This slicer will not disappoint you, I have had it for about 1 month and I have made 6 batches of Jerky(london broil), cut up an 8 pound pork loin into thick chops, sandwich sliced 5lbs. of cheese and 4lbs. of ham. I use it every chance I get and it has a safety power button so little ones can't turn it on very easily. Would definantely recommend this slicer.
I got this in hopes of making my own beef jerky and sliced meats and veggies. In the instruction booklet, it says to use for no more than 10 minutes, then let cool for an hour before use again to prevent overheating. I don't think that qualifies it as commercial grade. other than that, it's not bad tho.
Had I known about the use/cooldown ratio, I probably wouldn't have bought it.
Nice slicer. I use it to make jerkey. Cleans easily.... good quality. I have no regrets buying this slicer......... looks like it will last a long time
We like to buy very large roast and slice them up. After breaking my wrist this was very difficult. The multiple depth of cut settings are great. I always like the roast sliced very thinly. I have not tried cheese or frozen food yet.
Bought about 3 months ago, used three times. Tonight won't work lost receipt so decided to take apart and fix, found brushes on motor have nothing to hold in place, just press fitted will have to be glued and reassembled will be able to fix just should last more than 3 uses. Unless you are mechanically inclined would not buy. The good is when it runs it does a very good job. Is much cheaper to buy a hole ham or roast and thin slice like deli than to buy prepackaged lunch meat.
I got this for my husband when his old Krups slicer died. At first he thought it was too big and would take up to much space, but now he loves it, and says that it slices everything from salami to bread evenly and quickly. He likes the parts of it that are in metal and says it feels secure and solid on the counter. He uses it everyday, so it does get a workout. The only thing that would make it perfect is if it folded up somehow. If it does have that capability I haven't figured it out yet. It looks really nice on the counter, fits in with everything and works exceptionally well. Definitely would recommend this product to other buyers.
Purchased March 23, 2009. Machine was noisy. removed blade for cleaning, found it to be fixed to a plastic ring gear w/lubricant present on the ring gear and its drive gear. Food would find its way to the gear would be very hard to clean properly. No mention of how to clean or what lubricant to use after cleaning. Machine is poorly disigned and cheaply made. MANUFACTURED TO FAIL.
Ok I bought this for my wife about a month ago.
and so far it has worked great. Cleaning is not a problem. she did mention she was afraid to wash the grease on the shaft area off. that grease is a food grade silicon grease and can be purchased at a hard ware store. To keep it running smoothly
Professional is only a word. Don't expect to slice as fast as at a deli. In some cases cold or slightly frozen products will slice better, like soft cheeses. Using PAM or a like product on the slicing tray support and slide bar will make things easier.
This is a really great product and I would recommend it to anyone. This food slices really thin and its cleans very easy. I'm really very happy I picked this product. This is a must have in any kitchen.
We bought this product after reading its review and after doing lots of research on other similar products. This slicer has met all of our expectations that we were looking for. We have sliced bologna and scrapple with it and both times, it has done the job great! It is a great product for the price and the clean up is a snap!. We highly would recommend this to others.
This slicer would actually be pretty decent if they would have designed a better way of attaching the blade. The plastic "coin-operated" nut that I loosely quote, "holds the blade on" (becasue it does everything but hold the blade on) ... grabs on the plastic blade mount when the motor is turned on, the blade spins in a direction that tightens the nut and then proceeds to loosen the hub from the threaded casting that the hub mounts to. After a short period of slicing, the blade begins to wobble, and just get looser & looser. I spent well over an hour trying to figure out a way to remedy this, when I finally found that removing the little black lock washer under the allen-headed screw in combination w/ using heavy-duty thread locker on the Allen screw (use care to barely snug the black screw) and then allow the thread-locker to setup overnight. This seemed to fix the problem so the screw won't back out during operation. I don't understand why the lock nut is under the screwhead, or why they couldn't have used thread-locker during assembly. So far it has been working fine, but after my first attempted use with everyone waiting for the brisket to be sliced... I was about ready to toss it out the window. Needless to say, if you're not mechanically inclined, let's just say, if you don't know what thread-locker is... buy a better quality slicer! You might just be wasting your money on this one ;)
The product is good overall but as advertised the blade is very shap; I find that thea blade is quite the opposite making it impossible to create very thin slices such as you might find in a deli.
Of the smaller wattage slicers under several hundred dollars, I liked this one. It stays put on the counter and has a higher wattage than others in the price range. The tilt is good so sliced food falls onto the catch plate, not jams up in the blade like some do. I slice & dry onions, beef jerky, etc. and use mine a lot.
Can you get a better slicer? Yes
Can you get a better slicer for the money? No Slices very well, good adjustment, good cleanup, not plastic, holds up well.
I was excited to get my new slicer, it arrived promptly . The tightening screw that holds the blade in place is made of plastic, as the blade attempted to spin I noticed the motor straining, the problem was that the plastic screw was gettin g tightened by the rotating blade and then restricting the ability of the blade to spin. I tried to loosen the plastic screw with the recommended coin which only bent the plastic. I returned this item without ever using. I would not recommend this product.
We are fully pleased w/ the Nesco Pro slicer, me, my wife and daughter have all used it, we have sliced 4 deer for jerky so far and it works flawlessly every time.
It does everything I want it to. Dont buy this and expect to start your own catering business, but it is a great deal for home use !!
First time use it sucked the meat into the blade and the blade stopped. the blade would no longer turn. I disassembled the unit to find they used a very thin cheap plastic drive gear that stripped on the first use. What a joke.
The day after we brought it home it was unpacked and on the kitchen counter going through the drills. We sliced cheese, meat, and even a bag of potatoes to make potato chips. It is easy to use and cleanup. Slices evenly and consistently with very little effort. Cutting wild game evenly with a fillet knive to make jerky was a task. And now, it is as easy as pushing a button and making a few passes!! If you have never owned a slicer before, this is a must have for a kitchen!
