Kitchen Gadgets – The Rival Fold Up Food Slicer

     Back around new Years I did a post called “My Top Ten” in which, amongst other things, I included a list of my favorite kitchen gadgets that I either had or wanted. Thanks to the generosity of my sister I can cross off one of the items on my want list.

     The Rival Fold up food slicer is a great home slicer with lots of features including a safety button and an adjustable thickness plate. I have used it on a variety of Items including cold cuts and cheeses, as well as the Sunday roast. In each case the motor has proved itself strong enough to handle the task without much effort. Additionally cleanup is a snap as all the moveable parts (including the blade) come off for easy cleaning. On the negative side the slicer is small so it works best with smaller pieces of meats and cheeses. For about $40.00 It’s a neat tool to have around the house!

  1. HI Ed! Have a ToastMaster DeliSlicer/5″ blade, almost identical to the Rival except it’s reversed – you push the food (against the blade) from left to right. If you reverse the photos so the blade/food pusher/guard are to the left,

  2. Must admit, Ed, this is not on my list of kitchen must-haves! Space is a big problem for me so the idea that it folds up is a big plus!

  3. Dear Ed – Wow, that’s an amazing gadget especially if you are going to use it regularly. I don’t think I can trust myself with a blade of that size…too much of a klutz 😉

    Ciao, Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

  4. That it folds up tells me it’s easy to store too, always a consideration when thinking about new kitchen tools.

  5. I need another kitchen gadget like I need a hole in the head, but I may not be able to live without this slicer!
