Meat Slicer

Cut Your Slicing Job to Size with the Right Meat Slicer

A meat slicer is a handy tool to have around the kitchen, whether yours is a professional kitchen or just a home kitchen. A slicer can make the job of preparing dinner for any number of people easier and more convenient.

When you are talking about professional kitchens, you will want to consider purchasing a commercial meat slicer. A Hobart meat slicer or a Berkel meat slicer will usually do the job if you own a restaurant, catering business, butcher shop or any business where you need something heavy duty and able to handle massive amounts of work with little maintenance. Easy clean up is another thing you will want to keep in mind when purchasing a meat slicer for a professional job. Look for one with a carriage system that can be completely removed to make the cleaning and sanitizing job easier. Be sure that the meat slicer you choose has the safety features that you need. Many of these professional models are quite heavy as well as heavy duty. They can be mounted to a countertop and used repeatedly with little wear showing at the end of the day. A knife sharpener that you can use without taking the machine apart is a handy feature to keep the blade at its best and make the slicer more efficient and many of the top of the line models include a mounted sharpening device right on them. Make sure you remember to purchase lubricant to extend the life of the slicer.

For home use, any electric meat slicer might do the job, depending on what type of chef you are, how much room you have and how much money your budget will allow you to spend on it. Waring makes some great low cost meat slicers that will fit the needs of most home kitchens. Rival makes a folding model that is convenient when there is little space. Cuisinart, KegWorks and Edgecraft are other good name brands to consider for a meat slicer for the home.

The right meat slicer is a very handy kitchen aid and can make the difficult and time-consuming job of slicing considerably easier. If you are looking for a tough professional model for your business, Hobart or Berkel has a number of great choices. If you are looking for something smaller, there are a lot of inexpensive, versatile, but sturdy meat slicers that can help you cut any job down to size!
