I am curious if anyone here has or has had a non-commercial/homeowner sized meat slicer that they would be willing to comment on...............good & bad info. would be helpful

I own just about every other piece of processing/kitchen tools but that one, I am thinking about asking for one for Christmas from my kids, but would like to have some hands on feedback from someone who may use one.

Thanks

No, not a bandsaw.

A meat slicer like they use in a deli to slice meat/cheese with.

I have been looking for one also. After my experiences with cheap electric grinders, I have been holding out to find a used commercial grade slicer at auction for a good price.

I hear ya there, but the commercial ones are dang expensive and rather large, I am limited on space at the moment. It would be nice once I finish my workshop and get the processing room done.

We have one that we use to cut up meat for jerky and have been using it for 3 years and it is really great! I can't remember the brand but it came from Lowes I think.

I'm thinking about it, and it seems hard to justify purchasing a butcher quality meat slicer unless you do a serious amount of deli meats, have a very large family or are making it available for your friends and neighbors to use.

I'm not sure what the breaking point is, but a razor sharp carving knife should get the job done for for 2-4 people, no problem. Unless you just want one to be a complete butcher, in which case, go for it. I'd check around for a used one. A butcher shop recently closed in Memphis and they had a online auction of everything including a 9 inch thick butcher's block that I would have LOVED to got my hands on.

I got a cheap one from service merchandise about 7 years ago that works fine for slicing roasts and any boneless cuts.
great for corned venison and deli meats.
have seen them at wal mart for around $60.
easy to clean and work fine.

I have a cheap one that works great, but I hardly ever use it. I just use a sharp knife. Takes too long to clean up slicer.

I want one for slicing roasts(both after cooked for sandwiches & before for like Philly cheese steaks) also, I do pork butts/shoulders with a bacon cure and want to be able to make uniform slices with them.

Bought one from bass pro shops a couple years ago. Does a great job for my needs. But a little tricky to cut jerky with.

I bought this one,and its been really good to me.I cut 6 deer up with it last year.And 1 so far this year,and I can't complain about it.It is definatly a must have for making jerky.I'll pull whole roasts out,and leave them frozen and slice them real thin for jerky..

I got one from dicks used it one time and took it back. But I am use to commercial one so I knew it would not do what I wanted. I will buy a large commercial one some time used. The cheap ones do not have enough power from what I seen so far.

I work in the food industry. Go to a used kitchen supply store, I know there are two in Knoxville or watch Craigslist for restaurant equipment. Hobart and Globe are the best. Spend $250-300 and you will get a good one. Key is to keep it sharp using the attached sharpner and oil the glide on the meat tray. You can get replacement parts at Hubert.com or restaurantwarehouse.com. well worth the investment. I just got an old one from where I work and bought the needed parts for less than $100 public price and now I have a $1000 slicer that cost me in total $225
