A great slicer - with one limitation
This is a wonderful slicer; easy to use and to store. No multiple parts to deal with - just a simple slicer and a hand guard. The ceramic blade is sharp, but unlike a metal blade, will not cut the skin upon contact. The blade is two-sided allowing back-and-forth slicing.
My only complaint is that there is no way to control the thickness of slices. I bought this slicer for my daughter-in-law because I so loved the one I bought for myself about a year ago. This is obviously a different model because mine has a dial on the back that controls the thickness of the slices.
Still, you can't go wrong with Kyocera; I'm a big fan of their ceramic blade kitchen devices.
I recommend this product.
