The machine looks at first glance very solid and confidence inspiring. The knife is really sharp (be careful with your fingers while cleaning!), The machine is safe and quiet. Unfortunately, that's about it. The Schneidgutführung is not really stable, the carriage is quite windy in itself, above all, he's too far away from the blade with a large lateral gap and also does not go far enough forward. Combined with the lack constructed (plastic) scraper which means that for example in ham or Tiroler Speck always a corner remains uncut and hanging remains under the knife, which are then pulled behind the knife. If you then disassembled the knife (this cut-resistant gloves are strongly recommended, the knife is really sharp razor), can be found behind half a grocery store, which is more than unappetizing. Since helps a board in front of the food carriage, so that the disks are actually quite cut; then of course you have difficulties with the operation of the switch and actually need three hands. The windy plastic container for material to be cut is not the best, especially in the price of the device. That's why two points deduction.
