Sliced meat is the staple of many popular dishes in restaurants around the country. You can find some variety of sliced meat in everything from sandwiches to appetizers to main entrees for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The popularity of sliced meat in dishes can cause stress in the kitchens of many restaurants — finding a way to efficiently and quickly slice meat while keeping a consistent slice thickness can be difficult. Keeping an eye on the supply of sliced meat, quickly slicing fresh or cooked meat, avoiding the dreaded sorry, we’re out of that item situation takes a lot of time and energy.
There is a solution to the struggle of keeping up with the demand for sliced meat: investing in an industrial meat slicer for your restaurant.
A Smart Investment
A meat slicer machine is a smart investment for any restaurant looking to provide quality sliced meat quickly and easily. Here are four reasons why you should invest in a meat slicer for your restaurant:
Save Time in the Kitchen
One of the greatest difficulties in providing sliced meat is the time it takes to slice the meat. Hand slicing meat works, but it can take a while to go from cooked meat to sliced meat that’s ready to be served. This method is also limiting — you’ll only be able to provide sliced meat at the rate at which your employees can slice.
A meat slicing machine can provide you with perfectly sliced meat in a fraction of the time. Depending on the make and model, you can slice fresh or cooked meat in under 5 minutes. A great slicer can do so in less than two minutes.
Imagine the time you would save in the kitchen if you could slice meat in about a minute.
It might seem counter-intuitive, but spending money on a meat slicing machine will actually help you save money in the long run.
A small investment in a meat slicer up front gives you the flexibility to offer more sliced meat without increasing one of your biggest expenses: your kitchen staff.
A meat slicing machine doesn’t need health insurance, vacation time, or take sick days. It doesn’t need to be trained or require a uniform. It won’t show up late, require disciplinary action, take more of your income through taxes. It can slice more meat than an employee ever could, and costs a fraction of the cost of hiring someone.
Perfect Slice Thickness Every Time
One of the downsides of slicing meat by hand is the inconsistency in slice thickness. Depending on the employee, the meat, and even the day, your meat slice thickness can vary greatly — which communicates to your customers that you can’t provide the same quality and consistency of the food in your restaurant from day to day.
A meat slicing machine eliminates that inconsistency, providing you perfect slick thickness every time you use it — no matter who slices, what you slice, or what day you’re slicing.
Consistent slice thickness shows your customers that your kitchen provides quality food they can count on day after day.
