looking for electric food slicer

  • c

Does anyone have a recommendation for an electric slicer? We cured our own ham which turned out well but really needs to be sliced very thinly. I can't get thin enough slices with a knife and everything I've read says I need an electric unit, something like the slicers delis use. The range of slicers available is huge, prices range from about $40 to the many hundreds. I'd appreciate some guidance.

  1. I have a Krups Electric Slicer, which I love. It's compact, easy to use, folds away and is easy to clean. I've had it for several years. My model is white.

    Here is a link to compare some of the brands and models available.

    Good Luck and Happy Slicing!

      I have a Krups too and I'm very happy with it.

      Keep in mind that there's a trade off for it's reasonable price and compact size. It's best for occasional use and it's not up there with the heavy deli style units. That works fine for me. I use it for ham, corned beef, brisket, and roast beef and it works very well.
