Electric Food Slicer
BEFORE OPERATING YOUR SLICER
BEGIN SLICING
Before operating your slicer for the first time, disassemble and
clean, (see page 5).
1. Plug the cord into a 120 Volt AC outlet.
1. Be sure slicer is unplugged. Place assembled slicer on a
flat, dry surface. Position slicer in front of you so that
the Thickness Knob is on your left and the Pusher is on
your right.
2. Check that the slicer is turned Off. Do not plug it in yet.
3. Allow slicer to run for thirty seconds to warm up.
4. Grasp the Pusher with right hand, keeping your thumb
protected behind the Pusher. Apply even pressure for
best slicing results.
3. Be sure the blade is tightly in place. (See Removing the
Cutting Blade on page 5). The Platform should glide
smoothly on its track. When using the slicer for the first
time, the Platform may need a few drops of vegetable
oil.
5. Move the Pusher towards the Blade. Move back and
forth steadily and easily with even pressure. Repeat for
additional slices.
4. Remove the Pusher. Cut food to proper size before
placing on the Platform. Place food on Platform.
Position the Pusher on the back edge of the Platform.
Place your hand so your fingers align with the grooves
inside the pusher. Do not allow any food to hang over
the Platform.
7. The slicer can operate continuously for 10 minutes,
after which it should be turned off and allowed to cool.
Note: Meats and cheeses slice better when chilled.
5. Position the Thickness Knob for desired slice thickness.
Turn the knob counter clockwise for thicker slices,
clockwise for thinner slices.

2. Press On/Off Switch to start the slicer.
CAUTION!!!
Blade is very sharp and can cause severe lacerations!
6. When finished slicing, press the On/Off Switch to
stop the Blade from turning. Unplug from outlet.
8. Always align the thickness guide with the cutting blade
after use.

HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS GUIDE
n
n
n
n
n
n
n
Do not slice anything that contains bones, large seeds or
other extremely hard materials.
Remove all wrapping material from food before slicing.
6
n
Do not slice without using both the Platform and the
Pusher.
Remove thick rind on food before slicing.
To slice meats or fish wafer thin, chill before slicing.
Use the slicer to quickly cut cucumbers, potatoes,
zucchini, and onions.
To maintain the freshness of your sliced foods for up to
five times as long as traditional food storage methods, it
is recommended that you use one of Deni’s vacuum
sealers or vacuum packaging systems. To order, or for
more information, call 1-800-DENI-VAC.
Hot Roasts—Beef, Pork, Lamb, Turkey, Ham
n When slicing boneless roasts, remove from oven and
allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before slicing. The meat
will retain its natural juices and slice without crumbling.
n
n
Cut the roast, if necessary, to fit on the platform.
Place foil underneath the platform table to catch juices
and crumbs for easy cleanup.
For rolled or tied roast, remove strings one at a time as
the strings become closer to the blade (make sure the
motor is off).
Cheese
n Slice while well chilled.
n
n
n
Before serving, allow cheese to reach room temperature.
This will enhance the natural flavor.
Some process cheese may stick to blade. When
necessary, turn motor off and wipe blade with a damp
cloth. This moisture will help prevent the blade from
sticking.
Some hard cheeses like cheddar will not slice properly.
Bulk Bacon
n Chill thoroughly before slicing. Some types of smoked
bacon should have the rind removed.
®
Cold Cuts, Sandwiches
n Cold cuts of meat will keep longer and will retain flavor
longer if sliced when needed.
n
n
n
For best results, chill first.
Remove any plastic or hard casing before slicing.
Use a constant, gentle pressure for uniform slices.
Fruits and Vegetables
n
n
n
n
n
Slice potatoes for thick or thin chips.
Slice cabbage for slaw.
Slice carrots lengthwise in very thin strips. Soak in ice
water to curl.
Slice zucchini, eggplant and squash.
Breads, Cakes and Cookies
n For dainty sandwiches, slice bread about
n
n
n
1 /4 ”
thick.
Fresh bread should be cooled before slicing.
Slice all types of party breads, pound cakes and fruit
cakes.
Especially effective with coarse textured breads and
cakes.
Fruit and Cheese Tray
n Select large, firm fruit. Thinly slice cored apples (peel
on), oranges, cored pears and pineapple. Arrange in
the center of a platter with thinly sliced swiss, American
or any cheese you prefer around the outside. (Fruit is
used instead of crackers.)
Peeled and cored pineapple can be easily sliced.
