Just what we needed
We used it to slice pork bellies (bacon) that we cured and it worked great for our home use. I have used professional slicers at an old part time job and this slicer was very similar to what I was used to using. You will have pieces of product when you get to the end but that's to be expected. If it doesn't slice cleanly, just readjust the position of the product your slicing so it's centered and away from the edge of the food support. You will have to watch the amount of time using the slicer because it does have an auto shut down after an hour of use. I would recommend this slicer, its well worth spending the extra money on it.
