|Product Type: Meat Slicer||Country of Manufacture: China|
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."
Happy with my selection

When I read the many reviews on meat slicers I determined that I would pay more for a heavy duty model. This one works very well and is easy to use and clean.

excellent construction, blade and safety. Slices prosciutto and schwarzwaelder schinken paper thin with ease. there is a safety gap between the pusher and the base which leaves 14 to 13 of end piece which I hoped would be smaller but that may be par for the course.
SHARP is more than a five letter word

This is my first Food Slicer. I've wanted one for years and I may have went overboard on this one, but so far, no disappointments. Days after use I'm still amazed just how sharp the blade is. I first used the slicer for boneless pork chops. Yes I know that the instructions recommend that meats like this be partially frozen but gave them a try anyway. The machine still did a wonderful job. Before I bought the slicer I read on the reviews about the clean-up, well eventhough I had misplaced my instructions, I found it easy to take apart the machine, clean it up and then put it back together. Like many users I dislike the food tray, it's too small.
It work well
