Slice Food and Preparation Costs with a Globe Slicer!

Slicer: Why Buy?

Ah, the slicer. Not only does it slice food, but also slices prep time and employee fatigue. Productive employees and higher profits creates a win-win for your foodservice operation, right?

Sizing Guide

When it comes to purchasing a slicer, it’s important to choose one that meets your standards. Slicers come in light, medium and heavy duty ranges. If slicing little to no cheese in a day, choose a light duty slicer over heavy duty, which is ideal for frequent slicing.

Length of slice time also plays a role in sizing. Consider the following per day usages to help you choose the best fit for your operation:

  • Light Duty: Less than two hours or 700 slices
  • Medium Duty: Two to four hours or up to 1400 slices
  • Heavy Duty: All day operation or over 1400 slices

Next, think about how much slicing needs to be done at a time. Is it only in small batches? Or in bulk? Manual slicers are great for small batch slicing (i.e. made to order), while an automatic is necessary for continuous bulk slicing.

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
