Hello Guys. This thread is two fold. First off as you may remember I bought a used 10" meat slicer. Well I haven't done a thing with it yet. I have since found out why I bought it cheap. It is REALLY greasy and needs a clean BUT I found out it is the European version. It is hard to get repaired and hard to get spares for. SO! My dilemma is do I spend the time cleaning and oiling only to find it works for a month and then breaks down? My decision is no. So I will be putting this slicer on E-Bay as is for what I paid for it. £35 + shipping. It does run. My advice to you guys is if you see a slicer for £35 in Newark, I would leave it unless you want to gamble. IF one of you want to gamble, I will ship it to you for that price. I MEAN gamble!! I will NOT stand by this item. I will say if you plug it in it will run. THAT IS IT! If you buy it ; it is all yours! I will not put it on E-Bay for a week or so.
Now the second part. I want to buy a new meat slicer. I am thinking a 12" blade as I HOPE it would be better for bacon. I don't want the Andrew James plastic home version but I also don't need a butcher shop quality pro meat slicer. I have more plans for it than just bacon. I THINK I want the self sharpening blade. All stainless steel.
SO! Have I gotten something wrong? Am I missing a trick? Something I should be looking for? Something I should avoid? Brands? Model numbers? Where to buy?
Thanks for the advice guys.
