How I Made My Decision to Buy the Model 1042 Rival Fold-Up Electric Food Slicer:
I often make home-made breads, salads, vegetable trays, fruit, cold cuts and cheese trays as well as home-canned bread and butter pickles and other vegetables. Slicing all these foods takes a lot of time and effort when it is done by hand and the end result is not always as neat or uniformly sliced as it is when done with an electric slicer.

Price and Where to Purchase the Model 1042 Rival Fold-Up Electric Food Slicer:

My Assessment and Experience with the Model 1042 Rival Fold-Up Electric Food Slicer:
I have had my white Model 1042 Rival Fold-Up Electric Food Slicer for about four years. I have used it extensively for slicing vegetables when freezing, canning and preserving foods. I use it to make attractive fruit, meat and cheese trays and vegetable trays for family gatherings. I have used it to slice raw, chilled boneless pork tenderloin into chops with great success. Cooked boneless meats that have been refrigerated slice well any thickness you like.
The slicer is easy to take apart for cleaning and there is never a problem with rust on the stainless steel blade. It folds up easily for storage in limited space. I am very pleased with the performance of the product and would recommend it for home use for deli-style slicing.
