On The Prowl For Another Meat Slicer

A couple of weeks ago while slicing another batch of corned beef, my Rival Meat Slicer died! Main gear missing teeth.

So the process of replacement begins. This project is an E-bay bit. that is because the old school Rival is the only slicer made for home use that is not mostly plastic. My Mom & Dad bought a Rival slicer and still have it ... they are a good product. I bought mine used maybe 10 years ago, on E-bay and it has served me very well!

Now I'm back on the prowl for another. I'll keep you posted on my process & if you are aware of someone who has a rival and is willing to part with it ... PLEASE drop me a note!

We finally broke down and bought a cheap plastic one, and it really does a decent job considering it only cost $35 dollars.

It does help to get the disk back in the proper place after cleaning, so that it runs straight. DOH!!

Hi - I just came across this post/blog regarding your meat slicer. I just managed to come up with a slicer just like yours but can't find a manual anywhere. Could you tell me if the blade comes of to clean? I havent been abled to figure out how to remove it. Thank you for your time.

This meat cutter machine (máy thái thịt ) can directly cut or slice meat, characterized in reliable performance,
high efficiency and non-pollution to food. During the cutting process, the frozen meat can be
directly cut, which can avoid secondary pollution and energy consumption, and can maximally
reserve the nutrient content and flavor of food. The blade made of superior alloy steel is quite
sharp, thus the cutting is more reliable.
