The Weston Slicer, a manual powered hand-powered slicer, will cut perfectly straight strips of meat. It is ideal for making jerky. This benchtop unit is perfect for those who find hand-chopping tedious and want to improve their jerky making skills. Simply cut the meat into small pieces, then place them in the top of your slicer. Just a few turns of the handle, and you have perfect slices of meat that are ready for marinating.
This slicer is made of stainless steel and will last for a long time. The blades can be easily removed for cleaning. This is something you should consider as other slicers can be difficult to clean. You can swap the blades for another set, which will allow for you to cut your meat for different purposes, such as making a beef stew or curry.
Although it is a significant improvement over using a knife in general, it is not as fast and efficient as an electric slicer.
