I had always wanted a meat slicer and one day my husband surprised me when he walked in the house with this Cuisinart Meat Slicer. It was exactly what I wanted and it hasn't disappointed me in any way since he bought it for me. This meat slicer has a 7.5 inch stainless steel undulated cutting blade that cuts through meat like its cutting through butter. Its perfect for all my meat cutting needs and you can cut just about anything with it from meat to cheeses and even bread. It has a slide control that adjusts from 1/32 inches to a 1/2 inch, so you cut say a football ham into nice thin slices for sandwiches or into thicker slice for dinner. I love it for cutting pork chops in half that I buy at Costco because they're just too thick for us for everyday meals. So I end up getting twice as many meals out of a package of nine chops. You don't have to worry about getting your hand or your fingers chopped off when you use it because it has a polycarbonate food guide that keeps your finger safely out of the way of the fast spinning blade. It has a heavy duty 130-watt motor, so the blade spins vary quickly making any of your cutting jobs go by fast. When you remove the blade to clean it you have to make sure to replace it properly, other wise it will slip out when it’s turned on and as you can imagine that can be very dangerous! The slicer its self also won't slide across the table as you use it because it has non-slip suction feet that guarantee stability while you're operating the slicer. The blade comes with a cover for safety while it’s being stored and the blade pops on and off easily for cleaning. The guide and the food base are also both easily removed for washing as well. If you find the meat base isn't sliding back and forth smoothly, or seem hard to push and pull back, all you have to do is wipe a touch of veggie oil across the bar and that will help it to slide smoothly. We got ours from Canadian Tire and one of the nicer things about buying it from there is that it has a three year exchange warranty that's redeemable at any Canadian Tire store in Canada. I'm not sure if other stores that sell this particular meat slicer have the same warranty or not, so if you do buy it from another store be sure to ask about that before you purchase yours. If you're interested in buying one for yourself, or as a gift, they're selling on line at Canadian Tire for $139.99 plus tax. I'm not sure if my husband paid the same amount in store, but I'm sure if he did it wasn't much more and it may have even been less. I do know if you buy something from Canadian Tire on line, you can have it shipped to the store and pick it up, but I'm not sure if they also have home delivery. That's something you would have to look into before you purchase anything from them on line. I do know that I love having the convenience of being able to slice anything I want and how thick, or thin I may want it with my Cuisinart Meat Slicer. If you've every wanted one I'm sure you'll love this one as well.
