I was able to win some bonus prize points through work, accumulating enough to purchase a figure 8 diamond necklace for my young and beautiful bride (still on our honeymoon, looking forward to our first 40th anniversary in April!) plus a li'l ol' slicer for me - a 7½" Nesco slicer. Dadgum thing is cuter than a whole box of brown-spotted puppies! Well... as far as slicers go, that is! Used it tonight to slice up the rest of some buckboard bacon and made Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches for dinner. It sounds like a jet engine winding up to get the motor going and doesn't spin that fast, but it sliced evenly and consistently with great thickness control. It will leave some 'hangin' debris on the bottom but that is common; just flip over the piece every few slices to saw that off or deal with it when done; some of the full-sized Hobarts and Globes do the same thing too. It'll work just fine for bacon, dried beef,cold cuts and block cheese. It won't do a whole beef round by any means, but for its size it works well! Like I said, it's cute! (after being around full size slicers for 30 years!) On Amazon, it's around $85, here's a link: . You can find it at many retailers too.
