    I'm in the market for a lightweight (under 45lb), portable slicer that will slice cheeses and steaks thinly. Can anyone recommend one?

    I've noticed a lot are not good for slicing cheese.

    You need at least a 12" slicer blade and at least 1/2 hp motor if you want to slice plain jane 4" square or larger blocks of cheese. Sorry, but it is what it is

    Thats what I figured, thanks! Most likely going to get the Globe G12. Its under 50lb and has a 1/2hp motor. 

    Do places rent/lease deli slicers?
