Re: a good meat sliceri did an excessive amout of reasearch before i made my final purchase. the ones for $100 are too cheep and look like they will break. you can see them first hand at target, northern tool, academy, bass pro. i looked on line a lot and figured i wanted to spend about 200-250. that really is not an option. you can spend $160 or less or 350 or more.
i decided on the deni 14300 series. they make a 14300,14301, and 14302. they all seem pretty much the same but the one i went with came with the digital scale for the same price as the others. do not get me wrong i did not get the scale, nor could i get customer service to send me one. but that is hind site.
the one i have has one of the largest motors and biggest slicing capabilities (as far as thickness, incase i wanted to slice my own stakes) i think it goes up to 5/6". easy to clean because a lot of it comes apart. i even get the motor a little wet when im cleaning it and it dont seem to bother it. 3 blades.
the quality of this is a lot nicer then the $100 ones, they actually use metal in its production.
you have the internet look around a lot and find what you can within your budget. i paid 160 for mine but i just saw it for 130 when i was looking to see what i got.
