Customer Reviews

This is a nice Slicer, it last 2 years and 8 months the motor went out.. Dad's is open from 7 am to 10 pm. 7 days a week. We just got the next model up with the 1/2 HP motor. Hope to get 5 years or more out of this one.

This slicer was way better then expected, I bought it 4 years ago and its still going strong. Works great for my pizzeria cutting various cold cuts and cheese as well. Lowpriced but very good slicer.

Great item! I shopped around thinking that the price of slicers resulted in their quality and I was wrong. This slicer holds up to daily use at two different restaurants and has never had an issue.

For the number of times that we use this slicer (which is about medium duty), it met our expectation for the price. It works great and is easy to clean. I would not recommend it for a business that needs a heavy duty slicer.

I've only used this a few times so far, but it's been awesome. Slicing things super see-through thin and thicker with no problems. I almost got the bigger motor model but I think that would have been a waste of money and this guy works great.

I've been using this for the last couple months and its been perfect. Being able to adjust the thickness is great and the bigger tray size allows for bigger slices.

Brought the slicer to to slice homemade slabs of bacon. No issues cutting through a frozen slab of bacon creating uniform thickness slices. I was even able to cut slabs wider than product tray by tilting the slab and feeding it into the blade.

This product works as it should. Webstaurant's prices are by far the best around! I am a huge fan of all their items, so happy to have found Webstaurant!

Great slicer. We have been using it for daily deli and cheese. Works great and no issues. We aren't high volume with the deli meats, but do cut with it each day without any issues.

This is one great machine right here! Cleans and works amazing! Cuts to any thickness you want, from lunch-meats to steaks to pretty much anything you want!

This is serving its purpose in my small cafe, it replaced a more expensive machine, but we use it mostly for veggies , some cheese , fresh beef roasts and not more than an hour a day..if you need a light duty slicer this is fine

the cost was very affordable and worked as if it was very expensive.. the quality is very sturdy. I'm really glad that I decided to purchase this slicer

Overall, this is a good slicer. However, the backing plate got bent and we were told by the company that we must have dropped it. We literally haven't moved it since we've bought it. Kind of lame. This isn't webstaurant.com's fault of course. The knob's handle is made of plastic and will break if tightened really well.

This slicer slices cheeses and hams effortlessly. It is so simple to operate, that even first timers can get the hang of it and slice perfect slices.

So far we are very happy with our new slicer. I can already tell that we will not have a lot of waste with this unit. Fairly light weight so we've told our employees to treat with care.

Bought this slicer for my restaurant in 2013 to slice cheese. I was looking for a cost effective slicer as it does not see heavy use. This has served our purpous very well, I slice cheese once a week and have done so for 2 years with no problems at all if it were to be used to slice for hours every day I could see where it might be a little too light duty but for the occasional use it does a great job, can;t beat it for the money.

This is a great slicer. Says it won't cut cheese but that must mean for large operations. We cut 16 lbs of cheese a week and it works just fine. Our volume is only about 40lbs of ham, salami, cappy a week and this one handles it perfectly.

Slicer works as advertised and is pretty easy to clean up. I feel that there is more overspray when slicing than my other brand slicer.

I think this machine would be great for light duty...we may have over used it because the motor seems to be slowing down...but to be fair it did say for light duty.
