Manual Meat Slicer

Look at my new toy! I know there are those among you who have dreamed about owning one of those beautiful big red Berkels, used for slicing prosciutto paper thin. They cost thousands of dollars. Well, this isn't one of those. Actually quite inexpensive. Built by Graef and bought through Manufactum, a company in Germany that sells unbelievably lovely things. I know, it is a fetish of mine to own hand powered tools, but this works nicely. Sticks to the counter well too with little suction cups. See the even slices of salami? It snagged a bit here and there, but I think that's because the salami is uneven and coarse-textured. I don't know how it's cleaned, but I guess I'll figure it out. In the meantime, check out Manufactum; I dare you not to buy something. (This is an unsolicited endorsement. My friends in Germany Richard and Theo told me about it, and they were absolutely right.)
