It stands out because of its sluggish slide, but scores with its collecting container and the additional smooth knife.

The Graef S11001 Electric Slicer makes it clear that a smooth-running, well-functioning slide is very important. With this all-purpose cutter, the slide is difficult to operate, especially during the first cutting operations, and causes trouble during cutting. The collection tray for the cut material is practical and the comparatively low noise level is a plus. However, the quality of the cut is only mediocre with this all-purpose slicer.
The housing is made of aluminum and is available in the colours white and black. The Graef - S11001 Electric Slicer makes a stable impression and stands securely on the lower plate, which can also be used to store the cuttings.
The cutting speed is slower than with comparable machines. Despite its "Made in Germany" title, it does not score well in this respect. The maximum power is 170 watts, which provides enough power. In addition, the device is comparatively quiet when in operation.
The serrated knife has a diameter of 170 mm. It can be used to cut bread with a hard crust, cold cuts, cheese, fruit, and vegetables.
The on/off switch is located on the left side of the machine. The machine can be switched on and off simply by pressing the button. A rotary switch on the right side regulates the cutting thickness from 0 mm to 20 mm. The corresponding numerical labeling indicates the area in which the cutting thickness is located.
The cutting surface of the device runs straight to the cutting blade. This eliminates the slight inclination that causes the product to be cut to incline towards the knife.
As with the other all-knife cutters, this is also not suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher. It is advisable to clean the basic unit with a damp cloth. The removable parts are cleaned under running water and with detergent.
The slide of the universal cutter cannot be pushed back and forth as easily as with the other machines. This considerably reduces the cutting speed, as more force and precision is required to move the carriage. The holder for residues ensures that the product to be cut can be safely guided.
Slicing salami and cheese is no problem as even thin slices are cut cleanly. With meat sausages, the cut is good, but with this machine, too, the meat sausage slides around and a straight cut is not possible.
The device also cuts bell pepper well and the cut product falls directly onto the collecting tray placed there.
When cutting cucumbers, it is noticeable that the cucumber gets caught between the knife and the appliance. This slows down the cutting speed..
As with the cucumber, bread is sliced: the bread jams between the knife and the appliance and the slicing quality is not optimal because the knife is sometimes completely wedged into the bread.
A collecting tray is supplied with the device in which the cuttings are collected. This can be easily placed underneath the machine. Thus no food falls on the working surface.
The feeder can be locked in front of the knife with a child safety lock. This is a big plus, especially for families with smaller children.
The operating instructions of the universal cutter provide detailed information on operation, components, disposal, and warranty. It also contains safety instructions. The manufacturer recommends that the machine be operated for a maximum of 5 minutes.
