I'm considering purchasing an electric food (bread) slicer. I welcome any opinions and/or preferences that might be helpful making a selection.

I have no dogs in this fight, but I thought you might find a recent post I made of interest to you...

ABsolutely love my ChefsChoice 610. I chose it because it slices thicker pieces than 1 1/2 inches and paperfine meats with the extra blade. Super easy to clean as well.

I am thinking of purchasing the chef's choice  slicer, but had a few questions.  Would it be practical for someone who slices 50 loaves a week?  Is it a pain reassembling the slices into a loaf to package the bread?  Is there a big difference between the serrated and smooth blades?

 Are there any other options you know of besides electric knives and the thousand dollar machines?

Thanks for your input

I also have the Chef's Choice slicer, but it sounds like you want something much more efficient. Doing 50 loaves one slice at a time is quite burdensome, and the variety of shapes suitable for slicing on the Chef's Choice is somewhat limited.

I intend to place a single loaf on the platform and slice throug the entire bread.

I've been very happy with my slicer.  It slices a loaf of bread faster than I thought it would..  But in reality, I really don't need to preslice, since it does such a great job so I just slice when I need to... 


 


I simply just dust the crumbs away and put my towel over the slicer till needed later.  I love my slicer.
