I used to have an electric deli slicer (with the motorized rotary cutter) like they have in the supermarkets, though not so fancy for home use. But not any more, and now I do not have the counter space or budget to justify getting another one. Also cleaning given infrequent use does not make a lot of sense.
Where I usually have a problem is thin slicing hard cheeses (like a block of cheddar cheese) with a knife. Because of the force required to slice the cheese, the slice usually ends up too thick or only a partial slice.
I have tried using generic band type cheese slicers that are fine for soft cheese but would seem to break for hard cheeses.
So I would like to know what kind of utensil I could use. Ideally I would like to keep it in the realm of a manual-operation utensil that is easy to clean and store.
After doing some more searching, I came across these two that seem like possibilities:
The 330 has replaceable wire which seems like a good feature. I would appreciate any comment regarding whether these might be suitable.
