The Chef's Choice 610 opens the doorway to making restaurant quality dishes & sandwiches in the comfort of your own home. Believe it or not, many people don't realize that you can get a meat slicer that you can use at home - it's an exciting and enjoyable purchase to say the very least. But what makes this such a valuable purchase? Why is the 610 one of the best sellers for home cooks? Let's go over a few of the perks!
There's no doubt that you'll end up loving your 610 slicer; many people claim they wish they had purchased one years ago. If you're into saving money, think of this: you would spend on average around three times more buying pre-sliced meat when compared to slicing it yourself. Keeping that in mind, another fact is synergistic alongside the savings: having your own slicer gives you complete control over both the thickness and the quality of the cut you are preparing. The difference between gourmet restaurants and the typical bar & grill is typically one thing: the freshness and quality of the dish's ingredients. Fresh ingredients are far more tasty and delicious, and your guests or customers will undoubtedly wonder the secret to your delicious meals.
The Chef’s Choice M610 has a powerful 100 watt, cool running, high torque motor and a reliable, smooth gear drive operation help you slice with ease and confidence. Other professional features include precision thickness control from deli-thin to 3/4" thick, easy-clean cantilever design, tilted, large capacity food carriage and a button to lock the food carriage when not in use. The blade, food carriage, food pusher, food deflector, and thickness plate all remove easily for cleaning. A serving tray is included!
The Chef's Choice 610 Food Slicer has a very sturdy build - it's composed of both aluminum and stainless steel. Not only can it be a center piece to a kitchen because of its sleek design, but can also be a great conversation starter as well. As a home cook, this is the perfect entry-level model to get you started with slicing your own meat. Don't forget, though - it can also slice veggies, fruits, breads, and more! One review states that the user really enjoyed making homemade chips with his 610. Being a fun, enjoyable, and durable product, the chef's choice 610 will expand your cooking abilities and increase the quality and taste of your meals. It's also a "Universal" gift to give any time of the year - remember to order the M610 non-serrated blade for ultra-thin slices with your new slicer!
We know you'll be excited, because we are too - lining up consumers with products that are highly beneficial and enjoyable to them is what we do best. Don't hesitate on ordering - the popularity of this product means it may move to backorder at any time. Grab it while you can!
Note: if you are a cooking enthusiast or a restaurant owner we highly recommend models 645 and above – think of the 610 as a personal use slicer, while the 645 and above are designed for commercial use in terms of capacity and durability.

I purchased this slicer after my old one (17 years old and $50 new) died. I'm not sure if this is a really nice slicer or my old one was just a piece of junk. I opened it up and put it to work today with 10 pounds of semi-frozen venison. I set it to slice thin for jerky and let it go. Even though the inside of the roasts were still frozen, the slicer worked great. The uniformity of the thickness of the slices was very good. My old slicer couldn't keep a uniform thickness at all. The motor never got hot. Clean-up was very nice. I had it taken apart and cleaned in 6 minutes. I make a lot of jerky throughout the year and am looking forward to using this slicer.

When I was a young man, I helped pay my college tuition by working in a deli. The one thing I loved was working with the meat slicer. Anyone who’s ever used one of these machines knows how easy it is to slice meats, cheeses and even vegetables from paper thin to as thick as you'd like. Well this machine is definitely the home version. It's easy to slice just about anything. It also disassembles easily for cleanup. Once you set the thickness, every slice comes out perfect. I had an Oster slicer for the last twenty years and this machine outperforms it in every respect. Please note; when tightening the blade the pop out tab can come off if you tighten it too much. This is no problem as it will pop right back on. I assume it was made this way to prevent stripping the screw by over tightening.

While I may not be a professional cook (far from it, actually) this item has been a wonderful addition to my array of cooking devices. This electric food slicer is able to slice just about anything into just about any size. Also, if one ever needs to, say, slice a zucchini extremely thin, on a relatively frequent basis, then this is the way to go. Using the 610 Premium Electric Food Slicer is a snap. All you do is assemble, place the food on the tray, and slide it over the spinning blade. Also, clean-up is just as easy. You disassemble, wash lightly but thoroughly, dry, then reassemble. Also, unless you do something stupid, it is near impossible to cut yourself using this device. If you aren't going to use it often, then I would recommend not buying an electric slicer, but just cutting the food with a knife instead. However, if you are going to use it on a regular basis, then there is no slicer I would recommend more from a financial and quality standpoint.

As a deli worker myself, I have always wanted one that could slice whatever I want, without problems. So far I have been able to thinly slice deli meats, cheeses, vegetables (no tear onions and perfect tomato slices), and raw beef for making the perfect beef jerky. This deli slicer simply is the best slicer for the money!

This product works real well. The slicing gets a little crooked after a few slices but if you rotate what you are cutting every few slices it stays pretty even. The thing comes apart real easy to be cleaned and reassembly is also easy. Love the fact that it is made of mostly aluminum and not so much plastic. Motor is powerful enough to cut cheese without bogging down the motor or stopping it. This slicer was a very good value for the good quality of construction of the machine.
