I will call her... Lurlissa!
Meet Lurlissa. She is the newest addition to my household (I have a thing for naming appliances, here is her sister Lurlene). I have been desiring a meat slicer for some time now, but I have not desired paying the 4 or 5 hundy for a commercial one. Most of the more inexpensive slicers I have perused seemed very cheaply built and probably fairly useless. I had almost lost hope until recently, when the EdgeCraft 610 was recommended to me. This particular slicer goes for 99.99$ on Amazon and it appeared to have quite a few good reviews. I threw caution to the wind and decided to order one.
I have only just opened up my prize, no meat tests as of yet. Superficially, the thing seems fairly well constructed. It is mostly metal (i.e. no cheapy plastic) and kind of looks like a mini version of a professional grade slicer. I have high hopes for the thing, I will let you know how it goes. I am going to christen Lurlissa with some of my homemade circle bacon from a couple weeks ago (I froze some). Hopefully all goes well.
