After using a meat slicer, you should wash, rinse and sanitize it. Sanitize your appliance with meat slicer sanitizing spray. Use a spray bottle to coat the machine thoroughly and allow it to air dry.
It would be helpful if you also sharpened the blade after every few uses. A dull blade will not only make slicing more difficult, but it can also be dangerous.
To sharpen the blade, use a honing rod or grinding stone. First, find the angle you need to sharpen the blade at.
For most meat slicers, this is around 20 degrees. Next, run the honing rod or sharpening stone along the length of the blade using even strokes.
Remember to always slice with a clean and sharpened blade for safety’s sake!
