  2. Apply downward pressure onto the slicer, ensuring it is pressed firmly to the bench to activate the suction cup feet.
  3. Pull the sliding food guide towards you, as far as it will slide. Place the food to be sliced on the sliding food guide with  thesafety food holder in place, so that it restsagainst t he width panel. See Figure 3. Do not rest food against the blade. Ensure that the safety food holder holds the food firmly in place.

    Note: If the length of the food to be sliced is longer than the sliding guide, connect the extension tray to the sliding food guide, using the 2 hole cutouts on the sliding guide to align and connect the extension tray. See Figure 4.
  4. Remove the food collection tray from underneath the unit and place it on the left hand side of the food  slicer to collect
    the slices. See Figure 5.
