Default Meat Slicer

Does anybodyhave any suggestions as to a electric meat slicer? I have been researching them and so far none of the seem to be outstanding unless you spend several hundred dollars. Needless to say my budget is probably no more than $125. Am I dreaming to gett a decent one at this price?

What do you want to slice with it? How thick or thin do you want to slice it?

I've also been looking into slicers. Unless you are lloking into light duty (lunch meat, small roasts), you won't get much. the old adage "you get what you pay for" holds true for meat slicers.

I've gotten used to things around 1/4" thick, but if there were something out there that would be awesome. Lately I've been watching Restaurant auctions hoping....

I've seen a meat slicer over here in Nebraska for only $20, and it was a really good one!

Check cabelas.com, it has a few from lowbuck to the fancy restaraunt grade. They look pretty solid, too. jpw has one that looks pretty nice as well. Maybe he'll chime in.

Check out ebay for your area. Look for a Hobart. If you pay less than $750 for a used unit you are doing well.

No offense, but $125 is a good knife. An economy slicer is $400. A good slicer is $1,000.

$1000.00 is overkill for most home users.....the one I have does just fine for what I use it for...that said, if I were a caterer and the like, then fine...spend more on something better. 125.00 for a knife? I have 30.00 knives that have good steel, sharpen well and I would put them up against more expensive ones. High price does not always mean quality.

Thanks for the input. What I will be slicing is BBB, brisket, lunch meat, turkey breast etc. Obviously ease of cleaning would be a big plus. It would be home use. I have purchased some small appliaces (deep fryer and the like) from HSN and QVC and have been pleased but for some reason this was something I wanted to look at in person if possible.

Good observation Rick. The cleanup part can suck with some of them. I've got an old, and I mean old, Rival that you can remove the motor from and wash the rest in the sink, or dishwasher. I hunted evilbay for months looking for one, then my brother came over one night and saw what I was looking for. He gave me one he had and didn't use. I use it a lot.
