Customer Reviews

We bought this as a second slicer to use exclusively on vegan products. It is very small, and I would worry if we needed to use it a ton, but it is perfect for our needs. It is not hard to clean, and it doesn't take up too much counter space.

Very nice, small and compact slicer. We will be using this to slice charcuterie, and I feel that it will hold up well in our small restaurant. The only negative comment is that cleaning it can be a bit difficult as there is a protective guard around the blade that catches debris easily.

Perfect size for medium volume lunch. We serve cafe lunch and use 3 meats. Easy storage also since its small and light weight. Highly recommend for low-medium volume cafe that serves sliced meat.

Amazing slicer I was hesitant about getting this because I wanted to use it to cut cheese and meats. I cut 6 ponds of provolone cheese and 5 pounds of mozzarella and then 3 pounds of sharp cheddar all about 1/8" thick and the slicer never bogged down or got boged down. I LOVE this slicer and cut paper thin slices of roast beef just freeze the ram meat for about 15 to 20 minutes and slice away works amazing. I highly recommend this slicer to any one.

We decided to try this slicer for 2 reasons, its compact design and its price. The compact design is absolutely necessary in our small kitchen, where work space is at a minimum. So far it had done a great job for us. It slices the meat well, and it is pretty easy to clean. The smaller cutting surface requires a few more motions when using but the saved space is well worth it. So far it powered thru anything we send at it. When we bought this initially we worried because slicing cheese is not recommended. We found it can slice cheese, just don't force it thru, and take a little more time to let it cut and it works fine. I would recommend this for any kitchen that is highly limited in space.

this machine is pretty good but i didn't realized that it doesn't cut frozen meat. no problem, i just let it thaw out and cut it afterward.

The slicer guard wedges the meat on the backside of blade, if removed it will throw the meat out the backside. It has a 1" inch block which prevents slicing all the product. Creates allot of waste.

I'm having a bit of trouble with this meat slicer. I have another one, a different brand, and this one seems to "splash up" when slicing certain things so we rest a towel on top of it. Otherwise, it works really well and for the price, it can't be beat!

This Avantco Meat slicer is perfect for our kitchen. We slice ham and swiss cheese and it works great. We can adjust the thickness and it is a quiet running machine. We highly recommend!

Great low priced meat slicer. The price is right, but my only concern is difficulty cleaning the equipment components. Other meat slicers are designed to be easily cleaned and this one is a chore.

good slicer , it does the job, little hard to clean it but I it does the work, easy to move it around and a good price

This item arrived sooner than expected which made it even better. The blade is rather difficult to remove for cleaning. You have to take you time removing it and be extremely careful not to cut yourself because of the housing around it. I mean extremely careful. Overall, this is a handsome, well built slicer and exactly what I have been looking for.

I owned a slicer made in Poland that I brought back from living in Prague, that lasted for more than 15 years. When the gear stripped and I couldn't get a replacement part, I found this slicer. This is a great value and high quality compared to the slicers sold in stores (it's not plastic)! Also look at the wattage of this slicer compared to the retail ones, to get this power you would be paying twice this amount. Great Product! Great Price and deliver time was also excellent.

This is a nice slicer. We don't have a lot of slicing but it is really nice to have this slicer for a reasonable price. We didn't want to have to invest thousands of dollars to get a slicer for our Bistro.

Good meat slicer, working as expected, good price, easy to use. However, we hope it can be easier to clean. So far so good :

Solid slicer. For an economy item. Not heavy duty but we don't need a ton of work. Mostly prepping chips and cured meats. Easy to clean, Dummy proof

Honest review for the price it's amazing as something to start off with the blade can be better but all in all it comes back to the price

It's perfect for slicing a few blocks of cheese a week. It's definitely much more "powerful" than the slicer we were using and gets the job done much quicker. My only gripes are 1) there is a nut/bolt behind the blade that sometimes catches the cheese slice and tears it 2) there isn't a "tray" underneath to catch the cheese 3) cleaning this thing is kind of a difficult. The instructions (or lack thereof) weren't all that descriptive, and we can't really seem to figure out the best way to clean this thing. Our old slicer was simple to dismantle and we could run parts of it through the dishwasher, but we've pretty much been wiping this one down bc it doesn't really come apart. Definitely recommended for light duty, but wish it were easier to clean.

Great meat slicer for a great price. Who says that deli slicers have to cost thousands of dollars? This does the job and does it well!

We use this meat slicer for our chicken and salami and it works out pretty well. There are times that the blade gets jammed, but it is easily fixed by cleaning up the area surrounding the blade.

Great slicer for the price. We use it 2-4 times a week to slice meat and cheese for a coffee shop. Does the job and we would recommend it for lighter use.

Great price, we have used several times already and seems to work really well. We do cut alot of cheese with it for our Burgers, with no issues.

Great little slicer. It is good for slicing deli meats, soft cheeses, and vegetables. I wouldn't recommend it for harder items such as frozen food or hard cheeses. Overall a great item for what I need it for. Will probably buy another slicer that is a little more heavy duty for the harder items.

We received the slicer on time and in fine condition. We have only used it once and it worked like a dream, slicing roast beef. Far better than the other two slicers we had in the past. Great so far. Hoping it will continue.

Good quality product, perfect for small kitchens like cafeterias. Constructed in a very strong aluminium, easy to wash, clean and operate. I recomended this product .

Good slicer for the money. I don't slice a lot so it's good for minimal use. If you slice a lot I'd go with a bigger unit but this is worth the money for what I use it for.

This is the best slicer for the money, great service from WEBstaurant Store, I have been in restaurant business for many years and say the ease of cleaning and use for the price can not be matched,
