Machine to make thick slices

First post here!

I need a 'machine' to make thick slices.
I make roasted vegetables and it's a pain slicing and chopping.

I don't want wafer thin slices - but rather thicker, say 0.5cm - 1.5cm (depends on vegetable)

I don't want to use a Mandolin.
I want an electric machine where I can chuck things in and get what I need quickly!

I've seen choppers - not really what I need - things need to be of roughly the same thickness.

Is what I need a food processor with the discs??

I've looked and can't see ones that will make thick enough slices

Any pointers would be great!

Thanks


Omar

Hi, and welcome to Discuss Cooking Sorry, but I don't know of anything that can do what you want. There are adjustable meat slicers, but I don't think they would do a good job on roasted vegetables; they're too soft and would just be crushed. Your chef's knife is your best tool for this job.

Outside of meat slicer I have never really seen any machine that will slice that sick. Of course there might be some commercial machines that i am not aware of.

Slice first with a knife, then roast.

It will be a lot easier to just use a knife, rather than drag out a machine and clean it up afterwards.

I think I have this exact disk. The instructions tell you to slice the vegis once, then stack them and slice the other way. I might give it a try for fun, but I doubt it is worth doing because of the clean up of an entire food processor afterwards.

Oh I soooo agree Taxi. I hate to clean that thing, that's why it almost always stays where it's stored.

Why not a mandolin?
A Boerner V slicer will do the thickness you are looking for, the. You just roast. Easy to clean too...
