Meat slicers may seem like equipment exclusive to butcher shops, but they come in handy for the at-home chef. A meat slicer is not limited to slicing only meat. There are numerous ways your LEM meat slicer can be put to use in your kitchen.

Easily Cut Fruits and Vegetables

Cut down on the laborious and extensive amount of time that it takes to cut up your vegetables or fruit. Slicing by hand can take up a great amount of time and can often lead to inconsistent slices. Fortunately, our meat slicers can cut through vegetables and fruits just as easily as they can cut through any meat. Use a LEM meat slicer for:

  • Making a big salad
  • Meal prepping for the week
  • Cutting vegetables for a soup or sauce
  • Preparing a fruit salad
  • Making a potato gratin

The more you use your meat slicer, the more you will experience the joy of freshly prepared and consistently cut produce. It is important to keep in mind that the meat slicer is not designed to cut through big seeds from foods such as avocado, mango, etc. This exception also applies to bones.

Get Uniform Slices Every TIme

Whether you are slicing pork belly, deli meat for sandwiches, fresh bacon, or steak, it is important to ensure consistency. By using your meat slicer to practice consistent slicing, you will definitely taste the difference. You’re able to serve equal amounts of food, meal prep with ideal portions, and above all, cook your food evenly.  
When you shop at LEM Products, you’ll find options for your preferred meat slicer.
