My wife had a coupon and other stuff for Khols so I persuaded her to use them to get me a meat slicer as an early Christmas gift. I got the Chef's Choice 609 Premium Electric Food Slicer. I was wondering if I should get anything else to maintain it? I see on Amazon the recommend getting G & F 1607L Cut Resistant 100-Percent Kevlar Gloves and McGlaughlin Oil PETROL-GEL 4 Oz. Lubricant Tube. Would anyone with a meat slicer be able to recommend getting or not getting these?
Also any suggestions on using it? I have never used a meat slicer before but I have been doing enough Bottom and Sirloin roasts this summer I am tired of not having evenly sliced lunch meat. I am smoking a bottom round roast this weekend. I was hoping to have the slicer by early next week to slice it with. Is cold the best way to slice things like that?
