In the market for a meat slicer
I looked on Amazon, they start at $60, then jump to $120, then $250+.

Do I really need the high dollar stuff? The $120 one is a 9” blade, 150 watts.

I've got stronger light bulbs.

I want one too. There are some used Hobarts out there for less than $800. When I had one of those Waring-Pro ones, if was horrible. If I didn't throw i away, it went to Goodwill.

I cook my own hams, roast beefs and pork tenderloins not to mention making jerky and bacon. I need one. Sorry to hear the $120 ones don't work well...

If you are looking at buying a meat slicer then spend the money and buy one. I do not waist my time looking at home equipment. I buy used entry level or commercial equipment if I am buying a purchase like a meat slicer. Same goes with my vacmaster p215 Food sealer.

I have an old Waring Pro that was my mother’s from probably the 60’s. I use it a good bit but only because it’s what I have. It’s not the best and will bind on you if too much pressure is put on it. I’ll get a better one when this one dies.

But I do use it. I cook whole roasts, hams etc...and slice thin for sandwiches. I have a boneless leg of lamb I’m going to cook today and I’ll let it get cold then slice thin and tomorrow I’ll have lamb sandwich’s with an au jus on a Kaiser roll.

re: In the market for a meat slicer
What are you slicing? Horse power is where it’s at. If you are slicing processed meats you can get by with less h.p. Roast and especially cheese can bind the blade and ware the motor out over time.
Storage is also something to consider. Good Commercial slicers are built solid and are not meant to be stored in-side the cabinet. A lighter residential slicer can be tucked away easily and pulled out when needed and when it’s time to slap the price on it for the next garage sale. Check out. webstaurantstore.com

I have a completely irrational desire for one of the red, hand cranked ones like this: $4,000 hand cranked slicer

I have that same slicer made by Advanco from Webstaurant Supply. Have had it for several years and love it. I also make my own bacon and it will slice slabs right out of the freezer.

re: In the market for a meat slicer
One major thing I recommend you investigate. Look at the back of the thing where the sliced meat comes out. Many slicers have a hump back there that makes slicing frozen or smoked things even. The sliced meat needs to be able to continue in a straight line not bend over a hump. It really messes up the slices on like a whole frozen rib eye.

re: In the market for a meat slicer
I saw several slicers at different price points at Ducote's recently. They were not too expensive as I recall.
