The Veg-O-Matic Has Arrived

My Germanic stainless steel blade, high strength, plastic slicer and dicer has arrived. Don't pay for shipping at Amazon, it got here first thing in the morning on the second business day after I ordered it.

It's pretty cool. I whipped out some thin and thick tomato slices right away. It has this other piece that makes thin and thick rectangles (juliennes). I haven't quite figured out how to make cubes - I think you have to slice them horizontally before you put them into the safety guard thingy and then slice them again.

Pos, from what I can see so far, it will slice meat as long as it is less than about four inches wide.

I'm not sure if it's worth what I paid for it; but, it does work and so far it's pretty slick.

I agree with you on not paying extra for faster shipping at Amazon. I order a lot of books from them and the books are always in my mailbox within 2 or 3 days of placing my order.

Have fun with your veg-o-matic!

Dave -- the key question for me is how thin of a slice can you make? When I have a ham or a roast and I make sandwiches with the leftovers, I can only cut so thin with a knife. I want deli thin slices.

Does it do deli thin?

Probably not as thin as you want - the thinnest is an eighth of an inch.
