 4 Reasons Why Your Food Slicer Isn't Cutting It globe.png

For a customer, there’s nothing more disappointing than going to the grocery store and ordering their favorite deli meat, to only instead getting a pound of thick, uneven meat in return. So many delis, grocery stores and restaurants in the Pacific Northwest rely on a food slicer, and yet, too often they settle for low quality equipment that slices low quality meat and cheese. It’s possible that your food slicer isn’t cutting it, and we’re here to explain why.


Whether it’s the Health Inspector making a visit or a customer ordering a pound of roast beef, there’s no hiding an unsanitary slicer. A slicer that is easy to clean is not only safe, but necessary for any deli, grocery, restaurant, or hotel kitchen. You need a slicer that is accessible and provides convenient cleaning with easily removable components.


A telltale sign of a bad food slicer is a meat or cheese slice that is too thick or roughly cut. Precision control is a must. The ideal slicer gives the operator ultimate control cutting the thinnest slices of product with ease. If your current slicer is producing deli meats that have no consistency in thickness, it’s time to upgrade your meat slicer. When your operation is generating the thinnest slices with a proper sharpening system, it will generate more yield.


What happens when your slicer stops working? How can you diagnose the issue? Without a graphic interface, it’s nearly impossible to understand why the slicer isn’t performing. Another benefit of an easy-to-read user interface is the ability to set slice speed and stroke length and know exactly what the finished product will look like. Can your current slicer accommodate a larger meat or cheese product? In a high-volume foodservice operation, you need a heavy-duty slicer that can cut prosciutto and bacon as easily as turkey or ham.


For any piece of foodservice equipment, piece of mind should be a top priority for the operator. Replacement parts and service can cost an arm and a leg if your operation doesn’t utilize high-quality equipment. Food slicers undergo heavy usage throughout the day, especially in a grocery store, deli, or sandwich shop. Your operation needs a slicer that can withstand those demands and perform with consistency when called upon.
