Meat slicer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Antique meat slicer.

A meat slicer, also called a slicing machine, deli slicer or simply a slicer, is a tool used in butcher shops and delicatessens to slice meats, sausages, cheeses and other deli products. As compared to a simple knife, using a meat slicer requires less effort, as well as keeps the texture of food more intact.[1] Generally, slicers can be adjusted easily to cut slices of variable thickness. Older models of meat slicer may be operated by crank, while newer ones generally use an electric motor.[2] While the slicer is traditionally a commercial apparatus, domestic use versions are also marketed.[3] [4]
