I read a lot of reviews about slicers before settling on this one, I hadn't been able to find one below $100 anywhere. So of course I was skeptical about this one, but I know how great wal mart is with returns, so I thought why not.
I bought this meat slicer to slice venison and beef to make jerky, It came completely assembled which I thought was great, I cleaned all the contact surfaces prior to using, read the manual. I had all my meat already partially thawed out about 5-8 lbs, had my prep area all ready laid out, meat ready before I turned the unit on. I sliced all the meat in about 8 minutes. The unit worked perfectly, the blade never slowed down. I had it set for pretty thin (less than a 1/4 in) every slice turned out great!!! I do believe that if you were to use it longer than ten minutes that the motor might start to slow or smell, you would then have to wait 30 minutes before using again, but I already knew that before starting. Make good use of the time the motor is on and you will not be disappointed in this machine.
I removed the blade, washed it carefully, dried it and then took a soapy cloth and washed all the areas on the unit that contacted the meat and wiped down, put the blade back on, all took less than 5 minutes, since it came pre assembled, I just sat the unit back in it's original box to put up for storage. If you want something to use for a job less than ten minutes, then this unit is for you. I didn't find it to be flimsy, I found it to be very attractive. For the price, I am EXTREMELY happy with it.
