Tomatoes, lemons, limes, oranges and various other fruits or vegetables are often served in wedge form. To produce a large number of wedges three times faster than the knife and cutting board method, you will need a bulk wedger. When searching for a model that will suit your specific needs, consider where it will be used and how many wedges it creates. Bulk wedgers can make anywhere from four to a dozen wedges of any fruit that you decide to send through it.
Models are also available that can be mounted to the wall or simply rest on the countertop. Wall-mounted units tend to be permanent structures, so make sure you place it in an area that is conducive to an efficient food preparation area. As an additional note, you will want to remember to clean your bulk wedger after each use. Fruits and vegetables like tomatoes and oranges are highly acidic. If left dirty for too long, the acid can eventually corrode the metal components of the wedger.
If you use your bulk wedger for more than one type of fruit or vegetable, don’t forget to clean it in between uses this will help you avoid cross contamination, which is as important for flavor as it is for reducing food allergen contamination. A bulk wedger, like the ones we carry in this section, will be a great piece of food prep equipment for use in a bar to prepare fruit garnish, in a restaurant to prepare salad ingredients and many more applications.
