Works great

"I replaced an old slicer with this one. It is a lot larger but so much easier to clean. It slices great, I do have to grab each piece and place it in a pile or it gets stuck, but I had to do that with my old one too. After all it is not a professional slicer so I dont expect it to work like one.
I put a piece of parchment or foil on the counter to catch whatever I am slicing, makes for little mess to clean up. I love it for slicing bread, I like mine sliced thin and can not buy it that way.
It does say you can not slice for more than 10minutes which I thought was a very short time, but I've done a whole roast in less time than that.

Worked for five minutes

Pros: looks like a pro model.
Cons: stopped working quickly.
"As usual with Costco, the slicer arrived quickly. It's a substantial and good looking machine, and cut fine slices well. However, it stopped slicing after less than five minutes. The motor was running, but the blade wouldn't turn. Took off the blade and saw that the gear drive wasn't turning either. Also noticed that the gears were plastic, not metal, which doesn't seem good for long term wear. Back it goes!"

Returned after first try

Pros: price
Cons: cleaning, blade
"No space to catch sliced meat. The blade is easy to clean but has the grease on the opposite side for the gears. Meat gets everywhere and you can't disassemble all the parts."

"Perfect to cut cold cuts with. Easy to clean there was a lot of grease on the other side of the blade though would've been nice if the gears were sealedin some way. But for the price I think it's a great unit."
