How to Clean a Slicer

How to Clean a Slicer

Welcome to Vollrath University! I'm Chef Rich and today we're going to talk about cleaning a slicer. In front of me, I have the industry standard; 12 inch blade, half horsepower slicer. This is the Vollrath 40797. The distinguishing feature of the Vollrath slicers is that we have the nonstick surfaces on all the food contact areas. This greatly reduces drag when slicing, but also aids in cleanup. To begin cleaning any slicer, always make sure the slicer is unplugged and the switch is off. Also make sure the gauge plate is in its fully closed position. Next, we want to open up the product tray and get that out of the way. We do that by removing this, and then opening up the tray. Next, we'll remove the blade face plate. We do this by removing the nut on the back side of the unit, and I don't remove this all the way. I actually use this when it's loose to push back against the face plate to make it easier to remove. Now I can remove the face plate. Now, we can go and clean the front side of the blade. Also, if we move the blade a little bit, we can clean the back side. On some Vollrath units, we have a safe blade removal tool, which I'll show you now. For Vollrath slicers that are equipped with the blade removal tool, first we have to make sure that we get the sharpening stones up and out of the way, this allows the removal tool to fit flush to the blade. Next then, we'll take the center of the blade removal tool and put it into the center of the slicer blade, making sure that the two pins on the tool fit into the two cutouts on the blade. We do this by centering the tool and then twisting until we see it into the blade. Next, we'll take the two screws and tighten them into the two points into the blade, make sure they're snug. I always make sure to shake it to make sure that it's securely fastened. When it is securely fastened now, we will simply back out the center nut and then remove it from the slicer. Now, we can clean the back side of the blade. Also, at this time we can clean the center of the slicer, as the bearings are sealed (if you can see inside this blue seal, that shows that the bearings are fully sealed), so here again, at this time we would go and clean the slicer, clean all the areas behind the blade, that normally are very, very difficult, if not impossible to clean, making that a very quick, easy, and once again, safe process. So now we have the blade removed. The way the safe blade removal system works is that the acrylic disc is actually slightly larger than the diameter of the blade. Therefore, the edge of the blade never exceeds the edge of the acrylic, making it safe now to handle. Without the safe blade removal system, I would never recommend removing the blade from the slicer. Now, let's re-assemble the slicer. We begin by placing the center of the blade removal tool into the center of the slicer. Next, we want to move the blade, and you'll actually hear it and feel it seat into place. Now, turn in the center nut on the blade, and you want to do that until snug. Now, we go and remove the blade removal tool by loosening these two nuts. Now, the tool comes off and we will re-assemble the face plate. We do this by simply putting the face plate into position and then on the back side again, inserting the screw, and tightening down the nut. Now, simply return the product tray to its position, and secure with the nut. That's how you, very quickly, and most importantly, safely clean your slicer using the Vollrath Safe Blade Removal tool.

This Vollrath 40955 13" gravity feed slicer features a rugged design and internal components that make it ideal for high-volume operations like larger restaurants or delis! It's great for slicing cheese and processed meat continuously throughout the day, allowing you to achieve precise and consistent slices up to 1" thick with the simple turn of an adjustment knob. Operation couldn't be any simpler thanks to a 35 degree gravity feed that maximizes productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort, as well as a built-in sharpener that always keeps your blade ready for action.

The slicer's body is made of rugged, hard-coated anodized aluminum while the blade is driven by a 1/2 hp motor and a durable, long-wearing belt for years of reliable service. A proprietary non-stick coating not only reduces drag but, along with the removable carriage, safe blade removal tool, and helpful kickstand, also makes the unit incredibly simple to clean! This slicer requires a 120V electrical connection for operation.
