Vollrath Redco Manual Food Processors

Vollrath Redco Manual Food Processors

Welcome to Vollrath University. I’m Chef Rich, and we’re here today to talk to you about the Vollrath line of manual food processors. The Redco line of food processors can handle a wide variety of tasks in the kitchen: fruit, vegetable, and other types of prep as well. The reasons that we like manual food processors: speed- up to over ten times faster than traditional methods. Labor costs- many times if you’re using less skilled labor or even if you have an operation that uses high school labor, they can use the manual processors versus powered food processors. We like them because we have higher quality. Preparing something fresh at the time you’re going to use it is always going to be better than buying something that’s been prepared off-site in another facility, and consistency. I think that’s probably one of the most important things about the manual processors. No matter who prepares the fruit or the vegetable, or other products that you’re using, they’re always going to look the same. And consistency and any of those products just helps an operation achieve those results that they want to achieve each and every time. The InstaBloom II blooming onion machine. Notice the redesign on this is much safer and easier to use. Competitive designs, the blade assembly can fall on your hands when using it; whereas, the Redco design now has it spring-loaded so it always returns the blades to the top position. Two hand operation for safety, much faster than doing this with a knife; very durable unit. Let’s talk about a high-margin item, a blooming onion- very high-profit item in a restaurant. Redco 5.0, the only unit on the market that can dice, slice, wedge, and core. On the wedger we can do four, six, eight, ten, and twelve sections. Six and eight sections on the corer. But again, the only unit on the market that can do all four of these with a simple change-out of the blades. Notice this thermal set design on the blades makes this changing out super easy. Also this sled leg design on the 5.0. Added strength. And the fact that you can slide a six inch deep sixth size pan underneath the unit for easy prep. The Redco Lettuce King I. Slice and shred lettuce, cabbage, peppers, cucumbers, melons, and even cooked chicken breasts. Eliminates 75% of the time and costs of shredding lettuce with a knife. This unit is much faster. It comes in 3/16”, 1/4”, 3/8”, and 3/4" blade assemblies. Two-year warranty and NSF. The Redco easy clean can openers. Featuring five different styles, we can cut up to a 16” can height. Each unit uses the patented quick-release blade carrier for easy cleaning. No other unit on the market has as fast and easy blade cleanout as this unit has. And the easy clean blades are finished with an anti-bacterial coating for increased safety. Also each unit can be used in a permanent installation, or, with an easy clamp-on design, portable installations as well. All cutting mechanisms are dishwasher safe, and the BCL7000, the Vollrath stainless steel top-of-the-line unit is completely dishwasher safe. And don’t forget these units also carry the two-year warranty and are NSF Certified. The Redco Wedgemaster II. Constructed of durable, dishwasher safe polycarbonate material. It has a well-balanced, stable footprint. Lemons, limes, oranges, onions. It makes prep for a bar or seafood restaurant, lemons and limes, very fast, very easy. So I hope we’ve shown you then the advantages of using the Redco line of manual food processors. Again, the Vollrath line of Redco processors help with speed much faster than traditional methods. Over ten times faster in some cases than what you can do with a knife. Labor costs: we can use less skilled labor or even high school labor if you have that in your operation to prepare foods the same way each and every time. Higher quality preparing on-site. Remember, fresh is best versus something that’s been prepared off-site and stored for a while before it gets to your operation. And then consistency. Doesn’t matter which product line you’re looking at, consistent results help operators achieve consistent results in their restaurants, right? Okay, so remember any product that you have with the Vollrath line is always supported with parts and service from our Vollrath service department.

Customer questions about this product

What's the difference between a heavy duty can opener and a standard duty can opener?
Both heavy and standard duty can openers can open the same types of cans, and operate in a similar manner. A standard duty can opener is a bit smaller, with a shorter handle that may require more turns to open the same can. A heavy duty can opener is larger and features a more heavy-duty construction. As a result, it's capable of opening more cans per day. If you'd like more information about how to choose the right one for your needs, check out our can opener buying guide!

    It is nice having this can opener permanently mounted to a counter in our kitchen. Very easy to use and we have not found a can it cannot open.
    Purchased this heavy duty can opener 5 months ago. So far, so good. Opens a number 10 can in just four and one half turns. I like the stainless steel base. Won't rust or corrode like some others. Best part: how easy it is to remove the blade for cleaning and re-assembly.
    It's a great can opener! We use it every day and have for over a year and haven't had any problems. If it gets a little wonky from overuse, just tighten the screws up a bit and it's good as new.
    I’m very pleased with this can opener. I replaced an old cab opener with slipping gears with this new VollRath. It bites onto the cans tightly and removes their tops with minimal effort. When time to clean we just slide the whole unit from it’s housing and rinse it off, give it a pat dry, and you’re back in action. It’s also comforting to know that the blades are replaceable If one was ever to wear out or break.
    We have had this opener for almost 3 months. So far very pleased with it. The volrath can opener's gear grips the can very well compared to our "old reliable" can opener
    Thank you for your feedback, Dave. We are sorry your can opener is not working for you, this item is under warranty. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you about this shortly!
    We open a few gallon-size cans each day, and this can opener has done the job without complaint. I tried to get by with cheaper, light-duty can openers before, but they inevitably broke. This has been in daily service for a year and shows no signs of weakening.
    Great opener. I originally order this one so i won't have to drill hole on my table. It didn't hold tight enough so i ended up having to drill hole anyways. Otherwise this thing work great. The blade pushes right up against the can so no sharp edges at all on the can, only the lid. It open the can quickly. Love the product.
    had the hand held openers for years . many many of them too lazy to buy this sooner. Must have gone through 5 -8 per year on the hand held ones because hey keep breaking. This was perfect . my staff was grateful too.
    This heavy duty Can Opener makes tackling the large #10 cans super easy and efficient. What a great price for a tool we use every single day.
    We do not open tons of cans during the day, but I hate going through hand openers so fast. This can opener should last a long time and I love that you can mount it to the table.
    Great little CanOpener at a low cost easy to install so far working great. We went through a few of the manual handcrank and this is way better.
