If you are looking for an entry level, easy to use meat slicer, you can’t go past this unit. It’s simple to use and more importantly clean up at the end of days meat slicing. The adjustable blade thickness makes it ideal for slicing not only meat but other products. One tip if slicing meat for jerky, is to first freeze the meat slightly. This will make it easier to cut and you will get more consistant thicknesses. This unti is ok for small general use, but can be tiresome when slicing alot of meat.
If you are serious about making jerky, or need sliced meat and vegetables for a restaurant, then this unit is ideal. With the ability to slice 150kg/hour, you will be able to increase your jerky production instantly. The units can be purchased with different blade sets so you can slice the meat to your desired thickness. The blade sets are removable for cleaning which is a must have – trust me! I still use a unit that is a pain to clean due to the blades not being removable.
Much like the Healthy Choice unit, the Todo meat slicer is a pretty typical benchtop meat slicer. These types of units probably all come from the same factory and are just rebranded. In saying that, it has all the features you would expect and want from a meat slicer.
