This product is falsely advertised as stainless steel and dishwasher safe. The roller, which is that part that makes contact with food, is aluminum. One trip through the dishwasher and it is already beginning to oxidize. This product should be pulled from the market. I will be returning this item.

Does the job as advertised and feels very sturdy. Its weight is significant and that makes cutting smoother. The slice thickness adjustment is a little fidgety but seems to lock in place quite well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Potentially great; actually average Jan. 6 2011
By Alistair Milne - Published on

The Swissmar cheese slicer looks and feels like a quality product. It is pleasing to look at and has a nice weight in the hand. Unfortunately the main selling point, the adjustability is the weak point. The first slicer Amazon sent was broken; the wire was loose and the right hand adjusting would not tighten. I sent it back. The second one seemed fine, the wire was taught and the adjustment knobs worked. Unfortunately after a few uses the left hand knob became very hard to tighten and required a pair of pliers to tighten it enough to stop it slipping. I would suggest this is not an item to buy online. Better that you are able to test the item before purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good enough not to return Dec 28 2010
By A. Cole - Published on

This cheese slicer is constructed well, heavy duty, but wire is way too thick and not stretched tight enough. The wire flexes too much during slicing. I will keep looking to find a cheese slicer that is as good as the old one I had, a simple (non-adjustable) slicer with a thin, taught wire that lasted for years.

1.0 out of 5 stars heavy duty, but awkward Dec 24 2010
By Scott Johnson - Published on

Yes, it's a battleship. You could pound nails with this thing. But the position of the wire relative to the roller is weird. I didn't think I would mind it, but as it turns out I just can't get used to it. Instead of being "out at the tip" of the device, the wire is almost below the roller. Picture this: if you set the thing down flat on the counter, the handle, the roller, and the wire are all actually touching the surface of the counter. It's awkward to use, at least for me.

And the knobs that lock the adjustable roller in place are lame. You can't tighten them enough to get them to stay in place. Maybe with pliers?

That would make a good Amazon combo... "frequently bought together: this fine cheese slicer and these lovely slip-joint pliers!"

I'd have been happier with another cheapo, non-adjustable cheese slicer that had the wire out at the end where it belongs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gone Wireless July 13 2011

This cheese slicer worked OK for about 16 months, although it never sliced much cheese. The wire broke last week, and it seems Amazon does not sell replacement wires for this model.

When the wire broke, my guest, who was using the slicer to cut some cheddar cheese, said, "I guess this is only for cream cheese."

[Update July 13, 2011: I just found replacement wires on the Swissmar site, which are offered by Amazon for another Swissmar product. Here is what Swissmar said: "Wire replacement for # D1024 Dalla Piazza branded Cheese Slicer. Also fits Swissmar branded Adjustable Wire Cheese Slicer #S3009. Just undo screws on the sides of the slicer, replace wire, tighten screws. SKU: D0024."

Amazon sells these wires for $2.00 each. Search this Amazon site for "Dalla Piazza Replacement Wire for Adjustable Cheese Slicer."

I am still sticking with my one-star rating because these wires should last much longer, if not for a lifetime.]
