Electric slicer for speck or prosciutto
I have been looking at the Chef's Choice 632. I want something that can make paper thin slices of prosciutto and especially speck. This is just for home use. Does anyone know if it will work for me? Or maybe I could get away with something cheaper? Always a plus.
I dabbled with the thought of a used commercial unit, but I don't really have space for it and would not want it out all the time.
I have no idea either, but I would love to have the same thing because I love proscuitto and the idea of cutting my own sounds really great. I have always had my eye on the one Mario Battali had on his show--it's red and manually operated and very expensive. I have seen posts on this board about those slicers. If I remember correctly they are American made and you can get used ones for a more reasonable price, so you might do a search on that (although I don't remember what it's called, sorry). Although since you said you don't want it out all the time, it might be a waste to that big red slicer away in a cabinet.
