It was a really good day at the Kam Swap Meet today. There were a lot of new sellers out, and we spent a lot of time in just the first two rows alone. By the third and fourth rows though, the heat prematurely wore us out, and we began dragging from there. I'll post more photos later, but for now I just wanna tell you quickly about what happened with this food slicer.
I've been watching YouTube videos lately trying to learn more about dehydrating food. I've been envious of the people who have their own personal food slicers and are able to effortlessly slice their food thin.
So, when I saw this guy inspecting this food slicer today, I stopped dead in my tracks. I looked at the seller and mouthed, "How much?" He signaled with his fingers . . . 1 finger and then 5 fingers.
And so I waited. The potential buyer asked, "How about $8?" The seller said, "NO. $15." The buyer continued to inspect the slicer. Then he said, "How about $10?" The seller said, "No, it took me a long time just to clean it. $15." The buyer continued looking at it. . . and then guess what happened?
He took his hands off it and then went away!! I quickly whipped out my $15 and handed it to the seller. Here it is in the back of my car.
It works really good . . . the slices come out even and thin. But there is one major problem . . . it is a pain in the butt to clean. The only thing that is removable is the blade. So even though I used soapy water and a sponge on it, and I then wiped it down with a wet towel over and over, going into all the little nooks and crannies, because I couldn't submerge the thing into water for a good soak, I never felt like it was really clean. I went online to check it out, and sure enough it seems to be a common problem with these slicers.
The meat that I so nicely sliced is marinating in barbeque sauce right now and I asked Wendell to hibachi it tomorrow. Once more, after cutting the meat I cleaned the slicer as best as I could . . . at least I can wash the blade in the sink . . . but I dunno . . . somehow I have a feeling that I'm not gonna use it again.
