Food prep slicers?

Does anyone offer panini out there that slices their own meats? I'm using whole turkey and whole loaf cheeses and would like to get a medium volume slicer for my food prep. As it is now I'm hand sliccing everything but volume is getting to the point where it's now too time consuming. I was curious if anybody out there uses a particular slicer and either loves it or has one they think I should avoid?

Prior to this I have never had any experience in a restaurant or worked with food so I've never been around a slicer.

I would hate to buy the wrong slicer that injures my employees or one that breaks down and then have to buy a second one.

Any and all help is much appreciated. Really is.

slicers

Mikefly,

Thanks for the reply and your feedback. I have heard really good things about Hobart. The next question is with your history is there a contact that you can refer? And if I cant quite find a Hobart in my price range, whom would you say is 'second' best?

Thank you sir.
