Globe E-Series Slicers Shave Costs and Labor
Globe is a company well known for its slicers, a line of equipment that has snagged Foodservice Equipment and Supplies Magazine's Best in Class award in 2014 and 2015. This broad line offers solutions for any business, from supermarkets that need to slice meat and cheese for hours a day to the mom and pop eateries that serve a few sandwiches at lunch time. It's the latter segment of small, family-owned eateries that the folks at Globe had in mind when they introduced the Chefmate E-series line of commercial slicers.
These manual slicers offer the quality Globe is known for in a light-duty package. E-series slicers are economy models that can handle up to an hour or slicing a day. Having one can equip you to add a Monte Cristo, cheesesteak, or Rueben to your menu and supplement your café fare with handcrafted sandwiches made with freshly sliced meats and vegetables.

- Anodized aluminum construction is lightweight and durable.
- Special alloy knife is hard-chromed for corrosion resistance and edge retention.
- Top-mounted knife sharpener ensures that the blade is easy to keep sharp.
- Encased controls are protected from debris and moisture.
- Motor is protected from overheating by thermal overload switch.
- Angled feed chute takes advantage of gravity to pull the food through the slicer, making the slicer safe and convenient to use.
- Sealed splash zone keeps electronics protected and sanitary.
- Metal bottom enclosure helps keep the bottom of the unit free from food and dust.
- Rubber feet help keep the unit from slipping during operation.

Sanitation should be the No. 1 priority when it comes to taking care of any slicer, and Globe has designed E-Series equipment for easy cleaning. Each slicer's chute, slice deflector, knife cover, and sharpener is removable, allowing those components to be thoroughly cleaned. The bottom is enclosed to prevent food and other debris from contaminating the slicer's vital components, while the knobs and buttons are designed to keep food from settling underneath. These features help prevent bacteria and other foodborne pathogens from taking up residence in the slicer's nooks and crannies.
Consider purchasing these accessories along with your Globe E-Series slicer to keep your equipment running smoothly and safely.
