There are multiple types of businesses that can benefit from having a meat slicer available to them. While the most common might be a deli or sandwich shop, bars that offer food, food trucks, and others can get along better if they have the ability to slice their own deli meats. There are three main types of meat slicers, and the one your business will need is based on how much you plan to use it.
-Light Duty Meat Slicer
This is generally for home use, but a smaller restaurant operation, such as a small cafe that may sell sandwiches, would be able to get by with one of these. They are used when needed as opposed to daily, usually having a 7 inch blade. The motor is also fairly small, just needing about five watts to run. They are also easy to maintain and clean, plus the smaller size best benefits smaller businesses.
-Medium Duty Meat Slicer
These will be used in your slightly larger restaurant operation where slicing is a daily occurrence. The blade is much larger, ranging from 8 to 14 inches. The motor is also more powerful being anywhere from 100 to 130 watts. These slicers are also typically used in restaurants where more than just meats are sliced. They can be used to slice cheese, vegetables, and even fruits if necessary. They are work-horse type machines, and can handle several waves of slicing happening each day.
-Commercial-Grade Meat Slicer
The biggest upgrade from medium duty to commercial-grade is in power. A commercial-grade slicer will feature a 1/4 horsepower motor. This can be a great investment as it will make slicing incredibly efficient, but it must be more regularly maintained while light and medium duty slicers can get by with occasional maintenance.
