The Severin AS 3915 Electric Slicer stands out with its design and workmanship. The knife has a diameter of 19 cm. The illuminated on/off switch indicates whether the device is in operation. During the process, the inclined cutting surface facilitates the cutting of the products, as they incline directly towards the knife. The feeder slides back and forth very easily. The delivery includes two stainless steel knife blades to separate different products. One drawback, however, is the lack of a collecting container and the fact that the machine does not operate quietly.
The Severin AS 3915 Electric Slicer is completely made of stainless steel. The base plate, the motor housing, and the stop are made of robust metal. Thus its optics make an elegant and the processing an absolute high-quality impression.
With the Severin AS 3915 Electric Slicer, the cutting thickness can be adjusted to allow precise cutting.
The carriage or the cutting surface of this universal slicer runs diagonally to the knife, whereby the product is cut off slightly diagonally. This simplifies cutting and the carriage slides smoothly back and forth.
The rotary switch makes it possible to infinitely adjust the cutting thickness of the universal slicer from 0 mm to 15 mm. So you can decide for yourself how thick or thin the slices of the respective product should be.
In terms of performance, the Severin Electric Slicer is at the very top: The knives do their job with up to 180 watts. However, it can also be found in the upper range in terms of volume.
The on/off switch is located on the right side of the universal slicer. It lights up red when the machine is in operation. This switch does not have to be held constantly to keep the knives in operation.
Four suction cups ensure that the universal slicer does not move so that the unit remains in place during operation.
The sliding feeder cannot be removed because it is firmly attached to the machine. The cutter blade is also permanently installed and its speed cannot be changed.
The Severin Electric Slicer does not come with a container or tray to catch the cut product. Either it is stuck to the device or it falls onto the worktop or the surface on which the device is installed. It is advisable to provide a plate or board for use when slicing.
Wavy edge knife: The knife is equipped with small wavy edges, which makes it perfect for slicing bread. Thin slices can also be cut with the slicer without any problems.
Ham knife: The knife is smooth and without serrations. You can cut ham, cheese, sausage, etc. without breaking or fraying the sliced parts.
With the electric slicer, you can also cut wafer-thin slices from cucumbers. Even with the ham, knife it is only a little more effort than with the normal serrated knife. The results of cutting cheese and salami with the slicer are rather average.
After cutting, the remains of this universal slicer stick in the corners of the product to be cut. But cleaning does not require much effort. However, none of the parts is suitable for the dishwasher. It is recommended to wash the removable parts by hand with water and a light detergent. The basic unit can be wiped with a damp cloth. Please note that the carriage cannot be removed, so that cleaning may take a little longer.
There are two stainless steel knife blades on the unit, which can be easily replaced by turning them.
