Countertop onion slicers can slice or bloom onions about three times faster than simply using a knife and board. Consider how thick you want your onion slices to be as well as how much countertop space you have available when looking. Onion slicers can create anywhere from 3/16” up to ½” thick onion slices. They operate by a pull down lever-type handle that pushes the onion through the evenly spaced cutting blades. The units also have rubber caps on the feet to prevent them from sliding around the tabletop. If your establishment offers onion flowers, or onion blooms, there are also models available that will “bloom” an onion but not slice completely through it, so your employees are still able to bread and fry the bloom.
Don’t cry! That onion slicer can save you time and money when you need to prepare large quantities of chopped onions, onion rings or onion blooms. Onions are both a spice and a vegetable, utilize this inexpensive ingredient in your appetizers, side dishes and main courses with the help of this amazing piece of food prep equipment. Chopping onions by hand can be an ordeal, make the process as quick and easy as possible with the help of an onion slicer. Even unskilled workers can produce consistent results as well as reduce the risk of injury all with the help of an onion slicer.
