Hobart slicers parts are a vital piece of equipment for any deli or grocery store. These commercial meat slicers have the versatility to provide fresh cuts of cheese, fruit, vegetables and more. With that versatility, however, comes the responsibility to properly clean and sanitize the equipment. Failure to do so can result in bacteria build-up, which could potentially contaminate deli items and make customers ill. In this article, we’ll go over the proper way to disassemble, clean and sanitize a Hobart Slicer.
How do you clean and sanitize a slicer?
When designing its equipment, Hobart Food Equipment is mindful of the ways it can support food safety in retail grocery stores, especially deli departments, said Grace Strotman, Hobart marketing specialist. This includes minimizing crevices and bolt holes where bacteria can settle and making sure that its equipment has removable parts for easy cleaning. For example, the Hobart HS Series slicers feature cleaning legs that elevate the base of the machine and give operators better access to hard-to-reach areas for thorough cleaning. They also have a tilting carriage that can be locked so operators can easily clean the knife area and its reversible roller transport system. These features help ensure that the slicer is clean and sanitized for each use.
