Globe's Premium 13" slicer is a manual, gear driven unit. High volume applications are where this model will work best. The operator has the ability to adjust the angle and the thickness of the cut for a consistent and flexible slice. Once again, Globe offers the EZ-Glide system which reduces friction, and allows the operator to maneuver the handle back and forth with little effort. The kickstand feature allows for ease of cleaning. This comes with a 15-year warranty on the knife drive gears, a two year warranty on parts, and a one year warranty on labor. This unit meets NSF standards.
