Nemco Easy Flowering Onion Cutter

Spice up your menu with a dramatic flowering onion appetizer! This cutter from Nemco makes quick work of large or small onions to create even, consistent "petals". Flowering onions are the perfect way to attract customers and help boost sales at your grill or steakhouse.

Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, Product Expert at The WEBstaurant Store, and today I’m here to tell you how to take a big onion and turn it into big money. How is it that those steak houses are able to sell their steaks for so little? Well obviously their drink sales are a profit center, but the other reason is that they have profitable appetizers that really sell well. And there’s nothing like the sight and the smell of an onion in full bloom to attract your patron’s interest and their dollars. Now making a flowering onion like this is easy, providing you have the right tools. We have the right tool here for you, right now – It’s called the “Nemco Easy Flowering Onion Cutter”. Now that we have this onion prepped, I’m going to set it on the stool on the frame of the cutter. I’m going to put the root right in the hole of the stool and try to line it up and try to get it centered. Then I’m going to bring the handle down and let the blade set rest on top of the onion. I’m going to double check and make sure that’s centered. I need to adjust this just a little bit so that we’re right in the middle of the onion. Now what I’m going to do is apply firm pressure and just bring this handle down like that. Now my next step is to bring the handle back up and we’re going to let this ejector take the onion out of the blade set. And you can see how that works. Beautifully, perfectly-flowered onion. Now it’s ready to go ahead and batter, and bread, and fry, and serve to your customers. Now if you want to bloom a smaller onion, the Nemco Easy Flowering Onion Cutter comes with this adapter here which fits right into the stool on the frame. And what this does is it allows you to perfectly bloom even a smaller onion. Again, we’re going to go through the same steps as a large onion. And now we have a smaller appetizer for your customers. Now that you've seen how easy it is to bring an onion to full bloom, I wanted to let you know that all of the instructions for battering, breading, and frying are included with your unit. It’s all very simple. I just wanted to take a second to mention how to plate this up as well. Once your have your flowered onion, you’ll put it in a large, shallow bowl like this Homer Laughlin pasta bowl right here and then, what you’ll do is take the root out with the included core cutters. They have one for large onions and one for small onions. Once you take the root out, you can just place your sauce in the middle and then serve it to your customer.

The blooming onion is one of the most popular appetizers out there, not only because of its taste, but it also makes quite the appearance. And, most importantly for you, customers are willing to pay a premium for that presentation. Cutting a flowering onion by hand is both difficult and time-consuming, but with the Nemco Easy Flowering Onion Cutter, creating this dish has become quick and easy. Simply place an onion on the stool on the frame of the cutter. Then put the root right in the hole of the stool and line it up and get it centered. Once it’s centered, pull down the handle so the blade set rests on top of the onion. Check to make sure the onion is still centered. Then, firmly grasp the handle, pushing it down and slicing through the onion. Bring the handle back up and let the ejector remove the onion from the blade set. It’s now ready to be battered, breaded, and fried! One of the great things about the Nemco Easy Flowering Onion Cutter is that it can bloom a large onion for large appetizers or a small onion for a more conservative portion. To do this, the unit comes with an adapter that fits into the stool on the frame and accommodates a smaller onion. Core cutters are included too, so you can place the fried onion in a shallow bowl and remove the root with ease. 1 large and 1 small core cutter also come standard with the unit. A flowering onion is a great way to boost sales in steakhouses, grills, and bars. It’s delicious, it’s dramatic, and with the Nemco Easy Flowering Onion Cutter, it’s fast and easy to prepare!
