In-store delis and sandwich shops use meat slicers to turn prepared meats, cheeses and vegetables into party platters and sandwiches. Butchers use commercial grade slicers to cut and trim large pieces of meat into individual serving size packages. Recently, meat slicers have become common in household kitchens.
From paper-thin slices of prosciutto or potatoes for homemade chips to inch-thick cuts of prime rib, meat slicers make preparing meals quick and economical. Home slicer sales have been on the rise as with them, families can save significantly on sliced meats, cheeses and vegetables. Meat slicers allow their owners to buy larger cuts of meat and cut them into steaks or chops instead of buying multiple pre-cut packages from grocery store meat departments.
