Our classic cheese slicer is constructed of hefty, chrome-plated, die-cast zinc alloy, and it's dishwasher safe.
7" overall length.
This is a better quality slicer than slicers I've owned (and broken!) in the past. It feels sturdy and has a good weight. It doesn't feel like it's made of plastic with a metal coating. We've used it quite a few times; it works well and seems like it's going to last a while.Review by Katie (on 12/18/13)
It feels sturdy and heavy duty, definitely slices cheese well. It's a bit thick on the lowest setting, but with some skill that's not a problem. The roller needed to be tightened with pliers, hand tightening didn't do it.Review by Stephanie (on 10/15/13)
Nice and solid. When I got mine the roller was lopsided, so don't be worried if it looks the same for you. Just tighten the sides and then it will be perfect.Review by Kim (on 9/25/13)
