Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Nice Home Slicer for the Money
So far we're pleased with this slicer. Note this PS77711 version has the black end-caps and the non-serrated blade. I have noticed some recent-production PS77711 slicers now com with a serrated blade instead. Those have the gray end-pieces from what I can tell. I can't speak of longevity. But we have sliced ham, cheese, and italian bread so far with good results. There's a fair amount of flex in the metal back plate. That flex makes it difficult to achieve consistently transparent-thin slices. Regardless, it's a great little machine for the money. I deducted one star because out machine initially transferred black plastic particles onto the first cheese block we sliced. I localized the problem to a small, black plastic spacer that was rubbing the back of the blade. I used an exacto knife to shave the space so it no longer touched the spinning blade. After that we had no more "black plastic lint" on our cheese.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby58 Very poor instructional Material
For the money it works ok. However, There were virtually no instructions! On how to use it, clean it or reassemble it after cleaning. It is near impossible to remove the blade assembly and no tool to help unscrew the nut that holds on to the blade.

Of the three home-sized slicers I have owned, this is the best. It slices faster and easier than most. Although is is not the easiest to clean of the three, it comes very close. This is a very nice slicer for the occasional user.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easton Nice product!
Only used it once. But seems to be very sturdy and sliced roast beef nice and thin. Only complaint is cleaning is not easy - removing the blade is very difficult. They should have provided a special tool for removal since the inserts are somewhat odd. I was able to look up removal of the blade on utube and I couldn't believe it - but someone actually posted a great video showing how to remove it with a coin.
Other than that - nice product for the money!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by venny Good slicer for the price
Gets the job done although the slicer does slide around on the counter. It takes some effort to keep it still. While slicing, the sizing dial moves so if you are trying to get the thinnest cut, you have to keep adjusting it back to 0. I've used it to slice beef and chicken breasts for kabobs and it worked to my satisfaction. Much better than trying to do it by hand. Deli meats or cheese may be easier, I haven't tried those yet. Clean up is pretty simple and straight forward.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hershey Very good slicer worth the money!
Bought this onsale and it was worth every penny so far. I still have to try it on a smoked brisket but I believe it will work great. I would highly recommend this to everyone as it is the best one I have used.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Berni21 This product is so-so.
I wanted another food slicer because the one that I had was a hassel. It had a safety button that you had to hold to slice the meat. This one is very hard to clean. I like my old slicer better and it was a lot cheaper. I am sorry that I bought this meat slicer.
