Our electric knife of many years wore out and we had put off buying one for some time. I finally got around to looking for a new one. Ended up buying the Hamilton Beach Electrid Knife Model 74275. It was on sale and the price was great. the knife came in a case that has proven quite useful. I didn't think that we would use the case but you know it is handy to have the blades, the knife, the cord all in one place. The knife is sharp, does a good job slicing and makes cutting that ham or turkey a breeze. I really like the way that this knife allows you to cut thiner slices for when you are cutting meat for sandwiches. The knife comes apart easily and makes clean up a breeze. Then its back in its storage case ready for the next time. Great knife at any price.
