Here, we explain 3 common mistakes to avoid when buying commercial meat slicers. All too often, our customers wish they had considered these factors prior to making the purchase. Have a read below and feel free to contact us to learn more.
1. Placing Cost Above Quality
Whilst cost tends to have a direct relationship with quality, a focus on cost alone should not be your only consideration. Many customers will opt for the cheaper product. Whilst all our products are high quality, different models do come at different prices. Each model has different features and will suit different customer requirements.
It is important that you check the features of the product before considering the price. For example, our fully-automatic slicer will save you time by stacking the sliced produce ready for display, whilst our superior Berkel meat slicers deliver perfected results by ensuring there is uniform slicing and reduced waste.
2. Little Research and Not Understanding Your Requirements
Commercial kitchen equipment is an investment. Before making the purchase, ensure that you have assessed your needs, your goals and your budget. Understanding your requirements is essential. You might also need to consult with your team or the person who will be using the commercial meat slicer to understand their views and requirements. We stock many models, each serving a different purpose. Whether you are after high volume, manual or automatic operation or small-scale equipment, we have many options to choose from.
3. Short-Term Assessment
Many customers look at the short-term. However, our commercial meat slicers last a long time, provided it is appropriately serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. When undertaking your research, consider the future needs of your organisation. If you are considering an expansion, you might want to select a larger model that can cope with higher volumes of production.
