I have that same slicer....works great...used it on loins for Canadian bacon, as well as sirloin tip roasts....motor doesn't bog down at all ...easy to take apart and clean...like Rodger said...just wish the tray was a little larger...
The Cooks slicer blade is 7 3/8 from edge to edge. The owner manual states that it is 120V, 60hz, 100W. Doesn't give details about the motor size. The price they give you on the website is cheaper than what I paid, but I would think that the shipping may offset the total cost. I've only used it once and that was last night to slice some ham. It will slice from paper thin to 1 inch thick. I didn't notice any bogging down but the manual did state that the motor may slow down when slicing frozen foods. They recommend allowing the food to thaw a bit before slicing.
GF, that J.C. Penney slicer by Cooks for $39 is a 120V, 60 Hz, 100 watt slicer. Itâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s ok for lighter work, once you have a feel for it. Not the fastest slicer I have ever used.
Here is a funny story: In early October 2006 I ordered one of these slicers on internet (free shipping), finally a few weeks later, I called to find out where my slicer was, tracked it and was told it was delivered to my door a week before. I was home that day, and it was never delivered. Eventually Penney sent me another. January 3, my neighbors son stopped over with a package addressed to me. My neighbor had left for his winter home in FL. in late September! The outside box looked sorta melted, but the inner box and slicer (wrapped in plastic) was flawless. I called the delivery service responsible and explained the situation and cost of item, condition of packaging, etc. They said forget about it. :roll: So I got a free backup!
The way to gauge your horsepower is that 746 watts is one horsepower.A 100 watt slicer is roughly 1/8 H.P.As some of you remember I played the slicer game and after two attempts I finally gave in and put out the bucks for a good slicer.Ill never regret it Im sure.
