I'm looking at getting a slicer. I've never had one before but I'm really excited about making my own lunch meat, bacon etc. Is there anything in particular I should be looking for or anything I should stay away from?

Thanks,

Gordon

I agree; have 3 slicers, one of them being a commercial slicer. But also depends on how much use it will receive. I notice this refurbished model comes with both serrated and non-serrated blades, that is a good value -

A couple of thoughts...

Just keep in mind the blade size and the tray size which correlates to how big of a piece of meat that can be sliced.  Many of the small slicers will have trouble slicing a large bacon because it simply will not fit on the food tray.  You probably won't find a slicer that is economically priced with a blade larger than 9" or so.

There are typically not as many options for slicers as there will be for meat grinders or sausage stuffers, but here are a few available options: Click Here

My only other suggestion is that if you buy used or refurbished, make sure you either get a sharp blade or see about getting it sharpened.  A sharp blade makes everything so much easier.
