    Chef's Choice makes several inexpensive slicers. They are good quality slicers for under $300.

    I agree with Joe watch Craigslist and watch for a good deal on a commercial unit they take up more room but a decent one should last you a lifetime and slice whatever you may want to do

    The ones from Cabelas are made by Chef's Choice behind the scenes

    I would also get the 11" blade if you can afford it.

    Craigslist is a good place to get one, but make sure the blade does not have any nicks in it.  A new blade can cost as much as your used slicer!

    I found my globe c-10 on Craigslist for 140 bucks. Just look under the buisness section and search for slicer. I would look at least once a day. I would also look for a slicer that has the "knife" instead of a solid blade that turns against the meat. The knife type are the ones that have a stationary section in the middle of the knife wheel to minimize contact between the knife and the meat, thus reducing drag.

    Here's mine..

    Good luck
