What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a delivery appointment within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. Additionally, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered.

13" Forged Stainless Steel Knife

The 13" hardened, forged stainless steel knife is great for a variety of slicing applications. The slice thickness can be adjusted up to 1 5/16" to allow for fine cuts or thicker slices. A 1/2 hp motor delivers the power needed to tackle constant slicing.

Automatic Product Carriage

This slicer automates the product carriage movement, allowing your employees to help customers or work on other tasks while the slicer does all the work!

Adjustable Settings

3 speeds (20, 40, and 60 slices per minute) and 3 stroke lengths (1/3, 2/3, and full stroke) let you adjust operation depending on what you're slicing and how much you want to slice.

Product Pusher

A metal pusher on the feed tray provides pressure against the product being sliced, preventing slipping, ensuring a consistent cut, and also guarding your hands from the slicer knife.

45 Degree Feed Tray

The feed tray is mounted at a 45 degree angle, which uses gravity to better hold the product against the knife for a more consistent product. It can accommodate rectangular products up to 10 1/2" x 6 3/4", square items up to 7 1/2", or round products up to 8 1/2" in diameter.

Removable Sharpener

The sharpener boasts a Borazon stone design to provide fast, precise sharpening, and it can be submerged during cleaning. It clips onto the feed tray and can be stored on the back of the unit when not in use.

Durable and Easy to Clean

A one-piece polymer base and feed tray give this slicer a clean, sleek look. However, this also reduces seams and hard-to-reach places where bacteria can grow, making the slicer as easy as possible to clean. It also has a kick stand to allow easier access under the unit.

Safety Interlock

Safety is a top concern in slicer operation, and that's why this unit comes with a mechanical gauge plate interlock. Once the feed tray has been removed for cleaning, heavy duty wires prevent the gauge plate from opening, shielding the knife and preventing injury to the operator.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the difference between the Berkel X13A and the X13AE slicers?
The Berkel X13A slicer has a gauge plate interlock, while the X13AE does not. This is an added safety feature that covers the knife blade during the cleaning process, reducing the possibility of cuts. If your employees who will be operating the slicer are less experienced or familiar with the equipment, the X13A might be the better choice.

    slicer slices automatic low quiet speed cost clean cheeses change

    This is the best automatic slicer we have ever owned. It holds up without any of the issues we have had with other brands. The price here is unbeatable. I haven't been able to find such a high quality slicer for such a low cost anywhere.

    from NFQ Posted on

    Absolutely love this slicer. This is very powerful! Very easy to clean too. It is very quiet on low speed, it does get louder the faster speed you use.

    from The purple monkey Posted on

    This slicer is everything I could imagine. We went from a manual slicer to this heavy duty automatic slicer. What a change! It is quiet, slices food efficiently and doesn't have any waste. I would recommend this slicer to anyone in the deli business. We use this slicer for whole roasted top round beef and it handles it perfectly. We also slice large amounts of cheeses and hard salamis. The slicer cuts through it seamlessly.
