What to Consider When Selecting a Slicer:
- What you’re slicing
- How much you’re slicing
- How long you’re slicing
What Are You Slicing?
All commercial slicers are designed to slice meat. A heavier duty machine is recommended for higher volumes of cheese.
How Much Are You Slicing At Any Given Time?
Manual slicers are convenient for made-to-order or small batches. Automatic slicers help reduce employee fatigue and provide a consistent product.
How Long Are You Slicing?
- Less than 2 hours or 700 slices – Light Duty
- 2-4 hours a day or between 700 and 1400 slices – Medium Duty
- All day operation or over 1400 slices – Heavy Duty
