We got this as a wedding present in 1994. It finally broke in 2011. We were not careful with it, we put it in the dishwasher, everything. This slicer is way better than eanything I have used. We also used it almost daily. We will be buying another one in a very few moments
I threw it out, used, or attempted to use it twice. the wire starts pulling out, and becomes real slack I took a screwdriver and fixed it once, it pulled right back out. tossed it in the trash, because at that time, fuel was more per gallon than I paid for this thing. surprising Sur La Table would even stock this, I expect better.
I wasn't looking for anything fancy, simply something that would slice cheese. This particular slicer worked fine for its first 6-8 uses (3 months). After each use, we would wash the slicer in the dishwasher. Now I've noticed the exterior stainless looking shell is peeling up. Small shavings end up on my hands and cheese. The screws where the wire is attached is also corroded. Attempting to tighten the wire is also no simple task.
Bottom line, don't waste your money on this slicer
