hi, what is the white grease like substance behind the blade, do I wash it off before use, or leave it, is it safe?
i think it is grease so the blade can spin properly and not overheating the motor, that is my guess but I am not a manual-reader-type-of-user lol. Too bad I don't have that grease paste to replace the existing one so whenever I wash it I try my best to leave the grease alone
Thanx so much, I was worried about ingesting it :(
How do remove the plastic cog that the blade works against? I have removed the grey casing but cannot get the old one off.
Hi Vanessa, if it is the part I think it is I use a coin. I hope that helps.
No it’s further on, once you remove the blade, you remove the grey casing which in turn exposes the plastic wheel/cog that the slicing blade connects with!
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. So sorry , removing the blade is the farthest to go with this unit.
Kind Regards, Sunbeam
(thick and thin with a 0-23 mm variable slicing dial)
is it possible to cut 0.07mm for shabu shabu asian meat. paper thin?
Thank you for your query. The ES9600 cannot be adjusted to that low.
Can you cut warm loin of pork without the crackle? What is the maximum height and width of the product to be sliced?
I would assume so. Let the meat sit to absorb the juices and slice. As it is rolled you may want to add more string so it doesn't unroll. Remove the string after you have sliced.
Why does it rip my almond bread apart it seems almonds get caught on the bottom
I have no information in regards to this problem as I have never made almond bread.
I assume the almonds are in pieces in the bread and the blade would push the pieces against the softer dough.
Suggest put in freezer until bread has a very firm consistency the cut with minimum forward pressure to allow blade to cut cleanly through the bread and almonds.
I read that almond bread is cut very thinly so it would need to be very firm to prevent tearing.
Suggest Sunbeam should be the best source of resolving all your slicing problems.
Will it cut almond bread?
Can you buy a new blade?
Will it cut almond bread - probably but I have never tried.
Can you buy new blades - not easily.
I ended up throwing mine away and bought a proper slicer.
While the slicer is still new it will cut any bread. As soon as the cog wheels are worn out, it will only ccut soft butter.
Yes, you can buy a new cogwheel and also a new blade. But it is not worth doing because you will have the same problem soon after repair.
Not having eaten Almond bread can't answer that for you but have had no problems cutting from soft to hared breads, i have had no problems at all with any part of the unit and i use it on a regular basis no problem at all with the cog wheel
