Got my KWS 6" slicer today

    Tired of my old inexpensive slicer and after making some nice cured meats it was time to buy a decent slicer. After shopping around and determining I didn't want to house a 10" slicer the 6" KWS was a perfect fit.

    So today it arrived. I unpacked it disassembled it and gave it a goods washing. Reassembled and went to work on 1-1/2 bresaola's. All in all it works light years better than my old slicer with a smooth sliding meat tray and cleaning is a 10 minute job.

    I ended up with three (3) 4ounce packs of spicy bresaola and four (4) 6 ounce packs of traditional bresaola.

    6" blade?? Looks like a good slicer. All metal. Meat looks fantastic.

    After reading lots about slicers the size 6", 10", 12" comes from the width of the food tray. The blade on my slicer is just about 7-3/4". This was also another reason for me going with a 6" slicer other than storage space is belly bacon would be about the longest meat I will cut. Since homemade bacon doesn't shrink like store bought I don't need to start with a 12" slice to end up with a 6" slice.

    KWS slicers are made in Italy and are supposed to be of a higher quality than the alternate Chinese versions. FS1.jpg

    This is the last piece of equipment my Bride and I have wanted as we assemble the kitchen Arsenal. That’s a ‘Fully Semi-Automatic Assault’ Slicer, right there! That size and setup looks ideal for what and how we would use one.

    And the meat looks perfect. The spicy would be right up our alley.

    Thanks for the share!!!
