What Is a Commercial Food Slicer?
A commercial food slicer and different types of manual shredders such as a commercial cheese shredder and a commercial meat shredder are some of the most versatile pieces of food-preparation equipment available for commercial kitchens nowadays.
These types of shredders and slicers are mostly operated manually and are not motorized nor do they run on electricity. For instance, most manual shredders and slicers can be lumped under the hand held food processor category. A hand food processor is an extremely versatile tool, which can help any busy kitchen slice, shred, chop, julienne, crinkle cut, string, and grate various food items such as cheese, vegetables, fruits, and even meat.
How Should You Choose the Ideal Hand Food Processor for Your Kitchen?
Before you go out to purchase your hand powered food processor, there are several important factors that you need to consider. First, and perhaps more importantly, you will need to determine the specific slicing and shredding needs and requirements of your kitchen so you can decide on the type of blade for your handheld slicer.
The next thing to remember is that the blades in a hand food processor has a number equivalent to a certain task that it can perform. For instance, a hand powered food processor—which is essentially a shredder—that is numbered from one to five is typically used for shredding and stringing potatoes and for cutting them into french-fry and crinkle-cut shapes. A third factor to look at is how the handheld slicer is attached to your kitchen counter. Some commercial food slicers feature a base attached to suction cups, while others are designed to clamp to the edge of the table. Hand-cranked food processors that can be clamped on are designed to be affixed more permanently compared to their counterparts that use suction cups.
