A food slicer is an important part of food preparation. Not only will a good Euro Kitchen Slicer slice meats and cheeses, it will potatoes, cucumbers and other items just as quickly, leaving you more time to actually do the thing you love…the cooking. Having a kitchen slicer saves you tons of time, but you do need to remember that these slicers are not toys, the blades are extremely sharp and the slicer can be dangerous if not used properly. Below are some tips on how to use your slicer the right and safe way.
The first thing you want to do is familiarize yourself with the Euro Kitchen Slicer, so that there are no surprises when you get started. Make sure that the blade cover is attached and that the hand guard is as well. You should never use a slicer without the hand guard, if you want to keep your fingers.
Make sure that the slicer is secured and firmly in place with the rubber feet firmly on the countertop; this is what keeps the Euro Kitchen Slicer from slipping while you are working.
You need to slide the moving piece back and forth on the slicer to make sure that it glides smoothly, before you get started. If it moves in a choppy motion, then you need to oil it before you get started. Us WD40, not cooking oil, as this type of oil will eventually clog up the machine.
Now you are ready to cut with your new Euro Kitchen Slicer. Place your meat on the slicing tray, making sure that the meat is small enough that the cutting guard can be placed on the back of the meat. If you are cutting a long piece of meat, such as salami, you will need to cut it down to size before attempting to slice it. Having the guard across the meat is very important.
You need to be extra careful once you start slicing that your fingers are out of the way, that is what the hand guard is for. Having a kitchen slicer can be a real help, if you use it the right way.
