Q:are the gears plastic and what is the blade made fromAsked on 8/26/2009 by the chicken man from west winfield, ny
A:The gearing is plastic as well as the retaining bolt. The gears are well lubricated in white lithium grease. The blade is stainless steel. Gander Mountain has replecement blades in store stock. The blade is not flat, it's designed with a cup. As I sliced a top sirloin roast the unit had plenty of power and torque, there was no bogging down whatsoever. The unit also has an on switch which can double with a pulsating action. The unit has variable drive, so the blade speed can be adjusted. I like this better than the Chef's Choice model I have where the on/off is controlled by a pressure panel you engage using your thumb located behind the slide tray. Being right-handed I found myself applying too much pressure into the blade on the the other model. This may have contributed to the problems I experienced with the blade on that unit. This was not so however with the Gander Mountain unit. I was able to slice with smooth uniform strokes. For home food prep I highly recommend this model.Answered on 11/28/2009 by Butch from Lewiston, NY
