    Does the Ultimate Mandoline cut meat? Easy or difficult? Thanks.

    Huh, never tried that.
    It might work OK on a hunk of soft deli ham or turkey.
    I don't think it would do raw beef very well.

    Why not just try it and let us all know?

    The straight blade may but with our holder and guide I would think it would be very difficult. It isn't designed for meat.

    Oh, good question. Inquiring minds want to know.

    You would have to be able to fit it in the holder. I don't think it would work so well.

    At our last meeting, my director shared that she uses hers to slice cooked roast beef. She said it works well. I haven't tried it yet though.

    Hadn't thought about the holder. One of my guests a long time ago said she used the US&G for roast beef sandwiches and it was great. Not sure how well it would work.

    Since I don't do big chunks of meat very often (just at holidays), I can't test it. Thanks.

    The only meat I have tried to cut was pepperoni, DID NOT WORK!!!!!!!! The pepperoni was so slick it just slipped over it.

    We use our vario slicer for jerky and we cut it partially frozen.
    If you cut it small enough to fit in that ridiculous food holder or cheat like I do keep the carriage on but not the food holder I think it would work (again for either deli meat or partially frozen)
