Meat Slicer
« on: September 21, 2020, 07:48:36 PM »
While it is not exclusive to pizza making it sure makes slicing stick pepperoni easy. I bought this as a birthday present to myself a few weeks ago. So far I like it and keep thinking of new things I can use it for.

It is a Chef Mate 615A. So far it hasn’t had any issues cutting what I put on it. I totally understand it isn’t a Hobart but for $180 shipped it is working out just fine.

I have a similar model to use for home baked bread, and it does a nice job on that as well.

So far not too bad. I use a wet rag to wipe it down with a bit of soap and then another wet rag to get rid of the soap. I haven’t tried to take the blade off or anything yet.

How is that holding up for you? I have been looking at getting a slicer to turn rib eye into cheese steaks so your long term impressions are of interest.

Nice looking slicer for the price. What is the blade diameter?
I bought this one for $125 used (like new) and it has served me well. I think it's a 10" blade.

$125 is a good deal. Yours looks just like my 10" Avantco.

Good deal.  I've been eyeing that 10" Beswood - it seems like a good slicer.

I've got the 10" Beswood on a Black Friday special- mainly for slicing cured meats. I spent hours pouring over reviews before selecting the Beswood. It is well-built and easy to use and clean.

That's good to hear Bill. Can you slice cured meats very thin? How do you think it would do on a rare roast beef for Italian beef?  Thanks!

Jeff,

Yes, paper-thin. I haven't sliced hot roast beef, but have sliced rare cold roast beef for smørrebrød. Did a great job!

I appreciate that. After buying a couple poor home models, I'm ready to try again.

Paper thin prosciutto?  My Kroger used to be able to do it fine - I'd tell them as close to zero as possible - then suddenly they couldn't get below .5 (or maybe 1) without shredding it.  Possibly they're just old, grumpy, and/or lazy (seriously this could be the problem with that bunch), or maybe dull blades.  My HEB can still do it and told me it's .25 (I have no idea what that is in actual length units).

Haven't tried to slice prosciutto on the Beswood. Feel free to send me a whole leg and I'll try it out and report back.  ;D

Do any of these come with a blade sharpener like the Hobart? I mean even if it's it's own design different than Hobart.... just can sharpen it's own blade?

The Beswood has a built-in knife sharpener that you rotate into position over the blade. It has both sharpening and deburring positions. Have not had to use it yet, but looks easy and well-designed.

The Beswood has been great. Thank you again Bill.

FYI I was looking around at other similarly or slightly cheaper ones...they lacked the diameter and or power of the Beswood but look similar.

I'm keeping an eye on it during Prime days since Bill said he got it on a black friday sale.
