as long as I know a høvel is a slicer for cheese, exclusively. However a skjæremaskin, which was my translation, is a tool for slicing any kind of food.Therefore I don't understand why the test assessed my answer as incorrect.
høvel can mean lots of things, not just a cheese slicer. But they all tools and not machines. For example: høvel-> plane; ostehøvel-> cheese slicer; barberhøvel->razor
