Is this worth it ????

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I found this for said in a ad for a used restaurant equipment supply house that I deal with...meat slicer.jpgwith the ad stating

This is a 12 inch meat/cheese slicer. This is a nice unit and operates off 120 volts. I do not have a sharpener for the blade but sharpened it with a hand held stone so it can be sharpened. The slicer operates smooth and has no problems. - $250.00. What's your thoughts ????  I have, if I remember correctly a Open Country 7" or 71/4" , that I have been using for about 2 years, but it seems to get hot after a few minutes of using it, which makes me concerned on just how long it will last me. I was thinking about going to look at it, but you know what that usually means with me at least.... it's in the bag, if I leave the house for it......He is pretty frim on the price, so price may not be a negating option....

don't know the brand but it looks worth the money

250 sounds like a good deal for a 12".

Yea, try to get a model number and brand then do a search.  Only way to tell.  All I see is metal and that may be more valuable them plastic but who knows?

It's got that big blade that only spins on the outside.

Is it suppose to have a blade sharpener? If so you might be able to get one thru them or the manufacturer. Looks like a nice one though.

I agree with smokeamotive.  You will want to get the sharpener.  It's really dangerous to sharpen any other way... cue my friend who sliced part of his thumb off WITH a protective glove.

Hard to say with just a pic. Go read POPS comment on a similar question I had about slicers. It should help.

I bought an off brand slicer last year. Mine was getting hot too. Check underneath the slicer for a plastic cover plate. If it is there it will cover the whole bottom not just the gears. I removed mine and it took care of the getting hot problem.
