Slicers
November 2012
labeled slicer

The holidays are here. It is during this time of year that most families gather together and share a meal or two. It seems that most of the meals involve some form of meat, be it turkey or ham or something else. Therefore, this month we are highlighting slicers. We carry over 30 slicers in a wide range of styles, including our newest addition: a Nemco vegetable slicer. Some things to look for when purchasing your next slicer are: duty-type, blade size, and motor design.

You need to know what you will be slicing and how often you will be using your slicer to decide if you need light, medium or heavy-duty. You don’t want to overload your slicer. The blades come in a variety of sizes. You need to use a blade that has a diameter equal to the size of the product being sliced. You can choose between manual and automatic slicers based upon how much you are needing to slice. One last thing to consider is if you prefer belt-driven vs. gear-driven. Gear-driven is the way to go for higher volumes of slicing.

Low Price Guarantee and Then Some

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

From our beginnings, ShortOrder.com has distinguished ourselves among the restaurant equipment scene by offering free shipping and a low price guarantee on restaurant equipment. If you’ve been out there looking, you know that’s a rare combination. Companies who offer a low price guarantee usually make up the difference by charging stiff shipping fees, while companies who offer free shipping use it as a way to justify charging a higher price. At Short Order, we feel that you should be able to expect the best deal out there. Period. That’s why we offer a low price guarantee that includes free freight and low prices on restaurant equipment. In fact, we’ll beat (not match) any advertised price by refunding 110% of the price difference.  Just show us the deal, and we’ll beat it every time.

With that low price guarantee comes an uncommonly high level of customer service. Our ratings system and customer buying guide gives our customers an opportunity to make an informed choice of restaurant equipment. We continually evaluate the market and check with our customers to ensure that our inventory is stocked with the equipment you want. We even provide buyers guides, and our “What’s Cooking” blog features individual products, giving extended information about each piece of equipment. Ultimately, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to buy with us. That’s what customer satisfaction is all about.

Whether you are looking for Beverage Air Refrigerators, Globe Slicers or Frymaster Fryers, Short Order gives you the same low price guarantee, while helping you thoroughly compare these products to others of their kind. From dish machines to hot dog cookers to hand sinks, the low price guarantee stays the same. That means you can rest easy knowing you’ve done everything you can to keep your overhead low and your customers satisfied.

Precision and Performance: The Stuff of Childhood Dreams

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

If you visited the grocery store as a child, chances are you’ll remember standing at the deli counter, watching the butcher load a block of yellow cheese or a juicy slab of ham onto the large slicer. You were mesmerized as the perfectly thin slices of meat or cheese fell off of the blade in curls, one after the other. And as the butcher wrapped those beautiful stacks in plastic wrap and then paper, your only concern in that moment was getting home to open the packaging and make that first perfect sandwich…

Now that you are responsible for your own restaurant, perhaps some of those simple joys of childhood now elude you–as you deal with the sweaty realities of running a kitchen. But isn’t it true that we all find joy in something that works so precisely as a great slicer? Globe Slicers will give you just that kind of joy, as you watch pound after pound of meat and cheese sliced neatly into stacks ready for use.

Far from the hardship and danger of slicing by hand, this essential piece of restaurant equipment brings efficiency, speed and accuracy together for an unprecedented level of performance. Globe Slicers complete their carving shores quickly and with the highest precision. In fact, Globe Slicer 4975P, a nine-speed automatic slicer with a maintenance-free drive system, includes a 13” PreciseEdge™ knife and Globe’s exclusive EZ-Glide™ table. This is combined with the durability of an all stainless steel base, food chute, table and knife cover. Not only that, but the 4975P is especially engineered to minimize table movement, enabling it to cut with extraordinary precision.

Whether you’re looking for durability, precision or just to satisfy that happy childhood dream, Globe Slicers are a fantastic choice for restaurant equipment. Happy slicing!

 

Globe Slicers: Always Sharp, Permanently Precise

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Ask an explorer hacking their way through thick and daunting jungle territory; or a carpenter buzzing through lumber, stirring up sawdust—ask them and they’ll tell you: you need the right cutting tool for the job. When it comes to restaurant equipment, Globe Slicers perform the difficult work of slicing through meats, cheese, vegetables and more, with both power and precision.

Theoretically, you might be able to prepare meals in your kitchen with an electric power saw or by chopping away with a long, handheld blade. It may even be possible to exact precise cuts with a small, sharp knife. But without the proper tools, time and energy are sure to be wasted, and you will certainly have one heck of a mess on your hands. At Short Order, you can put away the odd cutting tools and get one of our fabulous Globe Slicers to help you slice like a true professional. For instance, the Globe Slicer 4600P features a ½ HP, 7 amp motor that aids the 13” PreciseEdge™ hardened steel alloy knife for segmenting tough meats and turning them into perfect cuts. This unit even comes with the option for a frozen meat-slicing package, which includes a serrated knife and bronze gear. You will not even have to worry about constantly replacing the knife when it dulls. A top mounted sharpener is permanently mounted. Simply activating a lever initiates the sharpening stones to return the knife quickly to a razor-sharp state.

From compact manual units to medium duty and gear driven slicers, Globe Slicers will replace those archaic cutting tools you had been using–and possibly even that worn out old prehistoric slicer too. Therefore, when you need the proper cutting tools for your establishment, look no further than Short Order for your restaurant equipment needs.  

Globe Slicers: Thou Shalt Skip the Sword, Armor and Chainmail

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Can you imagine what it must have been like long before commercial restaurant equipment and technology, when knights and peasants of the Middle Ages tried to slice meat, vegetables and cheeses? A blacksmith toils for hours, pounding steel, forging, tempering and hardening a blade just enough to cut through the thickest meats. Then some big bruising knight sends off his lackey, saying in strange old English, “Goeth now and fetch thy sword.” Then the knight lumbers over to the spread of uncut food, struggling with pounds of armor and chainmail to make a decent cut, nearly falling over and gouging tables and chairs in the process. Thankfully, now, we need not speak like Shakespeare or become experts in sword making to obtain precious slices of meat, because Globe Slicers do the trick almost effortlessly.

It may have taken several centuries for ages of Fibonacci mathematicians, dreaming philosophers and brutish knights in giant European castles to figure out there was a better way to slice food. It’s a good thing they passed on their knowledge of things to others that allow for the technological advancements we see today in Globe Slicers. If they hadn’t, we might still be clumsily using swords and chainsaws to slice a tomato and it would probably yield a rather messy result. Yet, all that labor that went into composing metal and heat together into a fine sword, isn’t much different than the components and work it takes to make the hard chromed, special alloy hollow ground knife such as the one in the Globe Slicer C10. And there’s no need to go back to the sword smith after dulling the blade. Its top mounted metal knife sharpener keeps making clean slices cut after cut. Since it has a ¼ HP knife motor, you likely won’t pull a muscle as you would after incessant hacking with a sword.

So, when you’re ready to skip the chainmail, sword and protective armor and save yourself a whole lot of time slicing fine cuts in your restaurant, ‘goeth over to Short Order and seek thine Globe Slicers today.’ 

Globe Slicers: Engineered With Ease In Mind

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

In the good old days cutting hunks of meat and slicing cheese took what seemed like an entire day to complete. After it was all finished, you were just glad that you still had all five digits remaining. Older hand-cranked meat slicers certainly made cutting much easier, but left one with hands so stiff a lobster claw would have more dexterity. Today, users of those hand-cranked  slicers would probably wonder if the world is still on its proper axis if they saw how quickly and efficiently Globe Slicers  slice meat, cheese and other ingredients with ease. In fact, owners of these fabulous machines know that somewhere between your their first cup of coffee and the lunchtime rush, the slicing will happen almost like magic, and they’ll be ready to serve all those happy customers without the hard labor and sore hands.

When you are ready to cut through restaurant tasks with razor-sharp effectiveness, then look no further than Globe Slicers from Short Order for your restaurant equipment  needs. In fact, Globe Slicers not only carve thick meats and tender cheeses with quickness, but you will be amazed at how precise every slice is. For example, the Globe Slicer 4975P  is a wonderfully durable nine speed automatic slicer with a maintenance-free drive system. This unit also includes a 13” PreciseEdge™ knife and Globe’s exclusive EZ-Glide™ table. An all stainless steel base, food chute, the table and knife cover, all mean the 4975P will handle the wear and tear of slicing with ease. Its dual gear design also eliminates table movement and ensures the slicer will cut with such precision, you’ll believe a Nobel Prize winning engineer may have designed it.

Whether your restaurant needs powerful high-volume slicing, or simply a durable unit that gets the job done quickly and accurately, Globe Slicers are a terrific choice for high quality commercial restaurant equipment to chop through those time consuming and tedious slicing tasks.

 

 

 

Globe Slicers: Cutting Through Restaurant Tasks with Ease

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Behold the utter insanity of restaurant operations before all of the fancy gadgets and restaurant equipment that cook, clean, brew, chill, freeze and practically mop the floor for you–before the era of ultra-convenience. Can you imagine the time when chefs and employees scrambled like mad trying to coordinate and prepare food and beverages, all the while holding a knife in one hand slicing meat, a mop in the other swabbing the deck, and a free elbow souring and scrubbing pots? Ok, that might picture of the early days might be a stretch; however, it does illustrate how technology plays an important part in helping make the food service industry more efficient.

Yet, despite these advances in machinery, there always seems to be at least one unheralded piece of commercial kitchen equipment that isn’t overly profound and full of electronic wizardry, but simply makes things easier. Globe Slicers are the kind of restaurant equipment that can go quite unappreciated in the kitchen setting. While these slicers will likely never become a Silicon Valley icon or be featured on the cover of Wired Magazine, they take much of the tedious labor out of slicing meats, cheeses and other ingredients.

Globe slicers are impressive in their simplicity and design. For example, the Globe Slicer 3600, cuts through the chore of slicing so that you can efficiently focus on other important details that require your attention. With a durable stainless steel construction, a ½ HP, 7 amp motor and a 13” PreciseEdge hardened steel alloy knife; slicing anything by hand will seem so, well, archaic.

Slicers aren’t the only items Globe manufactures that aid in making restaurant operations more effective. Globe also offers the Globe CC12 Meat Chopper and Food Grinder that can handle 250 pounds of meat per hour, and a selection of high-quality and durable mixers. Globe products may not seem as cool and glamorous as other high-technology restaurant equipment; but without them, it can certainly feel like being in the Dark Ages of culinary arts.

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!

Globe Slicers: Slicing ‘Em Up

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Globe slicers are a top-notch choice when it comes to slicing deli meats to perfection.  Along with Hobart slicers, another line of products we’re particularly fond of, Globe slicers are virtually unmatched, finely tuned pieces of restaurant equipment brilliance.  You want thinly shaved chicken breast piled high on that deli sammie you’re selling?  How about some super-thick buffet-style slices of ham for a banquet your restaurant is catering?  How about some perfectly uniform, hole-y (not holy!) slices of Swiss cheese for patties at your burger joint?  Opt for Globe slicers each time and you’ll be one happy restaurateur!

Globe Slicers: Accolades

Globe slicers are well-respected throughout the restaurant community.  We rate many of their products highly and have even bestowed some Globe products with Editor’s Choice ratings.  Our Editor’s Choice designations are a signal to you, the reader, that we consider them among the best in their class.  Think of it as added reminder from us that we are proud to carry said products.

Of course, we simply wouldn’t carry something that we weren’t proud of.  There’s a reason why we don’t rate anything below three stars on our site: If we didn’t like the product, we wouldn’t carry it!

Globe slicers are also famously efficient and are a breeze to clean.  Globe slicers are built with stainless steel and include antimicrobial protection.  That means a simpler cleaning regimen for you and your slicer, which means you have more time to enjoy the sliced fruits of your labor.

Globe slicers are incredible, but that’s not all they offer.  In addition to slicers like the Globe Slicer 3600P, Globe also manufactures a host of other excellent restaurant equipment, including meat choppers (the aforementioned Editor’s Choice products) and mixers.  They have an all-around product list that suits a wide variety of elements in your kitchen very well.

Ice Machines: High Production Units

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

When shopping for new ice machines for your food service operation, we suggest adding 20% to your current usage estimates and purchasing a unit that produces higher output than you think you need today. Look at your commercial kitchen as the backbone of a growing business that will need dependable restaurant equipment to support it through all stages, present and future. At Short Order we are fully stocked with high-quality ice machines for you, including Manitowoc ice machines, that yield over 300 pounds of ice per 24-hour cycle.

For example, take a look at our Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-0452A, which produces 450 pounds of dice-sized, cube-style ice in 24 hours— that’s nearly a quarter-ton of ice! This model is featured as an Editor’s Choice by Foodservice Equipment Supplies, a major industry media source based in Chicago. The SD-0452A is one of the Manitowoc S-Series ice machines, with innovative technology that set a new standard for sanitation, conservation and serviceability. The hard texture of whole cubes is perfect for mixed drinks, sodas, salad bars and self-serve ice dispensing in your restaurant.

At Short Order, we even offer extremely high production ice machines that can produce over a thousand pounds of ice per cycle! These are ideal for high-volume kitchens in large institutions such as hospitals, university dining halls and retirement homes.  Consider the Scotsman Ice Machine N1322A-21A, producing nugget-style ice at 1,180 pounds in 24 hours.

This Scotsman ice machine’s water and electrical usage costs are lower over a lifetime than other models, due in part to the efficiency of producing (much, much) more with standard resources. Nugget ice features a softer, chewier texture while still providing maximum drink cooling. Because this type of ice will melt and stick together in the dispenser, be sure to purchase an agitator kit in tandem with this model.

Learn more about ice machines by visiting our Buyers Guides and browsing the huge inventory of brand-name ice machines in our online store at Short Order. We cater (no pun intended) to all of your restaurant equipment needs, bringing you everything from Vulcan Ranges to Globe Slicers at the lowest prices available, guaranteed.
