That happens on mine when it gets to the very end of the meat I am slicing. Its usually to a point where you might get one or 2 slices at the very end and they end up stuck together by a small piece. Mine is definitely not the best. I can't get razor thin slices but they are thin enough. I don't think they are all the same, at least from the reviews I have read. I did allot of research on slicers ranging from $50 to $500. I picked mine based on the best reviews at the time. As mentioned above, cleaning mine is a breeze and that is not the case with all slicers in the $100 range. I don't know how the cabelas slicer works but the blade on mine come off with a flip of a lever and goes back on just as easily. Ease of cleaning is very important to me. I hate clean up. They can also very in wattage. Most are 200w in the $100 range. To get 250w, you will probably need to spend twice as much if not more. You want as much wattage as you can afford. I think if mine had a higher wattage, the blade would turn faster and I could get thinner slices. Like I said, I would love to have a big one but you can't just stick a big one in a cabinet to get it out of the way. I have an 80 pound 1hp grinder that is a big production to get out, use, clean, and put away. I have a big sausage stuffer that is the same way. I don't want to have to deal with that with the slicer. Mine fits in a cabinet.
