Care of food slicers

Food slicers are obtainable both in manually and electrically operated versions. They are labor-saving devices, but can be dangerous if not used with care, so working instructions should be placed in a prominent position near the machine.

Care should be taken that no material likely to damage the blades is included in the food to be sliced. It is easy for a careless worker to overlook a piece of bone that, if allowed to come into contact with the cutting blade, could cause severe damage.
  • Each section in contact with food should be cleaned and dried carefully after use.
  • The blade or blades should be sharpening regularly.
  • Moving parts should be lubricated, but oil must not come into contact with the food.
  • Extra care must be taken when blades are exposed.
