Slicing food with knife on a chopping board often results in unevenly thick slices. This manual process of food slicing consumes ample amount of time if you want perfectly broad and thick slices of various food items. Things become tricky, if you have to slice a cheese slab.
Pros & Cons:
Effortless slicing with die cast aluminum housing with a 15 degree forward tilt. Breeze cleaning with removable food tray and slicing blade. Safe and secure smooth operations with food carriage, slicing guard, on/off power switch, and thickness control return feature. Not a con but a safety feature to prevent any accidental injury while handling is to always keep hands away from the blade, as the blade will continue to move for a short time after switching off the device. Do not use appliance for cutting deep frozen food or bones.
As cheese creates a lot of blade-drag, food slicers with a motor efficiency of less than 130 watts are useless for cheese slicing. So, to let you effortlessly slice cheese with evenly broad and thick slices, Nesco has introduced its FS-200 Food Slicer with a motor efficiency of 180 watt and a large multipurpose 7.5 inch hardened stainless steel serrated blade for effortlessly slicing cheese, meat, bread, vegetables, and fruits.

With adjustable thickness control range 9/16 inches, you can select your desired slice thickness between 0 to 12. To experience a trouble free slicing operations, place the food onto food carriage between support plate and slicing guard. Slide food carriage back so food is clear of blade. Press power switch to start the slicer. Keep left hand on the power switch, and hold the slicing guard with the right hand. To start slicing, push food in towards supporting plate while holding the slicing guard and slide food into blade. Slide food carriage back and repeat until the desired amount of food has been sliced.
To prevent any danger of injury, always use food carriage and slicing guard while cutting. For added safety during storage, the device offers a safety feature of returning the thickness control to “p” after use and before cleaning. This will keep the blade edge covered by support plate when the device is not in use. The on/off switch of the device offers you to safely begin and finish the operation before plugging/unplugging the slicer.
