Love mine. I paid like 50-60 when I first moved out on my own. Kinda chintzy but still works like a charm, the blade stays sharp, and it comes all the way apart easy enough. Compared to the ones I used when I worked in a super market deli, you can't fine tune the slice thickness as much (Like my ham THIN! beef THICK!.. again, chintzy plastic). But the fact that it "field strips" faster than an AR15 , and that most of it is dishwasher safe makes cleaning them not nearly as much as a hassle as the big commercial ones I used to use. Cleaning those was an exercise in suck.
