ShortOrder SoundOff – Slicers – December 2013

December 2013
If you are running a deli or sandwich shop, you will find that a slicer can save you money as well as time. Slicers allow you to produce uniform slices of meat and cheese, and much faster than if you were using just a knife. Before making this purchase, it is important to determine what and how often you will be slicing, how much time you have to dedicate to slicing, and what motor design will best fit your needs.
Your first consideration should be duty-type. Light/standard duty is ideal for slicing deli meats, but is not recommended for slicing cheese. Medium duty can be used to slice cheese for about an hour per day, but is not recommended for frozen products. Heavy duty slicers can be used to cut any amount of any type of meat, cheese, or frozen products.
The next consideration is whether you will most benefit from a manual or automatic slicer. A manual slicer requires someone to manually slide the feeder tray back and forth over the blade. An automatic slicer will automatically slide back and forth, without any supervision needed. Another consideration should be the motor design. Slicer motors are either belt-driven or gear-driven. Gear-driven slicers are more expensive, but will be more reliable and require less maintenance. The belts that drive belt-driven slicers don’t require much maintenance, but they do require regular cleaning. For high volume situations, the gear driven slicer is the best option.

Globe Slicers: Slicing and, er, Slicing

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

All right, we’ll own up to it: our thing for Globe slicers is real, and it’s legitimate.  Nothing against Hobart slicers, which we find to be similarly wonderful machines, but there’s just something about Globe slicers that drives us to a bloggable frenzy.  Maybe it’s their peerless machining.  Perhaps its their sleek, efficient design.  It could also be their virtually intuitive ease of use.  You know what?  It’s probably a combination of all of that and more.  Regardless, we’re huge fans of Globe slicers, and we think any commercial kitchen operator would be a similarly all-in convert if they ever got their hands on one.  You’ll never look at a block of cheese or deli meat in the same way after a Globe slicer makes short work of it, and that’s the truth.

Globe Slicers: Industry Leaders

It’s no secret that Globe slicers are magnificent pieces of restaurant equipment.  We say it’s no secret because Globe slicers are the recipients of significant amounts of accolades.  Consider the fact that, in-house, we have an editing team in charge of rating all of the products we carry.  Many of the products Globe manufactures, such as Globe slicers, meat grinders, and mixers are rated particularly highly.  Some are even designated with an Editor’s Choice rating, which means we consider them to be above and beyond our typically excellent range of offerings.

(A note about our “typically excellent range of offerings”: We only carry products that we find to be top-notch, which is why our star rating begins at 3 stars and goes up to 5.  It’s not that we’re trying to pull a fast one, believe us!  We really just only stock products we like, and Globe slicers happen to be products we like very, very much.)

If Globe slicers or Hobart slicers aren’t what you’re looking for, remember, we stock a whole bevy of excellent pieces of restaurant equipment bound to help you get the job done, whatever job that may be!
