The vast majority of people who have reviewed the Chef’s Choice 615 Electric Food Slicer are very happy with its performance. There are some negative reviews; most of which complain about the machine being a little noisier than expected, or the blade has jammed with some users. Apparently, some units have had issues with breaking after only three or four uses. One of the most valid complaints was that the Chef’s Choice 615 was not sold with the non-serrated blade, which should be used for slicing meat extra thin, but had to be purchased as an extra add on. Another valid complaint was that the blade needed to lubricate after a few uses, which can be a dangerous process with a sharp, new blade. However, complaints were not very common among users and harsh negatives were well outweighed by all of the other positive reviews.

Online Customer Reviews
“I finally settled on the Chef’s Choice Model 615, mainly based on the larger motor and the quality of the Chef’s Choice brand overall.” – Charles Stembridge
“Easy to use, and very thin slicing!” – Roger Farson
Over 90 percent of the existing reviews were extremely positive. Those who praised the Chef’s Choice 615 Electric Food Slicer did not report any of the problems cited in the negative reviews, and even had some rebuttals for the users who wrote negatively about the slicer. One commenter mentioned that the thickness gauge seemed to move a little when he had it set to extremely thin, but that this could be counteracted by simply holding the gauge in place, and that he loved everything else about his new slicer. Also, some reviewers mentioned that the meat was consistently thin if they took the time to rotate the meat every few slices, and while annoying, created a significant improvement. Almost every user agreed that this slicer took practice, but worked like a charm once you learned the nuances of the machine. To the noise complaints, once user said that it did make noise but was not a noisy as their electric knife.
