I've been thinking of buying an electric food slicer, but I'm having a hard time finding good reviews. Amazon.com reviews are all over the place. It looks like the Waring Pro and Rival machines aren't very durable. Chef's Choice seems to be the brand sold by Williams Sonoma, BBB, and Costco. Do I need to spend $300 or would a $150 version suffice?
Does anyone have a food slicer? Do you like it? Do you not like it?
I was thinking I could use to it slice blocks of cheese, salami, frozen ribeye (for shabu shabu and such), and maybe loaves of bread. Things that don't fall into the realm of the regular electric knife or mandoline (like, I could slice potatoes easily on the mandoline).
