The M665 electric food slicer from Chef's Choice features a rugged and heavy duty (weighs 30lbs) construction to perform in your home or commercial kitchen. The meat slicer is the ideal companion for the outdoor enthusiast that wants to bring bounty from the field to the table. It's made from commercial quality die cast aluminum and features a tilted design to allow for fast and efficient slicing with the metal food pusher. The sharp stainless steel serrated blade comes with a blade cover for reduced friction and easier slicing. The food slicer has a powerful high-torque motor (over 1/4 horsepower) and a reliable gear drive operation for continuous non-stop slicing. The slicer allows you to slice from deli-thin to about 1" thick. Its cantilever design delivers the sliced foods directly to a large serving tray for easy access.
