriage travel at slightly over 8 inches, which quite usable in a machine this size. Basically, carriage travel is adequate to slice anything you can fit between the tray backstop and blade.
I suggest wearing Knit Kevlar Glove under disposable latex gloves. The Kevlar provides a bit of protection if you accidentally come in contact with the spinning blade. And if you’re slicing frozen meat, it keeps your hands warm.
I also suggest a cheap magnetic handle - it helps greatly when handling the blade while removed for cleaning (see photo for example magnetic handle).
The gap between the blade and the carriage tray is adjustable. If the gap is too much, then raw/thawed meat will slip into the gap and not cut so well. Basically, this contributes to slinging meat and making a mess. Mine came with the gap much larger than necessary. There are nuts that hold the tray on to the vertical arm. If you loosen the nuts, you can slide the tray closer to the blade & retighten. Be careful – there is some flex in the carriage and you do not want the gap so little it can contact the blade! If you adjust this gap, its on you to ensure your carriage cannot contact the blade (check the entire edge of the tray).
I took a strip of plexi glass, warmed it with a heat gun, and bent it around to make a splatter shield. About 3” wide seems to work well. I then made a small steel bar to go into the sharpener mount to hold the splash shield. In my first attempt, I used a piece of plexi glass I already had. It wasn't long enough to wrap all the way down the side of the slicer. It helps a lot, but I’ll get a longer piece of plexiglass so it can go down further. With a longer piece of plexiglass, I think it will contain all slinging.
Some reviewers mentioned labels coming off. Yes, there are some low quality labels that won’t stay on. I thought the messages on them were a silly statement of the obvious. I peeled most of them off before the first use. If you need those labels to safely operate the machine, you have no business operating it.
The only plastic on it is the plexiglass splash shield, and the various buttons and knobs. Other than that, its metal. The shell, carriage, etc are cast aluminum. The blade is stainless steel. This is a belt drive model, so if you overwork it you’re not in danger of stripping plastic gears like the cheap models.
My blade had a small casting void in it with a short crack. I didn’t notice it until cleaning after the first use. It *probably* wouldn’t cause a problem, and if it had a multi-year warranty I would have waited to see if the crack grew. But since it’s a 30 day warranty, I wanted to deal with it while I could. I contacted the seller (Yescom) and after some email back and forth they shipped me a blade directly. I preferred that over shipping the whole machine back to amazon (but one way or another, I wanted it dealt with during the 30 days). You may be surprised I’d still give it 5 stars with this defect – its because I grade on a curve. If it was a $700 Berkel, I would expect better. This is the type of thing you have to expect occasionally when buying the low cost import items. If you have a problem with this, I recommend you buy a Berkel or Hobart. Yescom was reasonably quick to resolve the issue, so thumbs up to them too.
You might have noticed there are several different brands of these on Amazon and elsewhere that look the same. I believe most of them are identical, sold under different brands. This is a common practice with import items. The manual that came with this slicer refers to it as model: WED-B250B-3, and SKU: 26MSC001-250-10. Other listings on Amazon for different brands of slicers identify them by this model # or sku. Even though it’s a represented as a different brand, I believe they are identical machines.
I have a metal lathe and milling machine that are like this (the brand of my mill is out of business, but I buy parts from another company for what is supposedly a different model – but it’s the same).
Why should that matter? Several things:
1) I picked which machine to buy based on price. The only variations between the products I could identify, is the maximum slicing thickness (10mm or 17mm). And there appears to be two different angles for the carriage (45 degrees, vs about half that). So I bought the cheapest one I could find with a 17mm thickness and 45 degree carriage.
2) If anyone finds parts available for machines that look like these, please post the information - regardless of the brand or company. If the parts look the same they probably are.
Comparison vs. Cabela's slicer:
The Cabela's slicer is about $150 more and looks similar. If you look carefully though, the cast aluminum base on the Cabelas has a different shape so they are not the same. Another difference is the pieces that hold the rod for the "meat pusher" on the carriage tray. On this machine, they are metal, on the Cabela's unit they are plastic. And last time I checked in Cabelas, these plastic pieces were broken on their display model. I see no point in paying considerably more for a unit with some clear deficiencies vs this model.
Here’s my recipe for jerky:
Add the following to a 1 gallon Ziploc bag: 1 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoon salt, 2 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 tablespoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1 cup soy sauce, ¼ cup liquid smoke, 2 tablespoon lemon juice, and about a cup of water. Water is necessary to have enough liquid to get all meat well covered. Mix thoroughly, then add 2/3 of gallon of meat, sliced at 2.5 mm. Add the slices of meat individually, not in one big glob or the marinade won’t get to each of the slices. Refrigerate for a day or so, then either prepare it in a dehydrator or freeze. For less than a gallon of meat, scale down proportionally.
Since this recipe is free of nitrates & nitrites, I run the jerky though the oven briefly after dehydrating to ensure it got hot enough to kill of bad stuff (4-5 minutes at 275).
Regarding the manual: parts of it are very usable, parts of it are so bad it’s funny. I'd like to end this review with an entertaining paragraph from the manual:
This machine uses a front to specially request: Such as because the temperature is too low and put a pole to encourage bore to add not enter oil, please with the oil gun aim at a route of travel slippery piece stalk 20 position A, B two with put a pole copper a set of the position add an engine oil and wait until to circulate invite half an hour behind aim at to put a pole to encourage bore to encourage with the oil gun. Use a times four hour each time to add engine oil, thank a cooperation!
The big molded plastic cover for the bottom has a broken area around one screw. We'll see if Yescom has acceptable customer service. This doesn't hamper the operation but I don't want a broken part. I would have immediately given this slicer 5 stars if it had a bad manual. The manual is several levels below bad. Easily the most useless I've ever seen. If you don't have a fair amount of ability to figure things out for yourself along with a high level of patience buy something different. If you're a good tech writer you might make a bundle by offering a good aftermarket manual for $10. A shame to ruin such a good product with documentation so bad. I suspect that this is behind some bad reviews.
