Electric manual gravity meat slicers, allow the user to pass the meat carriage from side to side. The thickness of the slice can be accurately set using the index. These so called gravity slicers have an angled meat carriage, designed to push the meat against the blade.
This type of slicer is much faster than cutting meat by hand and produces a much more accurate slice thickness.
With an electric meat slicer every slice is cut to the same thickness. This not only reduces waste, it also ensures you can calculate exactly how many slices you get out of a given cut of meat.
An electric manual gravity meat slicer is therefore one of the most time efficient and effective ways to cut meat. The built in sharpener also ensures that time is saved on keeping the blade perfectly sharp.
