Chef's Choice International Gourmet VariTilt Electric Food Slicer
Great, but could be better
Russ Cooper from Kirkfield, ON– Verified Buyer
All in all a great product, really cuts well for what I want to cut (bread with hard crust, meats I've smoked). I even used it to quickly make french fries.
Exactly as advertised...
The BIg Guy from Tehachapi, CA
The uses for this slicer are only hampered by your lack of imagination. It does everything. Good quality - good price - all in all, exactly as advertised and what we wanted in a slicer, short of a deli or restaurant one. Would highly recommend.
Always enthralled by knife sharpening, Friel included in his list the invention of a truly effective electric knife sharpener that would work on a wide variety of knives, particularly, fine quality gourmet knives. He rescued a 20-year-old set of Gerber knives from a closet. They were a present from his wife June, and to his great frustration, he had never been able to put a satisfactory edge on them.
With fierce determination and a personal deadline of three years to show himself adequate progress on the project, Friel set to work in a basement laboratory and then sought the assistance of other professionals. "They were the nucleus of the EdgeCraft team," recalls Friel. He created thirteen prototypes before he came up with one that satisfied him. Soon after its introduction, the Chef's Choice Diamond Hone Sharpener earned the acclaim of food experts and chefs worldwide, including Pierre Franey, Jacques Pépin and the late Craig Claiborne.
Friel compares the day he left DuPont to follow his second career to the day he walked away from Johns Hopkins University after earning a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering."Unlike the day I left Johns Hopkins, when I left DuPont I could proceed with the knowledge and confidence gained from some 40 years of hands-on experience," Friel recalls. "I saw a need and I had the confidence that I could deliver."
