The Oster 2803 electric knife with carving fork and storage case provides durable accessories with stainless steel blades, an innovative design and a serrated blade for easy slicing.
Oster is a name synonymous with quality cooking appliances, and the electric knife is one of its lower-cost offerings. It offers standard features, definitive looks and a classic design. The motor is quiet and the blades are sharp, which allows this slicer to cut through meat, vegetables, fruits, and even craft items quickly and efficiently.
The Oster electric carving knife comes in its own carrying case with a matching carving fork. The white finish and gripped ergonomic handle give it a neutral look. The carving knife has a durable handle, which keeps your hands out of the way of the blades while you hold the meat in place during slicing. The housing, however, is rounded, which can make it swivel and slide on the counter when it is not being used.
The blades on this electric knife are removable and made from stainless steel for durability. This construction guards against bending, and the blades can also be placed in the dishwasher without corroding. One special feature is the sharp cutting tip. This pointed end is designed to carve hard-to-reach areas on a piece of meat, such as corners and around the bone.
The Oster electric knife has a matching case with the classic Oster logo embedded on the top. Inside the case, there are molded places for each part to fit, so when the knife is put away, the knife won't slip and slide around, risking damage. The small case also fits conveniently into a kitchen drawer or cabinet.
Like most Oster products, the electric knife is dependable and has an aesthetic appeal. The sleek design makes it easy to hold, and the matching carving fork makes the set complete. This is a lower-end knife for your basic carving needs.
