Ritter fortis1 Food Slicer incl. meat knife/slicer

The test winner * among the food slicers.

From the Pro-Idee Special Shop Cuisine

The test winner * among the food slicers.

High durability, made in Germany. From ritter.

*House & Garden magazine put 7 food slicers to the test (05/2015). The fortis1 from ritter was the clear winner and only food slicer with the rating ”very good” (1,4). It also costs less than £ 80.
Everything you would expect from a good slicer.
Stabile, solid metal body. Infinitely adjustable slice thickness to 20mm (0.8"). For intermittent and continuous operation. 18cm (7.1") cutting length, which is even large enough for large joints of meat. Nevertheless, this compact all-rounder takes up no more space than a sheet of A4.
17cm diameter stainless steel blade with serrated edge – for tender cuts.
Does not fray or tear. A special electrolytic polishing process makes the surface of the blade even smoother and the cutting edge is much more even than similar blades. It effortlessly cuts hard cheese and fresh bread into uniform pieces/slices.
Economical. Maintenance-free. VDE/GS tested.
The 65 W eco-engine guarantees a brief peak power of 150 W. This way the slicer even maintains its high speed with heavy cutting jobs. With cable storage and plastic tray. 130cm (4.3 ft) connector for 230 V. Size 19 x 21.5 x 33.5cm (7.5" x 8.5" x 13.2") (W x H x D), weight 2.9kg (6.4 lbs). Free of charge: The Pro-Idee 36 month long-term guarantee.

Included at Pro-Idee: Smooth electro-polished meat knife/slicer worth £ 34.95.
Perfect to cut wafer thin meat slices.

Enthusiastic conclusion of the Home & Garden test:

”Compact, graceful, but with more than enough power, even for cutting hard bread. The ritter fortis1 is a good all-round cutting machine that is also very suitable for cutting sensitive products. In addition, it is easy to clean and makes little noise. In short: the fortis1 is a one-of-a-kind piece in its class.“
Attachment removable for hygienic cleaning.
