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) allow you to adjust operation depending on what you're slicing and how much you want to slice.

Product Pusher

A metal pusher on the feed tray allows you to provide 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.

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.

Berkel X13-Plus Meat Slicer

Watch and learn as Executive Chef Justin Smilie uses Berkel's X13 meat slicer to produce smooth, even cuts every time! He'll walk you through the benefits, its easy controls, and its simple clean up.

Picking out the right commercial meat slicer for your business is an important choice. That’s why we’ve broken down the key factors to consider when shopping for the one that’s right for you. First, consider how frequently you plan to use your slicer. For light duty work, about an hour or less per day, an entry level slicer will work fine. The next step up is our mid-tier models, which offer more power and durability for several hours of use per day, at a price point affordable for most businesses. Finally, premium meat slicers are the best of the best, in terms of strength, durability, and consistency, giving you unmatched power that will stand up to constant daily use. Next, find whether you need an automatic or a manual slicer. Automatic units move product back and forth against a blade for safe and efficient high volume slicing. But for the average deli or sandwich shop, a manual meat slicer will do the trick. These units are probably what you’re most familiar with, requiring an operator to manually slide products across the blade for slicing. Other factors to consider when shopping for a meat slicer include blade size, horsepower, and ease of sanitation. We offer models with various blade sizes and power options, including many that are NSF listed. If you’re looking for more deli or butcher shop products, take a look at our selection of food paper wrap and deli take out containers.

Hey, I'm Justin Smillie. I'm the Executive Chef of Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria here in New York City and today we'll be demonstrating the Berkel X13 slicer. What we love about this slicer in the restaurant is it's easy to use, the variability of slicing, how easy it is to clean, and it's important to have the best slicers because we cure our own salami in house to sell at Alimentari, so the final product is what really comes down to it with the Berkel. The first thing we're going to slice today is some of our house-cured salami. The great thing about this slicer is how safe it is for all of your employees to use and how it actually helps you to line up smaller cuts, and again, it's all about versatility. Really smooth action and a very consistent, even slice. Now, take a look at this. Fantastic. So the next thing that we're slicing right now after removing the safety fence is slice some lardo, which is the cured fatback of the animal. What makes this machine so amazing is it never really cooks the fat, so you get smooth, even slices every single time. The next piece of meat that we're going to do is medium format toccata. What's great about this is we have nice, even slices all the way through, and again, what makes this slicer great is the versatility between large cuts and small cuts. Delicious! With this slicer, sometimes you need an extra hand in the kitchen and the expert team helps fulfill all those needs. So we can go, loading the fence in again for safety features, and on. I can be doing, you know, other tasks while it's doing all the work for me. And finally, we'll do our bresudo despala, which is the shoulder muscle of the animal. It's cured in the style of bresudo. Every slice is even and thin. So now that we've sliced all our meat and we've sent out all our boards, you get to the nitty-gritty, which is the cleaning of the machine. Under, it has its own little kick stand, which is a great advancement and in the machine itself on the rib table is a very wide, open architecture which makes it very easy to clean. It's also very quick to wipe down controls. What must be said about the Berkel X13 is how easy it is to sharpen. You just add on, which is super easy to clip in, the sharpening mechanism and you're ready to go slice some more. And as we demonstrated today with the Berkel X13, its ease of use, its ease of cleanliness, and I think the results show on the final plate.

    slicer Easy clean Hobart motor replaced set unit fare fall
    Fast shipping, order on Monday, show up on Thursday. Easy to set up, Easy to use. Easy to clean 10 minutes max. I set the slicer on a stainless steal table 30X30, it give you enough space for the slicer to do the work. 3 speed, 3 length very efficient. A nice feature is you are able to lift the slicer with a kick stand and clean the food debris under it
    I really, really wanted to fall in love with this slicer but unfortunately we have have a few issues with it since opening the box. First the automatic motor gave out on us the same day we unpacked it. Hobart service came out and replaced the motor and have since had no issues. Next came the depth gauge plate. It no longer dials down to zero and the lowest setting we can get the unit to slice is equivalent to about a 5. Hobart has come out on two occasions that has offered temporary relief but i have them coming back out tomorrow to try and fix it again. I only have a few weeks left in my warranty so hopefully we can get the unit working properly or replaced as we have have more than our fare share of issues.
