Chef's Choice manufactures the best home meat slicer of 2015, according to Top Ten Reviews. The brand's 609c model wins strong reviews for its functionality, reliability, precision, safety features and ease of cleaning.
The 609c comes equipped with a 7-inch blade that is adequate for home use and even for smaller restaurants. The 609c’s blade is also capable of cutting cheese, vegetables and bread, and its stainless steel construction is designed to prevent rusting. The unit features a high-powered motor for continuous, easy slicing, though reviewers note that the device cannot stand up to constant, daily slicing.
The 609c allows easy removal of many of its parts, including the blade, food carriage, food pusher and food deflector. All of these parts are simple to remove and clean, making the device easier to maintain than many comparable models. The device also contains some notable safety features, including a button that locks the food carriage into position when the machine is not being used. This keeps the blade retracted, which is a useful feature for any home that has small children.
Reviewers also praise the unit’s compact size. At just around 10 pounds and 15 inches long, the 609c packs a great deal of functionality into a small package, making it an excellent choice for home kitchens. Reviewers also note the device’s one-year manufacturer's warranty.
