Product Details

The Hobart HS8 Manual Slicer is a commercial grade tool used in restaurants, delis, and supermarkets to slice food items up to 1" thickness. This heavy-duty slicer comes with a 13" CleanCut™ knife is made from alloy that stays sharp and gives precise meat cuts. The knife shuts down on its own in case it's not used for more than 30 seconds. This easy-to-clean knife comes with a removable ring guard that catches food debris collected around it. There is a top-mounted sharpener that comes with Borazon stone to sharpen the blade within 5 seconds. This Manual Slicer has a detachable carriage system that needs to be in a convenient position to start the slicing process. The ergonomic handle gives a firm grip and support at the time of slicing.

Hobart Manual Slicer uses 1/2 HP belt-driven motor to run at 430 rpm and deliver efficient results. It comes with a double-action indexing cam that gives control over the slicer to slice, shave, and chip thin layers of food. Gauge plate of the Manual Slicer stays in position for precise and consistent slicing and as soon as this gauge plate is closed, the slicer turns itself off. Blade and ring guard have a stainless steel construction that gives them durability. The slicer base is easy to clean and made from anodized aluminum. It comes with 6' cord and plug for easy installation.
