During the “After Christmas Sales” I bought a meat/cheese slicer. I use it to slice meat, cheese and my homemade bread.
I originally bought it because I did not like paying $7.00 a pound for shaved roast beef. I buy a rump roast when it is on sale, roast it until the internal temperature is 180 degrees, and then shave it. I am getting a pound of roast beef for half of what the store charges. Another benefit is I can season the roast to my liking and I do not add preservatives.
I love using it on my homemade wheat bread. I bake the bread in my Bread maker in the summer to save on cooling costs. This appliance will pay for itself this year.
