Home Meat Slicers

Meat slicers are becoming more common in homes because of the wonderful benefits of slicing your own deli meats and cheeses yourself.  Meat slicers for the home are very affordable and extremely simple to operate.

Why Purchase a Home Meat Slicer?

Most of us grocery shop once a week and purchase enough deli meat and cheese to last us a week, well so we think.  How often do you come home after spending $20 or more at the deli just to have it go to waste?

It’s happened to me a lot, I would buy a pound of turkey, ham and cheese and even sometimes splurge on roast beef for $10 a pound, if it was rare enough.  I would always push everyone at home to eat the turkey and roast beef first so it didn’t go to waste, ham, salami and bologna always lasts longer.  Unfortunately, everything usually isn’t finished before going bad so I have to throw it out, money in the trash.

Save Money Buying a Home Meat Slicer

When I bought my meat slicer it not only was convenient, it has saved a lot of money in the last year because I can cook my own ham, turkey breast or roast beef at a fraction of the price of buying it at the deli.  I cut it all as thin or thick as I want and I don’t have a bunch of money going in the garbage anymore.

You can buy a boneless whole ham for about $12-$15, cook it the way you like it and slice it up just the way you want it.  A pound of ham is on average $6 a pound at the deli, you have at least a 5 pound ham for the $12-$15.

Freeze half of it or in quarters, even after it’s cooked, take it out and slice it as needed.  You can do the same with beef, poultry and even cheeses, just buy larger and freeze it.  The meats can easily be slow cooked in your crockpot for amazing flavors that are even better than the delis, not to mention much healthier without all of the preservatives.

Don’t just limit yourself with slicing deli meats and cheeses either!  

You can use your meat slicers to cut larger pieces of meat from your butcher.  Buying your meats in bulk can save a lot of money.  Buy larger cuts of beef, pork, anything and cut it to what you want.

You can cut your own veal or chicken cutlets, pork chops, steaks, all at a fraction of the cost that you pay per pound in grocery stores.  The meat slicers definitely  pay for themselves in a very short period of time.

Ease of Cleaning:

The Chef’s choice model is easy to clean but it is not recommended that you put most of the pieces into a dishwasher.  Either the pieces are to small or have metal base or whole, so they can rust if not dried immediately.  However, other reviewers that own this particular model have said that it is fairly easy to disassemble to clean and reassemble to use.

After every cleaning of any meat slicers, you should lubricate it according to your models directions so that your machine continues to glide and run smoothly.  You can find the type of lubricant you need for machines used for food preparation Here.

Overview of Chef’s Choice 615 Premium Electric Food Slicer

The Chef’s choice 615 premium electric food slicer is an easy to use machine.  With all of the reviews and having one myself, I can say that it is great buy for the money.  The versatility and ease of use from securing large roasts to slice to the removable parts for easy cleaning is really good.  You can slice everything from breads to deli meats and cheeses easily.

This using sets very nicely on your counter and the rubber bottoms keep it in place when the unit is on and being used.  This is a pretty quiet unit compared to others that I have used, you can carry on a conversation when you are using this unit.

The one thing to keep in mind with this unit is that you are only going to get a thickness of about a half inch thick.  This is good for most people but if you’re looking for a food slicer that gives you a thicker cut for your breads or other foods then this may not be the right one for you.

Difficult to take apart and clean properly & getting it back together

Overview of The Rival 1101 W Stainless Steel Electric Slicer:

The Rival 1101 W stainless steel electric slicer is an older model meat slicer that doesn’t appear to have the best reviews.  If you are looking for something that is simple to use and to get a great slice on everything, such as meats, cheeses, fruits and breads, etc., you may want  to look at some of the other models.

The fact that this is an older model for rival, there are a lot of reviews from purchasers claiming that it cuts unevenly but that it does have the capability to cut large roasts compared to smaller home meat slicers.

Reviewers also seem disappointed with the way that the model comes apart and back together, it is much harder than many of them expected.
