Cheaper than anything I can find, might be a cupboard filler though.

Thinnest slice 15mm? Not much good for meat in my sandwich. Is that right?

No that is wrong, 15mm thickest and 15mm smallest in description. We have one of these and you can get paper thin slices.

is this good?

Seems a good price. Moneysaving question is... is it cheaper to buy a chunk of meat and slice it yourself than pre-packaged sliced meat?

Am sure the meat would taste better as it wouldn't have a huge water content compared to the packaged stuff?

the packaged stuff is normally re-formed.

come to that, most of the stuff on the deli counters are re-formed but they hide that in the small print

How long does this take to clean?

Got one last year when reduced down in price and it is definately not a cupboard filler. It is slightly fiddly to take apart and clean, and all the pieces do come off to wash. It is amazing the number of slices that you can get from a small joint of meat. We do not buy ham from deli or pre packed anymore - always cook our own and slice it up to the thickness we like. Only criticism is that hot meat is difficult to slice up. Excellent buy that you will not regret and will definately save you money.

Hmm. After asking I checked the reviews and they say the only bit that comes off is the blade and the rest is a total b****** to clean. I did have one from lidl and that was the same hence the reason I asked.

"Does exactly what it says - great for slicing homemade bread/cakes and left over sunday lunch joints. Contrary to some comments (and not mentioned in the manual) the folding base and adjustment plate are removable and washable. To remove the adjustment plate (which is marked with a dishwasher safe logo so it must be washable!), turn the knob as if making the thinnest cut possible and, with the blade removed, pull the plate on either the left or right away from the body. Reverse the process to put it back. My only quibble is not being able to overide the safety switch to keep the blade constantly turning but I guess the designers know best."

We use this for cutting up Gammon into slices after xmas & freezing them after vacuum packing them.
Nice!
