Food and meat slicers are fast becoming essential implements to have in the kitchen. Designed to deliver convenience and safety in slicing of such foods as cooked meats for purposes of making sandwiches or vegetable for salads, it is essential that your slicer be easy to operate and safe at the same time. The following reviews compare the ten most highly recommended meat and food slicers suitable for both home and restaurant kitchens.

Moreover the blade is sharp and powerful enough to slice through everything from cheeses to semi-frozen meats. The only drawback is that the Continental PS77711 does not ship with a spare replacement blade.
