The BLACK+DECKER slicing knife is an electric knife, the only one in this list of the best slicing knives. It is powered by a 100W motor. The blades are serrated (which is not really a feature of slicing knives but this is electric so it works) and are 9 inches in length. They are made of stainless steel and are detachable. The knife has an ergonomic handle and is multi-purpose – you can use it to slice meats, cheese, roasts, breads, etc. It can even be used for crafts, like cutting through foam, etc.
The knife is very easy to use since it is electric. You don’t have to use a lot of elbow grease to get any slicing done with this beauty. The Comfort Grip handle gives you a very ‘comfortable’ grip and you are provided with added control during slicing. The Safety Lock button ensures that the knife doesn’t turn on by itself while it’s plugged in, thereby preventing any nasty accidents. There is also a knife stand to support the knife when not in use. The Blade Release button releases the blades very easily.
It is an extremely sharp knife. However, the motor can get quite warm after 2 minutes of use so be sure to never use it continuously for more than 2-3 minutes straight. Let it cool down for a few seconds before turning it on again.
Cleaning & Maintenance
This knife is very easy to clean. All you have to do is release the blades with the help of the Blade Release button and put them in the top rack of the dishwasher. However, even though BLACK+DECKER says it is completely dishwasher-safe, it’s not too much trouble to hand-wash a couple of blades.
According to the manufacturer, the blades won’t ever need sharpening.
