For this review, we compared the product the Hotkey professional kebab cutter to the Tangkula 12” blade commercial meat slicer. In terms of cost, these two products fall within the same price range. However, there were some other differences with these two products.
One significant difference was the item weight. The Hotkey professional kebab cutter was relative light, weighing in at 3.6 lbs. while the Tangkula 12” blade weighed 48 lbs.
As a result, the former slicer is more portable and convenient as opposed to its heavier, less portable counterpart. This is why the Tangkula 12” slicer is best suited for commercial/business use where there is lots of cutting. At home however, the Hotkey professional slicer will do the trick.
Both slicers have the same voltage output however, the Tangkula 12” slicer produces more power at 150W. In terms of blade diameter and thickness, the Tangkula slicer blade is 300mm/12” and 0-0.59” respectively. Blades on the Hotkey kebab slicer are 100mm and 1.4mm respectively.
Overall, both these slicers are high quality and will cut through even the toughest meat. In addition, they can also cut through vegetables and cheese as well.
Both appliances are easy to clean and have safety features installed to ensure the only thing you cut is the meat. We were impressed with how both professional slicers performed.
In summary, the Hotkey 110V/60Hz professional electric kebab slicer performed like a charm. It’s portable, convenient and fast, especially for mass food cutting like in a business.
Hotkey did not compromise on safety when using this slicer and that’s a good thing. We highly recommend this slicer for all your household or enterprise needs.
