I was a bit concerned about having enough travel for some of the meats I use. I think the Wally-World MC might be out then. Unfortunately, my nearest stores are a Walmart 25 miles away that doesn't stock slicers (or a lot of other appliances), and Sears, Sam's, Khols, etc. 125 miles away, so actually looking at different models isn't happening unless I happen to be up there.

I thought I'd be done debating this by now. I'm really starting to lean toward a Rival 1110, just because I pretty much know what to expect...plus it's such a simple and solid design that if anything breaks or dies I can likely fix it.

The Kalorik looks decent too, but I think it's nearly the same dimensions as the MC at WalMart. It's hard to tell from the pics, especially since they're all at angles. I haven't managed to find a straight pic of any of them. If the blade diameter is listed it's easy to overlay a grid and figure out the dimensions...a ruler on the screen will do it too, but that's not "nerdy" enough.

And so the search resumes...

You can pay and order on-line and pick up at your Walmart Store.

I do site-to-store frequently. I decided to not get that particular model because it's capacity to handle wide slabs of meat, like my bacon, is lacking.

I wound up getting the Rival 1100. I had to get a blade for it, but it was good to go otherwise. It's well built, simple, easy to fix. Too bad they don't build that one anymore. It's big enough to handle those bacon slabs, medium size roasts and hams, etc. I'm already working near its size limit, but it's unlikely I'll be needing to cut anything bigger any time soon. I have a friend who is a butcher and another with a restaurant so if I need a bigger slicer I have access to one.

I just picked up one of these off of ebay for $270 shipped. I got it late last week and have only sliced some salami. It easily sliced it thin enough you could see through it. It is very well built and seems like a steal for the price. Will be doing some jerky this weekend.

If one can afford it a Toledo or a Hobart, sometimes you can find one at auction or the school system put them up on a bid.

It is 20" x 18" +/- with the carriage on. 20" x 11" with the carriage off.

How heavy is it? Manageable to move when it is not in use?
